Navy Seal account of Bin Laden raid contradicts White House claims

No Easy Day, to be published next week, raises questions over whether Osama bin Laden presented a clear threat to US forces









A first-hand account of the US Navy Seal raid that killed Osama bin Laden contradicts previous accounts by administration officials, raising questions over whether he presented a clear threat when he was first fired upon.



Bin Laden apparently was hit in the head when he looked out of his bedroom door into the top-floor hallway of his compound as Seals rushed up a narrow stairwell in his direction, according to a former Navy Seal writing under the pseudonym Mark Owen in No Easy Day. The book is to be published next week by Penguin's Dutton imprint.



The Seal says he was directly behind a "point man" going up the stairs. "Less than five steps" from the top of the stairs, he heard "suppressed" gunfire: "Bop. Bop." The point man had seen a "man peeking out

  • who gives a fuck. the only regret is that his death was probably swift ... i'd have slowly lowered the cunt into boiling pit fat ... over maybe a couple of weeks.

  • I was hoping the book was somewhat more factual when he wrote "Bin Laden's body was treated with dignity" and Walt was sitting on Bin Laden's chest as the body lay at the author's feet in the middle of the cabin ... what he meant to write was Walt was actually taking a crap on Bin laden's chest while us fellow seals were stubbing out our victory cigars in his eyes before we cut off his cock and nuts to use as a door knocker on our barracks door back at base .... well thats how I read i More..

  • All this is is another reason to drag terrorism into the spotlight. Their 'raid' never provided any tangible proof beyond the obviously fake photo-shopping of the wound, an overly dramatic war-room photo and a mountain of hearsay. This is just reinforcement of the utter bullshit that is their 'War on Terror'. But keep on buying into it, folks. We need a boogeyman to justify the defense budget and keep the people shuddering in their boots at the thought of the evil Muslims who hate us for our fre More..

  • they shouldn't have killed him. they should've captured him to torture him for as long as medically possible. gun shot to the head was too good for this scum.

  • lol What a joke. bin laden has supposed to have died years ago in Afghanistan because of kidney failure. Cant believe anyone would believe what the Americans claim especially when theres NO body. Now wonder having dumb citizens is Govt policy in the US. The people there will digest anything stuffed down their throats by their Govt.

  • Of course their stories are different it's because they're both bs. Bin laden died of kidney failure in december 2001. That's why we didn't see pictures, because they don't exist.

    • @T0M65 No proof is there. You wouldn't believe it even if there was concrete evidence because you have your mind in the clouds.

  • Whether he's killed with intent or not does not matter the most. What dead people of 911 want is to serve justice to whom it is intended to. End of story.
