One year after SEAL Team 6 raided it, Osama bin Laden’s com­pound in Ab­bot­tabad, Pakistan, has been razed. We take a look at the re­mains of bin Laden’s com­pound and the city that sheltered him. The same spot that once held the most wanted man of the last dec­ade, now gets trampled on by chil­dren, play­ing with the debris as though it were any oth­er open lot. What a dif­fer­ence two years can make.
