9/11 museum shows SEAL’s shirt from bin Laden raid

    The shirt a Navy SEAL wore in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden is going on display at the Sept. 11 museum, along with a special coin given to a CIA officer who played a key role in finding him.

    The items are going on view at the museum Sunday, days before the anniversary of the terrorist attacks.

    They will join an existing display with a brick from the compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, where bin Laden was killed in May 2011.

    The uniform shirt belonged to a now-retired member of SEAL Team Six, which put an end to the long manhunt. The coin was made to commemorate the operation. It was owned by the CIA officer who inspired the main character in the Oscar-winning 2012 movie “Zero Dark Thirty.”
