The man who killed Osama Bin Laden has become increasingly more vocal during the last year. He now warns America not the greatest threat currently facing the nation.
Fox News reported, Robert O’Neill, former member of the elite SEAL Team Six, said in an interview with Fox News that despite growing concerns around a resurgence of radical Islamic terrorism, the U.S. has bigger vulnerabilities closer to home.
O’Neill said 9/11 should serve as a memorial to not only those who were lost in the attacks and following years – as the U.S. engaged in the longest war in American history – but as a reminder of shared American values.
On the Eve of the September 11th attack’s 20 year anniversary, the man who would eventually kill the jab responsible expressed his disdain for the Taliban.
He explained that they are evil, and that they lie. They rule by fear, and are not businesslike at all as the current presidential administration claims in the United States.
O’Neil warned of radical Islamic extremism re-surging, and also expressed concern over the growing political divide in America.
“My biggest concern is the division in this country, “We can disagree with each other but we’re on the same team when it all comes down to it.” He said.
He noted the the directed towards law enforcement officers in the past several years. “Those are the good guys.” He said.
O’Neil recounted the heroic men and women who risked their lives to save others on 9/11 2001.
“There were people running out of the towers to live, and there were policemen and firemen running up to die. And we have those people there and it’s very, very important to realize that.”
He went on, “Those are the good guys and they’re out there, when the demons come, someone’s going to be there to defend you and America should realize that.”
Yet a large portion of America is still on board with the idea of defunding police departments, or replacing them with house call social workers.
America needs to learn to love, as it once did. America must learn to repair the divide that continues to grow each day.
