I do put the blame where it belongs, the Commander in Chief

Who is leaking all this $it? Biden?!

Sounds like the children were in place and ready to mix with the waiting Somali defenders. It was a trap!

Link to another story on this with interview with the parents of Aaron Vaughn, Seal Team 6 member killed in Afghanistan.

TrentoVision - SPECIAL - Billy & Karen Vaughn - SEAL Team 6

Where to start? Chilling video. The host goes on a bit, starts getting good about 15 minutes in. Parents of fallen Seal Team 6 member discussing and trying to bring to light the TREASONOUS ROI (rules of engagement) foisted on our military by the Obama administration.

Remember when we had normal military and special forces raids that were kept secret, not for public consumption? Never in the history of the United States military has another president compromised military operations and put team members in danger like this no-nothng POS that calls himself president.

“This was a high value target...someone who is worth far more alive and in interrogation than dead.

Value my ass. We would get him and get him lawyered up. You want to arrest him, do it on your own dime.”

My thoughts exactly! We can't use advanced interrogation techniques, so how are we going to get them to cooperate? Invite them to tea? This thing smells.

Obama may or may not have set up the Seals. I don't put anything past him and his admin. At the very least they sent them on a mission that could have been carried out with Obama’s drones. If they wanted it to be a success, it was to make it look like Obama was doing something. I do not believe it was the value of the target.

A command decision had been made that the prize was not worth the risk of casualties to civilians and SEALs.

One would think that this decision should have been made before deploying our team in the first place.

Almost sounds like the administration is slowing trying to wipe out SEAL team 6 to hide what happened in the Bin Laden Raid.

Closing the loop.

If you really have that experience then you should know better then to bad mouth service members in harms way from your arm chair.

Instead you are siding with Obama and NBC to ridicule young men putting their lives at risk for this country.

You don’t do that in public. Any problems are addressed privately.

Oh I have service experience and am a disabled vet. Of course I’m not the hero you are so I don’t insult other Americans in the line of fire.

You’ve broken the faith chainmail. shame on you, IF you have 29 years it was as a REMF.

Think about how many traitorous scum we have in the Obama regime that hate the military, hate veterans, hate US citizens, hate Christians, and hate America. Secrets are sold and delivered to our enemies. Treason such as this has consequences and often gets the results these pigs seek.

“Service experience” “disabled vet” Didn’t say combat vet, didja? I am a combat vet and have holes in my body to prove it. I also spent those 28 years training and leading a couple of generations of combat leaders and developing new technologies, tactics and doctrine.

Nobody does any of us any favors by candy-coating failure. If you are or weren’t professional enough to raise your voice when things went wrong, then you weren’t a leader, you were a cheerleader.

And the Commander in Chief makes his decision based on the advice of his commanders in the field and his joint chiefs of staff. They tell him their advice and their best decisions and he gives the go ahead based on that. I know you know this.

I don’t see a need to justify myself to someone choosing to insult and attack Americans in harms way following orders.

Thats you.

You’re a puke.

See? Great lip service about “supporting vets” but when a real vet disagrees with you, the childish name-calling starts.

You led no one. If you had, you wouldn't have lumped all SEALs with the ones you allege screwed up somewhere in your heroic combat duties, where you were an eye-witness to multiple historic battles. Oh yeah, and you'd have a more precise way of referring to those battles, so as not to slam all of the rest of our people and mix them up with the ones you have decided are inept.

You're a fraud - a "keyboard commando" as you put it. And it there are holes in your body, it's because you didn't get your ass on the ground fast enough while others were running to protect you. Or it's because you got fragged by your own men for being a sh!tmouth one too many times.

Wow. Need to really scale back on the emotions, Bud. All the wild screed stuff just makes you look odd.

Failure is failure. What happened to the SEALs at Grenada (or for that matter Delta?) . How about Panama? Nobody questions our guy’s bravery but I do question the concepts and doctrine behind the operational employment of the SEALs.

Nah, I got shot dragging a wounded man to cover from the middle of an open field. Saved his life and I almost died from it. Spent 7 months in several hospitals recovering from that.

Now, what have you done?

Between the government and the lamestream media there is simply ZERO credibility. I can hardly bring myself to contemplate the details of such a story in any depth at all. There is just no reason to believe ANYTHING that comes out of Washington these days.

I keep getting the impression the President is trying to get rid of this group. Hmmmm ..??

Do they know something about Obama that he doesn’t ever want made public ..??

And now .. I’m wondering if the group that was killed in Afghanistan was not the group .. or the whole group .. that Obama was looking for ..??

I don’t know what it is .. but something about this doesn’t smell right.

As long as Obama is President, the seal teams should wear the red uniforms from Star Trek.

You forgot to mention that you were also coordination air support at the time by blinking your flashlight in morse code, while dodging aligators and crawling through barbed wire under machine gun fire.

Now, what have you done?

Me? I make a mean omelette.

This was bad planning. The execution was ok but what you have is a bunch of gays and women planning this and they “blew” it.
