Robert O'Neill: SEAL who shot bin Laden seeks Mark Milley's resignation as Afghans fall from planes
Retired Navy SEAL Robert O'Neill who identified himself as Osama bin Laden's shooter is fuming over the deaths of terrified Afghans falling from USAF jets. Terror-stricken Afghanistan and its residents are reeling under Islamist militant group Taliban's takeover. President Donald Trump had negotiated a deal with the Taliban in February 2020 to withdraw all troops from Afghanistan by May 1, 2021, and the new President Biden announced on April 4 that the full troop withdrawal will be completed by September 11 this year. The US evacuated the Bagram Airfield by July 5, the largest military installation since the 2001 invasion resulting in provincial capitals including Sar-e-Pul, Kunduz, and Taloqan falling to the Taliban.
National capital Kabul was captured by the Taliban on Sunday, August 15 amid news of President Ashraf Ghani fleeing the country resulting in the government's collapse. Rescue operations were ordered by the US and many other countries soon after and Afghan refugees running helter-skelter at the tarmac at the Hamid Karzai International Airport is a crisis that will be remembered by the world for years. They were so desperate to leave the war-torn country that they didn't hold back from holding on to the military jet during takeoff and three people fell to their deaths during their attempt to flee. O'Neill is now asking Army General Mark Milley, the nation's top military officer to resign over the disorganized evacuation efforts.
On one hand, everyone is hailing the pilots who are running rescue operations out of Kabul as heroes, including the pilot of C-17 Globemaster III who carried 640 refugees to Qatar. On the other, Joe Biden is being shamed for the biggest foreign policy crisis of his presidency especially after the repercussions of the Taliban's brutal rule have come to light. Reports of the militant group going door to door to seize girls as young as 12-years-old to marry off to their fighters have emerged and the reverberations are threatening to affect America's reliability globally. Americans are now asking Biden, and the Secretaries of State and Defense to step down from their positions.
"Has this dude?" O'Neill wrote tagging the Joint Staff's official account. He double-downed with, "not yet. just checking." He also took a swipe at Biden tweeting, "This is the worst loss in American history. Our most popular president has vanished. Prove me wrong." In one tweet he wrote, "My friends who died for no reason would be disgusted with this administration." In another he wrote, "Have any of our generals and admirals resigned out of disgrace yet?"
