Osama was dead before SEALS raided the compound
Contradicting the earlier claims that Osama Bin Laden was armed and resisted when Navy SEALS raided his Abbottabad compound, the author of 'No Easy Day', a SEAL who took part in the operation has claimed in the book that the world's most wanted man was already dead with a bullet to the brain.

WELL THIS is not a conspiracy theory but a firsthand account of a Navy SEAL who was part of the group that was reported to have killed the world's most wanted man. Contradicting the earlier claims that Osama Bin Laden was armed and resisted during the operation, the author who chose to remain anonymous has revealed that Laden was already dead with a bullet to the brain and was not armed.

Quoting from the book, the Huffington Post wrote that Seal team members took their time entering the room, where they saw the women wailing over Bin Laden, who wore a white sleeveless T-shirt, loose tan pants and a tan tunic.

“As the SEALS ascended a narrow staircase, the team's point man saw a man poke his head from a doorway,” Post quotes from the book 'No Easy Day'. "We were less than five steps from getting to the top when I heard suppressed shots. BOP. BOP," writes the author with pseudonym Mark Owen. "I couldn't tell from my position if the rounds hit the target or not. The man disappeared into the dark room."

"Blood and brains spilled out of the side of his skull” and he was still twitching and convulsing, Owen writes. While bin Laden was in his death throes, Owen writes that he and another SEAL "trained our lasers on his chest and fired several rounds. The bullets tore into him, slamming his body into the floor until he was motionless."

According to the author, the seals then interrogated a girl who was wailing over the dead body and she confirmed that it was Bin Laden. With this story, the questions earlier raised against the pentagon that it was an assassination would become more fiercer, as it has claimed that Osama resisted.

Not only has the seal's book turned topsy-turvy early account of the operation, he, along with other SEALS is also pissed off at the credit, Obama would take from the raid. “And we’ll get Obama re-elected for sure. I can see him now, talking about how he killed bin Laden,” Owen writes about the joke which one of the seals bursted while sitting in Afghanistan. “We had seen it before when he took credit for the Captain Phillips rescue. Although we applauded the decision-making in this case, there was no doubt in anybody’s mind that he would take all the political credit for this too,” Owen writes.
