The Navy Seal who claims to have killed Osama bin Laden is being named ahead of a Fox News interview.

The UK's "Daily Mail" identifies Robert O'Neill as the member of Seal Team 6 who fired the shots that killed bin Laden.

O'Neill is a former senior chief with two Silver Stars and four Bronze Stars among his decorations.

He left the Navy after 16 years and is now a public speaker. O'Neill will be interviewed on Fox News on November 11th.

A Navy spokesman said he could not speculate on the identity of the interview subject. He said the Navy command will respond after the interview has aired. (Metro Networks Inc.)
