It's a very sad thing, and I'm sure a lot of people are going to take it the wrong way. "If they were unarmed, why were they shot?" The fact is the SEAL team could not know what kind or degree of resistance they might face, and they had to move very swiftly. I don't think they would have shot anyone who was very clearly surrendering...but the problem was things were moving so quickly, out of necessity, that they probably weren't able to give people that much time to figure out what was going on and decide how to react.

Wondering if some died w/o realizing it was US Commandos in their midst thus not armed. A beautifully planned and executed raid. Well done.

Some horse's ass at another site suggested they "should have shot him in the leg or something" and taken him prisoner. It just happens that I managed to run 50 feet after being shot through the thigh many years ago. I would have died in a few minutes without medical attention but could nevertheless have picked up a gun and fired it if that had been the situation.

Thank you for the perspective. I was appalled before reading the comments. It's hard for many of us to see that perspective on our own, including myself. Thank you.

"Only One Man Armed in Bin Laden Compound"...they forgot to count the 24 heavily armed SEALS.

SK: Since this post remains high up the "Featured" list, could you change the title to: 'Only One Armed Man in Bin LadenCompound'? :D
