Osama bin Laden “died like a p-y, ” the man who killed the terrorist leader said of the covert Pakistani mission to take out the cowering Al Qaeda chief.
“But anytime anyone says, ‘You know, my brother died at Cantor Fitzgerald, or my mom whatever, ’ one thing I tell them is, ‘All right, Osama bin Laden died like a p-y. That’s all I’m telling you. Just so you know. He died afraid, and he knew that we were there to kill him.”
The 38-year-old O'Neill was revealed this month ahead of a televised interview to air Tuesday as the man responsible for pumping three slugs in bin Laden’s head during the raid on the terrorist’s Abbottabad compound on May 2, 2011.AP
Another SEAL, Matt Bissonnette, wrote a 2012 book, "No Easy Day, " about the raid.

The Navy command is upset by the breach of the SEALs code of silence, which has been violated by O'Neill and Matt Bissonnette, who wrote 'No Easy Day' about his time in the military.CNN
Reporter Alex Quade spoke extensively with O'Neill about the mission.
“To me it doesn't matter anymore if I am ‘The Shooter, ’ he said.
“The team got him. It was a successful mission. Regardless of the negativity that comes with it, I don’t give a f-. We got him. We brought him out and we lived. And there obviously will go down historically, but I don’t care if I'm “the shooter”. And there are people who think I’m not. So whatever.”
O’Neill’s military colleagues have ostracized him for speaking out.
Force Master Chief Michael Magaraci and Rear Adm. Brian Losey, both of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Command, penned an Oct. 31 letter blasting former SEAL members for speaking out about their service.
“A critical tenant (sic) of our Ethos is ‘I do not advertise the nature of my work, nor seek recognition for my actions, ” Magaraci and Losey wrote to former and present SEALs.
“Our Ethos is a life-long commitment and obligation, both in and out of the Service. Violators of our Ethos are neither Teammates in good standing, nor Teammates who represent Naval Special Warfare.”
