SEAL Team 6 Unhappy With Obama

By Wyatt Earp | November 7, 2011

A new book by the former commander of SEAL Team 6 sheds light on the details of Operation Neptune’s Spear, the mission to capture Osama bin Laden.

The book claims the SEALs were not happy with Barack Obama’s post-event actions.

The men who killed the al-Qaeda chief have decided to speak out because they are tired of their “shabby treatment” by politicians who claim they were on a “kill mission”. They insisted there was no lengthy gun-fight in the compound and claimed they would have captured Bin Laden if he had surrendered.

The details of the mission, which was codenamed Operation Neptune’s Spear, are revealed in a book by the Seals’ former commander, Chuck Pfarrer. “I’ve been a Seal for 30 years and I never heard the words ‘kill mission’. It’s a fantasy word. If it was a kill mission you don’t need Seal Team 6; you need a box of hand grenades.”

When discussing the release of bin Laden’s death photos, the president claimed he didn’t want to “spike the ball,” yet he did just that by taking credit for the mission afterward.

And in so doing, the book claims the team thought he jeopardized future missions.

He said the men were angry with President Barack Obama for announcing Bin Laden’s death on TV just hours after they completed the mission on May 1.

“There isn’t a politician in the world who could resist trying to take credit for getting Bin Laden but it devalued the ‘intel’ and gave time for every other Al-Qaeda leader to scurry to another bolthole,” he said. “The men who did this and their valorous act deserve better. It’s a pretty shabby way to treat these guys.”

Fun fact: The squad’s code name was “Jedi.” Nice. The exact details of bin Laden’s last moments are at the link. Interesting reading.

    Again folks, it’s the Chicago WAY……

    Always take credit when public opinion agrees with the action…….

    If public reaction is negative, condemn the action…….

    For the SEALs to say things like this in public against a sitting POTUS is almost unheard of. It also implies their commanding officers share the same sentiments and are brave enough to back them. Watch for the SCOAMF (thanks again for telling me what that meant Randall)
    to try to retaliate against them in some way via media, their careers etc.

    Oh yeah almost forgot. You getting all this JANET !?

    I can’t say it any better than did Jon Brooks, but I don’t know what SCOAMF means.

    LDIV – Well, if the book is to believe, Obama “exaggerated” the facts at hand. The question is why.

    Jon – I am so sending your comment to AttackWatch!

    What a sorry excuse for a Commander-in-Chief. Guy makes Bill Clinton look like Patton. Hell, he makes Hillary Clinton look like Patton.

    For Seals to do this means every last one of them is not afraid of the outcome, and some politically correct asswipe of an officer will be bringing a shitstorm down on their heads–just watch.
