Tweet By Navy SEAL Who Killed Bin Laden Sets the Internet Ablaze


He’s known as one of the toughest guys on the planet.

Robert O’Neill, the former U.S. Navy SEAL who killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, has set the Internet ablaze.

On the day after the 20th anniversary of September 11th, O’Neill posted a tweet on Twitter that went viral.

“20 years after 9/11. The Taliban controls Afghanistan. The guy who killed bin Laden is on a no-fly list,” he wrote.

It received over 50,000 likes and more than 12,000 retweets.

Here’s the tweet:

In August, O’Neill said that he was banned from Delta Air Lines for not wearing a mask as mandated.

O’Neill took a selfie of himself on a flight with a passenger and a flight attendant in the background wearing masks with the caption, “I’m not a p***y.”

“I just got banned from [Delta] for posting a picture. Wow,” O’Neill wrote to social media a few days later.

A spokesman for Delta confirmed the ban.

“Part of every customer’s commitment prior to traveling on Delta is the requirement to acknowledge our updated travel policies, which includes wearing a mask,” Delta said.

O’Neill has aso been on the news lately calling for the impeachment of Joe Biden over Afghanistan.

Biden’s disastrous withdrawal of U.S. troops in Afghanistan led to the deaths of 13 U.S. service members. Biden also abandoned between 100 and 200 American citizens as he surrendered to the Taliban.

O’Neill said, “Look, I don’t want to be in charge, but if I was, oh, I want to get the Americans? Cool. Give me nine guys.”

He continued, “I’m going to walk through the streets and I’m going to kill everyone I see and I’m gonna grab the Americans. It is not difficult. But we have these people who are in charge that are a disgrace.”

“I’m amazed that there hasn’t been at least 30 generals and admirals that haven’t resigned or been fired today,” he added.

“This is nonsense. It’s insulting,” O’Neill said.

“Every veteran, Marine, Airman, and Navy SEAL, Coast Guardsmen, everyone I’ve talked to today, all they tell me is they feel gross. And that’s how you should feel, you should feel gross. We don’t ask the Taliban permission. You know what we do? We kick their ass. That’s it.”

“I’m very, very angry because over 400 combat missions in so many different fields of combat, I have never once lost a fight. My team has never lost a fight. I don’t know any Marine who’s lost a fight, and that includes the Taliban,” he continued.

More from Daily Wire:

According to its website, Delta requires masks for both employees and customers. “Delta customers and employees are required to wear a face mask, or appropriate cloth face covering over their nose and mouth throughout their travel, aligning with best practice guidelines from the CDC,” their COVID-19 FAQ reads in part.

O’Neill’s tweet drew scorn from the mainstream media, including from Dan Saltzstein, a New York Times deputy editor, who wrote, “I don’t know this guy but: counterpoint, you might just be because you’re not willing to sacrifice and be a little uncomfortable for your fellow humans (including that marine behind you)!”

Saltzstein later deleted his tweet and honored O’Neill’s heroism and sacrifice for his country, but maintained his criticism.

“I deleted a previous version of this tweet because I broke my own rule about name-calling. So let me try again: I honor O’Neill for his sacrifices to his country and his heroism. It’s sad that he can’t extend the same for the safety of his fellow passengers,” he wrote.
