BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: The fallout continues from the killing of Osama bin Laden . At the Pentagon today the top two men in charge, the defense secretary and the head of the Joint Chiefs , sat down to talk to reporters. Both men clearly frustrated with how much talk there's already been about the raid, and both men are convinced that somebody knew bin Laden was in that secret compound where Navy SEALs eventually found him and shot him.
Mr. ROBERT GATES (Secretary of Defense): It's my supposition, I think it's a supposition shared by a number in this government, that somebody had to know. But we have no idea who and we have no proof or no evidence.
WILLIAMS: And alongside there Secretary Gates at the news conference was Admiral Mike Mullen , chairman of the Joint Chiefs , who expressed his own frustration at the number of people, including retired military, who've been talking publicly about the details of this raid on bin Laden 's compound. He said they need to stop.
