Bin Laden raid through SEAL's eyes, plus Bay area 9/11 events

We now have a first-hand account of how the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks was killed.

On CBS News' 60 Minutes, Scott Pelley interviewed for the first time a former member of SEAL Team Six. He's written a book about the raid under the pseudonym Mark Owen.

Owen was on the helicopter that crashed and he took the pictures of Osama bin Laden's body that the world has never seen.
