"...he felt that the US and Britian wanted Hitler to damage the USSR as much as possible and drug their heels on a European invasion."

Ironic, since there is a school of thought that believes Stalin intended to let the Axis and Allies chew each other up and then the Reds would sweep up the pieces. That plan went out the window with Operation Barbarossa.

We were also a little busy in the Pacific too. Sorry if we didn't move fast enough for your commie ass, Uncle Joe.

Yep our professions safety an abilities was based on total secrecy an a valid need to know. To many career climbing dipshits who used such to impress the press as they pressed the flesh endangered generations of EOD techs.

Same gap in the ability to work safely, effectively with economy of manpower an material is created by polidiots who allow presstitutes to “know the details”....SEAL’s or not.

No need to say UBL was killed with a 147gr OSM subsonic 9mm hollow point jacketed bullet fired from a Heckler & Koch MP5SDA3 suppressed subgun etc...

He’s dead.....next !

All they have to do is tell the press that if the dont leave them alone, they will do a special ops job on the record offices at harvard and hawaii, like the FBI agents told bill clintoon when he thought he could pardon Leoanard Peltier. 400 current and retired agents came to the white house and said not a rock in his life would remain unturned if he did. Bill didnt look back and put up his pen.

"Generations" being a key word there. Add to it the loss of unknowable but likely large quantities of highly actionable and strategically valuable intel due to the dumbing down of our interrogation techniques and we can expect many unpleasant surprises for the foreseeable future.

It's disgusting but the sheeple just don't get that actions, and inactions, have consequences without fail.

I don’t doubt that a bit. I think that throughout the armed services we have some of the finest people to ever serve in any military and as big as the bureaucracy is that is a phenomenal fact. I just hate the political slugs that send them to war and the media that makes it all a show.

Talked to a recently retired Marine Pilot today. Outside of his anger in what Obama is doing to the Military, we discussed the aftermath of the OBL operation.

He is in disbelief of the idiots in the Administration giving out all of the information that was captured from OBN’s McMansion.

Biden starts it off outing Seal Team Six as the people who did the deed, and now the rest of the idiots can't help themselves divulging sensitive information.

Good thing these guys weren't around in WWII after we cracked the Japanese Codes.

Incidents *could* have happened under President Bush, but they would have not been broadcast to the whole planet. There may have been many happenings, but President Bush knew why and when to keep his mouth shut.

This administration’s lips flap so much they’ll cool off the globally warmed earth.

I said the following on another thread, and am repeating it here because, for once, I hope conservatives raise their voices in unison to demand Robert Gates' resignation.

If Robert Gates had any honor, he would have resigned last Tuesday, then immediately held a press conference, and told the American public that he strongly opposed the administration's making operational details of the raid public. He would have had a much bigger audience, and what he said would have had far more impact. Frankly, he took the coward's way out while keeping his cushy job. Plus his admission comes after his 60 Minutes appearance when he called Obama "gutsy." That's what sticks in the public mind, not his wimpy admission (complete with nervous laughter) about the broken deal to keep operational details classified.

I heard a news item on FNC a few days ago that some group of well intentioned people delivered a folded flag to one of the SEAL’s family. It was meant as a thank you. But when they delivered the flag to the home it alarmed the family and they feared the worse had happened to their SEAL. The family and SEAL were outed and identified. FNC has failed to follow up on that report, which is a good thing. How this group knew the SEAL was involved in the raid I do knot know.

"You guys in the press have done a good job, but stop for God's sake, stop."

Mr. Babbin, you don't understand. The press aren't doing this for their country, or for the Seals. They are doing it for their leader, Obama. They will keep it up as long as it helps their leader - they don't give a damn what the Seals want.

Yes yes, for goodness sake lets not ask any more questions. Now that we know the story originally put out was total BS, for maters of national security and for the safety of our navy Seals we must not question anything about this operation. Trust in Obama. Trust in Obama.

Wondering how (and why) a body could be flown by helicopter 200+ miles to Afghanistan, be unloaded, DNA tested, photographed, etc, reloaded, flown by helicopter 800-1000 miles to a US ship, have a religious ceremony performed, and then dumped into the ocean...ALL IN 8 HOURS...surely could put Navy Seals in danger. Its national security dontcha know. Stop asking questions! Trust in Obama.

I think they have gone beyond simply spiking the football now.

They are doing the "endzone boogie" and showing the playbook to the stadium can see how clever they are (despite the fact that is isn't really Obama/Biden playbook, it is the real American playbook that they happened to be using).....

Is this the same MSM that doesn't talk about bombing both sides in a Libyan "Kinetic Humanitarianwar..um what is the PC name again for killing in a war??

The same MSM that doesn't cover Egyptians murdering Christians and burning their churches?

The same MSM that writes whiny stories about the poor MILLIONS of arabs "displaced" and have a "right to return"( when Grand Pooftah of Jerusalem/Hassini/pro Nazi's and others forced their own arabs OUT of Israel with promises it would be temporary, and then they lost five major wars and still augment the number of "displaced, from once 100,000, to 250,000, to over a million to this weeks news it's really 5,000,000 displaced real palestinian( name formed in 1964[by Arafart, nobel peace prize dude that nce disemboweled a pregnant womans child while alive] when Obama[nobel prize whiner that is pro-abortion even when child is poking their heads out of the womb?] was almost conceived during the Selma march...or there abouts) arabs that lived in lil ole Israel before the Joooos kicked 'em out?

The same MSM that is pro Hamas/al Fatah, Terrorist State? The same MSM that continually lies and covers Obama's many blunders, hatreds, complete racism, complete financial war against America, forced American banks to bow to communist China...the list is too long?

The same MSM that seemingly has stopped reporting completely on the FUBAR Libya is, the illegality of bombing a country in a civil war, and so many two faced lies no one understands why the ASmerican military used 1/2 billion in bombs with no apparent outcome and Obama completely bypased congress going to the UN?

The same MSM that seems to have a love affair wih CAIR, HAMAS, Mooslum Brat-Hood, faulty reporting, complacency or outright libel and malice toward "TEA baggers extremists" and other "Right wing Extremist Agenda?"

The same MSM that has virtually ignored the FUBAR by prematurely pulling out( sorrry sounds like a sex move) of Iraq and not posting the DEAD fallen warriors daily like they did when Bush was in office?

The same MSM oowned by Soros and has created a ful attack group very similar in comparison to the multiple lawyers running up to Alaska to find dirt, subvert and call Palin everything from a two bit whore to attacks in the media on her developmentally disabled child?

Wait there's more, some one help me with this list. The fourth estate is no more. It's worse that radio Moscow, sounds more like Tokyo Rose, Axis Sally,Hanoi Hannah, Baghdad Bob( hee hee), Keith Olbermann no, Keith Olbermann, Christine Amapour, and more.

Oh it's bad and the SEAL's deserve anonymity or it's just one more treasonous act spewed not just by journalists but leaked by the State Dept, the WH or the DOJ.

Basically, it seems Obama wants to be king as he tears the constitution, weakens our armed forces, tries to make our vets looks incapable of carrying firearms, forces the military to hire homosexuals, tells lies about the Mexican border and told Mexican crowd he will fight "enemies" that are against illegals and anti( illegal BTW) "sanctuary cities. Yes,, some one will hound the SEAL's until they find a name, anyone, but looking for "SEAL team six is a laugher, no such number, ...that's one good move that has even fooled military buffs, as Marcinko's Team six was gone back in the 80's. Unless it wasn't and if it wasn't then these people spewing the name are all aiding and abetting top secret info and the security of the soldiers, their families, and the whole of American military!

I did not keep track but I do recall an ABC Seal’s exclusive leaking sensitive material. Which paper leaked that the seals wore cameras on their helmets? Well...I’d say the nitwitted , unprofessional Obama admin leaked it with their LOOK AT US situation room picture they released. Hillary is just as unprofessional as all of the Obama admin. I am so sick of hearing THE INSIDER garbage that the Clinton’s are non progressives that really feel our pain.

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. Frankly, when I first heard the news that night, I ASSUMED that Bin Laden had been killed at least a week earlier.

What the Seals and CIA should be worried about is the threatened U.N investigation. Does anyone doubt that the Zero Admin would hand over their names and addresses?

The delicious irony there is that the top name on any arrest warrant the UN scum might draw up would have to be Barack Obama.
