Bin Laden Shooter Identified

Send to Kindle


The Navy SEAL who shot Osama bin Laden has come forward, publicly identifying himself, the UK’s Daily Mail reports.

Robert O’Neill, a 16 year Navy veteran, is the operative who allegedly fired the initial shots that killed bin Laden.

O’Neil is scheduled to do an interview with Fox News in the coming week, Nov. 11-12.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, the soldier’s father addressed the apparent danger that comes with going public about being involved with the OBL raid.

“People are asking if we are worried that ISIS will come and get us because Rob is going public,” Tom O’Neill, Robert’s father, told the Mail Online. “I say I’ll paint a big target on my front door and say come and get us.”

Though, not everyone is as gung ho about SEALs talking shop in the limelight.

Recently, Rear Adm. Brian Losey, head of NSWC, and Force Master Chief Michael Magaraci released a letter meant to remind special forces veterans that disclosing information about their trade and service goes against the community’s core values.

“At Naval Special Warfare’s core is the SEAL ethos,” stated the letter obtained by Navy Times. “A critical tenant of our ethos is ‘I do not advertise the nature of my work, nor seek recognition for my actions.’ Our ethos is a life-long commitment and obligation, both in and out of the service. Violators of our ethos are neither teammates in good standing, nor teammates who represent Naval Special Warfare.”

The letter was in response to another SEAL, Mark Owen, who appeared on CBS’s “60 Minutes” to discuss the legal fallout that occurred upon the release of his book, “No Easy Day,” which described the Osama bin Laden raid in great detail. The book was published without the Department of Defense’s approval.

    Thank you! Robert O’Neill, They should make a movie about it and brag to the high heavens.
    #6@$ you! CBS and all the PC pussys with your terrorist buddies.
    The USA has only one target, and that would be the enemy.
    The biggest enemy of all is Obama.
    Since Barack Hussein claims to have taken him out, maybe the idiot camel jockeys could aim for him?
    I would love to punch a bitch in the face for putting down a soldier that will go down in history as a great hero.

    Seems to me that this Idiot just made himself and his family targets for terrorists who just may be P.O.ed that he took out their supreme leader. And he did it for the wrong reasons, money and his 15 minutes of fame.

      He’s from Butte, MT, and he’s Irish. I suppose not everyone knows what that means, but any ISIS trog that wants to give it a shot will find out pretty quick.

    As a military man part of me agrees with the NSWC, DEVGRU or whoever, these guys do present themselves in a negative light when they seek money, fame, recognition or whatever. It seems the new “look at me” generation has made it’s way to the top tier of our Navy’s elite forces. The other side, loves the story and says F’ck yeah! So i’m torn…
