CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Sohaib Athar, an IT consultant, was tweeting about some unusual helicopters over his neighborhood near Abbottabad’s Jalal Baba auditorium. He was joking about using his giant helicopter swatter to stop them. He even linked to a news site that proves his helicopter swatter works. The news reported a helicopter crashed near the Pakistan military academy of Kakool. He did not yet know that the helicopters were United States helicopters on a mission from a base out of Afghanistan to capture or kill Osama bin Laden in his own neighborhood — “hiding in plain sight”.

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

@smedica people are saying it was not a technical fault and it was shot down. I heard it CIRCLE 3-4 times above, sounded purposeful.

@tahirakram very likely – but it was too noisy to be a spy craft, or, a very poor spy craft it was.
