The Central Intelligence Agency marked the 5th anniversary of the operation that killed Osama bin Laden by tweeting details of the U.S. raid as if it were happening in real time on Sunday.    U.S. special forces  killed the al-Qaida leader at a compound in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad, ending what had been a nearly decade-long search for the man whose organization killed nearly 3,000 people on September 11, 2001.
