Rob O’Neill, The Man Who Killed Osama Bin Laden, Joins Fox News

Robert O'Neill

Rob O’Neill, the SEAL Team Six member who is said to have fired the shots that killed Osama bin Laden, has signed on as a contributor for the Fox News Channel, the network announced in a statement Thursday.

O’Neill “will offer military expertise and analysis across various daytime and primetime programs,” Fox News said in a press release. Fox News president and CEO Roger Ailes praised O’Neill’s service:

Rob O’Neill is an American hero who dedicated his life to serving our country and protecting our freedoms. It’s incredibly rare to have someone in a television contributor role with his leadership experience and expertise at the fighting unit level. His military insight will be a major asset to the network and we are honored to have him.

Fox News featured O’Neill extensively in a documentary last November entitled, The Man Who Killed Usama Bin Laden. During the series, O’Neill told reporter Peter Doocy he and his fellow Navy SEALs believed going to Abbottabad to take out bin Laden in 2011 was a suicide mission.

The more we trained on it, the more we realized this is gonna be a one-way mission. We’re gonna go and we’re not gonna come back. We’re going to die when the house blows up, we’re going to die when he blows up, or we’re going to be there too long, we get arrested by the Pakistanis, and we’re going to spend the rest of our lives in a Pakistan prison.

The Daily Mail pointed out the newest member of the Fox News team has received criticism from officials and other Navy SEALs for revealing himself as the bin Laden killer.

Still, O’Neill is a highly decorated officer, as his biography shows. He earned two Silver Stars, four Bronze Stars with Valor, a Joint Service Commendation Medal with Valor, three Presidential Unit citations, and two Navy/Marine Corps Commendations with Valor — decorated a total of 52 times. He retired from the Navy in 2012.

WATCH: What The Man Who Killed Bin Laden Just Said About NCIS Probe Of Him May Surprise You

O'Neill Osama

Former Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill went public in November of last year with his account of the 2011 raid that ended in the death of Osama bin Laden and how he, O’Neill, killed the world’s most wanted man with three shots to the face.

Then, just before Christmas 2014, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) announced that it had opened a probe into whether O’Neill may have leaked official secrets — classified information — in telling his story.

Appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show Monday night, Rob O’Neill spoke out about the investigation. One surprising thing the former SEAL revealed was that he had not yet been contacted by NCIS.

Krauthammer’s Recent Blasting Of Obama Is By Far His Best

Charles Krauthammer

Charles Krauthammer, a practiced but retired psychiatrist, took the gloves off and blasted Obama repeatedly.

First, he said that psychiatrists, doctors, and even global warming folks tend to use their intelligence to “bludgeon” people with their authority.

“As a layman… Obama is clearly a narcissist in the non-scientific use of the word,” Krauthammer began.

“He’s extremely self-involved. He sees himself in very world historical terms, which means: A.) because he’s an amateur, he doesn’t know very much, and B.) because he’s a narcissist, he doesn’t listen.”

Krauthammer says you can look at the number of times Obama references himself during his speeches to see his narcissism on display.

“Remember when he announced the killing of Bin Laden? That speech had 29 references to I – ‘on my command,’ ‘I ordered,’ ‘as commander-in-chief,’ ‘ I was then told,’ ‘I this.’ You’d think he’d pulled the trigger out there in Abbottabad,” Krauthammer said.

“You know, this is a guy, you look at every one of his speeches, even the way he introduces high officials – ‘I’d like to introduce my secretary of State.’ He once referred to ‘my intelligence community.’ And in one speech, I no longer remember it, ‘my military.’ For God’s sake, he talks like the emperor, Napoleon.”

An Unbearable And Choking Hell: The Loss Of Our Freedoms In The Wake Of 9/11

“I tell you, freedom and human rights in America are doomed. The U.S. government will lead the American people in — and the West in general — into an unbearable hell and a choking life.”—Osama bin Laden (October 2001), as reported by CNN

What a strange and harrowing road we’ve walked since September 11, 2001, littered with the debris of our once-vaunted liberties. We have gone from a nation that took great pride in being a model of a representative democracy to being a model of how to persuade a freedom-loving people to march in lockstep with a police state.

What began with the passage of the USA Patriot Act in October 2001 has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption, and abuse. Since then, we have been terrorized, traumatized, and tricked into a semi-permanent state of compliance. The bogeyman’s names and faces change over time—Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, and now ISIS—but the end result remains the same: our unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security.

Ironically, just a short week after the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we find ourselves commemorating the 227th anniversary of the ratification of our Constitution. Yet while there is much to mourn about the loss of our freedoms in the years since 9/11, there has been little to celebrate.

The Constitution has been steadily chipped away at, undermined, eroded, whittled down, and generally discarded to such an extent that what we are left with today is but a shadow of the robust document adopted more than two centuries ago. Most of the damage has been inflicted upon the Bill of Rights—the first ten amendments to the Constitution—which historically served as the bulwark from government abuse.

Set against a backdrop of government surveillance, militarized police, SWAT team raids, asset forfeiture, eminent domain, overcriminalization, armed surveillance drones, whole body scanners, stop and frisk searches, roving VIPR raids, and the like—all sanctioned by Congress, the White House, and the courts—a recitation of the Bill of Rights would understandably sound more like a eulogy to freedoms lost than an affirmation of rights we truly possess.

As I make clear in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, the Constitution has been on life support for some time now. We can pretend that the Constitution, which was written to hold the government accountable, is still our governing document. However, the reality we must come to terms with is that in the America we live in today, the government does whatever it wants, freedom be damned.

Consider the state of our freedoms, and judge for yourself whether this Constitution Day should be a day of mourning, celebration or a robust call to action:

The First Amendment is supposed to protect the freedom to speak your mind and protest in peace without being bridled by the government. It also protects the freedom of the media, as well as the right to worship and pray without interference. In other words, Americans should not be silenced by the government. Yet despite the clear protections found in the First Amendment, the freedoms described therein are under constant assault.

Video: Father Of Slain SEAL Team 6 Sailor Speaks Out, Gets Spied On By NSA





“Obama murdered my son.”

For two and a half years, the families of the members of SEAL Team Six – The SEAL Team that killed Osama Bin Laden – have been searching for answers. They want to know why their sons were put aboard a decrepit CH-47 helicopter and flown into a hot LZ with no support whatsoever, they want to know why the government lied about the circumstances of the deaths of the SEALS, and they want to know who is responsible for the deaths of their sons.

In three weeks, they may get a few answers when Congress opens an investigation into the facts surrounding the downing of Extortion 17 in Afghanistan’s Tangi Valley on August 6th 2011.

In this exclusive TTiV interview, Charles Strange, father of Michael Strange (one of the 22 Navy SEALS aboard the ill-fated flight), tells viewers of the evidence he has obtained from government sources that lay open the lies surrounding his son’s death that have been told by the military, and how a Muslim Imam was brought in by the military to say a prayer over the bodies of the SEALS, even though none of them were Muslim (a “prayer” that was intended to damn the SEALS to Hell.) If none of the SEALS were Muslim, why was a Muslim prayer spoken over their bodies, a prayer designed to insult the memory of these heroes if not to intentionally rub salt into a fresh wound?

Charles’ wife Mary also recounts how the government has bugged their home, their computers, and telephones. She says that they have been receiving strange text messages, and that cameras have been installed in their home–real-time photographs being sent to her computer screen as she worked.

That is absolutely terrifying. It was also the basis of a lawsuit that the Stranges, through their attorney Larry Klayman, recently won against the NSA. Mary Strange talks about that as well.

Once the conversation turned to the case against the NSA and classified information concerning Michael’s death, the servers at the Guerilla Media Network–which hosts TTiVLIVE!–came under a DDoS attack, and the interview had to be terminated. For now.

The Truth Is Viral will continue to follow the Congressional inquiries about Extortion 17 as well as the Stranges’ case against the NSA. It is the official editorial position of The Truth Is Viral that installing cameras in the homes of grieving families in order to intimidate them into being silent is beyond reprehensible, and those responsible must be held to account.
