Report: Troops in bin Laden raid revealed

WASHINGTON — A Pentagon inspector general’s report says U.S. special operations forces who participated in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden were in uniform and wearing nametags during a CIA award ceremony attended by the writer of the film “Zero Dark Thirty.”

The report released Friday omits a number of revelations disclosed in a draft of the report that was made public more than a week ago. One omission: that then-CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed the name of the raid commander during his speech at the 2011 event.

The report was triggered by questions from a congressional lawmaker about whether U.S. officials leaked classified information to the filmmakers and whether they compromised military tactics and procedures.
