The Man Who Killed Osama Bin Laden Is a Redskins Fan

Esquire's Phil Bronstein wrote a riveting feature for the magazine's March issue about the unnamed Navy SEAL who killed Osama Bin Laden in May 2011 and it certainly is worth your time.

And if you needed any more reason to admire the man who played a pivotal role in bringing down the alleged mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, then here it is: He's a Redskins fan:

By early September of last year, the Shooter was out, officially. Retired.

He had survived his last deployment, and there was a barbecue near his house to celebrate with about thirty close friends from "the community." The Redskins were on, his favorite team, and there was lots of Commando ale, brewed by a former SEAL.

Hail to the SEALS.
