Navy SEALs Want to Protect Their Identity Following OBL Raid
Fox News ^ | 5/12/2011 | Justin Fishel

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.

"Frankly, a week ago Sunday in the Situation Room we all agreed that we would not release any operational details from the effort to take out bin Laden. That all fell apart on Monday, the next day."

Rather than keeping the details secret, intelligence officials and senior administration officials briefed members of the press

I have never been so terrified of my government! This adminstration is EVIL!!!

We shouldn’t even know what base their from.

It should have been reported as an operation conducted by American special forces and left at that.

In my personal opinion, this is a prime case of political concerns over-riding military operational secrecy, Obama needed, badly needed a foreign victory and this was it. Obama will claim victory and if the peons suffer, it is for the greater glory!

True, then also recall the 'burial at sea', was performed by Muslim seamen which incorporated "Loud Recitation of the Four Takbirs" (allahu akbar) four times over Bin Laden's "washed" body on the USS Carl Vinson (the same war cry screamed when our hijacked passenger jets hit the WTC, the Pentagon, and Shanksville). Given these Muslim seamen's loyalty to Islam, I question their intent and integrity should the identities of Team 6 Seals been compromised during transfer of OBL's body to the USS Carl Vinson.

What else can we expect from the Keystone Kop-in-Chief and the jackasses that surround him?

Do you remember when the Navy Missile Cruiser accidentally shot down an Iranian Air Liner?

The Muzzies tried to murder the Captain’s wife by placing a bomb under her vehicle. Fortunately the bomb failed to explode.

Not defending Obama (NEVER!) - he is clearly using this for political gain - but SEAL and DF operate out of a couple of bases, and the bad guys already know about them.

I continue to believe that Obamao will eventually throw the SEALs under the bus to appease his international critics. Of course, he’ll maintain his BMOC standing, but the SEALs will be sacrificed to do it.

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.”

Pathological Lying
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.

Shallow Emotions
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.

Irresponsibility/Unreliability
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.

Maybe the special best units should do this too, Hell the SAS are immune to go to court if they want.

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.

It's not hard to find out where Team Six is homeported.

Terrorists can go there and look for Iconic stickers in car windows...tee shirts etc.

You would be able to find a family member of the team.

It shows disgusting disregard for these fine patriots to even have identified any unit associated with this operation.

Now, Team Six will have to change homeport, brief all family member on not displaying ANYTHING associated with UDT...even in their own homes.

Essentially, they all have to go underground and live on base at all times.

How do you think that's going to affect morale? There will be dropouts or divorces by the dozens in all SpecOps units.

This was, at least, criminal negligence on the part of the White House.

I was on another site where a person posted that a family member was a SEAL, not T6. Immediately after the announcement, it was ordered to remove ALL bumper stickers and to not wear any clothes or display any paraphernalia that would signify SEALs. Sounds legit to me.

But the loser doesn’t care. He wants to be the hero. Obama should have never involved the press about even his visiting with them. This administration and Obama are such freaking losers with no respect for our military. Have you all seen the Obama the Navy Seal Action Figure? It’s all such cr@p.

I served with several Muslim sailors, and while it always made me wonder...there's no doubt they served honorably. No doubt.

That's not to say things haven't changed or that there might now be moles in the Navy...but they'd have to be like James Bond.

When you live and work in the close quarters of a ship, you get to know who's in the next rack.

The Navy should seriously consider taking this SEAL team, and debriefing them to a writer, who is writing an authorized account of the mission from those who participated in it.

Then, when the SEALs are released from their classification obligation for the mission, the book will be published, for two purposes.

1) As a recruiting advertisement for the Navy.
2) Distributed profits from book sales between the author and the SEAL team members, as a reward for their services.

I have no doubt the crew of the Vinson was proud to give OBL a proper, ceremonial send-off.

And, if you believe the story about muslim prayers and what not, I want what you're smokin'.

I'm betting over half the crew pissed on him.
