I mean, that thing from the former SGA Vice President was fun and all. But the guy who started SEAL Team Six technically graduated from AUM. And it’s by no means confirmed that one of the war dogs that helped in the raid that night in Abbottabad was trained here.
So for a website that’s yearned for a direct link between Auburn and the justice dealt Osama bin Laden, this is kind of a big deal.
Here it goes…
“War Eagle,” Robert O’Neill said after* shooting and killing Osama bin Laden.
* Six years later (and while being interviewed on an ABBY Award-winning morning radio show out of Auburn that does that sort of thing. But still.
You can listen to Rich and Jeremy’s full interview with O’Neill here. You can buy his book here.

I never cease to be amazed at the transformative power of those to words…WAR EAGLE. Sure he is a Mr. Oneil is a decorated combat veteran who was involved in one of the greatest raids in special ops history, but from the moment he gave the battle cry of Victory; his life would never be the same. He has uttered the words that impact him forever. WAR EAGLE
Great interview men!!
This guy shouldn’t be celebrated and it embrasses me as a two time Auburn grad to hear him being associated with auburn in any way https://theintercept.com/2017/01/10/the-crimes-of-seal-team-6/
sad to see this on TWER 🙁
Please learn to spell correctly if you plan to continue to brag about your two degrees from Auburn. It’s EMBARRASSING.. The Navy Seals do not choose their missions. They follow orders and are extremely good at what they are trained to do which is why they are given the most important missions. I’m proud to hear this man say “War Eagle” and am very greatful that he is on our side.
Y’all see that time Aubie showed up on Cam’s forehead?
BO, I wasn’t taking offense at the mission plans of our military but rather the specific and lawless behavior of many members of these specific teams ON those missions. That extracurricular behavior, like “canoeing” enemy corpses to desecrate them described on the linked report above, is almost always expressly against the wishes of higher level decision-makers who nonetheless tolerate it due to their over-reliance on these teams.
But good call on my iPad-induced fingerpeck typo; that’s definitely the important issue here.
