On CBS’ 60 Minutes last night, Navy SEAL Matt Bissonnette (under the pseudonym Mark Owen) revealed that after he returned to the United States after the successful mission to kill Osama bin Laden, he went to Taco Bell.
Scott Pelley: When you landed back in the United States, what did you think of all the media coverage?
Mark Owen: It was all surreal because, you know, this had all been so hush-hush leading up to it. We went and did it. And now it was the biggest news story ever. We got on a bus. They drove us back to work. I didn’t even go in. They told us we had a couple days off. And I grabbed my keys, went and got in my truck and, you know, I put it in the book. But, you know, I hit Taco Bell on the way home, hit the drive-thru, a couple tacos. And, you know, ate it in my car right there and then drove home.
Scott Pelley: You were part of the team that killed Osama bin Laden and the first thing you do when you get back to the United States is go to Taco Bell?
Mark Owen: Two tacos and a bean burrito. It’s routine.
