Former Navy SEAL Robert O'Neill claims that he fired the shot that killed Osama bin Laden. His account of the Abbottabad raid has triggered intense outrage and it is being disputed by some of his comrades in SEAL Team Six.
Robert O'Neill spoke to The Lead's Jake Tapper today, detailing his version of the raid and he addressed the backlash that came after going public with his story.
John Berman looked at the interview and discussed it with Jake, along with former Navy SEAL Jonathan Gilliam and CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen.
Robert O'Neill also responded to criticism from former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. Secretary Panetta did not mince words on the issue, saying that SEALs are bound by their promise not to reveal details about sensitive operations without clearance from the Pentagon. Secretary Panetta went on to say breaking that promise compromises the military's ability to go after America's enemies.
