    WASHINGTON — No guts, no glory.

    The nail-biting, 40-minute clandestine operation that resulted in Osama bin Laden's death could have been a calamitous political and military failure; a bloodbath in Pakistan that left U.S. forces and scores of civilians dead or captured by America's most ferocious enemy.

    Or, as it happened, it could unfold largely in textbook fashion – delivering a stunning success for the often maligned intelligence community, a political and national security coup for a struggling president and revenge for Americans still carrying vivid memories of Sept. 11.

    By secretly sending a team of special operations forces into an enemy fortress in a suburban neighborhood of a sovereign country, President Barack Obama chose the path of greatest risk, but also greatest reward.

    There were so many ways it could have gone wrong.

    As U.S. officials evaluated their options, Obama asked for a gut check from top members of his national security team.

    The various plans, White House counterterror chief John Brennan said, were "debated across the board and the president wanted to make sure, at the end, that he had the views of all."

    And here is the vid they put out of how it happened. I know that killing the guy was the best thing but heck i sure would like to have the body here at home. In the vid it is obvious that obl was unarmed. I wonder what he did to resist? Did he throw a vase? It sure would have been nice to take him in and tourture him a bit before he was hung from a tree.
