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.

    That's SOP with these guys. I have been honored to have met and actually become friends with two SEALs right after their last deployment to Vietnam and they were both men I deeply admired for their courage and humility. SEALs are the only men on this earth that I immediately show honor and respect to. Not only did I eventually get to know two in 1972 but I also watched new SEALs go through their training in Coronado in 1972-75 and these guys are tough and really the best of the best. Great job men.
