    Bin Laden Shooter Reportedly Speaks: 'That's Him, Boom, Done'

    The Navy SEAL who says he pulled the trigger on Osama bin Laden is speaking out for the first time to describe his key role in the harrowing raid, and to say he feels abandoned by the military he served for so long now that he's left the service, according to a new report.
    In an interview conducted by Phil Bronstein of the Center for Investigative Reporting and published online today by Esquire magazine, the SEAL Team Six member, referred to only as "the Shooter," gives the first eyewitness account in which the al Qaeda leader is described as a direct threat right up until the moment he was killed in early May 2011 in his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
    "I'm just looking at him from right here," the SEAL said, moving his hand about 10 inches from his face, according to Esquire. "He's got a gun on the shelf right there, the short AK he's famous for. And he's moving forward... He's got a gun within reach. He's a threat. I need to get a head shot so he won't have a chance to clack himself off [blow himself up]."

    "In that second, I shot him, two times in the forehead. Bap! Bap! The second time as he's going down. He crumpled onto the floor in front of his bed and I hit him again, Bap! same place... He was dead. Not moving. His tongue was out. I watched him take his last breaths, just a reflex breath," the Shooter said.

    I'd buy that man a beer anytime. Sucks that he is going to have a hard time finding a new job, though. Hope it works out for him...

    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    That Esquire interview with this guy was riveting. I hope you all take the time to read it. It's long but totally worth the time.

    Definitely. They were all pretty sure they werent going to be coming back alive. The guy who shot UBL said he figured he had a 90% chance of dying until they saw the helicopter. Upon seeing that thing, one of them remarked "I didnt think we were going to be taken in on a ****ing Decepticon" . I loved the article. Very real and very non-PC. Funny and serious at the same time. Definitely not a powder-puff piece.

    I'd pay good money to see this footage, I'd just want a one time private screening to see this dumb**** take his last breath as his brain exited the back of his head and hit the wall behind him, of course I'd wait to be 2,978 as I'd let the families of the 2,977 victims go ahead of me.

    I'm going to grab an Esquire just to read this writeup.
