Posted on 05/12/2011 4:16:51 PM PDT by panthermom
Members of Navy SEAL team 6, the Special Operations unit responsible for killing Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden in Pakistan last Sunday, have expressed concerns about their safety and the safety of their families now that details of the mission have been made public.
Speaking to Marines at Camp Lejeune Thursday, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said the concerns were expressed to him directly a week ago when he met with members of the unit to congratulate them on their mission. Gates said the SEALs were mainly focused on their families and worried they could be subject to retaliatory attacks.

“True, then also recall the ‘burial at sea’”
This episode was an affront to the crew of the Carl Vinson.
Nothing........NOTHING...........matters to Obambi and his idiotic leftist crew than political power.
Military? Shit........expendable resources, folks.
Slow Joe has never been able to keep his big mouth shut.
At least for now, I assume the families are safe. Al Qaeda knows that to attack the families would weaken their strongest ally before the 2012 elections.
Profile of the Sociopath
This website summarizes some of the common features of descriptions of the behavior of sociopaths.
Glibness and Superficial Charm
Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.
Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.”
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.
Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.
Incapacity for Love
Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.
Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others’ feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.
Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.
Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet “gets by” by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.
Not concerned about wrecking others’ lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.
Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.
Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.
Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.
ROTFL! How true.
Same here. I can’t even find anything funny in the “humor” posts—this is absolutely evil. Even worse, it would not surprise me if, down the line, they next try to indict them for war crimes.
the SAS does ops like this all the time and it never goes public and they are not allowed to tell people they are in the SAS
Maybe the special best units should do this too, Hell the SAS are immune to go to court if they want.
Google scrubbed a post about threats against the SEALs families.
Does the team really want this exposure? Doubt it.
Can you IMAGINE what these men must be thinking???
Betrayal, I imagine.
Another step closer...
A true leader could resolve this easily. Announce that if anyone touches one of our men or their family mecca gets nuked. Have the bombers ready 24/7. Sword of Damocles - very effective. Would love to see biden ride down on the bomb.
Can’t blame them. After all they are each fatwa-ed, and not for killing OBL, but for killing a surgically altered stand in martyr.
Thats why the body was deep sixed into the Arabian Sea even before it was cold.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
A little off topic, but relevant. If we had a less chest thumping administration, the press and thus the terrorists wouldn't, and shouldn't, have a clue about the composition of the operation.
Should be taught to every family member of a SEAL and/or loyal American. For real.
Even IF the guns were lost on a fishing accident.
