Makes perfect sense. I bet Osama's "suicide jacket" was smelling a bit rank after almost ten years. Or maybe he's got a different one for each day of the week.<quoted text>They gave bin Laden one chance to surrender. He didn't. The special ops guys didn't know if he was wearing a suicide jacket or had a button to push to blow up the place.
Heck, this is Pakistan we're talking about. There was probably a special dry-cleaning service for "suicide jackets."
