Skip to comments.Navy SEALs 'took turns dumping HUNDREDS of bullets' into Osama bin Laden's dead body, report
Posted on 03/15/2014 6:16:24 AM PDT by InvisibleChurch
Special operations sources have claimed that the terror leader was shot more than one hundred times in the fatal 2011 raid.
A new report from a website known within the intelligence and armed services community claims that the sheer number of times that Osama bin Laden was shot is the reason why the government has never released photos of his dead body.
Citing two confidential sources, The Special Operations Forces Situation Report tells how 'operator after operator took turns dumping magazines-worth of ammunition into Bin Ladens body'.
The site goes on to argue that while the Navy SEALs may have felt it was 'morally, legally, and ethically appropriate to shoot the body a few times to ensure that he is really dead and no longer a threat,' that does not justify the extent of this damage.
'What happened on the Bin Laden raid is beyond excessive. The level of excess shown was not about making sure that Bin Laden was no longer a threat. The excess was pure self-indulgence,' author Jack Murphy writes.

This makes them look like wild eyed cowboys which they definitely aren't........
A SEAL said this was insurance for the team. No one SEAL could be exposed as the one killing him, they all did.
A relative of mine is a former SEAL. When I relayed to him the news about bin Laden’s demise, he wasn’t surprised.
But when I told him the body was buried at sea, his response was an instant “no, it wasn’t.” He said there was no chance, none whatsoever, that the body wasn’t brought back to the U.S.
It was necessary for the pig’s blood dipped bullets to make entry. Was taking no chances ... imagine bin laden explaining that to allah (the devil).
He must have been dead from his kidney disease YEARS before—iffen bombs on Tora Bora didn’t get him first.
The corpse? Most likely an elder son who was a dead ringer for his old man, IMHO.
MANY people on both sides had the need to keep him “alive” with phony tapes, etc.
Meh. Report taken from a paid subscriber based special operations blog site open to anyone willing to pay and make claims.
Excellent. They hopefully dipped each one in pigs blood.
Seriously, what difference does it make? (Not a Hitlery reference).
Why should anyone in a civilized society do anything but yawn at this?
Not a peep from the “just-us brothers”. WTH?

I definitely agree with you. It's a “protect Obama” story. Why did he supposedly bury Osama’s body at sea? This story pretends it was to protect the SEALS. Give me a break. Obama, Biden, and Panetta didn't care enough about the SEALs to protect the unit's identity. The investigation into what happened to SEAL Team 6 in the helicopter downing has never been completely told.
I doubt it happened, but even if they did go all “Inglorious Basterds” on him - so what? Couldn’t happen to a more deserving corpse. I hope the devils that grabbed his soul made him watch his cranial ventilation before dragging him to hell.
After he was dead he didn’t feel a thing, so I’m sure he didn’t mind.
Like the 200,000 or so people that claim to have been in attendance when Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in Hershey.
Exactly - he would have been happy to die 100 times over for islam. Aren’t they all honoured to die for islam? Well being massacred for islam is even better.
Four SEALS with their MP5’s could have put more than 100 rounds in the crap pile before gravity caused his dead carcass to fall to the floor. They don’t use bolt guns. This jackass needs to learn to shut up. Anonymous sources my backside.
In the eloguent words of that Florida sheriff after his men had shot a fleeing murderer over 60 times said when asked why they shot him so many times said: because that is all the bullets they had.
...based on their long term experience that they wouldn't need any bullets during their escape from the the compound.
We should have done to him, what they did to William Wallace at the end of Braveheart.
By the way, I don’t believe this story at all. If this raid every really took place, the SEALs would have still been in extreme danger, and wouldn’t have wasted their ammunition.
This reeks of after action embellishment.
The Special Ops knew they were recovering the body and would not risk Command learning of such actions.
BS...US Navy SEALs are highly trained professionals and were in a situation where they may have been involved at anytime in a firefight. They would NOT have be fool hardy enough to waste ammunition. Certainly OBL was shot more than once, but highly trained SEALs would not need a fusillade of bullets to do the deed.
