Sad thing about all this, is the MILLIONS people has made off of seal team 6, and their past operations. Then one member gets in big trouble for making a few bucks as a consultant for a gaming company
There's a big difference between a soldier deciding policy and the commanders deciding policy.
He knew the rules when he signed up, if he didn't like it he was free to choose another occupation.

In the opinion of his colleagues, he's a sellout
It is what it is.

Re: Man Who Killed Bin Laden Revealed: Rob O'Neill Named As SEAL Team Six Hero


Update:
Navy SEAL Team Six member who shot Osama bin Laden is reportedly under investigation for revealing military secrets
Quote:
  • Robert O'Neill allegedly being probed by Naval Criminal Investigative Service
  • O'Neill came forward as the al-Qaeda leader's killer earlier this year
  • Says he is certain that he - and he alone - killed bin Laden in 2011 raid
  • Was warned not to speak out by top Navy SEAL officers but did it anyway

The Navy SEAL Team Six member who unveiled himself as the man who shot dead Osama bin Laden is reportedly being investigated by military police for leaking secrets.
Robert O'Neill, who came forward as the mystery shooter who killed the al-Qaeda leader during a 2011 raid, allegedly gave away crucial details of the mission and prompted a probe by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS).
He is suspected of leaking classified information, which could lead to criminal charges from the elite federal bureau, according to The Daily Beast.

On its website the NCIS says that it usually only investigates allegations that could lead to a year or more in prison.
O'Neill was repeatedly warned by Naval top brass not to go on air and speak about his participation in the secretive mission - but appeared anyway and spoke at length about his role.
He gave a long, two-part interview to Fox News in November in which he gave his life story up to the mission, then described it in moment-to-moment detail. He had previously been the subject of an anonymous account in Esquire magazine about the mission.

Some have argued that nothing he said - beyond identifying himself - goes beyond leaks about the operation already made by other authorities, including White House politicians.
He told how he shot bin Laden three times in the head after leaping from a helicopter and busting into the terrorist compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
His account, in which he fires three bullets into bin Laden's head and splits his skull, has been disputed by other SEAL sources, who say it is impossible to know who fired the fatal shot.

Another member of the elite Team Six, Matt Bissonnette, has also claimed to be the man who killed him, and wrote a book about his exploits.
Before the revelations, SEAL high command distributed a letter urging current and former officers to stick to their non-disclosure agreements.
Rear Admiral Brian Losey, the commander of the Naval Special Warfare Group, wrote: 'At Naval Special Warfare's core is the SEAL ethos.
'A critical tenant of our ethos is "I do not advertise the nature of my work, nor seek recognition for my actions."
'Violators of our Ethos are neither Temmates in good standing, not Teammates who represent Naval Special Warfare.
'We do not abide willful or selfish disregard for our core values in return for public notoriety and financial gain, which only diminishes otherwise honorable service, courage and sacrifice.
'Our credibility as a premier fighting force is forged in this sacrifice and has been accomplished with honor, as well as humility.'
DailyMail.com has contacted the NCIS for comment.

"Fuck you, I killed Bin Laden!", said the first pig.

"Fuck you, I killed Bin Laden!", said the second pig.

"Fuck you, I watched you kill Bin Laden and sold my story to the media, telling them *I* killed Bin Laden.", said the media-savvy pig.

meh

He knew the investigation was coming and he will be punished in some way. He had to have known this, but since he's Mr Hot-Shot now he probably doesn't care.

Re: Man Who Killed Bin Laden Revealed: Rob O'Neill Named As SEAL Team Six Hero

I really don't see anything he revealed as being classified. He didn't say anything that wasn't already public knowledge, and was released already by people above him. The only thing new was his identity.

If they go after anyone, it should be the guy profiting from his lies.

He is the one that profited, that's why he talked.

It's not up to him to decide what's classified and what's not. If his superiors tell him to shut up in the name of national security it's not up to him to decide.

Re: Man Who Killed Bin Laden Revealed: Rob O'Neill Named As SEAL Team Six Hero

Where did he profit? Another seal wrote a book, and a couple movies were made. I'm not aware of O'Neil having anything to do with either one.

And again, he didn't say anything that wasn't already released by his superiors. I would be against this guy if he did give up sensitive information, but he didn't.

If you have a problem with Navy seal missions being public knowledge you should have a problem with the administration. We would probably never have known anything about this mission or this Seal if the administration didn't release every detail.
Rob O'Neil is an American hero, a normal guy, who ended up being a member of the best tactical force in the world. The Navy should make him their poster soldier.

Matt Bissonette is in trouble, too. He's actually suing his lawyer right now for telling him it was ok to reveal certain details about the UBL raid.

You get paid for doing t.v. interviews and paid to do the publicity for those. He's making a nice chunk of change off this deal.

There are a million reasons as to why missions are classified and I don't have a single issue with them being classified. Especially if those details keep the lives of the men on these teams and their families safe. Not to mention national security.


When you get to tier one status, you know damn well EVERYTHING is classified. He knew this and he decided he was better than everyone else and opened his pie hole. He will be shunned forever.

You think the TV interviews and other news stories were done for free

What part of this is hard to understand? It's not up to him to decide what is classified or sensitive information. He knew this when he signed up.
You can sit there and say it's not sensitive, but it's not up to you either....... He directly disobeyed protocol for personal profit.
