AC360 Exclusive: Former Navy SEAL Robert O'Neill in his own words on the shooting of Osama bin Laden

For the first time, we are hearing the former Navy SEAL who claims that he shot and killed Osama bin Laden describe the deadly raid.

Rob O'Neill first shared his story with Esquire Magazine three years ago without publicly revealing his identity. Three days ago, a special forces-oriented web site published his name, just before he was expected to go public in a TV documentary.

For more than a year, O'Neill has been speaking with freelance journalist Alex Quade. She shared her interview tapes exclusively with AC360.

There are serious questions about O'Neill's account of the raid and his decision to break the SEAL's code of silence. Anderson took a closer look at the O'Neill interview with Alex Quade, former Navy SEAL Jonathan Gilliam and CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen.

American Journey: Fort Hood shooting hero

Army Major Patrick Miller was sitting in an office last April at Fort Hood when he heard gunfire and ran toward the danger. Maj. Miller was shot two inches below his heart. As he fought to survive, Maj. Miller fought to keep the shooter out of the office and he protected those around him. Maj. MIller spoke with Poppy Harlow and described the moment he first confronted the shooter saying "when you see someone in the same uniform as you, the same American flag again on the right shoulder, my thought was to protect them."

Much of the country is bracing to get hit with a blustery blast when a new polar vortex is set to swoop down next week. Jennifer Gray has more.

Randi Kaye on interviewing the main suspect in the McStay murders

The suspect accused of killing Joseph Mcstay, his wife and two sons gave just one interview and it was with AC360's Randi Kaye. The family disappeared in 2010 and Chase Merritt was just arrested this week. Randi spoke with him last January for a CNN documentary about the case, after the family's remains were found. Randi's hour-long interview included Merritt's account of the last time he saw Joseph McStay, his polygraph results and even his theory on who could be behind the murders.

Why would Chase Merritt sit down for an interview like this? Anderson discussed the case with Randi Kaye and former FBI profiler Mary Ellen O'Toole.
