In fact, if given the green light, O’Neill has stated that rescuing Americans trapped in the country by Taliban terrorists would only require him and a small force.
During an appearance on “Primetime,” host Will Cain questioned the former SEAL about the failure of American political and military leadership to evacuate Americans currently held hostage by Taliban terrorists.
“Look, I don’t want to be in charge, but if I was would I want to get the Americans? Cool. Give me nine guys, I’m gonna walk through the streets and I’m gonna kill everyone I see, and I’m gonna grab the Americans,” said O’Neill.
The former soldier said the situation on the ground is much more simple than is being portrayed.
“It is not difficult. But we have these people who are in charge that are a disgrace. I am amazed that there hasn’t been at least 30 generals and admirals that haven’t resigned or been fired today,” he told Cain. “But we won’t because we have a commander-in-chief that was put there through whatever happened at four in the morning on election night.”
“This is nonsense. It’s insulting,” he said.
O’Neill added he is a big believer in keeping things “simple.”
“I’m a big believer in the acronym KISS: Keep it simple, stupid. And I was talking to another SEAL Team Six operator with whom I served for 20 years,” he stated. “I’m just going to call him Tiny. And Tiny told me the response: ‘Here’s how you get the Americans out. Tiny smash with hammer. And that’s it.’”
Every veteran he’s spoken with about the Afghan crisis has described their feelings as “gross,” according to O’Neill.
“That’s how you should feel. You should feel gross,” he said. “We don’t ask the Taliban permission. You know what we do? We kick their a**, that’s it.”
