Actually, if you read the news stories: “Osama bin Laden was killed by a bullet fired by a United States Navy SEAL during a 40-minute helicopter assault on a fortified compound believed to have been purpose-built to hide the al-Qaeda leader.”
It’s funny, cause Osama was killed by a bomb, as stated approx. 2,387 times by every news source reporting on it.
One more source to follow on how…
It was announced on Sunday, May 1, 2011 that Osama Bin Laden was killed by US troops on the ground in a 40-minute firefight. He was killed by the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) and four men, including Osama, died in the attack. No American was wounded or killed.
Osama was shot at least once in the head. The US has custody of his body. President Obama ordered the attack after receiving intelligence of bin Laden’s location in a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The US first received this intelligence in August 2010. Bin Laden was the mastermind of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and has been in hiding for nearly a decade.
