"Geronimo" I Ded

Interesting read.
CIA Chief Breaks Silence: U.S. Ruled Out Involving Pakistan in bin Laden Raid Early On | Swampland:
 "CIA officials turned a windowless 7th floor conference room at Langley into a command center for the mission, and Panetta watched the operation unfold from there. As he and his team waited for McRaven to report whether bin Laden was indeed in the compound, Panetta says the room was tense. “I kept asking Bill McRaven, ‘OK, what the hell’s this mean?’ and when McRaven finally said they had IDed “Geronimo,” the mission codename for bin Laden, “All the air we were holding came out.” When the helicopters left the compound 15 minutes later, the room broke into applause."

This is indeed great news! But were the ground forces 100% positive that bin laden was there? Of course, they will bring with them proof.
This is really a momentous occasion for the freedom fighters and a day of mourning for the terrorists.
