Can't Wait To Get The Details

The White House said OBL was killed in an operation at Abbottabad, Pakistan. Could that explain this local news report from earlier today?

ABBOTTABAD: Three loud blasts were heard near the Pakistan Military Academy (PMA) Kakul Road late Sunday night and a military helicopter also crashed. Sources told Geo News that heavy firing was heard in the area before the chopper crashed.

Windowpanes of the nearby buildings and houses were smashed due to the intensity of the blasts, the sources said. Eyewitnesses said first sound of heavy firing was heard and then there was a huge blast. Fire erupted at the scene of the occurrence and according to latest reports police and fire brigade teams were rushing towards the blast scene. Security forces cordoned off the entire area and military helicopters were also hovering over the area.

I'm looking forward to going to the office in the morning and seeing the cable traffic.

The website has been locked up for 4 hrs. Sounds like lots of interest in the Pakistani world. gwb

Go Navy!! Looks like Osama had a fortress embassy! Maybe he was a visiting professor at the war college?

It sounds like it took one of the helicopters to carry all the explosives. They must have expected more than 3 guys and a cleaning lady? It will be interesting to see what they do with the two wives they captured given how connected the Bin Ladens are. gwb
