Fox News will air an exclusive interview with the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden in a two-night special next month, the network announced Wednesday.
Revealing his identity and speaking out publicly for the first time, the Navy SEAL, also known as “The Shooter,” will share his story of training to be a member of America’s elite fighting force and explain his involvement in Operation Neptune Spear, the mission that killed Bin Laden. The documentary will provide an extensive, first-hand account of the mission, including the unexpected crash of one of the helicopters that night and why SEAL Team 6 feared for their lives. It will also touch upon what was taking place inside the terrorist compound while President Obama and his cabinet watched from the White House.
Offering never before shared details, the presentation will include “The Shooter’s” experience in confronting Bin Laden, his description of the terrorist leader’s final moments as well as what happened when he took his last breath. Additionally, viewers will be offered a behind-the-scenes look at the secret ceremony where he donated the shirt he was wearing during the mission to the National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York City.
"The Man Who Killed Usama Bin Laden" will air Tuesday, Nov. 11 and Wednesday, Nov. 12.
Bin Laden was killed in the U.S. raid on his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in May 2011.
