Navy SEAL Who Shot And Killed Bin Laden Speaks Out

The British newspaper the Daily Mail offers a report on the interview of the U.S. Navy SEAL who shot and killed Public Enemy Number 1, Osama bin Laden. 

The Navy SEAL who claims he shot and killed Osama bin Laden in the famous raid which captured America's most wanted terrorist has spoken for the first time about the moment he shot bin Laden three times in the head and watched him take his last breath. 

The Team Sox member - who is referred to as 'The Shooter' for the safety of his family - described in unforgettable detail the days leading up to the kill, the moment he shot bin Laden three times and the fallout from the raid.

Once they given their mission, the woman at the CIA - made famous by Jessica Chastain's portrayal in Zero Dark Thirty - told the team bin Laden was '100 per cent on the third floor' of his compound in Abbottabad in Pakistan. 

In an interview to appear in the March edition of Esquire magazine, The Shooter describes for the first time in unforgettable detail the tense and life-changing two minutes that changed the course of history. 

"'I can't tell you 100 per cent, but he was standing and moving. He was holding (his wife Amal) in front of him. Maybe as a shield, I don't know. For me, it was snapshot of a target ID, definitely him.

"This was repetition and muscle memory. That's him, boom, done."
