Ridiculous OBL Story Continues To Fall Apart

In February Esquire magazine released an interview with a member of Seal Team 6 going by the alias, The Shooter. The Shooter claims to be the one who pulled the trigger and killed OBL. He told Esquire that he found Bin Laden in his room standing with “a gun in reach” and proceeded to shoot the purported Al-Qaeda leader twice in the head.

This was not the first account of the night raid on the Bin Laden compound. Mark Bissonette, wrtiting under the name Mark Owen, claimed to be the one to have pulled the trigger. In his book, No Easy Day, Bissonette tells a story that conflicts with The Shooters’ story.

 According to CNN another member of Seal Team 6 has come out to speak on the issue.

“Another member of the secretive SEAL Team 6, which executed the bin Laden raid, tells CNN the story of the Shooter as presented in Esquire is false. According to this serving SEAL Team 6 operator, the story is “complete B-S.”

They go on to say, “SEAL Team 6 operators are now in “serious lockdown” when it comes to “talking to anybody” about the bin Laden raid and say they have been frustrated to see what they consider to be the inaccurate story in Esquire receive considerable play without a response.” 
 At present we are given 3 different interpretations of the events of that night. Is it possible all 3 could be false? Is it possible that who ever was killed that night was not Osama Bin Laden?

As early as 2001 we find reports of Bin Laden’s death. He had many kidney problems and was on a mobile dialysis machine.  On December 26, 2001,we find a Fox News report on the Pakistan Observer story that the Taliban had officially pronounced Osama Bin Laden dead earlier that month. The report goes on to say:

“He suffered serious complications and died a natural, quiet death. He was buried in Tora Bora, a funeral attended by 30 Al Qaeda fighters, close members of his family and friends from the Taliban. By the Wahhabi tradition, no mark was left on the grave.”…
