SEAL Who Killed Bin Laden Reacts to Unfolding France Hostage Situations
Former Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill, the man who killed Usama bin Laden, weighed in this morning on the ongoing hostage situations in France on "Fox and Friends."
One situation involves the two main suspects in the Charlie Hebdo terror attack where 12 people were killed in Paris earlier this week. Brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi are currently holed up with a hostage in a printing house in Dammartin-en-Goele, which is a small industrial town 25 miles outside of Paris.
A separate hostage situation is developing at a Kosher grocery store where five people are reportedly being held captive by a man and woman in Paris.
O'Neill shared some tactics that he thinks police are likely using.
"It would probably be easier for a sniper or two to get some shots off there," O'Neill said in reference to the situation at the grocery store. "What's important now is, because it's in a crowded area, is they need to try to disperse people, keep them inside, avoid crowds and keep them calm as they can."
He said that if one of the suspects is inside of the grocery store executing people that police need to get a hostage rescue team in there.
"It doesn't necessarily mean that you start running through the front door as fast as they can," O'Neill added. "But they need to get a foothold in there and they need to get in there and eliminate the threat."
He also shared that if he was handling security he would be considering what's next in both situations.
