By

Each took extreme measures to keep it quiet, often referring to it as "the trip to Atlantic City." Cooperation between Admiral William McRaven, head of the military's special ops troops, and CIA Director Leon Panetta also marks a historical shift in the relationship between the Pentagon and the CIA, suggesting the two will work more closely to combat terrorism.
