The Killing Of Osama/ Link to Bob Woodward"s Account in Washington Post

Bob Woodward's account of the killing of Osama bin Laden provides mostly what's already been reported, however it does provide some interesting and at times even humourus antidotes such as this:
When bin Laden’s corpse was laid out, one of the Navy SEALs was asked to stretch out next to it to compare heights. The SEAL was 6 feet tall. The body was several inches taller.
After the information was relayed to Obama, he turned to his advisers and said: “We donated a $60 million helicopter to this operation. Could we not afford to buy a tape measure?”
Woodward's article does lay it all out for you, making it easier to understand in a linear, story type way.  In my opinion it's certainly worth reading.  I've provided a link to the article here:
