Osama was unarmed
We were less than five steps from getting to the top when I heard shots. … In his death throes, he was still twitching and convulsing. Another assaulter and I trained our lasers on his chest and fired several rounds. The bullets tore into him, slamming his body into the floor until he was motionless. … Lying in front of me was the reason we had been fighting for the last decade. It was surreal trying to clean the blood off the most wanted man in the world so that I could shoot his photo.
Another excerpt revealed that the al Qaeda leader was unarmed when he was gunned down:
“He had no intention of fighting,” Owen writes.
I suppose it means very little that Osama was unarmed since he was ultimately responsible for the murders of thousands of people, not the least of whom were the victims of 9/11. It leaves a slightly bad taste in my mouth, but he had it coming.
And we all get what’s coming to us. Believe me…
