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.

    We have been wondering since this happened who it was that pulled the trigger.
