    In a rare on-the-record denial, U.S. Special Operations Command has come forward to dispute the story told in a controversial new book exploring how al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden met his end at the hands of U.S. Navy SEALS.

    “It’s just not true,” said Col. Tim Nye, U.S. Special Operations Command spokesman of the account told in Chuck Pfarrer’s new book “SEAL Target Geronimo.”

    “It’s not how it happened.”

    Pfarrer, a former Navy SEAL himself, says the Obama administration has a political interest in sticking to its guns, and that he has staked his career on the facts in his book.

    “I think it’s very important that the administration itself push back on this. They have never really come out with a complete story,” said Pfarrer, in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller. “The story they did come out with was a series of factoids: a 45-minute firefight, the deliberate wounding of a woman, a ground–up assault, trying to explain how a helicopter landed on the wrong side of a 20-foot wall and a 10-foot steel gate.”

    Pfarrer,whose tale rejects each of those claims,says that the Administration's story told most comprehensively by The New Yorker was born of haphazard political expedience.

    This is no surprise to me. I said they were lying right from the very beginning. I don't believe anything they've claimed regarding the Bin Laden assassination.

    My favorite part was when they gathered in that room to watch what they said was a real time video of the raid but it turned out that the video was turned of for that and it was a staged photo.

    Plus they changed their story numerous times before they supposedly threw Bin Ladins' body in the ocean (in accordance with Muslim practice of course :rolleyes:) and then didn't show us pics of it.

    Except for all that I'm sure the gov't is telling us the whole truth.

    I'll be honest,i don't believe anything they've told us about the Bin Laden assassination. I think it's all just a concocted fairy tale. They're gonna use this fairy tale for the next Election. That's what it's really all about in the end.

    It is a classic illustration though of the MSM continued covering Obama's rear because when you read MOST stories about Pfarrer the author it is very negative about the book AND Pfarrer!

    No, I'm sure that Bin Laden is dead by US hands, but I'm assuming they are trying to keep stuff that is diplomatically sensitive out of the public eye on this.
