A new Esquire report is making headlines for its in-depth profile of the Navy Seal Team Six member who shot and killed Osama bin Laden. The former Seal opened up to reporter Phil Bronstein about his role in the mission, but also about the hardships he has faced after he left the military in September 2012, including a months-long wait for his disability claim to be considered and a lack of health insurance.
The shooter says his health insurance halted the day he ended his service, but an article published by the U.S. military's independent newspaper, Stars and Stripes, rebuts that, noting that the Seal is automatically eligible for five years of free health care through the Department of Veteran Affairs.
On HuffPost Live Monday, Bronstein spoke about the time he spent with the shooter and how it took over a year of relationship-building to gain his trust for an interview. »
