William McRaven, Who Led Raid That Killed Bin Laden, Resigns From Pentagon Board After Blasting Donald Trump


A truly honorable soldier:

William McRaven gained fame for leading the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, but now the retired four-star admiral had resigned from a Pentagon advisory board after offering sharp criticism of Donald Trump.

McRaven led U.S. Special Operations Command from 2011 to 2014, taking the lead on the Pakistan raid that left the Al-Qaeda leader dead. Though retired from active service, McRaven continued to serve in an advisory role on the Defense Innovation Board, a group of leaders that advised Pentagon officials. As Defense News reported, McRaven is now gone from that board after offering a very public criticism of Donald Trump’s action toward former leaders who criticize him.
