First, there was “Seal Team Six.”
Then there was “Zero Dark Thirty.”
And now? This:
A movie based on the account of ‘The Shooter’ – the man who claims to be the one who killed Osama bin Laden – is allegedly in the works after his story was told last week in Esquire magazine.
In the story of The Shooter – who did not want to be identified but told his story through journalist Phil Bronstein – he describes seeing the terrorist’s brains spill out on to the floor after he shot him before the realization bin Laden’s son was there the whole time.
[He] also lamented over the treatment he received from the government when he retired after the mission, claiming he was abandoned with no health insurance or other benefits.
According to Showbiz 411, a production company called Zulu 7 have secured the rights to Bronstein’s work and signed the rights to the life story of The Shooter himself.
Couple this news with the various books that have been written about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden and you really have to wonder if we’ll ever really know the truth about what happened. And thus, another chapter in revisionist history is born.
