Bin Laden used wife as human shield, Brennan says 

Osama bin Laden used his wife as a human shield during the raid on his compound, John Brennan, chief counterterrorism adviser to President Barack Obama, said at a Monday press briefing.

Brennan commented that bin Laden's use of the human shield, on top of the fact that he was living in a $1 million compound far away from the front of the war, poked a huge hole in the traditional Al Qaeda narrative of bin Laden.
