If you happened to be following @ReallyVirtual you would have gotten live updates of the SEALs taking out Osama...
"Here are the first of Athar’s tweets, in chronological order: (you can see them all by following him on Twitter)
Helicopter hovering above Abbottabad at 1AM (is a rare event).
Go away helicopter – before I take out my giant swatter :-/
A huge window shaking bang here in Abbottabad Cantt. I hope its not the start of something nasty :-S
@m0hcin all silent after the blast, but a friend heard it 6 km away too… the helicopter is gone too.
@m0hcin http://bit.ly/ljB6p6 seems like my giant swatter worked !
@m0hcin the few people online at this time of the night are saying one of the copters was not Pakistani…
han3yy Hania Ahmed by ReallyVirtual OMG :S Bomb Blasts in Abbottabad.. I hope everyone is fine :(
@raihak I try, man, I try (in reply to entreaty to “be safe!”)
@raihak Funny, moving to Abbottabad was part of the ‘being safe’ strategy
Since taliban (probably) don’t have helicpoters, and since they’re saying it was not “ours”, so must be a complicated situation#abbottabad
@raihak yep, the mad power cuts have reached abbottabad – 14 hours daily – luckily I have a generator AND a UPS at the coffee shop
@tahirakram yea. *hides his giant swatter*
@kashaziz technically, it is unidentified until identified, and it is a flying object, so year, why the hell not, we have seen weirder stuff
@tahirakram they’re not saying anything
The abbottabad helicopter/UFO was shot down near the Bilal Town area, and there’s report of a flash. People saying it could be a drone.
@wqs figures, if they have the right to shoot planes flying over the president house, the must have the same instructions for PMA
@smedica people are saying it was not a technical fault and it was shot down. I heard it CIRCLE 3-4 times above, sounded purposeful.
@tahirakram very likely – but it was too noisy to be a spy craft, or, a very poor spy craft it was.
@smedica It must have been more, I started noticing the helicpoter when the noise got irritating – which part of Abbottabd are you in?
@smedica I live near Jalal Baba Auditorium
@smedica ’safer’ is a relative term that has lost its meaning in Pakistan
Here’s the location of the Abbottabad crash according to some people >>> http://on.fb.me/khjf34
Two helicpoters, one down, could actually be the training accident scenario they’re saying it was >> http://bit.ly/ioGE6O
and now I feel I must apologize to the pilot about the swatter tweets :-/
And now, a plane flying over Abbottabad…
@raihak The day there is uninterrupted electricity in Lahore for a whole month, I will start packing my bags, until then, Abbottabad is home
1 dead and 1 injured in Abbottabad for heli crashed
Interesting rumors in the otherwise uneventful Abbottabad air today
naqvi rt by ReallyVirtual I think the helicopter crash in Abbottabad, Pakistan and the President Obama breaking news address are connected.
Report from a taxi driver: The army has cordoned off the crash area and is conducting door-to-door search in the surrounding
@kursed What really happened doesn’t matter if there is an official story behind it that 99.999% of the world would believe
@kursed Another rumor: two copters that followed the crashed one were foreign Cobras – and got away
@ahmedbilal @kursed Sadly. We should start learning how to spread believable stories and recreate a reality that suits us.
@kursed True, but stranger things have happened. I just hope they don’t find my giant helicopter swatter. Must hide it :-/
Report from a sweeper: A family also died in the crash, and one of the helicopter riders got away and is now being searched for.
@kursed Well, there were at least two copters last night, I heard one but a friend heard two, for 15-20 minutes.
@kursed I think I should take out my big blower to blow the fog of war away and see the clearer picture.
I guess Abbottabad is going to get as crowded as the Lahore that I left behind for some peace and quiet. *sigh*
RT @ISuckBigTime: Osama Bin Laden killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan.: ISI has confirmed it << Uh oh, there goes the
Wondering what would be the right music to play in the coffee shop today…"
