Rob O’Neill, the Navy SEAL who killed Bin Laden, remembers his day on 9-11 and worries about American unity.
FNC: “As America reaches 20 years since the 9/11 attacks, the former Navy SEAL credited with killing Usama bin Laden warned of the greatest threat now facing the U.S.
Robert O’Neill, a 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.”
It’s very early on September 11th, 2021. Your kids are asleep. Get up and go look at them. Kiss and love your wife. Remember those who can’t do this. Never Forget.

“My biggest concern is the division in this country,” O’Neill said. “Most people are good to each other. But the anger and the division gets the ratings, and that’s what people hear. A lot of people know if they keep people divided, they can stay in power, and it’s wrong. We can disagree with each other but we’re on the same team when it all comes down to it,” he added.
O’Neill remembers his day on 9-11. “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. 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.”
His SEAL team was watching events unfold. “That was as close as we ever thought we’d get to combat because there wasn’t war on the horizon. We were looking at it, at the North Tower and guys were saying, ‘You know, a small plane? That’s a huge building, that’s a really big hole, and that’s a clear day. This is weird.’ And we were all talking about it with some other SEALS and some intelligence people. And then the second plane hit the south tower and that’s when we all knew immediately – this is an attack.”
“People do need to realize that, you know, as opposed to yelling at each other on social media – there’s an enemy out there that wants to kill all of us. And it doesn’t matter, really doesn’t matter, what you look like – it’s your ideology,” he said. “You don’t believe what they think you should believe and they’re going to kill you…One of their sayings is, ‘The Americans have the clock, but we have the time…They’re going to adapt.” So must we.
