William McRaven says he backs the Democratic presidential candidate in an op-ed published Monday. He did not mention Donald Trump by name but has been a critic in the past. McRaven described himself as ‘pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, small-government, strong-defense and a national-anthem-standing conservative’. But he wrote: ‘I also believe that black lives matter, Dreamers deserve a path to citizenship, that diversity and inclusion are essential to our national success’. McRaven was head of the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command in 2011 when a team of Navy SEALs killed bin Laden, the al-Qaida leader, in Pakistan. He also led the rescue of Richard Phillips, a ship captain captured by pirates.
