Seal Team Six author on 60 minutes tonight
 
Watching the guy who wrote the book on the Bin Laden Raid on 60 minutes right now.

They used makeup artists to change his looks and they altered his voice, but this is so much clearing than other interviews

When they deployed to Aghanistan, they had a female CIA agent with them who had been tracking Bin Laden for 5 years. He said she deserves a lot of credit.

EDIT: She was very convinced Bin Laden was there and everything she told the SEALs turned out to be correct. One thing was that Bin Laden's son Khalid lived on the second floor.

The helicopter ride was one and a half hours mostly in Pakistani territory. Also Abbottabad was having a blackout that night......it's not been revealed if that was coincidence or not.

He was in the helicopter that crashed and his friend almost slid out of the open helicopter door.

What did you think about when the helicopter started going down?

"This is going to suck."

Says the helicopter pilot deserves mad props. Perhaps even more so than the guy who shot Bin Laden.


Compares the improvisation that happened on the ground to "pick up basketball."

The Seals weren't exactly sure it was Bin Laden they killed on the third floor, so a Seal who spoke Arabic asked one of the children in the house who lived on the third and he identified him as Osama and then Osama Bin Laden.

The CBS News site has the video up including some extras like this one about the makeup process they used.

I also want to note that the author says nothing in his book in political against one side or the other. So he is not part of the Swiftboat Seals who have come out recently and were debunked just as quickly.

Yemen just announced they killed the deputy regional head of Al-Qaeda in Yeman.

Yemeni armed forces have killed Said al-Shehri, a Saudi national seen as the second-in-command of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), a government website said on Monday.
