Skip to comments.Navy SEALs Want to Protect Their Identity Following OBL Raid
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.

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!!!
The Vice President already outed them!
So wrong on so many levels.
Read about Biden outing them!
And also illegal, fraudulent and outlaw. Obama is ineligible.
Don’t worry. Omoslem will order them to lead a ticker-tape parade, wearing nametags + Social Security numbers.
The rat bastards made such a big deal about Valerie Plame who was a pencil pusher outed by another Dem.
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!
I’m expecting Leftist groups to out these Seal’s identity the way they outed CIA agent’s identities.
There are NO words to describe the way I feel about these people. I feel the disgust in my bones.
The fact that these men should have to worry about this is MADNESS!!! This administration is a WMD targeting our very foundation!
I am sick to my stomach.
The Vice President already outed them!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.
Never mind what these SEALS think. This administration has a football to spike.
Uboma will throw these guys under the train in a heartbeat as soon as he sees some political benefit to himself.
Look for him to name them, give their addresses and next of kin.
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.
Apparently these clowns are into outing the military in more ways than one.
“It should have been reported as an operation conducted by American special forces and left at that.”
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.
China has our helicopter.
US outs seal team 6.
All for a bounce in the polls.
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.
