BREAKING NEWS: Osama Bin Laden Confirmed Dead

By The ITS Crew

A CBS News Pentagon Correspondent is reporting that Bin Laden was killed with a Sniper shot to the head in Pakistan, where SOF Forces have recovered the body.

Stay tuned for updates to this story as we’re waiting for the President to make a statement shortly.

UPDATE: President Obama addressed the nation at 23:36 Eastern time, announcing that US Special Operations have conducted an operation tonight deep inside a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan that has left Osama Bin Laden dead after a firefight. The body of Bin Laden has been taken into custody by the US and moved to Afghanistan and there were no American or civilian casualties.

CBS News is reporting that HUMINT (Human Intelligence) was heavily relied on during this operation as would be expected. They also noted that the President did not alert the Pakistani government until after the fact, which is further proof of a strategic operation.

The President recognized the tireless and heroic work of the Military and Counterterrorism professionals that has led to this achievement for the United States, but cautioned that we will remain vigilant.

Hundreds of people have gathered outside the White House in celebration and throughought the country. We can assure you everyone here at ITS Tactical is celebrating as well!

UPDATE II: Here’s a great link that goes into the unclassified details of the DevGru (Navy SEALs) Operation that brought down Bin Laden.
