Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill, who fired the shots that killed Osama Bin Laden, has written a book detailing what happened on the night of that historic raid. Warning for the squeamish: the link describes the kill shot in graphic detail. The full story also provides further proof, if any were needed, of the unbelievable courage, selflessness, humility and devotion to country and mission of America’s finest.

One detail that I believe should be shouted from the rooftops: according to O’Neill, when Bin Laden was killed, he was standing behind a woman, presumably one of his wives, with his hands on her shoulders. It didn’t help: a Navy SEAL knows how to aim a gun precisely. But just in case you missed the important part, let me repeat and emphasize it: the great “Lion of the Desert,” the “Jihadist Sheik,” Osama Bin Laden, died while trying to shield himself by cowering behind a woman.

Once again over the weekend, North Korea tested another missile, and once again, it was a humiliating failure that went straight into the sea. Unless Kim Jong-Un is trying to start a war with Aquaman, that’s probably not what he was shooting for. Naturally, President Trump was standing ready on Twitter to respond to the missile flop with some world class trolling.

It’s easy to mock the wide gap between Kim’s grandiose threats and boasts and his failure to launch even a small missile. But it’s a threat that has to be taken seriously. If North Korea keeps defying the world by test-firing missiles, eventually, they're going to figure out how to hit something other than Charlie the Tuna. If you let a child play with fireworks long enough, someone’s going to get hurt.

As I visit Israel for the umpteenth time, I’m saddened today at what I’ve just heard from Benjamin Netanyahu, in an exclusive interview with Sean Hannity, about the nature of terrorist attacks here. At the same time, I thank them both for bringing to light information about the shadowy sources of funding for terrorism in Israel and the evolving strategy for terrorist attacks. Most mainstream reporters are straining their necks trying to look the other way.

As you may know, Israel has opened its arms to Palestinians who need cancer treatment. But one aspect of this story hardly rates media attention: this humanitarian effort to promote peace between Arabs and Jews has been exploited by Hamas, who on at least one occasion have taken the opportunity to use a cancer patient to smuggle explosives into Israel inside tubes labeled “medical materials.” They’ve also used cancer patients to smuggle money and gold to their operatives in Sumeria and Judea.

As for funding, Netanyahu explains that hundreds of millions of dollars are funneled by the Palestinian Authority to the families of Palestinian inmates in Israeli prisons. And how do they decide the amounts to be paid? “The more you kill, the more you get,” Netanyahu says.

He’s spot-on when he says there’s “selective” reporting going on when it comes to Israel. But for a clear-eyed look at what’s actually going on there, just listen to his personal account.
