    I think its ridiculous that the situation room and CNN in general are covering this SEALS death like he was a world's celebrity. Since the death of Bin Laden United States NAVY SEALS has by default become some kind of celebrities in our culture. Hows that thousands of soldiers that have died in Afghanistan received almost no acknowledgment while a SEAL gets a days worth of coverage! Is his life more important than others? Is it because he is a SEAL he is more valued than some 19-year old who gets blown up by an IED? It is a pretty pathetic trend that has evolved out of Bin Laden's death and I think medias plan to pick and choose their battles when it comes to glorifying certain servicemen over others is pretty sad!
