The SEAL Team 6 operator, Robert O’Neill who took down Osama Bin Laden back in 2011 has come out with a new book. In this book, he retells the details of the raid and unleashes the truth as to why the photos of the terror leader’s body were never released to the public.
The book is called “The Operator”, and it gives a detailed look into former Navy chief’s career spanning 400 missions. His then role with the elite SEAL team’s raid on Bin Laden’s compound being his most consequential role he talks about in his book.
In his description, he was walking behind his fellow SEAL members while they searched Bin Laden’s compound that was three-stories high. Upstairs, they recognized Bin Laden’s son, Khalid, who was carrying an AK-47.
“Khalid, come here, the SEALs whispered to him. He poked his head out and was shot in the face.”
At that point, the unnamed man who was in charge of the team and O’Neill proceeded up to the top floor of the compound. Right after bursting into Bin Laden’s bedroom, the point man tackled two women whom they thought might have suicide vests on.
“In less than a second, I aimed above the woman’s right shoulder and pulled the trigger twice,” he wrote, according to the New York Daily News. “Bin Laden’s head split open, and he dropped. I put another bullet in his head. Insurance.”
There has been dispute over who actually fired the shot that killed the monster responsible of 911 but most accounts are that O’Neill did, in fact, shoot Bin Laden in the head during the confrontation.
Now, it’s been reported that O’Neill “canoed” the head of Bin Laden, after delivering a series of shots that literally split open his forehead forming into a V shape.
In O’Neill’s book, it states that the operators had to press Bin Laden’s head back together to take identifying photos, however that was not where the mutilation of Bin Laden’s body ended. At least that is according to Jack Murphy of SOFREP, a special-operations news website.
We Are The Mighty reported:
Two sources told Murphy in 2016 that several SEALs took turns pumping round after round into bin Laden’s body, which ended up having more than 100 bullet holes in it.
Murphy, a former Army Ranger, called it “beyond excessive.”
“The picture itself would likely cause an international scandal, and investigations would be conducted which could uncover other operations, activities which many will do anything to keep buried,” he wrote.
After which Bin Laden’s body was taken back to Afghanistan for full identification then transported to the USS Carl Vinson for burial at sea. So, as it stands, somewhere in the Arabian Sea on May 2, 2011, a military officer read the religious remarks that were prepared for Bin Laden and his body was then slid into the sea.
The Defense Department has said that they couldn’t locate photos or videos of the event.
Is that odd?
