Lethal Weapon? [Update: Reuters Has Now Pulled The Entire Article]

Tyler Durden's picture

Update: Reuters has now pulled the entire article and associated pictures.

Navy SEALs know all about the lethal potential of super soakers:

"One photo shows a computer cable and what looks like a child's plastic green and orange water pistol lying under the right shoulder of one of the dead men."

Luckily, the release of this photo of a man who obviously died during water pistol-based self defense will not, unlike that of a picture of a dead Osama, anger the billions of Muslims around the world.

All four death photos, along with the two shots of the scuttled U.S. helicopter, are posted here:

That wreckage doesn't look like part of any Blackhawk I've ever seen...  WTF is that?

This looks like an assassination of unsuspecting targets.  Four dead and three are by head-shots?  Hmmmm....   And if that was OBLs safe-house, do you mean to tell me that his "guards" weren't armed - and wouldn't have heard 2-4 helicopters coming in [with one crashing]? This whole thing stinks.

Looks like a bit from a Pave Low. That's a chopper very popular with Special Ops back in the day, I've been out for 8 years so don't know if they still use it.

Those Sikorskis are BIG mofos.  Unless they vacuumed up most of the debris, I don't see how it could be one of those.

Maybe an UAV?

According to a Fox News report, that tail contains technology DOD doesnt want falling into enemy hands (specifically named China). Was never meant to be left behind. They are currently scrambling to get it back.

This story gets more and more fubared.

AP/Reuters has put the story with photos back up.

As for the helicopter... ABC reporting it's a stealth helicopter rumored to have existed but never confirmed - http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/top-secret-stealth-helicopter-program-reve...

What did Shemp give you the boot?  ;-)

Sorry mouse stutter. I had heard they used Shithooks, but that bit in the picture I could swear is from a Pave Low.

I thought Ron Jeremy was at Gitmo?

Agreed.  Kind of looks a little bit similar to the RAH-66 tail rotor, but not quite.  I suspect it's something using the Comanche's stealth technology applied to a 60L DAP that the teams get to play around with.  Who knows.

The empennage is not from a 53J or 53E. Look at the shape. And size. Further, the burned out fuselage section reveals 4 rotor blades. It's a 60.

And, do you really think the SEALs would have left any weapons behind? They took them, along with OBL's body.

These use special stealth tech and have spoofing IFF transponders as well as other high tech goodies.  The Chinese are special friends of the Pakis and some Chinese Army is sitting on the border of India with their Paki BFF's.


The Chinese would love to reverse engineer this stuff.

Some people are saying that it's the remains of a super-secret stealth-modified Black Hawk. The article is up on Navy Times ... www.navytimes.com

According to an ABC story, all electricity and cell phone service went out in the moments before the raid and stayed off until the operation was complete. Apparently the DOD has no comment about the reports of the outage.

The release of the photos of Bin Laden are delayed probably because the company who manufactured his most recent birth certificate are on vacation spending some of the tax payer loot they made off of that job.

john39's picture

one wonders if this guy was just some innocent random guy, chosen for this grisly part in the bin laden charade. And why is it ok to release this pic of a dead muslim, but not a pic of a dead bin laden? more and more this looks like a ritual to me, in the same way that 911 was an occult ritual.

It was apparently sold to Reuters by a Pakistani Security guard on the scene.

It's a muslim who is sleeping it off after playing a game of super soaker which where filled with red coloured water.

How do we know it wasn't somewhere in L.A.?

nyse's picture

I dont know... looks like pigs blood from here.

Harlequin001's picture

Why would you bother with pigs blood? It's not as if there's a shortage of people over there you can shoot is there?

Is Saudi King Abdullah grieving? If not I suspect Osama isn't really dead and that he's just gone home quietly after a good rant... and some other paint ball enthusiasts got shot to hide the fact..

Dr. Porkchop's picture

How do you know he's a muslim with a red liquid filled super soaker? He could be agnostic! Nobody took the time to ask his opinion.

el Gallinazo's picture

Reminds me of the old adage, "Never go to a gun fight with a water pistol." At least he was armed, as opposed to the dead women.

Where did the Towers go? by Prof. Judy Wood.  Damned interesting and some great Tesla history.  A serious engineer.

gall batter's picture

agree.  horrible.  depressing.

Mercury's picture

Fuck that.  If you're living with OBL in a fortified compound you've dug your own grave.  It's probably a sex toy for diddling little boys anyway.

Mercury's picture

Perhaps it ran away with the dish (see trav7777's news bulletin below).

Haven't you guys seen the latest news?

A fucking 12 year old kid in the neighborhood was hanging out with them, they even gave him a couple of rabbits to take care of.  He'd go over to their house apparently all the time.

YOU TELL ME that motherfucking nobody KNEW that OBL was in this "hideout."  A goddamned neighbor boy knew him!  As this was an area of apparent means, you have to wonder whether or not EVERYBODY knew wtf was up.  This shit stinks to high heaven.

If a fuckin neighbor kid knew OBL was living there and met him a bunch of times and got pets from the dude, how the fuck could the CIA or ISI have NOT known?

navy62802's picture

It's called diplomacy. Of course Pakistan knew bin Laden was living there. What I find shocking is that our multi-billion dollar intelligence/national security state can claim with a straight face that it had no clue ... after dude had been living in the SAME COMPOUND FOR SIX YEARS!!@

So true Navy..

Unfortunately, using the media to tell a story is like using a bullhorn at a wedding to tell your buddy the bride's a whore.  

Diogenes's picture

How come a 12 year old kid can find drug dealers in any ghetto but the cops can't?

Very mysterioso.

Trav, clearly the I in CIA is a name, not a job description or requirement...

"and its always man's defeat"

That's not what God said:

"And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers"

I came close to buying it in those towers that day. This isn't goulish or sad to me.


falak pema's picture

was he present on 9/11 in NY, this guy? Who knows who he was!

Go Fuck Yourself.

Let me guess, you're another 9/11 conspiracy wing nut.
