Osama shot himself before seals could get to him

  • Former al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was unarmed and already dead with a bullet to his brain when the US NAVY Seals entered his bedroom of his Abbottabad compound, narrated a US NAVY Seal in his first-hand account of the raid. A copy of the book was obtained by The Huffington Post.

    In the book “No Easy Day”, a SEAL who used the pseudonym Mark Owen wrote that suppressed gunshots were heard when the team was less than five steps away from getting to the top. When the team members entered Bin Laden’s room, they saw his wife wailing over his body, the book added.

    Owen also denied numerous reports that Bin Laden had a weapon and resisted when the Seals entered. He wrote that the al Qaeda leader was unarmed and had been fatally wounded with “blood and brains spilled out of the side of his skull”.

    The writer also negated several other reports, and said that the Seals were not fired at outside the compound nor was there a 40-minute firefight.

    Owen wrote that the raid ‘was being reported like a bad action movie’. “At first, it was funny because it was so wrong,” he added.

    Pentagon says reviewing Bin Laden book

    The Pentagon on Wednesday said it has obtained a copy of a soon-to-be-published book by a former Navy commando who participated in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden and is reviewing it.

    The book was not cleared by US defense officials in advance, raising the possibility that the author could face an investigation and possible criminal prosecution.

    “We have obtained a copy and are reviewing it,” Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman told Reuters.

    “No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama Bin Laden” was written under the pseudonym Mark Owen with co-author Kevin Maurer and was to be released next month on the anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

    Its publication has been moved up to September 4, according to reports by some media outlets.

    National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor on Wednesday had no comment on the book, but said: “As President Obama said on the night that justice was brought to Osama bin Laden, ‘We give thanks for the men who carried out this operation, for they exemplify the professionalism, patriotism, and unparalleled courage of those who serve our country.’”

    The former SEAL is now facing threats against his life in addition to possible charges. Officials have said the military would take legal action against anyone who exposed sensitive information that could harm fellow forces.

    Earlier this month US officials said they were surprised by the book, which was not vetted by government agencies to ensure that no secrets were revealed.


  • is there any evidence that osama was there in the first place?

  • Misleading title.

    According to the book he got shot in the cross fire earlier on before seals arrived in his room.

    When seals arrived in his room, Osama was taking his final breathes and was almost dead.

    It was not like he was dead a month ago and they placed his body in the room. He was killed during the operation, according tothe book.

  • Also the book says the 2 weapons in osama's room were untouched and unloaded.

  • @Respect Saab

    There certainly is ... his DNA samples were matched to his kids, wives, organic chickens, lambs and many other things that he used. Also his party acknowledged the fact. What will it take for PTI to get on same page?


  • His family and widows were interviewed thoroughly by our security agencies, so if there was any gimmick it probably would have come out by now???

    I feel the operation was not a hoax and he was there at the time.

  • yaa kahein aisa tou nahi hoaa kay Kyani ne apnay banday ko order diaa kay jaldi se kaam tamam karr doo kahein yeh poll nahi khool day?

  • @shirazi

    what has PTI got to do with this, cannot I have my own personal opinion regards to this?


    also where is the so called video that obama and clinton was watching live when this was happening?

    also why throw osama body into sea?

  • Remember he was a sick almost retired man . He has a rope in a room from a 'Kunda' in the roof where he taught his children , He was unable to stand a long on his feet . We Pakistanis are so helpless that we never knew the truth . There was a judicial commission but they never told us any thing .

  • respect bhai you are wasting your time with a junior korhi

    his so obsessed with whatever his aaka/master utters

  • @Respect bahi

    Don't be shy whole PTI is fundoo party like you. Your personal opinion is not much different from main stream party.

    What about Osama's audio/video that used to come quarterly? Should we wait for one 3 days prior to Obama's re-election?

    BTW if Osama is alive how come Mullah Omar is your Ameeer ul Momaneen?

    He walked the talk, not only preached suicide but committed one too.
