US Hero to Gabbard: Respect I Had for You Has 'Vanished'

The man who shot Osama bin Laden has lost "respect" for Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, after she called the President Donald Trump-ordered strike of the head of a U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organization an "act of war."

Former Navy SEAL Robert O'Neill, who shot bin Laden in the dead of night during a U.S. covert operation in Pakistan, tweeted:

"Wow, @TulsiGabbard. Any respect I had for you just vanished."

Gabbard has been a vocal opponent of regime-change wars during her time in Congress and as a current Democratic presidential primary candidate. Most recently, she called the drone strike killing of Qassem Soleimani as an "act of war" against Iran, which would have required congressional approval.

"We need to get out of Iraq and Syria now," Gabbard tweeted with the publishing of a Twitter video. "That is the only way that we're going to prevent ourselves from being dragged into this quagmire, deeper and deeper into a war with Iran. #WWIII #TrumpsWar #StandWithTulsi"

O'Neill tweeted a few days earlier a rebuke of those opposed to the Soleimani strike.

"Democrats are now defending terrorists."

Ironically, Trump, Gabbard, and O'Neill all share one stated goal: Get out of the Middle East. And, Sunday, the Iraqi Parliament – albeit on simple majority of pro-Iran Shia bloc – voted for foreign troops to leave Iraq – giving them an out.

O'Neill tweeted a position even Gabbard would agree with:

"The Iraqi Parliament just voted to kick us out. Let's leave. @realDonaldTrump"
