Since he is touring the Country taking ALL the credit, I agree, let his name be the one and only name on any U.N Investigation.

Let the liars in the bars brag about being SEALs. The real ones should always have their identities kept secure, especially for the immediate family member’s sake.

Don’t the SEALS realize they are on Obama’s re-election committee??

Exactly!

[remember the USS Carl Vinson had muslim sailors who performed the 4 takbirs at OBL’s burial at sea . . .a phrase which should raise concerns about their loyalty to our military]

Has the video of the funeral been released? Have any sailors who were there spoken?

Last week, on the John Batchelor Show, Larry Johnson questioned the whole timeline of Osama's destruction and disposal. The copter flights were too long and the DNA analysis time too short. He believes they actually dumped the body over the Hindu Kush. He also stated that the Seals' first shot, allegedly taken as Osama peered over the balcony wall, missed.

“They (today’s media) probably would have been waiting on Omaha Beach for the troops to come.”

Hopefully, the Germans would have slaughtered the media.

F**k the treasonous media.

Can you imagine if today's media were around during WWII? They probably would have been waiting on Omaha Beach for the troops to come.

Just more bodies to climb over as the troops stormed the beach.

“Sorry if we didn’t move fast enough for your commie ass, Uncle Joe.”

Exactly. F**k the USSR. The USSR started the war, in concert with their BUDDY HITLER, by attacking POLAND. When the Germans were killing Russians, and vice versa, it was a clash of two EVIL forces.

And the dirty SOBs. despite the massive aid that helped save their stupid communist asses, never returned the allied (including US) airmen that were shot down and captured by the Germans over the eastern areas that fell under the iron curtain. Something like 20,000 guys. Imagine those poor guys rotting away in some GD gulag, or perhaps just executed!

We should have nuked them for that alone!

This is stupid. We live in a time of war and the fools manning the boat are giving away tactical info. Let the real men do the dirty work for us and stop it with the info-sucking selfish behavior. Loose lips sink ships to quote Fr.

Those members of ST6 and their families need TDY out of CONUS OCONUS.... Basically, “Where would you and your family like to go on an all-expense paid holiday for six months, maybe a year, anywhere around the world?”

They “done good”, so think of it as a modest reward.

Are you on the side of the enemy? You are effectively demanding that the team is disbanded. Skills are perishable, our country is broke, our enemies are numerous and this highly competitive all volunteer unit didn't sign-on to live like meth abusing lottery winners. This team is there for a reason far beyond the vanity of our current _resident. Would you like to have the entire fire department go on a one year holiday at tax-payer expense after they put out a fire at the local opera house? What do you do in the meantime?

Just like that maggot raced out here to Tucson to kick off his campaign, claiming he made someone’s eyes open for the first time. Pretty much only the typical Obama voters and hard-core leftists bought his Communist slogan, so he had to find something else to ride in on.

Not at all. Elite forces are used to being sequestered for extended periods. What do you think SEALs do aboard ships at sea for six months? Right now, a bunch of them are twiddling their thumbs off the coast of Somalia, on the off chance that they may be needed to hunt pirates.

The vast majority of their active time is spent training. The Osama mission was planned and trained for, for months. A replica was built of the place, and the SEALs practiced on it over and over again. This was standard practice even back during Vietnam, when Special Forces trained for high value targets.

But even further back there was a recognition that some slam dunk operations are so important that they can be a career enders, for example, Operation Vengeance that killed Yamamoto.

These SEALs have been so compromised that they and their families are pretty much out of the game. Intelligence organizations around the world have ID’ed them, and they will be under the microscope for years.

We know some American POWs from the Korean and Vietnam Wars were also shipped off to the ussr, never to be heard from again.

There has been “too much information” from the start of this highly publicized caper. I thought CIA ops were covert; that’s the nature of the organization, right? And we are hearing far too much about SEALS.

In fact, most ludicrously, Disney has already trademarked the “SEAL Team Six” name and will market SEALS toys and other gadgets.

It is ludicrous the way the mission and the team have been trivialized from the start, as if we needed any other proof of how amateur the admin is.

They should have just shut up about the whole op for at least several days in order to allow the intelligence agencies time to exploit any leads found in the compound. And then, like they agreed with Gates, they should have released no operational details on the mission.

Exactly.

I see it coming too. I feel it. Of course, he will let it out. SEALS are now reportedly worried for their families’ sakes.

Let’s just stop and thank every idiot who voted for this POC.

I recall the very same remarks about not focusing on the SEALS being posted by FReepers shortly after Barry’s speechifying. The SEALS are victims of their own success; being good at what they do (and under Barry’s command as CIC) means they’re perfect for a leech like Barry to exploit.

I don’t blame these SEALs from being pissed, I know I’d be.

Especially when cowardly jihadists will likely go after your family.

He handed over command of Six after his 2 or 3 years were up

Thank you. I was moving up and into a spec ops team at Bragg in the early 80's, then off the the places where nasty bad things happen. I tend to remember the 80's from sometimes week old newspapers, scuttlebutt or maybe baseball scores on a radio. I haven't checked "google' but I thought once Marcinko had his court troubles Team six disbanded but then again that was scuttlebutt and i was army not navy.

BTW he was on Ollie North's Fox's Spec ops special today. I think Marcinko uses that same goop Osama uses used to keep his hair black but I'll NEVER say it within 3,000 miles of the guy H-h-he doesn't read free rep-p-p-public does he?

It was Red Cell that was disbanded. They used to probe for holes at bases.

He documents some of it in Rogue Warrior. Almost makes me want to read it a third time.

There where also allied POW who where shipped off to the USSR after WWII. According to one defector Maj. Gen. Jan Senja (Checklosovakia) who oversaw POW from Korea and Vietnam before being shipped over to the USSR, commented that they where experimented on at nuke blast zones(ground zero, 1 mile out, etc) to test the effects on the body (the Russians showed them film where they did this) and use of truth serum drugs to see what worked where some of that occurred under his watch.

Yes, I've read all his books. A lil story at a nuke facility to be unnamed. The SEAL's were commissioned to test security( not Team six) and in a funny SEAL way they nabbed a bundle of these "Save the Whales" stickers from the protesters that frequently yelled obscenities at the machinery and some of us.

Well one day I'm walking by generators, all kinds of very ummm select areas and sure enough SEAL's were there; they had stuck a Save the Whales' sticker at every primary area in the facility thus rendering the security inactive and the nuke blown to bits!

Took all of 30 minutes to figure how they did it; for now THAT hole is plugged and the nuke facility has better security but some loafers were fired.

There are six or so new books (in the last two weeks) on Amazon about the SEALS...doesn’t sound like they’re getting the “Just Stop” message out very well?
