CIA ‘live tweeted’ details of bin Laden raid on anniversary

To commemorate the fifth anniversary of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, the CIA is tweeting it as if it were happening today.

“To mark the 5th anniversary of the Usama Bin Laden operation in Abbottabad we will tweet the raid as if it were happening today,” the CIA tweeted at about 1 p.m. on Sunday.

The CIA tweeted that bin Laden’s death “marked significant victory in US-led campaign to disrupt, dismantle, & defeat al-Qa’ida.”

At 1:25 p.m. the organization had an update, and again at 1:51, detailing what happened on the day 5 years ago.
