A New Timeline for OBL Raid

Press secretary Jay Carney just read a statement of the events prepared by the DOD. Here’s his exact quote:

“. . . The team departed the scene via helicopter to the USS Carl Vinson in the North Arabian Sea. . .”

He then went on to talk about bin Laden’s burial.

Hmmm. According to CNN, the SEALs first went to Bagram AFB in Afghanistan:

A Senior US Official tells CNN 10 hard drives, 5 computers and more than 100 storage devices which includes discs, DVDs and thumb drives were taken from the compound.

The senior us official also says the White House received 3 sets of photos yesterday. The photos included:

1. Photos of OBLs body at a hangar after he was brought back to Afghanistan. This is the most recognizable with a clear picture of his face. The picture is gruesome because he has a massive open head wound across both eyes. It’s very bloody and gory.

Also, look at a map. That’s a long flight for a helicopter over Pakistani air space.

Some clarification, please.
