Navy SEAL Who Killed Bin Laden Has Message for 'Scumbag' Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi
Robert O’Neill slams dead ISIS leader and 'leaker' Adam Schiff
The heroic Navy SEAL, who killed 9/11 mastermind Osama Bin Laden in 2011, has mocked the newly deceased former leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi after he was killed in a raid by US forces over the weekend.
Robert O’Neill had a message for dead Islamic State terrorist al-Baghdadi, saying, “Hey scumbag, tell bin Laden I said what’s up:”

O'Neill tweeted the message on Sunday after President Donald Trump shared news of a successful U.S. operation in Syria that led to Baghdadi's death.
Trump revealed some details of the operation in Syria on Sunday morning, including that al-Baghdadi attempted to flee but ended up cornered in a tunnel.
The terror leader reportedly used a suicide vest to kill himself, taking the lives of several children he was using as a shield during the blast.
When asked whether he informed Congress of the operation ahead of time, Trump said he told some lawmakers but did not disclose the plans to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi or House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff.
"Others are being notified now as I speak.
"We were going to notify them last night, but we decided not to do that because Washington leaks like I've never seen before.
"There's nothing — there's no country in the world that leaks like we do, and Washington is a leaking machine."
O'Neill, 43, known for his often outspoken presence on social media, also slammed Schiff and suggested that he was not informed of the operation due to a lack of trustworthiness, which Trump confirmed on Monday morning by calling Schiff "the biggest leaker in Washington."
"If you’re the House Intel Chairman and are not told about the raid to kill the world’s #1 terrorist ... you might be a leaker," O'Neill said on Sunday afternoon.

O'Neill has previously criticized Democratic lawmakers on Twitter for what he perceives to be lopsided priorities.
In June, the former SEAL targeted California Rep. Eric Swalwell for a tweet that promoted his advocacy for illegal immigrant families that said, "To immigrant families: We see you, we are here for you and we will not stop fighting for you. Families belong together. Period."
"You spelled 'Homeless Veterans' wrong," O'Neill fired back.

O'Neill retired as a Navy SEAL in 2012 after 16 years of service and currently works as a public speaker and frequent guest on Fox News.
