Rob O’Neill: Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden unmasked for first time

Rob O’Neill, 38, undertook more than 400 combat missions and was decorated 52 times in a 16-year career as a member of SEAL Team Six. His father Tom O’Neill said: “People are asking if we are worried that ISIS will come and get us because Rob is going public. I say I’ll paint a big target on my front door and say come and get us.”

O’Neill was personally congratulated by President Obama for killing bin Laden at close range with three shots to his forehead during the raid on a compound Abbottabad, in Pakistan, on 2 May 2011. Rob O’Neill is set to disclose details of the mission in a two-part interview
In total he was deployed on more than a dozen tours of duty in active combat, in four different warzones, including Iraq and Afghanistan.

He is one of the most distinguished members ever of the elite force – but now faces being frozen out for speaking publicly of his missions. O’Neill has agreed to an exclusive two-part Fox interview later this month.
