It was at midnight 1:00 pm(Pakistan local time). Many people were in deep sleep. It was then  U.S helicopters flew in and over the area called abbottabad, which is a Garrison town. Half kilometer away from Pakistani military academy. For anyone who is following U.S.A  its and obvious picture that the operation that was carried out in the early hours is an culmination point of various events that had happed earlier.



Intelligence officials discovered the compound in August while monitoring an al-Qaida courier. The CIA had been hunting that courier for years, ever since detainees told interrogators that the courier was so trusted by bin Laden that he might very well be living with the al-Qaida leader.


The compound was surrounded by 18 feet walls, topped with barbed wire. There were no lines coming in or going out of that compound which clear states that there was no internet or telephone connection to that particular compound. Residents in that compound burned their own garbage rather than putting it out for collection. This added to the agents suspicion about the heavily guarded and built compound in the midst of a Garrison town.


Normally, the U.S. shares its counterterrorism intelligence widely with trusted allies in Britain, Canada, Australia and elsewhere. And the U.S. normally does not carry out ground operations inside Pakistan without collaboration with Pakistani intelligence. But this mission was too important and too secretive.



On April 29, Obama approved an operation to kill bin Laden. It was a mission that required surgical accuracy, even more precision than could be delivered by the government's sophisticated Predator drones. To execute it, Obama tapped a small contingent of the Navy's elite SEAL Team Six and put them under the command of CIA Director Leon Panetta, whose analysts monitored the compound from afar.
Panetta was directly in charge of the team, a U.S. official said, and his conference room was transformed into a command center.

Details of exactly how the raid unfolded remain murky. But the al-Qaida courier, his brother and one of bin Laden's sons were killed. No Americans were injured. Senior administration officials will only say that bin Laden "resisted." And then the man behind the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil died from an American bullet to his head.

It was mid-afternoon in Virginia when Panetta and his team received word that bin Laden was dead. 

U.S.A woke up to the news that its most wanted man is DEAD!
