Ancillary OBL stories

Lots of odd little tidbits coming out.  One of my favorites is the guy in Washington state who had pledged not to shave his beard until OBL was captured or killed - it was down to his waist when he shaved it off on Sunday night!

Another weird story is the $27 million dollar reward that the State Department had offered.  Since the info about the courier came from Guantanamo prisoners, it's not likely that anyone will get that money!

But probably the strangest is this one; this report is from Olbermann's blog (FOK):

Bin Laden Death Was Live-Tweeted

Sohaib Athar of Abbottabad, Pakistan (@ReallyVirtual) around 4 PM Eastern time:
Helicopter hovering above Abbottabad at 1AM (is a rare event).

Closer to 5 PM Eastern:

A huge window shaking bang here in Abbottabad Cantt. I hope its not the start of something nasty :-S

Details begin to come in to Mr. Athar:

the few people online at this time of the night are saying one of the copters was not Pakistani…

Since taliban (probably) don’t have helicpoters, and since they’re saying it was not “ours”, so must be a complicated situation #abbottabad
Mr. Athar’s growing awareness:

Two helicpoters, one down, could actually be the training accident scenario they’re saying it was

The next one, about 10 PM Eastern:

Interesting rumors in the otherwise uneventful Abbottabad air today
