Night-Vision Lenses Aided Osama Kill Team ?

A lot has been talked about the sophisticated weapons used by the US forces, especially the SEAL Team 6 that was part of Operation Geronimo in Abbottabad to kill former al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden.

Rumours have it that one of the ultra-modern technologies that the team used to kill Laden was something as taken straight from a sci-fi thriller – night-vision contact lenses.

How Bin Laden Used Technology To Evade Capture

How did the most-wanted Al-Qaeda leader escape for over nine years? It may not be as complicated as one might think. United States officials gathered almost one hundred USB memory drives from Osama Bin Laden’s hideout on the day of the capture. Bin Laden would use a thumb drive whenever he needed to exchange an e-mail with the outside world.

He would write the e-mail message on his computer, unhooked to any internet connection, transfer the e-mail to a USB drive, and send the USB drive along with the courier to a distant Internet Cafe to be sent or distributed.
