Osama Bin Laden reportedly had 500 Euros in cash and two telephone numbers sewn into his clothing when he was killed. Pakistani intelligence officials also tell Al Arabiya that Bin Laden’s 12-year-old daughter told them that the Americans first captured her father then killed him in front of the family.

And yesterday the Obama Administration had to backtrack on what officials first said, that Bin Laden did not have a gun, and his 29-year-old wife was not used as a human shield by him but instead rushed the Navy SEALs and was shot in the leg. We speak with Washington Post national security reporter Greg Miller.
