I read that the SEALs used specialized Black Hawk helicopters, and yeah, they blew up the one that crashed. Can't be letting others get that super-ultra-awesome helicopter technology!

Some seem to be rather reluctant to believe that the chopper went down to mechanical failure - yes, it was a pretty critical situation, and perhaps unlikely for something like that to occur, but shit does happen and the explanation given seems believable.

While much about the daring raid that killed Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan remains secret, one detail that has slipped out is the commando team included a bomb-sniffing dog.

The heroic canine was strapped to a member of the SEAL team as he lowered himself and the dog to the ground from a hovering helicopter near the compound, according to The Sun.

Heavily armoured hounds — equipped with infrared night-sight cameras — have been used in the past by the top-secret unit.

The war dogs wear ballistic body armour that is said to withstand damage from single and double-edged knives, as well as protective gear which shields them from shrapnel and gunfire.

GlobalAnimal.org speculates that the breed of dog in this mission was most likely a German Shepherd.

More likely, the dog on the bin Laden operation would have been a smaller German Shepherd with a highly specific mission. Some dogs are trained to silently locate booby traps and concealed enemies such as snipers. The dog’s keen senses of smell and hearing would make him or her far more effective at detecting these dangers than humans. The best scout dogs are described as having a disposition between docile tracking dogs and aggressive attack dogs.

I am commander Shepherd, and this is my favourite bunker in Pakistan? :D

Well, at least the US forces know the real use of a dog, unlike those people who make undersized dogs wear ridiculous t-shirts :xD:

The latest news (and my uncle in the military confirmed this) is that those blackhawks utilize sound-cancelling technology on a massive scale, similar to that of sound-cancelling headphones, to make them silent.

Gotta love technology. |8

As long as the dark foundation of our nature, grim in its all-encompassing egoism, mad in its drive to make that egoism into reality, to devour everything and to define everything by itself, as long as that foundation is visible, as long as this truly original sin exists within us, we have no business here and there is no logical answer to our existence.
Imagine a group of people who are all blind, deaf and slightly demented and suddenly someone in the crowd asks, "What are we to do?"... The only possible answer is, "Look for a cure". Until you are cured, there is nothing you can do.
And since you don't believe you are sick, there can be no cure.
