O'Neill book set for April release

(BUTTE)- The book by the Butte man who claims to have taken the killing shot which ended the life of Osama bin Laden is due for an April release. 

Rob O'Neill was a Navy SEAL who was on the 2011 raid on bin Laden's compound in Pakistan where the Al-Qaeda leader was taken after several years on the run following the 9-11 terrorist attacks in the U.S. O'Neill made the claim a couple of years ago and has been traveling around the country making appearances as a motivational speaker, although he's come under some criticism from others for telling the story. 

Now, publisher Scribner will share O'Neill's story in a new book called "The Operator". A posting online shows the book will be available on April 25th. 

The description says the book will detail more than 400 missions, including the bin Laden raid, and the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips from Somali pirates. The publisher describes the book as "stirringly evocative, thought-provoking and often jaw-dropping."
