13. This is my very same thought.
The photos were stark and rapt in attention and facial expression and body language.

The raid was analygous to Carter and the failed embassy hostage rescue in Iran.

The technology is there for each Seal to have a helmet-live cam.

I don't know the identitiy of everyone in those photos but recognize about half.

I am going forward that this was OBL and the action was well planned and monitored and the data is still being distilled.

Brennan and others may have spoken out of turn. There are articles sourced in China and elsewhere that are gross dis-information.

Is the USA and DoD capable of disinfo? Yes.

The civilian government in Pakistan has a problem in at least the ISI and military.

I believe most Muslims and individual humans in general want life liberty and happiness for their family and associates.

People do not want war, violence, need, nor lack of meaning regardless except for a minority, many sociopath (and some very "successful")

Read Scott Peck's "People of the Lie".

POTUS Obama said in his campaign rhetoric about engaging Pakistan and he did just that and for that I give credit.

I did not agree with OTUS Obama during nor since the campaign in Pakistan, and even now worry that the action will have blowback and bring to the surface serious issues with Pakistsan.

However, POTUS Obama has been right on Pakistan and I was wrong.

We need to turn from terrorism and war to politics and get the troops home from Afghanistan.

Pakistan has a problem with religious ideologues. So does the USA.

I hope for the best.

The photos expressed POTUS Obama's (and HRC's) seriousness of the risk in the raid.
