See How Osama Bin Laden was Killed by American CIA - 5th Anniversary

The CIA marked the fifth anniversary of the daring raid that killed Osama bin Laden by revealing some little-known details about the operation — in real-time on Twitter.
Over a series of tweets posted to its verified Twitter feed Sunday, the agency gave its 1.3 million Twitter followers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into how the mission unfolded.
The timing of the posts more or less matched the CIA's official timeline of the assault on the al-Qaida leader's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
"To mark the 5th anniversary," the CIA explained, "we will tweet the raid as if it were happening today."

Hillary Clinton, who was then secretary of state, says she believes the Pakistanis knew bin Laden was hiding in their country, but that the United States was unable to prove the suspicion.

"There was never any evidence that we could uncover that led directly to the top of the Pakistani military and intelligence service," Clinton told CNN in a primetime special on the raid set to air Monday. "I believe Pakistanis knew. I believe Pakistanis either in service or retired or both knew."

Meanwhile, the network also tracked down Sohaib Athar, the Pakistani software engineer who unwittingly broke the news that the raid on the bin Laden compound was under way.
