Obama takes credit for killing Osama bin Laden (transcript below):
Obama: “I, I, I, me, me me, I, I, I, me, me, me, blah, blah, blah, I, I, I, …”
The Washington Examiner reported:
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.
Esquire said its story “reveals untold, unforgettable details of the historic nighttime raid in May, 2011 at bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and stands as the definitive account of what happened there that night. It also offers a sobering portrait of life after the military and makes the case that the government largely abandons its most elite and highly-trained soldiers after their service is over.”
So, as Jim Hoft points out, “… not only did the Obama Administration out the SEALs who killed Osama Bin Laden–but now the shooter is homeless.”
