Robert O’Neill, the former Navy SEAL who claims he killed Osama bin Laden, said in a Fox News interview that he and other members of the team believed they would die in the 2011 raid on the terrorist leader’s compound. O’Neill, a former member of the elite SEAL Team 6, said that as team members trained, they figured “we’re going to die” or perhaps be captured. “The more we trained on it, the more we realized… this is going to be a one-way mission,” O’Neill told Fox News in the first of a two-part interview Tuesday. He said that although the team initially received scant information about the operation, members figured out the target on their own. “A few of us were talking a couple days later about this person, this person why would they be there. … It’s bin Laden. … They found him. … We’re going to go get him.” He said the soldiers felt the mission would be worth sacrificing their own lives. He told Fox News he believes he is the last person bin Laden ever saw. Part two of the interview airs at 10 p.m. ET Wednesday.
