As the details trickled in yesterday on Osama bin Laden’s last moments alive, White House counterterrorism chief John Brennan revealed that when cornered by U.S. troops, bin Laden used one of his wives as a shield. The woman was killed in Sunday’s raid, but it was unclear if she shielded him willingly. The force that carried out the raid on the Pakistan compound where bin Laden was hiding has been identified as SEAL Team Six of the “Naval Special Warfare Development Group.” A live video feed of the assault was available in both the conference room and at the Situation Room at the White House. Brennan said that when President Obama learned of bin Laden’s death, he reacted by saying, “We got him.”
