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


I wonder how much Esquire paid him? Overall, a drop in the bucket for what that part of the storyline is about, but still, I wonder how much money he received for this insight?

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

Problem solved.

This. Don't tell me there's not a desk somewhere where he can ride it out. He probably thought he was set and tendered his resignation.

Just an FYI these guys aren't held to service requirements like your regular Joe.

If they need a break it's given to them, they're not gonna frick around and force someone to stay who isn't 100% commited to being there.

Are we suppose to feel sorry for this guy? It's not like he wasn't getting paid (really well) the past 16 years. He didn't save any money? And yes, after 16 years he can't go 4 more and get full benefits? Sounds like piss poor planning more than the government screwing him over.

Except that that same guy (BO) has apparently abandoned him now after everything he's done.

quote: I was about five guys back on the stairway when I saw the point man holding up. He'd seen Khalid, bin Laden's [twenty-three-year-old] son. I heard him whisper, "Khalid... come here..." in Arabic, then in Pashto. He used his name. That confused Khalid. He's probably thinking, "I just heard shitty Arabic and shitty Pashto. Who the frick is this?" He leaned out, armed with an AK, and he got blasted by the point man. That call-out was one of the best combat moves I've ever seen. Khalid had on a white T-shirt and, like, white pajama pants. He was the last line of security.


Boss.

Good read. Amazing to know these guys are pulling these missions all the time while we go about our lives.

How ironic




Not saying I feel bad for the guy but let's not make out like he's some bourgeoisie that just lost a 2 mil in the stock market and is complaining.

Do you really feel he was payed "really well" given the nature of his job? Let's add it up assuming he's an e-8 with dependents, including incentive pays like free fall, breaching, dive, hazardous duty, I'm sure there's a special designator and pay incentive for being a team leader in NSW, with all that he's probably pulling between 70-80k a year at the tail end of his career before taxes (which are gonna be reduced because he probably deploys for 3 months or so a year).

Notice this is a highball estimate but even so a civilian contractor can pull 2-3x that much easily in a year with less risk and less time away from home.

exactly if they want to become a cadre then they get it b/c so many guys don't want to be instructors. There are other jobs when they are put in an advisory role getting stationed places where they might be only one or two operators from that career on that base.

I believe they stated he was making 60K in the article.

Yeah like I said I was highballing it.


Also is it just me or does this article seem off to anyone else? Idk what it is but I'm definitely taking this as gospel.

I think they're just going off his rank and corresponding it with the military pay chart not taking into account bah and incentive pays.

Let's not forget active duty pay, which pays more, and I am sure he has received frequently during his 16 years of service. Sounds like good pay to me. And yes, taxes are taken out, but they are taken out of everyone else's income as well. Think about the things he didn't have to pay while on active duty that the rest of us pay everyday with the same income: meals, gas for transportation, medical treatment, (which is something he will receive the rest of his life) rent/mortgage, bills, ect. ect.

Let's not forget he chose this profession just like you chose yours. No draft, no bad faith coercion.

He was what rank? E-6?

He got BAH, another $1200 extra or so a month on top of his regular pay and all the extra pay associated with seals.

He wasnt making chump change

Obviously he's active duty...


And this is at the tail end of his career like I stated. 15 years ago he was making 17k a year as an e-2 or whatever.

Idk where you get the idea that military members don't pay for meals, or gas, or rent, or bills

I factored in housing allowance but I can tell you that ain't paying for a house mortgage.

Honestly you seem fairly ignorant when it comes to the military and yeah I actually chose my profession same as him but I can tell you neithe one of us did it for the great money.
