The Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden has been revealed to be Rob O’Neill. O’Neil is the member of the SEAL Team Six who shot bin Laden three times in the head to kill him on May 2, 2011 in Abbottobad, Pakistan. O’Neill, 38, will go on Fox News this weekend and reveal himself and tell his story. In 2011, O’Neil was interviewed by Esquire and referred to only as “The Shooter.” In the article, he complained of receiving no pension, getting no health care from the government, and fearing for his life. In 2011, CNN reported that O’Neill was “thrown off” the core of SEAL Team 6 for “bragging about his role in the raid in bars.”
Matt Bissonnette, O’Neill’s comrade on SEAL Team Six, spoke about the criticism he received for coming forward with his story. Bissonnette wrote about the attack that killed bin Laden in No Easy Day and was subsequently rebuked by the Navy for sharing details. He is facing potential criminal prosecution for writing the book. Bissonnnette also said his former commanding officer and other colleagues have not yet forgiven him. “They don’t call it SEAL Team 6-Year-Old for nothing,” he said.
