“At the Pentagon, top officers fumed at Brennan’s blow-by-blow description of how the SEALs operated; they believed that the former CIA officer had given away operational secrets never shared outside the tribe. (In fact, it appears no real secrets were divulged.) No one was angrier than Mullen himself, who still fumed about that news conference nearly a year later…
“By Wednesday of that week, Gates went to see Donilon, offering up a barbed assessment of how the White House had handled the aftermath of the raid.
“‘I have a new strategic communications approach to recommend,’ Gates said in his trademark droll tones, according to an account later provided by his colleagues.
“What was that, Donilon asked?
“‘Shut the f@*k up,’ the defense secretary said.”

They claim no secrets were revealed...oh yeah,but the division who killed OBL was revealed and a month or so later about 22 Navy SEALS were killed in a helicopter 'accident',as originally reported in the media. Hmmm...http://abcnews.go.com/International/helicopter-shot-25-navy-seals-dead-crash-afghanistan/story?id=14245387 and the Taliban took credit for the killing. After a very low profile investigation, the WH/Pentagon takes no blame for the incident. http://articles.latimes.com/2011/oct/13/nation/la-na-seals-crash-20111013

Yet,why were so many SEALS&others on one helicopter&why were they not using the Black Hawk helicopter [a faster model] that they normally would use??

It seems there are still a lot of questions that don't satisfy families of the fallen and many US citizens. Why were their lives compromised by only using one helicopter&not the usual Black Hawk?? Someone needs to be held accountable! #DDAY   #military  
An interesting detail in David Sanger’s excellent new book about President Obama’s foreign policy, Confront and Conceal: Obama’s Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power: After the raid, Pakis...

Great post.  Potentially shameful actions here.  Thanks for sharing.
 
+Greg Blaire Thanks for reading&sharing. I still think they covered their butts on this and instead claimed there were no tactical errors. I disagree, simply because they only used one helicopter for so many people&they were supposed to be on a rescue mission, which would have required them to have room for more passengers. [per LAT article Brig. Gen. Jeffrey N. Colt  who investigated:"called the decision to load the entire unit onto a single helicopter a "tactically sound" move to minimize aircraft exposure to ground fire."
