SEAL who shot 
Sheikh Osama Bin Laden speaks out
By Dylan Stableford, Yahoo! News | The Lookout

The U.S. Navy SEAL who shot and killed Osama bin Laden is speaking out for the first time since the May 1, 2011, raid on the al-Qaida leader's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

In an interview with Esquire, the former SEAL—identified as "The Shooter" due to what the magazine described as "safety" reasons—said he's been largely abandoned by the U.S. government since leaving the military last fall.

He told Esquire he decided to speak out to both correct the record of the bin Laden mission and to put a spotlight on how some of the U.S. military's highly trained and accomplished soldiers are treated by the government once they return to civilian life.

Despite killing the world's most-wanted terrorist, he said, he was not given a pension, health care or protection for himself or his family.

"[SEAL command] told me they could get me a job driving a beer truck in Milwaukee," he told Esquire.

Plus, he said, "my health care for me and my family stopped. I asked if there was some transition from my Tricare to Blue Cross Blue Shield. They said no. You're out of the service, your coverage is over. Thanks for your 16 years. Go f--- yourself."

The problem seems to be that "The Shooter" left the military well before the 20-year requirement for retirement benefits.

According to the magazine, the government provides 180 days of transitional health care benefits, but the Shooter was ineligible because he did not agree to remain on active duty in a support role or become a "reservist." Instead, the magazine noted, he will "have to wait at least eight months to have his disability claims adjudicated."

The SEAL also gave his account of the historic raid, including the moment he pulled the trigger and shot bin Laden.

“In that second, I shot him, two times in the forehead," he told Esquire. "Bap! Bap! The second time as he’s going down. He crumpled onto the floor in front of his bed. He was dead. I watched him take his last breaths. And I remember as I watched him breathe out the last part of air, I thought: Is this the best thing I've ever done, or the worst thing I've ever done?

"I'm not religious," he added. "But I always felt I was put on the earth to do something specific. After that mission, I knew what it was."

He also recalled watching CNN's coverage of the first anniversary of bin Laden's death.

"They were saying, 'So now we're taking viewer e-mails. Do you remember where you were when you found out Osama bin Laden was dead?' And I was thinking: Of course I remember. I was in his bedroom looking down at his body."

In September 2012, fellow former SEAL Team 6 member Matt Bissonnette published a controversial book, "No Easy Day," under a pen name about the raid, drawing the ire of both his fellow SEALs and the Pentagon.

A spokeswoman for Esquire told Yahoo News that the magazine did not pay the SEAL for the interview.

The Shooter Speaks
A Q&A with the Man Who Killed Bin Laden
By Phil Bronstein at 7:00PM


One of many interviews Phil Bronstein of the Center for Investigative Reporting conducted with the Man Who Killed Osama bin Laden.
______________________________________________________________

Did you think your life would change when this happened ?

Yeah. I still didn't know if it would be good or bad. I didn't know which way it would go.

The good was having done something great for my country, for the guys, for the people in New York. It was closure.

And the bad ?

He was their prophet. Now we killed him, and I have to worry about this forever. Al Qaeda, especially these days, is 99 percent talk. But that 1 percent of the time they do shit. It's bad. They're capable of horrific things.

We started de-briefing and that's when they started bringing up the idea of the Witness Protection Program. And they still are.

They told me they could get me a job driving a beer truck in Milwaukee. like any whistleblower in the Mafia. We'd lose everything.

Imagine tomorrow that there's a story somewhere in the national press. Here are the guys who were on the mission. You hear their real names. You're on all the jihadi websites. What do you think is going to happen ?

The command would try to round up the families and get them somewhere safe.

But that's it. That's totally reactive. If someone attacks a family, you're not going to have time to assemble a group to go get them. Who would they send anyway?

I told my ex-wife to put the kids in the tub and grab the shotgun. Put it against the wall, so it doesn't hurt your shoulder, and when they get to the door, shoot at the door, shit like that, until I can reinforce the door. Basically she needs to barricade herself in until the cops arrive. And even if the cops arrive and the threats are serious. They're not going to be a match for these guys, either, if they came at my family with what they are capable of.

She has a packed suitcase with all the things the family needs for four days, and it just sits there. My kids have a fucking bolt bag — that's what I call it — it's packed. And if something comes out, I call her, [tell her to] get in the fucking car, grab the suitcases, and just go.

And what about you? What's the plan for you ?

I don't really have a plan. As arrogant as it sounds, I'm not afraid of these fucking guys.

Like you're ready for anything. "Everything and anything" is the quote for the SEALS, right ?

Right.

But you're not ready for this, right ?

I don't have the resources.

If you had the resources, what would you do ?

I would build a high-security house, with a high security fence. Change their names, move them somewhere, and watch my route when I go see them.

But then you're going to have paparazzi and all that shit.

Yeah.

You ever dealt with that ?

No. I don't know how to deal with that.

The big mission changed a lot of attitudes, around the command. A certain number of guys got picked. But because the other guys didn't get picked, there's a lot of jealousy. There were suspicions about whether anyone was selling out.

I deployed again to Afghanistan to show I wasn't a douchebag, that I'm still part of this team and believe in what we're doing.

My feeling now has changed, which is part of the reason I got out. A lot of the missions they're going on are going to be a waste of really good lives.

When I started separating from the life in March — after my deployment — it was the jump trip, the training jumps. The more I got away from it, I started to realize that even jumping is like, Shit, that's kind of dangerous. You put a bundle on, and you jump out of a plane with a 500-pound barrel attached to you. I don't have a desire to do that anymore. And then I started thinking about the combat, and, Holy shit, we were just sticking it out there for years. This was a dangerous job. And the further I got away, [I thought] Holy shit, these guys are crazy.

I was burned out. I'm done. I left SEALS on [a] Friday. They're starting to see guys leave, and we're going to see more of it.

The government doesn't want us talking about anything. So, basically, I leave the Navy and I can't say anything. Here I am without a degree and sixteen years of doing nothing.

I'm sorry for the last sixteen years I've been doing this, and I didn't have a chance to read the same book everyone else is reading to get a fucking degree. But that's the fear of not being marketable.

So you want to have a degree, what else ?

Health care is a need. I still have the same bills I had in the Navy. I need to find employment.

I'd like to do something that has nothing to do with my past. I don't want to carry a gun. I don't have a need for excitement anymore. Honestly.

In five years what I'd like to do is have a platform for guys who are in the same position as me right now. To be able to come out and get work in a field they want, and then I'd like to have a foundation for the families as well. Families of guys from SEAL Team 6 that have died.

And you're just going to say you're a SEAL — that's the plan?

The term "SEAL Team 6" is going to be declassified, and I'm thinking it technically already is because of the people saying it so much.

It's like you've got talented, dedicated, brave guys. I mean, there is nothing classified about that. What do you think they're concerned about? Giving the enemy information? It's all out there.
Yeah, I don't understand. The secrecy is kind of dead. The Pakistanis got to comb that house after we were there. They could tell everything that happened.

What do your kids know — did you talk to them about this mission ?

They know I shoot bad guys. When I got back, I was sitting on the couch one day, and all the news is covering this. My kid says his name out loud, and I said: "You need to not say that name ever again, anywhere to anybody. It's a bad name. It's a curse name. So we were sitting there again, and his face came up, and my kid said, so proud, "Dad, look, it's Poopyface."

A year after Bin Laden's death, I had the kids up at a water park. We were getting changed to go play in the water. I was watching CNN, and they were saying, "So now we're taking viewer emails. Do you remember where you were when you found out Osama bin Laden was dead?" And I was thinking, "Of course, I remember exactly where I was. I was in his bedroom, looking down at his body."

The Man Who Killed Osama bin Laden... Is Screwed

For the first time, the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden tells his story — speaking not just about the raid and the three shots that changed history, but about the personal aftermath for himself and his family. And the startling failure of the United States government to help its most experienced and skilled warriors carry on with their lives.

The man who shot and killed Osama bin Laden sat in a wicker chair in my backyard, wondering how he was going to feed his wife and kids or pay for their medical care.

It was a mild spring day, April 2012, and our small group, including a few of his friends and family, was shielded from the sun by the patchwork shadows of maple trees. But the Shooter was ...

In Islam, no civilian killing even during war and every muslim knows this.

Some Islam follower become terrorist because they think there is no other way to stop you from being continously destroy their muslim brothers' life but for you, you became superb terrorist just to fulfill your own desire and the interest of some one behind the screen.

Muslim will not accept killing civilian, raping woman and children abusing even during war but if some of them did it, It came from their own judgment due to you cruelty to Islam followers.
