Default SEAL Team

As we take time to mourn the loss of our brave men at arms, let us also remember who made it publicly known which team killed Bin Laden for political gain. God bless our troops.

Way to use a large loss of life and war fighting capability to make a political jab. A very weak jab at that. Your a real class act.

+1. Remember the fallen. Honor their names with praise for a job well done.

Yeah, because the Chinook had a great big "Seal Team 6: We're the ones that got Bil Laden", painted on the side, so the Afghans knew where to shoot.

Totally unneccessary and in practice, the exact opposite sentiment that you may have been trying to convey.

I sure would like to know who ordered the dispatching of this operation. Why didn't they send a bunch of Predator Drones in ? They keep bragging about how good they are. If not drones, why wasn't the Chinook supported by a bunch of Apache's. I think it was a setup. I would like to see an investigation.

Even when you spend the better part of a Trillion dollars per year on defense, you still don't have unlimited resources. Questioning the politics of being there or not is very fair but it's not fair to question military decisions made by commanders on the ground who are not in control of resources they are given a mission and are commanded to use the resources available to accomplish that mission. As a military man myself I just can't believe that anyone military or CIA or whatever gov agency would take part in a mission to kill 30+ military.

As to why they didn't send in Predator drones, it's because they needed boots on the ground. Predators might do fine providing some close air support but they are not the same as having boots on the ground or an apache or A-10 flying overhead. In this case I have no idea what the mission was but I would bet anything it was not air support, it was something that required people willing/able/capable of doing dangerous **** with a good chance of success.

Bingo.

The troops on that helo were quick reaction folks on their way to assist some special operations troops who were in a serious firefight. A Taliban terrorist got lucky with his RPG-7, that's all.

At least one of the troops on that helo was a US Army EOD man from Hawaii.

May those brave men rest in Everlasting Peace.
