Transcript for Ex-Navy SEAL Takes Credit for Fatal Shot That Killed Osama Bin Laden
And the new firestorm over who killed Osama bin laden. We are seeing and hearing from the Navy S.E.A.L. Who claims he fired the shot. It's drawn criticism from other Navy S.E.A.L.S. Good morning. Reporter: Good morning. He has been criticized for breaking the S.E.A.L. Code of silence. But rob o'neill who says he fired the shots to bin laden's head decided to tell the story anyway. It was a dangerous, daring mission. Going after the most-wanted terrorist in the world. But Navy S.E.A.L. Rob o'neill says in a special airing tonight on Fox News channel, that when S.E.A.L. Team 6 first started training for the mission, they were not told who they would be targeting. Couple of things, we're going to read you in eventually. They said a few names that didn't make sense. A few of us were talking a couple days later, this person, this person, why would they be there? It's bin laden. They found him. We're going to get him. Reporter: And on that may day in 2011, the team moved secretly to do just that. But moving into Pakistan into cover of darkness, o'neill and the team members thought this might be their last. The more we trained, the more we realized this is a one-way mission. We're going to go and not come back. Die when the house blouse up, when he blows up, or we're going to be there too long and arrested by the Pakistanis and spend the rest of our short lives in Pakistan prison. That did not happen. But special operations commanders are not happy about S.E.A.L.S talking about secret missions. They sent out a message about behaving as a quiet professionaling with not one who seeks public notoriety. Thank you very much. What a story.
