Helicopter used in raid

There seems to be some confusion about the type of helicopter used in the raid on Bin Laden's hideout. First reports mentioned two CH-47 Chinook. H-60 variants have also been mentioned.

Question to our aircraft identification experts: Looking at the photos of the wreckage at the compound that are floating around the net, could this be a Sikorsky S-92A? I observed N465VL performing what I thought at the time to be odd nightly maneuvers near Rachel April 15 thru 18.

Thanks for your input.
