Osama Bin Laden was dead as US Marines arrived


Former al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden was unarmed and already dead with a bullet to his brain when the US NAVY SEALS entered his bedroom in his Abbottabad compound, narrated a US Navy SEAL in his first-hand account of the raid. The Huffington Post has obtained a copy of the book. In the book “No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama Bin Laden”, 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 the al Qaeda chief’s room, they saw his wife wailing over his body, the book added. Owen also denied numerous reports that 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. It is vital to mention here that the book was not cleared by US Defence officials in advance, raising the possibility that the author could face an investigation and possible criminal prosecution.
