London, Feb. 12 (ANI): The female CIA agent, who had spent her life working on hunting down al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden wept when she was shown his body, the Navy SEAL who shot him dead has revealed.

In an interview to Esquire Magazine's March edition, the Team Six member spoke out for the first time about the moment he shot down Laden, three times in the face.

According to Daily Mail, describing the moment he shot him he said 'in that second, I shot him, two times in the forehead. The second time as Laden went down.

The SEAL said that Laden crumpled onto the floor in front of his bed and I hit him again. He was dead. I watched him take his last breath.

He also told Phil Bronstein, Executive Chair of the Center for Investigative Reporting, that he gave the CIA agent the magazine he had used with three bullets missing as a souvenir, the report said.

'The Shooter', as he is known to protect his identity and the safety of his wife and children, also praised the female agent as 'awesome and a tough woman,' it added.

Her role was dramatized in the film Zero Dark Thirty in which she was called 'Maya' and played with critical acclaim by Jessica Chastain.

The first time 'The Shooter' met her was in a pre-mission briefing in which she told all the men that they have got Laden'.

When the mission got underway, they met again in a base in Jalalabad, Pakistan. when Team Six were told: 'One hundred percent he's on the third floor. So get to there if you can.'

The agent's most emotional moment came when it was all finished.

In his account in Esquire, The Shooter wrote that 'while they were still checking the body, he brought the agency woman over,' adding that 'we looked down and I asked, "Is that your guy?" She was crying.

The Shooter added that 'that's when I took my magazine out of my gun and gave it to her as a souvenir. Twenty-seven bullets left in it. That was the last time I saw her.'

The shooter did however go and see Zero Dark Thirty and said that it had been given the 'Hollywood' treatment compared to real life, it added. (ANI)
