my mistake

It's ok

But for real, more than just you and who you respond to are trying to follow the discussions. If you quote them properly, everyone knows who you're talking to and what the context is. Just keeps things a little more organized

fwiw, I personally was quite surprised that someone with that many mortal enemies would ever allow himself to be without a deadly weapon close at hand.

CNN
Quote:
Materials taken from the compound included 10 hard drives, five computers and more than 100 storage devices, such as disks, DVDs and thumb drives, a senior U.S. official told CNN Tuesday.
Well, that together with the number of people scattered throughout the compound (about two dozen) explains why it took 40 minutes.

It sounds like there was a firefight, and that Osama wasn't a part of it. He was apparently the last person in the compound that the Americans saw. He supposedly made a move interpreted as reaching for a weapon, and they fired at him.

I wondered about that as well, and figured probably not. To me, the most likely scenario was one of "better safe than sorry"...if he made any move like he may have a weapon, or towards a weapon, while he may technically be unarmed, they had just reason to shoot to protect themselves.

Ooo! My hypothetical scenario is supported by the feds. Woot!
