Esquire’s Interview With Osama bin Laden Reveals More About the Raid

The March edition of “Esquire” magazine has an interview with the U.S. Navy Seal who killed Osama bin Laden. You’ll learn a lot about how the mission went down, but you will also learn that this soldier who killed the biggest threat to the US, now has no health care, no pension or protection for his family since he left the military in the fall. How does this happen?

The Seal is identified as “The Shooter” in the interview and apparently, many of his fellow special team forces are in the same situation once they leave the military. Despite the fact that millions of dollars were spent to train them, they have a hard time finding a job once they are out.

Why no healthcare or pension? It’s because he left after 16 years of service, which is 4 years short of the 20 that are required for retirement benefits.

In his story about the raid, the Shooter says he went into the bedroom that bin Laden was in and shot the al Qaida leader in the forehead two times. He says, “As I watched him breathe out the last part of air, I thought: Is this the best thing I’ve ever done, or the worst thing Ive ever done? I’m not religious, but I always felt I was put on the earth to do something specific. After that mission, I knew what it was.”
