In the sleepy suburban town of Abbottabad,
Pakistan on Sunday night, JSOC rappelled
in on helicopters and raided Usama bin
Laden’s home, killing him and a few others
in a bold surgical strike that has
dominated the news. TopFive got hold of
the audio from a SEAL buddy, and we’re
going to fill you in on some details.

The Top 9 Things Overheard at the
Abbottabad Safe House Sunday Night

9> “Good evening, Mr. bin Laden. We’re SEAL Team Six, your last

8> “Hey, Abbottabad! Who’s gone first?”

7> “Good news: 72 virgins are waiting for you. Bad news: They’re
all sharks.”

6> “Ha, joke’s on you, infidel. Getting shot in the head by a
SEAL was on my bucket list.”

5> “My trusted courier, next time I say, ‘Let’s go someplace
like Bolivia’, let’s go someplace like Bolivia.”

4> “I thought feminine shields provided all-day protection?”

3> “We have the DNA sample. Repeat: We have the DNA sample. Also
a blood sample. Also a jaw sample, tooth samples, and several
skull bone samples, plus a pretty-good-sized brain sample.”

2> “Why did we waste all that time looking in Costellobad?”

and the Number 1 Thing Overheard at the Abbottabad Safe House Sunday Night…
1> “But first, a little roo-roo.”
