Osama Surveillance: The effort was so extensive and costly that the CIA went to Congress in December to secure authority to reallocate tens of millions of dollars within assorted agency budgets to fund it, U.S. officials said


CIA surveillance team in the rented house near Bin Laden's hide-out used cameras with telephoto lenses and infrared imaging equipment to study the compound, and they used sensitive eavesdropping equipment to try to pick up voices from inside the house and to intercept cellphone calls. A satellite used radar to search for possible escape tunnels.

CIA maintained a safe house in Abbottabad for a team of spies who conducted extensive surveillance over a period of months on the compound where Osama Bin Laden was killed.
CIA facility was used as a base of operations, one that relied on Pakistani informants and other sources to help assemble a "pattern of life" portrait of the occupants and daily activities at the compound.
