Butte’s O’Neill Credits Waterboarding for Bin Laden Raid
Rob O'Neill, the Navy SEAL from Butte, Montana who killed Osama bin Laden, credits waterboarding for leading to the raid that took out the terror mastermind.
The UK Daily Mail featured O'Neill's tweet, and added this about Haspel's confirmation hearing:
If confirmed, she said she would not permit the CIA to restart the kind of harsh detention and interrogation program the spy agency ran at black sites after 9/11 and tainted American's image worldwide.
Trump has said he supports subjecting terror suspects to harsh interrogation tactics like waterboarding, which simulates drowning, and a 'hell of a lot worse'.
