On Bin Laden's Head:
Russert: Mr. Black gave you specific instructions on what he wanted you to bring home.
Mr. Schroen: That's true. He did ask that once we got bin Laden and killed him, that we send his head back in a cardboard box on dry ice so that he could take it down and show the president.
Russert: Where would you find the dry ice in Afghanistan?
Mr. Schroen: That's what I mentioned to him. I said, "Cofer, I think that I can come up with pikes to put the heads of the lieutenants on," which is the second part of what he wanted done. "Dry ice, we'll have to improvise." (more)
