Former SEAL Who Says He Shot Bin Laden Appears To Muse About Insurrection
Oh, how have times changed.
In May 2011, Robert O'Neill was one of the Navy SEALs responsible for hunting Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan. O'Neill later claimed to be the man who actually killed the terrorist leader.
But on Thursday, the former SEAL commented on the Biden government's withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan with a tweet suggesting that he is jealous of how the Taliban were able to quickly recapture the country.
Then he shockingly suggested that he wouldn't mind doing the same in the US.
The tweet was one of several in which O'Neill criticized President Joe Biden and the way his administration handled the withdrawal.
HuffPost reached out to O'Neill for a comment on the fiery tweet but didn't get an immediate response.
However, many Twitter users pointed out that his comments went beyond expressing political opinion and apparently fantasized about another violent uprising in the United States.
O'Neill's life has taken some strange turns since 2011.
He came forward first, claiming to be the specific soldier who killed bin Laden in 2014 - which sparked controversy among at least some of the 24 Navy SEALs who carried out the raid as they were all bound to secrecy, CBS News reported.
In 2015, O'Neill brought the notoriety to a contributor gig on Fox News. In 2019 he tried to start a stand-up comedy career.
Last August, he was banned by Delta Air Lines for not wearing a mask on a flight, and in October he criticized then-President Donald Trump for promoting a false conspiracy theory that the SEALs actually killed a bin Laden doppelganger had.
