Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill, who fired the shots that killed Osama Bin Laden, has written a book detailing what happened on the night of that historic raid. Warning for the squeamish: the link describes the kill shot in graphic detail. The full story also provides further proof, if any were needed, of the unbelievable courage, selflessness, humility and devotion to country and mission of America’s finest.
One detail that I believe should be shouted from the rooftops: according to O’Neill, when Bin Laden was killed, he was standing behind a woman, presumably one of his wives, with his hands on her shoulders. It didn’t help: a Navy SEAL knows how to aim a gun precisely. But just in case you missed the important part, let me repeat and emphasize it: the great “Lion of the Desert,” the “Jihadist Sheik,” Osama Bin Laden, died while trying to shield himself by cowering behind a woman.
