Do you remember what you were doing when you heard the news that the SEALs had removed America’s number one enemy? Dead is the worst prick of our time….Osama bin laden.
We heard about the raid and even a few docs that tried to explain what happened……and now we have a squabble by 2 SEAL team members over who fired the kill shot…….
Robert O’Neill says his bullet killed Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad in 2011, but others aren’t so sure. It’s a little confusing, but as Reuters and the New York Times report, there were apparently three SEALs involved: a point man and two other shooters. In a 2013 Esquire article, O’Neill, identified only as “the Shooter,” said the point man saw bin Laden first, but his shot missed; O’Neill then fired two shots into a still-standing bin Laden. Fellow SEALs, however, say “the point man” fired not just the first shot, but possibly the fatal one—certainly one that wounded bin Laden.
A former commander calls O’Neill’s two shots “insurance” rounds that were fired into an already-collapsed bin Laden. In his 2012 bookNo Easy Day, Matt Bissonnette said the point man shot bin Laden in the head, but he “was still twitching and convulsing” when Bissonnette and another SEAL “fired several rounds.” Will the point man ever come forward as O’Neill and Bissonnette have? It sounds unlikely. “You’re never going to hear from him,” a former SEAL Team Six member told ABC News last year. He “doesn’t think he did anything special. He simply pulled the trigger when he was supposed to. That’s why he’ll never go public.” A rep for the US Special Operations Command says it could be at least 20 years before the official report on the raid is declassified.
Like a couple of strutting peacocks.
My thoughts are….what a couple of greedy pricks. For one, the info on the raid is not declassified and that should put a silence on these two squabbling twats.
This is typical of the American mindset these days…..in search of fame and fortune….everybody wants to be the hero..
These two money hungry d/bags took an oath to serve this country…but it becomes a journey to fame and fortune….self-promotion becomes more important than the oath they took to serve……a man is only as good as his word……these two are worthless self-promoting douche bags……….
Their actions crap all over the concept of team……..for them it is not about the mission and the their oath….but rather personal gain….the modern day mantra of America.
There is NOTHING heroic about these two or anyone else that puts greed above their duty and their word…..it is shameful.
But these two will undoubtedly be rewarded for their betrayal……….BUT NOT FROM ME!
