ISLAMABAD - Photographs acquired by Reuters and taken about an hour after the U.S. assault on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad in Pakistan show three dead men lying in pools of blood, but no weapons.


The photos, taken by a Pakistani security official who entered the compound after the early morning raid on Monday, show two men dressed in traditional Pakistani garb and one in a t-shirt, with blood streaming from their ears, noses and mouths.

None of Osama, but several of others killed on the compound.That helecopter looks like a toy and It's much too small to carry anyone...Could be a new type observation UAV ?The rotor blades are too short to lift much ! Compare the size of the Paki solder to the overall size of the chopper.It's tiny .......

Megi, that is the rear rotor. Not the main lift rotor.

Yeah, has to be. Definitely modified one though. I'm pretty sure they used UH-60's, and I've never seen a tail rotor for a UH-60 that looked like that.

Hey ...

Know what? I wasn't afraid to look at these photos ... actually saw glimpses of them first on the six o'clock Fox Report.

They are NOTHING compared to what those savage followers of Osama did to Daniel Pearl, live on video, nor the 4 guys that burned to death in a car, whose burned to a crisp bodies were later hung from a bridge for all to see.

*Those* photos are forever emblazoned (not quite sure is the word I want, but think it is) in my mind.

Sorry, I have no pity for them, they knew full well what their friend and /or family member had wrought on innocent Americans and others around the world.

From the source.


The tail assembly is unusual, and could indicate some kind of previously unknown stealth capability.

Maybe one of our Mil. fly boys here can ID that thing better.

Mission helo was secret stealth Black Hawk

The helicopters that flew the Navy SEALs on the mission to kill Osama bin Laden were a radar-evading variant of the special operations MH-60 Black Hawk, according to a retired special operations aviator.


The helicopter’s low-observable technology is similar to that of the F-117 Stealth Fighter the retired special operations aviator said. “It really didn’t look like a traditional Black Hawk,” he said. It had “hard edges, sort of like an … F-117, you know how they have those distinctive edges and angles — that’s what they had on this one.”


In addition, “in order to keep the radar cross-section down, you have to do something to treat the windshield,” he said. If a special coating was applied to the windshield it is “very plausible” that would make the helicopter more difficult to fly for pilots wearing night-vision goggles, he said. The helicopters carrying the SEALs arrived over the bin Laden compound at about 1 a.m. Monday local time. One crash-landed in the courtyard and was so badly damaged it was unable to take off again.

From what I read - these pics were taken after the fact.

Ummm... yeah. They were taken by Pakistani forces, about an hour after the whole thing went down.

No specification on how, but I must assume some manner of HE set off by thermite or grenades or something.

My guess is that the longer parts of the rotor were broken off in the destruction.

Sorry - I meant that we cannot necessarily trust what is shown.

They were using MH-60's and MH-47's the SF versions of the Chinook and Blackhawk.

IMO that looks like what's left of the rear rotor boom and that big rear stabilizer...except most of the control surface is gone.

I've seen a lot of helicopters in my day flying around, none of them look like that. I'm guessing whatever contraption that once was is a pretty intense piece of machinery.

Was it true the magic negro flew one of those intense pieces of machinery into combat? By the way he sounded he personally popped OBL a new asshole in his forehead.

Nope, of that I am fairly certain.

It's the tail rotor.

Helicopters have two rotors, a primary that provides lift and thrust, and a much smaller tail rotor for stabilization. The additions to the assembly appear to be panels or baffles designed to reduce the radar signature and rotor noise.

I thought for a second that it was a Comanche but I heard the stopped the line before production.
