Members of the U.S. Navy SEAL team that attacked Osama bin Laden’s Pakistani compound were wearing helmet-mounted digital cameras that recorded the mission, a U.S. military official told CNN Friday.

The official described the digital recording as hazy and fast-moving, and subject to poor lighting in the rooms. The source also said it is hard to get clear images from the footage.

“This is not movie-quality stuff,” the source said.

The revelation of the digital video was among a series of developments Friday in the wake of bin Laden’s death, including word that U.S. intelligence officers, along with Pakistanis, interviewed three of his widows and found them “hostile.”

    Even if before all this someone didn’t know about the head mounted cams… they were mentioned in the initial reports… that the President was watching a live feed as the events played out… that video has to come from somewhere.

    I’m sorry, but I did not need CNN to get that information out to me. This is what we would call common sense.
