Fabled SEAL Team 6 Ends Hunt for bin Laden

Fabled SEAL Team 6 Ends Hunt for bin Laden

Associated Press

May 02, 2011

WASHINGTON—Navy SEALs are being told to keep the details to themselves after the military special operations group killed Osama bin Laden in an overnight raid in Pakistan early Monday.

The Navy officer in charge of the elite unit told his troops Monday that they should be proud but keep quiet about it. In an email message obtained by The Associated Press, Rear Adm. Ed Winters also says the fight is not over, and sharing too many details can endanger the next operation.

A unit of specially trained SEALS known as SEAL Team 6 stormed a secret compound in Pakistan overnight. The operation involved a small number of U.S. forces and lasted about 40 minutes.

U.S. officials say the SEALs left with bin Laden’s body and unspecified evidence gathered at the scene.

    It's a great day when the worlds strongest military can flex its muscle and show people that we back down from no one. And a big thanks to Richard "Demo Dick" Marcinko for having the forethought to create SEAL Team Six when he did. As the premier counter-terrorism unit in the world, they showed everyone what they are made of and how they operate. These guys will never ask for praise, but will do whatever is asked of them, no questions asked. Talk about writing the ultimate check to this great country. A job well done. Thank GOD for our SpecWarriors and the entire Special Operations community.

    Now we need to cut off all aide and money to Pakistan. There is no way in hell that the Government did know exactly where this guy was. The have been protecting him for a long time all the while taking our tax dollars in aide.

    This operation was evidence that we have the Greatest Military and the Finest Military Units in the world. And as far as the Associated Press is concerned, I think that they should acknowledge the accomplishments of the Bush Administration, for setting up the response that eventually led to this victory. I can say however, that I am glad that the president made the right decision in ordering the raid, and allowing the exsecutive order issued by the Bush administration to stand. Even though he takes the full credit in the eyes of the liberal media, those of us that remember his original stance on the fight against terror, know better..... And so I give credit where credit is due: THANK-YOU SEAL TEAM-6 AND ALL OF THOSE WHO HAVE FOUGHT THE GOOD FIGHT AGAINST OUR ENEMIES..!! THANK YOU ALL FOR A JOB WELL DONE..!! THANK-YOU PRESIDENT BUSH..!! FOR YOUR STANCE AND POLICIES AGAINST THE TERRORIST THREAT THAT EVENTUALLY LED TO THIS HUGE VICTORY..!! AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, THANK YOU PRSIDENT O' BAMA FOR FINALLY GROWING A PAIR..!!
