There Goes the Neighborhood

The Daily Mail has published a piece that once again names Rob O’Neill — who was also involved in missions that inspired Captain Phillips and Zero Dark Thirtyas the Seal Team Six member that killed Osama bin Laden. In an interview, O’Neill’s father said he’s not worried about the publicity: “People are asking if we are worried that ISIS will come and get us because Rob is going public. I say I’ll paint a big target on my front door and say come and get us.” (In my neighborhood, the homeowners association gets mad if someone wants have chickens in their backyard.) I love how the Mail’s Martin Gould refers to “last year’s Esquire magazine interview — by Sharon Stone’s ex-husband Phil Bronstein.” I think he means former war correspondent and Pulitzer prize finalist and Exec Chair of the Center for Investigative Reporting Chair Phil Bronstein who apparently beat him to this “exclusive” by about a year.
