The White House is walking back key claims about the moment US Navy SEALS reached Osama bin Laden and killed him.
“The White House backed away Monday evening from key details in its narrative about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, including claims by senior U.S. officials that the Al Qaeda leader had a weapon and may have fired it during a gun battle with U.S. forces. Officials also retreated from claims that one of bin Laden’s wives was killed in the raid and that bin Laden was using her as a human shield before she was shot by U.S. forces.”
Why has the Obama administration gotten off message so soon? Don’t they realize they’re making it ridiculously easy for the conspiracy theorists?
