The former Navy SEAL who shot dead Osama bin Laden hit out at the QAnon conspiracy theory pushed by President Donald Trump that claims Biden had SEAL Team Six killed after the raid.
Robert O'Neill, 44, appeared with Chris Cuomo on CNN on Wednesday night to voice his disgust that the 'highest-ranking person in the country' would be 'trampling on the graves of some of the best heroes' by claiming the team had not killed Bin Laden.
The online theory has suggested that O'Neill only killed a body double of bin Laden in the 2011 raid and that the Obama and Biden administration were implicated in the killing of the mission's team to cover it up.
It also claims that bin Laden is still alive.

The former Navy SEAL who shot dead Osama bin Laden, Robert O'Neill, hit out at the QAnon theory that claims the terrorist leader is still alive in an interview on CNN Wednesday
Trump retweeted the conspiracy theory this week, angering O'Neill

The idea was formed by QAnon, the far-right conspiracy theory centered on the baseless belief that Trump is secretly fighting enemies in the 'deep state' and a child sex trafficking ring run by satanic pedophiles and cannibals.
Yet this week, the idea became more mainstream as Trump himself retweeted posts and a video promoting the conspiracy about bin Laden's death.
O'Neill, who is vocal about his conservative leanings, blasted the president as Cuomo questioned him on how it felt to see the rumors circulating, stating that this was 'bigger than a retweet'.
'I want to say that every man is alive [who was on that mission],' he told Cuomo, pushing back against suggestions the team had made a mistake with bin Laden's DNA and that they hand flown the body of the double into the mountains to hide the mistake.
He also laughed off claims that Hillary Clinton had ordered a missile to strike down SEAL team Six when the mistake was realized.
'We went in there, we kissed our kids goodbye, and we were expecting death but we were willing to do it because of what had happened on 9/11,' he said.
'To see this on the internet now is due to politics and its an insult to the real people.
'It's a shame we've gotten there because of politics,' he added.
He said that SEAL Team Six had taken many pictures from the night of the raid with bin Laden's body and that they had waited until they were absolutely certain it was him following the DNA test.
'This is comical, if you know the truth, then you are fine,' he added. 'If there is a time to release the photos, it is now.
'I've been getting texts from other guys on the mission saying, "I didn't know we were dead, did you? What did you do in there?"'

Cuomo asked O'Neill about his politics, stating that he knows he is 'not a Biden fan' but asking how it felt for Trump to be the person sharing the theories.
'It's one thing for a wacko to be a conspiracy theorist and to claim this but to be retweeted by the highest-ranking person in the country,' O'Neill said of his disappointment.
'Biden or Trump, I'm an American.'
