One of America’s deadliest snipers, Sgt. Nick Irving, said Americans have forgotten 9/11 and reduced the attacks to a bumper sticker slogan.

Irving was discussing President Donald Trump’s appointment of Gina Haspel to head the CIA, on “Fox & Friends” Thursday, and said people shouldn’t complain about her involvement in enhanced interrogations.

“Like you said earlier, 9/11, no one complained about how we got the job done back then,” Irving said. “And, you know, watching individuals and innocent moms and dads jump from those towers it’s kind of hard to forget. So what we do to get the job done is how we get it done.”


Irving believes the country needs to remember the 9/11 attacks and get back to letting the government do it’s job.

“I think we have [forgotten],” he continued. “I think it’s become somewhat bumper sticker deep. It only goes that far. So I think we need to kind of get back on track and let the guys, you know, do their job.”

Irving praised Trump’s “unconventional” style and encouraged him to stick with it.

“Unconventional warfare,” Irving concluded. “You know, I think one of sayings in my community, our special operations community, is we do bad things to bad people. And we have not deterred from that. We’re really good at what we do.”
