SEAL Who Shot bin Laden Tells Biden to Give Him 'Nine Guys' So He Can Rescue Abandoned Americans
Rob O’Neill, the former Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden in 2011, shared his frustration Friday on Fox News regarding the military response to the crisis in Afghanistan.
O’Neill in fact said that if given the green light, he would only need himself and a small force to rescue Americans trapped in the country by Taliban terrorists.
During an appearance on “Primetime,” host Will Cain asked the former SEAL for his response to the failure of American political and military leadership to evacuate Americans who are right now at the mercy of Taliban terrorists.
WARNING: The following video contains graphic language that some viewers will find offensive.
“Look, I don’t want to be in charge, but if I was would I want to get the Americans? Cool. Give me nine guys, I’m gonna walk through the streets and I’m gonna kill everyone I see, and I’m gonna grab the Americans,” said O’Neill.
Sharing his disgust with the White House and Pentagon, the former SEAL said the situation on the ground is much more simple than is being portrayed.
“It is not difficult. But we have these people who are in charge that are a disgrace. I am amazed that there hasn’t been at least 30 generals and admirals that haven’t resigned or been fired today,” he told Cain. “But we won’t because we have a commander-in-chief that was put there through whatever happened at four in the morning on election night.”
“This is nonsense. It’s insulting,” he said. O’Neill added he is a big believer in keeping things “simple.”
“I’m a big believer in the acronym KISS: Keep it simple, stupid. And I was talking to another SEAL Team Six operator with whom I served for 20 years,” he stated. “I’m just going to call him Tiny. And Tiny told me the response: ‘Here’s how you get the Americans out. Tiny smash with hammer. And that’s it.’” O’Neill said that every veteran he has talked with about the crisis in Afghanistan has summarized their feelings as “gross.”
“That’s how you should feel. You should feel gross,” he said. “We don’t ask the Taliban permission. You know what we do? We kick their a**, that’s it.”
O’Neill took flak from those with opposing political views on Twitter for talking about killing terrorists on primetime TV:
"I don't want to be in charge, but if I was ... give me 9 guys, I'm gonna walk through the streets [in Afghanistan] and I'm gonna kill everyone I see, and I'm gonna grab the Americans. It is not difficult" -- Rob O'Neill— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 20, 2021

I believe the Soviets tried this. Didn’t really work out. https://t.co/BEcFXiDLvl— southpaw (@nycsouthpaw) August 20, 2021
