If you haven't read a good account of this operation, by all means do so. This is the kind of thing that, if it happened during an RPG, would have the GM wondering what she did wrong. I mean, no combat at all? Not even dramatic shots at the 'copter as it's taking off? No fights by the open helicopter doors, with people clinging to the landing rails or hostages held at gunpoint?
Nope (thank goodness). They got this one 100% right, it seems.
