New strategy needed in Afghanistan: Osama’s killer

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The US military needs a new strategy in Afghanistaninfo-icon, where peace cannot be won through bomb and bullets, says a soldier who claims killing Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Ladin.

“That’s a difficult question,” Robert J. O’Neill, former Navy SEAL who claims to have killed bin Laden in 2011, told the Boston Herald about the Afghanistan war.

At a veterans’ event in Malden, the ex-SEAL said: “It’s definitely worth trying to defeat the radical ideology we’re up against.”

The 43-year-old Rob O’Neill said he was longer as eager to go to war as he was at 27. “There’s a lot of stuff out there that can’t be solved with bullets and bombs. I hope there’s a better way.”

O’Neill called educationinfo-icon as a key element of the Afghanistan strategy making progress. “It’s definitely worth trying to squash the ideology, but it’s also worth trying to educate people.”

“Fifteen seconds after I shot Osama bin Laden, one of my guys asked if I was OK,” he recalled. “I said, ‘Yeah, what do we do now?”

The SEAL was told he had just killed the worldinfo-icon’s most wanted militant and that his life had changed.
