Hundreds gathered at Tannery Row in Buford on Saturday to see former U.S. Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill, the killer of terror mastermind Osama bin Laden, preside over a charity poker tournament. In an exclusive InsiderAdvantage interview before the event, O’Neill said after his team stormed bin Laden’s Pakistan hideout and when he rushed up a staircase to a bedroom “there was instant recognition.” He said bin Laden “wasn’t surrendering and I thought he was wearing a suicide vest.” So the highly-decorated commando immediately shot him twice in the head at close-range.

O’Neill, who joined the Navy in 1996 and underwent airborne training at Fort Benning, says reaction after he went public with his story “is positive– especially from families who lost loved ones on 9/11” when our nation was attacked by bin Laden’s Islamic terrorists. “It helps bring some closure.” (A complete O’Neill interview will appear in a future issue of one or both of our publications, James magazine and The Southern Political Report.)

Proceeds from the Buford benefit go to a non-profit he co-founded, Your Grateful Nation, which helps U.S. Special Forces veterans find work and assists their families.
