WASHINGTON D.C.: A former US Navy SEAL who took  part in the 2011 raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound broke cover on Thursday (Friday in Manila), claiming to  be the man who fired the fatal shot which killed the al-Qaeda leader. Robert O’Neill, 38, told The Washington Post he shot bin Laden in the forehead at his hideout in the Pakistani garrison city of Abbottabad three years ago. Jihadists were reported to have swiftly issued a death threat against him following the revelations. The former commando told the Post he decided to come forward   ahead of planned media appearances next week when his identity was disclosed by SOFREP, a website operated by former SEALs.
