Colorado Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn shared a story Saturday about spending time and joking with the member of Seal Team Six who shot al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
“Let me tell you a little story,” Lamborn said at a town hall event in Colorado Springs. “Because I’m on Armed Services I get to talk with some of our greatest heroes in this country. And I was visiting recently with the guy who shot and killed Osama bin Laden from Navy Seal Team Six. He’s a hero, he’s a hero.”
“He was back stateside, he has two little girls, and they were getting ready to go somewhere and he was listening to the radio. And the guy on the radio, this was a year afterward, the guy on the radio said ‘do you remember where you were a year ago when you found out Osama bin Laden was dead?’ And he thought to himself ‘yeah I was in his bedroom staring down at his corpse.’”
As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, Lamborn has viewed the photos of bin Laden’s corpse that were not released publicly.
