CNN's Barbara Starr reports on the Navy SEAL who has written a book with details on the Bin Laden raid.
RELATED STORY: Risks for Navy SEAL in Bin Laden raid
Navy SEALS everywhere, both active and retired, should be outraged and embarrassed by the behavior of this small group of admittedly Republican SEALS who have put their personal political motivations ahead of the service of their country. Although they are certainly entitled to their personal opinions and are free to express them in the voting booth, they are sworn to serve the President as their Commander-In-Chief and should resign if they can't keep that oath with honor. I smell Dick Cheney's or Karl Rove's Machiavellian, underhanded work in this whole thing. These guys have allowed themselves to be used in a petty, shameful, underhanded attempt to smear the President and sway the election. In the process they have sullied the once excellent reputation of the Navy SEALS forever. Shame, shame! Decent SEALS should stand up and decry this whole thing!
I am retired military war vet that worked with the seals. This guy is a traitor to the Seals, the military and the USA. I want to know WHY?? If it was to embarrass the Obama administration was a stupid ideal. The leader of this Seal team had to write an AFTER ACTION REPORT and send it to his leaders (through any hands) before it get to the President staff. If this report was wrong, it was passed on by you-all. He is a big Fool for falling in to this Republican trap. They don't care for this country and will do anything to embarrass President Obama. For 4 years they refused to sign any Pres. Obama Bills including the Job Bill so they could win the White House back. I agree with Gilbert and Oliver. These guys are a disgrace to the noble profession of the Seals and should be prosecuted.
So this totally negates the ad by the Republican Seals who criticized Pres. Obama and said he spilled sensitive information about the raid. This Seal is doing what they suggested times a hundred. I wonder if he is a Democrat, Republican or just greedy for fame and money.
Let's hope he got some good legal advice on how to sufficiently sanitize his account of events. I'd hate to see a good soldier spend time needlessly in Leavenworth. This brings to mine another so-called soldier. Seemed more like a jealous-hearted, whining, sissy to me than a soldier... Scott Taylor... went on T.V. and claimed that President Obama had nothing to do with the capture and execution of Usama Bin Laden. He claims that the Seals did this on their own. Anyone with half a brain knows that the President is Commander-In-Chief, and that you do not go into a foreign country on any kind of mission without a mandate from above, unless you are looking for trouble. The sad part is.. that ut of respect for the uniform, people will actually listen to a fool like Scott Taylor.
This guy is still liable to military specially if he had top secret clearness, I had one I was clear of it until 5 years after my with total of 10 years after my ETS. He may face military charge if he reveal top secret information.
