The U.S. Navy Seal who ‘capped’ Osama Bin Laden in Abottabad, Pakistan has just given an exclusive interview to Esquire magazine, where he slams the military for “abandoning” him after he left the service.
According to the interview, the Seal is “bitter as he waits for disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs,” and because he left the Navy three years before his scheduled retirement, he says he was left withoug health care or a pension.
“I left SEALs on Friday,” the unnamed SEAL told author Phil Bronstein last September. “My health care for me and my family stopped at midnight Friday night.
“I asked if there was some transition from my Tricare to Blue Cross Blue Shield. They said no,” the SEAL told Bronstein, executive chairman of the Center for Investigative Reporting. “You’re out of the service, your coverage is over. Thanks for your sixteen years. Go f— yourself.”
And I remember as I watched him breathe out the last part of air, I thought: Is this the best thing I’ve ever done, or the worst thing I’ve ever done? This is real and that’s him. Holy s—,” the SEAL recalled. “Everybody wanted him dead, but nobody wanted to say, Hey, you’re going to kill this guy. It was just sort of understood that’s what we wanted to do. His forehead was gruesome. It was split open in the shape of a V. I could see his brains spilling out over his face. The American public doesn’t want to know what that looks like.”-Source
