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.

    You're right pappy, it is far from over. I'm not sure that with today's environment it will ever really be over. At least one of the worst actors has been taken out of the equation.
