One would think that if you had accomplished a task like killing the world’s most wanted man that you would be able to get through life pretty uneventfully after that.
Well, the problem is that in today’s climate you have the issue of every single thing someone says being looked at like it’s the launch codes or something. The issue with liberals complaining about everything is that it wouldn’t be so bad if they weren’t trying to burn down every major city.
Robert O’Neill killed the most murderous terrorist of all time: Osama bin Laden, the sick mastermind who was responsible for almost 3,000 deaths on Sept. 11, 2001, alone. He and the rest of SEAL Team 6 are immortalized as American heroes.
O’Neill is stateside now, having retired from the service. And he watched, as we all did, as our country took a turn for the worst in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody on May 25. Make no mistake: That death was a tragedy. So was what followed — looting and rioting that debased not only Floyd’s death but also those who were protesting against it.
There’s nothing that convinces people of the righteousness of your cause less than turning neighborhoods into glass-strewn hulls of themselves. It was painful to watch, particularly in the midst of a generational crisis, both epidemiologically and economically.
Watching from home, O’Neill had eight words for the rioters destroying America:
“I cannot believe I fought to defend you.”
