Bin Laden: CIA panned for live-tweet­ing ‘news’

Fiji Sun - - World News -

The US Cen­tral In­tel­li­gence Agency (CIA) has been crit­i­cised on­line for live-tweet­ing the killing of Osama Bin Laden as it hap­pened five years ago. It has shared de­tails of the mis­sion and in­tel­li­gence that led to Amer­ica’s most wanted man be­ing found.

But re­ac­tion has been largely neg­a­tive, with one Twit­ter user call­ing the move “grotesque and em­bar­rass­ing”. Oth­ers posted memes and gifs of peo­ple rolling their eyes and putting their heads in their hands. The CIA’s other tweets mostly con­cern his­tor­i­cal trivia and arte­facts.

The late Osama Bin Laden.
