Posted on 02/11/2013 6:23:31 AM PST by kristinn
The Navy SEAL Team Six "shooter" who put two rounds into Osama bin Laden's forehead May 2, 2011, is jobless, struggling to pay basic bills and has been offered no protection from the retaliation he anticipates from al Qaeda, according to his first interview.
Only described as "the shooter" by Esquire, he also charges that the SEAL who recently wrote a book about the raid, celebrated in the new movie Zero Dark Thirty, wrongly took credit for killing the 9/11 mastermind. The shooter said that the other SEAL simply shot the corpse of bin Laden in the chest.
The long article in the upcoming magazine said that the shooter came forward to talk about the raid to bring attention to the lack of support offered by the Pentagon or administration for troops once they come home.

He should go to work for Mossad
Most ex-seals don’t remain unemployed long.
Absurd isn’t it.
A suicide mission, in other words.
Why should we believe any of this “interview”?
I am sure Blackwater or some other high end sequrity firm would hire him in an instant.
However, if he wants to run his mouth(unlikely), he could become a consultant for Fox News.
So 0’s administration threw him under the bus?
I am skeptical too. Seals get hired, as they should. They are amazing people, and there’s not a lot of amazing going around.
Welcome to Odungoworld
What!!??? Well, this is an injustice that must be immediately corrected! We must assure that this other Seal is ALSO unemployed as-soon-as-possible and denied protection from those who might seek retribution!
Nuthin' but the best for our boys! (/sarc)
“But the Shooter will discover soon enough that when he leaves after sixteen years in the Navy, his body filled with scar tissue, arthritis, tendonitis, eye damage, and blown disks, here is what he gets from his employer and a grateful nation: nothing. No pension, no health care, and no protection for himself or his family.”
Am going to raise the BS flag. Judging from his injuries incurred in service, he is eligible for disability payments and care from the VA. Also, why separate at 16 years? One more tour would have qualified him for a pension. Very curious.
I’m with you. Why believe this BS? Maybe the writer found a good way to discourage others to fight for their country.
Hold on, I thought OBAMA killed Osama.
The author does not say that "he" killed Obama.
It’s hard to believe what has become of our military. What should be public is kept secret and what should be secret is headlines. This problem is systemic at all levels.
Yes, it sounds like a bunch of hooey.
Reads as though Obama has had all the SEALS associated with the mission blackballed.
