Other Surprises About the Bin Laden Raid Revealed in the Book “No Easy Day”

BIN THERE, DONE THAT DEPT.

No Easy Day — the new book about the mission to kill Osama Bin Laden, written by one of the Navy SEALs who was there — is already creating controversy. The author’s account of Bin Laden’s death states that the terrorist leader wasn’t shot by the SEAL team, but shot himself, then was finished off by the soldiers.  We don’t quite get what the fuss is about — either way, the story has a happy ending! But this discrepancy does open the door to a bunch of other bombshell revelations!

Al-Qaeda's Ayman al-Zawahri Starring in "Drone Alone"

TURBAN LEGEND DEPT.

President Obama’s relentless drone attacks on top Al-Qaeda members have made a real impact, systematically wiping out the top echelon of the terrorist network. Most recently, a missile took out the group’s “number two” man, Abu Yahya al-Libi.

The Disturbing Similarities Between New Al-Qaeda Leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri and New Today Host Ann Curry

Recently Ayman Al-Zawahiri took over for Osama Bin Laden and not-so-coincidently Ann Curry took over for Meredith Vieira. That got us to thinking…

Both work for large, poorly-run organizations.

Both are seen as bland, second-rate replacements for their popular predecessors.

Both frequently appear on camera droning on and on about nothing.

One works with Al Qaeda, the other with Al Roker.
