Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden scolds Hillary for using the mission to line her pockets

The Navy SEAL who ended Osama bin Laden’s life is tired of Hillary Clinton lining her pockets by recounting the mission in paid speeches.

Robert O’Neill said he has never met the former secretary of state who noticeably did not attend a ceremony to thank the SEALs for their service after the 2011 raid. O’Neill blasted Clinton for profiting from sharing her recollections about the mission and revealing sensitive information.

“She’s taking some credit and she’s raising money because of it,” he said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday. “I don’t want to take away from the part she had, but we didn’t kill Osama bin Laden because of Hillary Clinton.”

WikiLeaks released emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta that revealed Clinton recalling the bin Laden raid in a speech to a Toronto business group in 2013. As she made a profit from the paid speeches, Clinton also apparently violated national security by sharing details of the mission.

The Democratic presidential nominee regularly brings up the part she played in the mission as she campaigns around the country.

“We didn’t go for someone to win an office,” O’Neill told “Fox & Friends,” explaining that he came forward with his story in order to help 9/11 families find closure.

“We went for the secretary that jumped out of the 90th floor of the Trade Towers on a Tuesday morning. We went for the first responders that went into the Pentagon,” he said.

“As opposed to trying to raise capital for a campaign or get elected based on her national security because of the bin Laden raid,” O’Neill continued, “I would much rather see her…mention why we did it, or the pilots that brought us there or the analysts that found him.”
