So Civilians, Bin Laden Killer be Poor Suddenly

WASHINGTON - Army elite United States (U.S.) who killed al-Qaeda leader, Osama Bin Laden, in 2011 and is now destitute. Unnamed man who is now unemployed and tangled financial problems because they can not adapt to civilian life.
Osama bin Laden was killed in a covert operation carried out by troops of the U.S. elite. Bin Laden was killed at his hideout in the city of Abbottabad, Pakistan.

"I shot him twice in the forehead. At that time there was an AK-47 rifle nearby, I consider it threatening condition and decided to shoot straight, "the man said in testimony to the magazine Esquire.

"He died right after I shot, his body was not moving and his tongue sticking out," he said as quoted by AFP on Tuesday (12/02/2013).

Although it could be considered sebagah hero, bin Laden was the shooter did not get welfare benefits from the U.S. government. That's because he only joined the military just over 16 years, while for a pension, U.S. troops should at least have a term of 20 years.

"He has contributed so much to this nation, but the government has now abandoned him just like that," said the wife of the man.

The U.S. government itself actually prohibits them former soldiers to talk to the media without permission. The Ministry of Defense also said it will examine whether the testimony in Esquire magazine was leaking state secrets.

The testimony is the second issued by members of the elite participants in the raid of Osama bin Laden's hideout. Last year one of the soldiers who took part in the event, Matt Bissonette, took testimony in his book No Easy Day.
