Anyone who knows anything about a U.S. Navy SEAL knows these highly trained warriors don’t know the meaning of fear.
Robert O’Neill, the former member of elite SEAL Team Six who killed terrorist mastermind Osama Bin Laden, responded this week to a British citizen marking him for death by making it clear he’s ready for anything.
“I’ve been ready for this since we killed Osama bin Laden,” he said Tuesday in an appearance on Fox News. “I know how to defend myself.”
Never has a truer statement been uttered.
Sally Jones, a Muslim convert and Islamic State supporter, pointed to O’Neill as the “number one target” on social media, and posted his home address along with the instructions to “hunt down and kill” him.
His identity is known because O’Neill publicly acknowledged that he shot and killed bin Laden — he came forward to give the families of 9/11 victims closure.
The former SEAL assured Fox News host Sean Hannity that officials were taking measure to help ensure his safety, but said this should serve as a wake-up call for members of the military and law enforcement that they all are also targets.
“A lot of times when there’s a bomb threat, there’s not a bomb,” O’Neill cautioned. “But it’s the ones you don’t see. So, everyone has to become more vigilant.”
When asked what he thought of current events in the Middle east, O’Neill offered a harrowing assessment.
“Right now, as a nation that’s used to a lot of political correctness, we are becoming a weak nation,” he said.
