Navy SEAL who killed Bin Laden breaks silence

After nearly a decade of searching for Osama bin Laden, most Americans will never forget the day the president said these words. osamabinladen

Since bin Laden’s death on May 2 2011, the story of Navy SEALS hunting bin Laden down and killing him in Pakistan has been chronicled in a critically acclaimed movie, a best-selling book and countless news stories.

But now a member of the SEAL team says the story is all wrong. He remains anonymous and is called “the shooter” in an Esquire magazine article.

Another SEAL mark Owen, the author of “no easy day” says bin laden was shot by the point man in the raid.

Owen claims when SEALs entered bin Laden’s room he was on the ground already dead from a shot to the side of the head.

“The shooter” tells a much different version. He tells Esquire the point man missed a shot from the second floor and the team then went upstairs. That’s when the shooter claims the point man grabbed two women and in this excerpt the shooter claims he came face to face with their target.

The author of the article, who spoke with the anonymous seal, says he provided this additional detail.

There is no official way to determine who is telling the truth.

But CNN sources say “the shooter’s” story is more credible.

    Seals are supposed to be among our best military men. Trained in every aspect of physical, mental, and emotional ability to work as teams for successful combat missions. This bickering about who pulled the trigger, and who is profiting is not a fitting way for the world to see America's elite soldiers. Why aren't all these men properly debriefed and sharing in some reward money, as I understood there was a large reward for bin Ladin. If any of these guys are not taken care of with pensions and healthcare, it is a disgrace. On the flip side if any of them are glory grabbers for profit, then they are a disgrace. Coming out in public places a target on themselves and all their comrades. Lying about the details of the Bin Ladin kill is reprehensible as well. But I can imagine, having seen two films about the raid, that there could be confusion as everything happened in the dark, in a very unstable environment, and quickly.

    JUST PRPVES TO SHOW THAT HALF OF THE THINGS THE MEIDA TELLS US, BE A LIE. WE WILL NEVER KNOW THE TRUTH, OR EVEN KNOW IF BIN LADEN EXSISTS.

      You're an idiot. While I agree that the media often gets things wrong- by insinuating that Bin Laden may never have existed is disrespectful to the men & women fighting this war on terror and to those Navy Seals who took him out.

    There is no war on terrorism you idiots. It's all trumped up. American ego out-of-control in essence. A few vagabonds running around in robes and Nissan pick up trucks with a few junk Russian rocket launchers. And in the process we spend over $2T. How stupid and arrogant can you be?

    This whole SEAL thing is an absolute sham. John Wayne wannabe's on steroids. Daaaaaaaaaaaa
