Navy Seal breaks silence on Bin Laden's death

Navy Seal breaks silence on Bin Laden's death

The commando who killed Osama bin Laden broke his silence about the al-Qaida leader and the financial anxiety he now faces as an unemployed civilian.

The Navy Seal kept his identity secret in the Esquire magazine profile but revealed his role in the daring May 2011 raid for the first time, as well as the worries he has for his family's security.

"He looked confused. And way taller than I was expecting," he says of Bin Laden.

When the commandos came upon Bin Laden in the dark on the third floor of his Pakistani hideout, the al-Qaida mastermind had his hands on his youngest wife's shoulders, "pushing her ahead" and there was a AK-47 nearby.



"I don't know if she's got a vest and she's being pushed to martyr them both. 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)," the commando says.

"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 says.

"He was dead. Not moving. His tongue was out."
