The ex-Navy SEAL who shot Osama bin Laden is going public with his identity even before a planned interview on Fox, and his father says the family isn’t afraid of anybody.
And that includes the United States military as well as bin Laden’s deranged followers, according to the New York Post.
The man until now known only as “The Shooter” is named Robert O’Neill, a 38-year-old from Montana who fired three shots into bin Laden’s head during a 2011 SEAL raid on the terrorist mastermind’s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
O’Neill has drawn threats from the military establishment for his decision to go public, and terrorists worldwide no doubt would love to make an example of him, but his father says he is unafraid of enemies, foreign or domestic.
The military brass in particular look like hypocrites, the elder O’Neill said.
“He is not allowed to talk, yet they are using this big bullhorn to shut him up,” Tom O’Neill said, according to the Daily Mail.
And as to the possibility of terrorist reprisals?
“I say, I’ll paint a big target on my front door and say come and get us,” he said.
