A website for U.S. special operations forces, SOFREP, has released a new report that tries to shed light on why photographs of Osama bin Laden were not released to the public. Unnamed sources from the special ops community have said that the photos were too gory to be released, according to The Huffington Post.

Contrary to reports from U.S. officials, troops that took part in the raid on bin Laden’s compound fired countless shots into the body after he was already dead.


Matt Bissonnette, one of the members of SEAL Team Six, said in his book “No Easy Day,” that he and another member of the team fired “several” rounds into the body of bin Laden in an effort to make sure he was dead. SOFREP has been told by sources that the shooting was more excessive than described by Bissonnette:

“But this is perhaps the most measured and polite description that one could give of how operator after operator took turns dumping magazines-worth of ammunition into Bin Laden’s body, two confidential sources within the community have told us. When all was said and done, UBL had over a hundred bullets in him, by the most conservative estimate.”

The initial reports about the raid said that two shots were fired in the killing of bin Laden. In reports that followed, the number of shots fired continued to climb. SOFREP said that claims of “over a hundred bullets” would be “self-indulgence.”
