Sources Describe Bin Laden’s Cowardly Last Moments in Compound

Sources involved in the operation that took down Usama bin Laden told Fox News the terrorist leader acted "scared" and "completely confused" in his final moments, "shoving his wife" at the Navy SEAL who ultimately shot him.

The information helps clarify the conflicting details about what exactly happened toward the end of the 40-minute raid on bin Laden's northern Pakistan compound. Sources who were part of the mission said bin Laden acted in a "cowardly manner" when confronted. Fox News has also learned that while bin Laden was unarmed, he was standing near the door within reach of two weapons -- an AK-47 and a Makarov handgun that are now in U.S. custody. The handgun is a 9mm semi-automatic Russian pistol, standard issue in the Russian military until 1991.

A senior U.S. official also told Fox News that only one of the five people killed in the raid was carrying a weapon and firing. The detail seemed at first to diverge from White House accounts claiming the Navy SEALs encountered resistance throughout the raid and were engaged in a firefight during much of the 40-minute operation. However, the scene was described as chaotic, with U.S. forces encountering barricades and women in the compound screaming and attacking the men.

Another U.S. official said there were "at least a half-dozen weapons" found at the compound. The first person the SEALs encountered at the guest house "immediately opened fire" before being killed, the official said. As the SEALs moved through the compound, bin Laden's son Khaled rushed down from the third floor to the second floor and confronted the SEALs, who killed him.

The U.S. team, in their training, had anticipated that bin Laden had a suicide vest and that the house was rigged. The official bristled at the notion that the compound was somehow an easy target with reports that only one person was armed.

"He was the one guy shot who had a gun in his hand and was firing when he was shot -- other weapons were at the scene," the official said. "When the SEALs reached the third floor, after resistance and physical barricades, Usama bin Laden did not immediately surrender. When someone like UBL who has said he wants to kill as many Americans as possible, doesn't 150 percent surrender, you have to assess as a threat."

Another source familiar with the operation said the first shot fired at bin Laden, when he poked his head out of his bedroom, missed. That detail was first revealed by Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., based on information he got during a classified briefing to members of Congress. Afterward, two different SEALs fired on bin Laden, one hitting his chest and one hitting his forehead.

President Obama, after spending the day in New York City to mark bin Laden's death and meet with the families of Sept. 11 victims, plans to meet Friday with "some" if not all of the SEAL team members who carried out the daring raid. A senior U.S. defense official told Fox News he will meet with members of the team at Fort Campbell, Ky., along with those who flew them to the scene in helicopters.

The Obama ADMN. has changed the story on this raid and kill about a dozen times since Sunday night. This should make everyone even more sceptical of what ever is released about this raid or from WHATEVER this ADMN. ever sasy again.

I can't really say that I care about the details. While it would be amusing to know that he crapped his pants or begged for mercy, the end result is the only thing that truly matters.

I liked this part:

"As the SEALs moved through the compound, bin Laden's son Khaled rushed down from the third floor to the second floor and confronted the SEALs, who killed him."

I can see obl's son running down the stairs yelling at our guys in that gibberish-sounding language of theirs, obnoxious as hell. Without a word one of our guys one-shot-kills him and then moves on without breaking stride. Classic.

I know these guys are probably better under stress than just about anyone on earth... but in such a chaotic scene, with so much on the line, I bet if you asked the guys who were actually involved in the raid, you'd probably get 2-3 different stories, at least.

That probably accounted for the piss stain.

The shit stain was when he peeked through that doorway and saw the Navy Seal already drawn...

I'd be willing to bet that each SEAL was wearing a video camera and mic.

Sorry, but my plan has always been that if anybody broke into my bedroom I'd shove my wife at them. I can't fault the guy.

A detail that I continue to find interesting is the statement that he had 500 Euros and 2 telephone numbers sewn into his clothing.

Now, presumably he wasn't expecting to have American visitors, so does this mean that he has 500 Euros and 2 telephone numbers sewn into every outfit he owns? It seems like it'd be a good idea to buy up stuff at his upcoming garage/estate sale.
