The Navy SEAL who killed Osama Bin Laden isn’t too happy with Hillary Clinton, and he has a message she’s not going to be too happy to hear.
Rob O’Neil was one of an elite group of Special Operations soldiers to raid the compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan and he took the shot the killed the world’s most-wanted terrorist back in 2011. He and his brothers-in-arms are true heroes, Hillary Clinton is not, and he wants her to stop using their story to make money for herself.

“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.”
O’Neil has never met Hillary, who notably didn’t attend the ceremony to honor him and his fellow SEALs for their bravery during the raid. However, like many of us, he read the leaked emails that revealed Hillary recalled parts of the raid during a speech to a Toronto business group back in 2013.
Not only did she use the raid to make a profit for herself, but it’s also been revealed that she violated national security during the speech by revealing our surveillance tactics. Hillary also speaks of the raid and the part she plays as she campaigns around the nation trying to score points with voters.
O’Neil has an issue with that.
“We didn’t go for someone to win an office,” O’Neill said as he explained the reason he told his story was to help the victims of 9/11.
“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.”
Good point. But that’s the difference between a hero like O’Neil and a has-been like Hillary – his service is truly selfless, hers is all about herself.
