Why not just do 4 more years and get retirement, pension, and insurance.

Problem solved.


Bingo.

Exactly. Give this damn man a desk job for 4 years until his pension hits. I believe he deserves wayyyy more than that.

The group discussed what would happen if they were surrounded by Pakistani troops. We would surrender. The original plan was to have Vice-President Biden fly to Islamabad and negotiate our release with Pakistan's president. This is hearsay, but I understand Obama said, Hell no. My guys are not surrendering. What do we need to rain hell on the Pakistani military? That was the one time in my life I was thinking, I am fricking voting for this guy. I had a picture of him lying in bed at night, thinking, You're not fricking with my guys. Like, he's thinking about us.


Damn

I believe he should not have to be put in harms way anymore. His mind and story of these events need to be protected. They are all national heroes.

yeah even better. He's a decorated and accomplished SEAL Team 6 member who has experience leading men. I can't think of a better training officer.

quote:

"One of the tests is they make you dive to the bottom of a pool and tie five knots," the Shooter says. "One guy got to the fifth knot and blacked out underwater. We pulled him up and he was, like, dead. They made the class face the fence while they tried to resuscitate him. The first words as he spit out water were 'Did I pass? Did I tie the fifth knot?' The instructor told him, 'We didn't want to find out if you could tie the knots, you a-hole, we wanted to know how hard you'd push yourself. You killed yourself. You passed.'"

This quote would make the outdoor and poli board's collective heads explode.

i think he just didn't want to be subject to their control anymore. he didn't even take the 6 months of transitional insurance b/c he'd have to be a reservist or support role. ASSUMING this is all true

quote:

During one raid, accompanied by two dogs, the Shooter says that he and his team wiped out "an entire spiderweb network." Villagers told Iraqi newspapers the next day that "Ninjas came with lions."

Odd.

My late friend who was a member of Team Six , one of the one killed in the helicopter shooting in 'Stan , told us that all the Team member had swore to each other that they would never discuss the details of the Bin Laden shooting.

Now these guys can't shut up about it.

They probably could have. He has instructor positions open to him, especially after his accomplishments. Than again, maybe that was denied to him because of this very raid.

I have absolutely no idea what went on with this guy and the pentagon. They may have wanted him gone and made his life hell.

If I had to bet though I'd imagine he decided to seperate seeing as he can cash in on this exploit now.

re: The Man Who Killed Osama bin Laden...Is Screwed


quote:

The dead can also be funny, as long as it's not your guys. "In Afghanistan we were cutting away the clothes on this dead dude to see if he had a suicide vest on, only to find that he had a huge dick, down to his knees. From then on, we called him Abu Dujan Holmes.



quote:

Even in action, with all their high state of expertise and readiness, "we're normal people. We fall off ladders, land on the wrong roof, get bitten by dogs." In Iraq, a breacher was putting a charge on a door to blow it off its hinges when he mistakenly leaned against the doorbell. He quickly took off the charge and the target opened the door. We were like, "You rang the fricking doorbell?!" Maybe we should try that more often, the Shooter thought to himself.



we need this guy on the OT

...if he's not already
