After giving contradictory versions of events for two days following the killing of terror mastermind Osama bin Laden, including misidentifying which of his sons was killed and wrongly saying bin Laden's wife died in gunfire, the White House Tuesday said bin Laden was unarmed when Navy SEALs burst into his room and shot him to death.
In latest twist to the events the White House Tuesday said Osama bin Laden was unarmed when Navy SEALs burst into his room and shot him to death, another change in the official account that raised questions about whether the U.S. ever planned to capture him alive.
Ok let's count the errors mentioned in this article
His wife died- She didn't die
His son died- Oops wrong son
OBL had a gun and used his wife as a human shield- that dastardly coward.
Oh wait a minute, no gun, the SEAL's just shot him dead.
Here are the excuses-
'"We provided a great deal of information with great haste in order to inform you."
And obviously some of the information was, came in piece by piece and is being reviewed and updated and elaborated on"
Or perhaps embellished? Or just plain changed when the original story has no traction?
"People are demanding the equivalent of a movie, they want to know scene by scene the most trivial details."
Is that what people are demanding? A fictional action movie? Or is that what is being presented.
Oddly enough I thought people would just want the truth. And some concrete evidence.
"The circumstances for the Navy SEALs involved hardly lent themselves to careful note-taking."
How is it that note taking is necessary? The SEAL's are trained to deal with any and all circumstances under all conditions. Now, they are being made to sound as if they are children, studying for a test and needing cheat notes. Is this credible?
" the contradictory statements seem certain to raise suspicions about the White House's version of events, given that no independent account from another source is likely to emerge. "
No independent account is likely to emerge. That is so gosh darn convenient!
The news that OBL had been killed and buried at sea was released after OBL was buried at sea.
Therefore, it goes without saying his alleged dead/alive wife should have already been correctly identified as either dead or alive.
The alleged dead son, the correct one should have already been identified.
In fact if we are to believe this raid on the "compound" in Pakistan was preplanned. It quite safe to assume that everyone inside had previously been identified.
Making identification of the dead, wounded or undead, very easy.
Wether or not OBL was armed and gave fight would have been a matter of fact statement, easily corroborated by any one present.
Does anyone seriously believe a Navy SEAL would not have been aware he was being fired at, or not, by OBL? Come on! Not credible.
If, as is being claimed, Obama and his team were able to monitor real time events, then what legitimate reason is there for all the contradictions?

Obama watched Osama raid in real time OR Bin Laden: How Obama team saw drama unfold
"Officials have offered varying accounts of how President Barack Obama and his team in the White House Situation Room were able to monitor the raid. Without providing details on the technology involved, Brennan said that "we were able to monitor in a real-time basis the progress of the operation from its commencement to its time on target to the extraction of the remains and to then the egress off of the target."They had a front row seat.
Look at Hilary, wow!

Interesting to note the link for that pic is-
"entertainment"? Is the media surreptitiously giving readers a message?
So why the contradictions?
It's easier to recall truth, then remember lies.
