Robert O’Neill, the former SEAL identified in several news accounts as the “shooter” who fired the fatal shot to bin Laden’s head at close range, now says “it doesn’t matter” who did so during that US raid on bin Laden’s compound hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in 2011.

“The most important thing that I’ve learned in the last two years is to me it doesn’t matter anymore if I am ‘The Shooter.’ The team got him,” Mr. O’Neill said in an audio interview with freelance journalist Alex Quade, a former CNN correspondent that aired Friday on CNN’s “AC360.”

No doubt Fox News will try to pin him down on this point in its two-part interview with O’Neill to be aired this coming week.
