ORLANDO, Fla. (MCT) — Fox News Channel will reveal the identity of Osama bin Laden's killer in a two-part documentary next month.

"The Man Who Killed Usama Bin Laden" — that is Fox News' spelling — will premiere at 10 p.m. Nov. 11 and 12.

Washington correspondent Peter Doocy hosts the program, which Fox News said will offer an "exclusive interview with the Navy SEAL who says he fired the shots that killed terrorist leader Usama Bin Laden."

That SEAL, known as "The Shooter," will describe confronting bin Laden in the May 2011 mission in Pakistan. He also will describe the terrorist's final moments.

The documentary will offer footage of a secret ceremony at the National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York City. During that event, "The Shooter" donated the shirt he was wearing during the mission.

But the main news is that "The Shooter" will be "revealing his identity and speaking out publicly for the first time," Fox News said.
