SEAL-spotting becomes local sport in Virginia Beach after bin Laden raid
The Washington Post ^ | 13 May 2011 | Frederick Kunkle

Posted on 05/13/2011 11:43:15 AM PDT by Meet the New Boss

VIRGINIA BEACH — Finding a Navy SEAL in this city should be easy. This is where hundreds of America’s most elite warriors are based. This is where their heroic exploits are celebrated and retold, especially since a team of Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden in a bold raid on the al-Qaeda mastermind’s Pakistani hideout.

But finding a real, active-duty SEAL in this beach resort — not to mention one of the 20 or so members of SEAL Team 6 who swept into bin Laden’s compound early this month — is like chasing echoes in a fun house.

[snip]

It’s wise not to be too nosy in some places, however, because asking too many questions about the SEALs raises alarms. At Hot Tuna Bar & Grill on Shore Drive, no one on staff wanted to talk with a journalist about their SEAL customers. When a young woman in a bachelorette party started talking about how five or six SEALs had visited the place on Cinco de Mayo, a manager rushed over to expel the reporter.

[snip]

As if on cue, a couple eavesdropping from the next table butt in. They want to see some press credentials.

Except to say that they are military and have unspecified security clearances, neither the buzz-cut young man nor his date wants to identify themselves. But the young woman, her eyes locked on like radar, suggests that al-Qaeda terrorists might pose as journalists to find out what brand of floor cleaner the restaurant uses, obtain an identical container and fill it with a deadly biological agent.

If AQ does decide to kill some SEALs, chances are they will kill a lot of fake ones. There are 10X more fake SEALs than real ones and the fakes ones love to talk.

I am willing to wager that “finding” a Navy SEAL who doesn’t want to be found would be the finder’s last act on Earth.

After the practical repeal of “Stolen Valor” that may not be all that bad...

Why would AQ go after SEAL’s when they can go after the innocent and helpless?

A friend of mine is military medical and he says you can spot the SEALs because they don’t look military. Which means you can’t.

If it were up to me, I wouldn’t talk to ANY media type.

THEY are not your friends.

The SEAL's may not be weak and helpless, but their loved ones are. These SEAL hunters are little better than enemy spies, and should be treated as such

OPSEC is your friend...I know that the families receive OPSEC training as well, but they need more protection and care, they do not think OPSEC 24/7 like the SEALs do.

It’s a matter of time before the media gets duped by some clown claiming to be a SEAL team 6 member. Maybe that will shut them up.

I just thought of a way to deal with the media types.

We blindfold them and tell them we are going to take them to meet the seals.

Then we take them to the Virginia Aquarium and dump them in the seal tank.

ADVICE FOR DEALING WITH SEALS:

1. Do not try to find SEALs.

2. Do not give SEALs a reason to try and find you.

H’mmm I can just see the announcement: EPA declares that the decreased spotting of SEALS at Norfolk indicates that it is an endangered species and orders all residents and within 100 miles north and south along the coast line and 20 miles inland be evacuated and all structures be torn down so as to return the Norfolk area to its pristine environment that enabled a large SEAL population to exist between 1000 BC and 1600 AD.

These SEALS are already an endangered species. And so are their families.
