I have waiting to find out more about the assasination of Osama bin Laden and who the shooter was behind his death. Now we know.

The Navy SEAL who shot Osama bin Laden dead in the special force's most famous operation can be named today.

The Navy hero is set to give a full interview to Fox News later this month and waive his anonymity but MailOnline has stated that Osama bin Laden's shooter is Rob O'Neill, a highly-decorated veteran who quit after 16 years service.

In an exclusive interview, Rob's father, Tom O'Neill, told MailOnline, "People are asking if we are worried that ISIS will come and get us because Rob is going public. I say I'll paint a big target on my front door and say come and get us."

Rob O'Neill, 38, is a former member of SEAL Team Six who has been portrayed on screen in Zero Dark Thirty, Captain Phillips and Lone Survivor.
