Helicopter Raid on Osama Unwittingly Tweeted Live by Abbottabad Resident

It started this way for Sohaib Athar :

Helicopter hovering above Abbottabad at 1AM (is a rare event).

Other key tweets:
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

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
Two helicpoters, one down, could actually be the training accident scenario they're saying it was
And now, a plane flying over Abbottabad...

Report from a taxi driver: The army has cordoned off the crash area and is conducting door-to-door search in the surrounding

Another rumor: two copters that followed the crashed one were foreign Cobras - and got away

Well, there were at least two copters last night, I heard one but a friend heard two, for 15-20 minutes.

Osama Bin Laden killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan.: ISI has confirmed it << Uh oh, there goes the neighborhood :-/

Uh oh, now I'm the guy who liveblogged the Osama raid without knowing it.
