Story Of Bin Laden’s Death Changes

(Presidential spokesman Jay) Carney said on camera at a White House briefing on Tuesday that Bin Laden had not been armed. "On the first floor of Bin Laden's building, two al-Qaida couriers were killed, along with a woman who was killed in crossfire," he said. "Bin Laden and his family were found on the second and third floor of the building. There was concern that Bin Laden would oppose the capture operation – operation rather, and, indeed, he did resist. In the room with Bin Laden, a woman – Bin Laden's – a woman, rather, Bin Laden's wife, rushed the US assaulter and was shot in the leg but not killed. Bin Laden was then shot and killed. He was not armed"/Robert Booth, Guardian. More here.

Question: Does it bother you that Osama bin Laden was unarmed when he was shot to death?
