The legendary U.S. Special Forces Unit that took out Osama bin Laden on Sunday has been receiving a lot of press coverage latelyand for good reason. The bravery of those soldiers, the significance of their mission, and the sheer drama with which it was carried out is right out of a Blockbuster thriller. In an article from The Nation, the U.S. Special Forces are depicted as a class of talented, courageous, elite, and highly dangerous men. Surprisingly, given that its The Nation, the writer plays up the murder, incorporated angle of the story about JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command):
Col. W. Patrick Lang, a retired Special Forces officer with extensive operational experience throughout the Muslim world, described JSOCs forces as sort of like Murder, Incorporated.
He told The Nation: Their business is killing Al Qaeda personnel. Thats their business. Theyre not in the business of converting anybody to our goals or anything like that. Shortly after the operation was made public, retired Gen. Barry McCaffrey called JSOCs operators the most dangerous people on the face of the earth.
Theyre the ace in the hole. If you were a card player, thats your ace that youve got tucked away, said Gen. Hugh Shelton, who was the Chair of the Joint Chiefs on 9/11, in an interview with The Nation. Shelton, who also headed the Special Operations Command during his career, described JSOC as a surgical type of unit, adding if you need someone that can sky dive from thirty miles away, and go down the chimney of the castle, and blow it up from the insidethose are the guys you want to call on. Shelton added, They are the quiet professionals. They do it, and do it well, but they dont brag about it. Someone has to toot their horn for them, because they wont, normally....
I heard most of the “males” down at The Nation all wear dresses and women’s undergarments. I imagine Special Forces guys intimidate them.
Osama aint dead he shaved and has been Rachal Maddow
The Nation has been going downhill since the Civil War/War Between the States/the War of Northern Aggr—since they hired Latreena Vanden Hooters.
Way too many `I march to a different drummer (like all the other Thoreaus) types. But I’d knock boots w/Latreena again if she’d stuff a sock in her ... hey look a squirrel!
You must be thinking of Britt ~ much cuter.
THe Nation has been going downhill since Communist Party organizer Carey McWilliams took it over many decades ago, and then passed it on to communism-coverupper Victor Navasky. Navasky then brought in Katrina (the Latrin) Vanden Heuver (I like the Hooters name).
They have hired a bunch of communists, marxists, socialists and general America haters since the 1960’s or earlier. They are more dangerous in their propaganda operations than any other publication outside of the NYT and WP. Makes the Communist Party newspaper seem like a comic book.
