Tata's says his line of duty gives him a unique perspective on the raid that ended Osama bin Laden's life.
"When they got the intelligence in August, that they may have the compound, I'm sure that they constructed a compound and Afghanistan and a compound in the United States, maybe not too far from Wake County and conducted several 'mission rehearsals,' as they are called," Tata said.
Tata says he is proud of all the U.S. Forces that were involved in the operation, as well as all the other men and women in uniform who have dedicated their lives to bringing bin Laden to justice.
"I'm very proud of the Navy SEALs, the Army Special Operations pilots, the Air Force that was flying cover and all the other Joint Special Operations Command folks and all the conventional folks that were involved in that," he said. "That one person who was able to pull that trigger, he was pulling the trigger with millions of Americans behind him, because you think about all the suffering that happened on 9/11."
Tata also says he believes the public should see photos of bin Laden's body.
"I'm quite certain that if our President stood up and said, 'We've got this guy' that he did that with 100 percent confirmation," Tata said. "And I'm quite proud of the troops we have on the ground there. They're very skilled and quite competent, so I'm pretty sure that we got the right guy."
