WASHINGTON, D.C. – You would think that a dead and buried. Osama bin Laden would be enough for some people, but apparently that’s not the case.
A team of Navy SEALs offed the al-Qaeda leader in his compound in Pakistan in 2011, but the normally silent SEALs are barking about who really killed him.
In the weeks following the raid, SEAL members offered their own versions of what happened that night.
A former SEAL calling himself Mark Owen, wrote a book in which he says the point man fired the first shot at bin Laden, then they all rushed into the room.
Then, another seal wrote in an Esquire magazine article in February that he was bin Laden’s killer, claiming he was face-to-face with bin Laden before he shot the al Qaeda leader in the forehead.
Now, a third SEAL tells CNN that the point man only gravely wounded bin Laden and didn’t get to finish the job because there were two women in the room he thought might be wearing suicide vests.
That’s when two other SEALs are supposed to have come in and made sure bin Laden was dead by shooting him in the chest.
All three stories have one thing in common: a dead bin Laden. And, really, isn’t that all that matters?
