Retired Admiral McRaven voted for BidenWilliam McRaven, the retired Navy admiral who oversaw the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday.

McRaven, who served as commander of U.S. Special Operations Command from 2011 to 2014, wrote that he has already voted for Biden in Texas, where early voting began last week.

McRaven describes himself in the op-ed as “pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, small-government, strong-defense and a national-anthem-standing conservative.”

However, he wrote, “I also believe that black lives matter, that the Dreamers deserve a path to citizenship, that diversity and inclusion are essential to our national success, that education is the great equalizer, that climate change is real and that the First Amendment is the cornerstone of our democracy.”

“We need a president who understands the importance of American leadership, at home and abroad. We need a leader of integrity whose decency and sense of respect reflects the values we expect from our president. We need a president for all Americans, not just half of America,” McRaven wrote.
