He has been portrayed in numerous Hollywood films, but the true identity of the man responsible for Osama Bin Laden’s 2011 death has been kept a secret until now.

Former Navy SEAL Team Six member Rob O’Neill has been identified as the shooter of the infamous 9/11 mastermind.

Osama Bin Laden’s son-in-law found guilty of terrorism

The 38-year-old was set to reveal his identity during an interview with Fox News, but his announcement has already been leaked by his father, Tom O’Neill, on the 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,” Tom said.

“My ex-wife gave birth to a man. We shouldn’t be cowering in fear.”

Rob’s decision to finally speak out about the pivotal event was reportedly prompted by a loss of his military benefits after he quit the Navy four years out from the required 20 years of service.

A decorated veteran, Rob completed a dozen tours of duty in active combat and more than 400 separate combat missions.

Rob shot and killed Bin Laden at close range during an American raid on the terror leader’s Pakistan home on May 11, 2011.

He is the second SEAL team member to speak out and may face legal action for going public.
