Bin Laden. It seems that those who desire to die as martyrs often get their wishes. Call it a self-fulfilling prophecy.
When the commandos first approached Bin Laden's house, a man in the guest house opened fire on them and was quickly dispatched. Once in the house, the commandos were instantly rushed by people in the house. Obama's son Khaled rushed downstairs to confront the Navy Seals and was shot dead. Weapons were seen throughout the house and the commandos didn't know who might be wearing a suicide vest. This explains why the Seals were fast on the trigger.
Osama Bin Laden was confronted on the third floor, within reach of his AK-47 rifle and 9 millimeter handgun, but did not go for them. Instead, he pushed his wife at the two commandos, who quickly ventilated him. They described Bin Laden as "scared and confused."
It seems that when the glorious moment of martyrdom arrived, Bin Laden had lost his enthusiasm. Too late.
