The changing Bin Laden death story

White House press secretary Jay Carney just gave a press conference in which he insisted that Bin Laden was resisting capture. But he said explicitly that Bin Laden was not armed. He could not explain what kind of "resistance" he was offering. He did say a wife of Bin Laden's was in the room and rushed the soldiers. She was shot in the leg.

It's hard to think based on this account that there was any serious attempt to capture the terrorist leader. John Brennan's statements at his press conference on Monday apparently contained claims that somebody just made up, e.g., the propaganda point of Bin Laden using one of his wives as a shield.

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
