Totally unneccessary and in practice, the exact opposite sentiment that you may have been trying to convey.
Do you honestly think that the taliban doesn't know who is coming and going when you're using afghan interpreters, domestics on bases, etc I remember them arresting a laundry woman in our camp because she was caught drawing a map of our machinegun emplacements, mortar pits etc. That was not the only case either and this was in the days before you had cell phones to transmit the intel.

Mate I'd highly doubt interpreters that handle highly classified and sensiive information are just random blokes off of the street

I see your point but I'd highly doubt the Afghan president's brother was a major drug dealer too, but he is. Being a highly intelligent and vetted person does not remove them from the possibility of being an Afghan "patriot". but the real purpose of this post is not to focus on that but on the man so willing to take the glory, the new photo-op of him saluting the dead SEALs released by the whitehouse, and who is now going to be lauded in a film about how he took out Bin Laden. To be released 3 weeks before the election. This is the same man who salutes the flag, or not, as his mood suits. Its all politics with him.

That's a totally different point, that I think is at least possible. I'm responding to the tin foil hat conspiracy that somehow the POTUS, DOD, or the military, etc "had them killed" to silence them because they knew some truth about OBL (which is batsh#t crazy to believe and dishonors our military and the men who died).

I think the numbers may have been bloated to cover seals lost during the obl raid. I have heard rumors (yes rumors and nothing more) about family members not hearing from their husbands or whatever in the seals since may1st.

This is a conspiracy theory. But it wouldn't surprise me at all, the government goes through a lot of trouble to make the seals seem invincible, so it would make sense they use this as an oppurtunity to cover up some deaths.
