The real-life story behind Hollywood`s "American Sniper," rolled out this holiday season, has been a dark tale of lawsuits and a pending murder trial for the man accused of gunning down the movie`s hero.
Former Navy SEAL Robert O'Neill, who says he fired the shots that killed Osama bin Laden, played a role in some of the most consequential combat missions of the post-9/11 era, including three depicted in Hollywood movies. And now he's telling the world about them.
New York: A former Navy SEAL who wrote a book describing the raid that killed Osama bin Laden sued his former lawyers for malpractice, saying they gave him bad advice that tarnished his reputation, cost him his US security clearance and caused him to surrender much of the book's income to the government.
The top U.S. Special operations commander, Adm. William McRaven, ordered military files about the Navy SEAL raid on Osama bin Laden`s hideout to be purged from Defense Department computers and sent to the CIA.
A US sailor testified Wednesday he saw a Navy SEAL punch an Iraqi prisoner suspected of masterminding the killings of four US private security contractors, as the court-martial of another member opened at military base in Baghdad.
