SOFREP’s Greatest Hits #10: SEAL TEAM 6 Throws OPSEC to the Wind

It’s no secret in the SEAL community that NSWDG (Naval Special Warfare Development Group) has become their own biggest fans, so much so that they’ve forgotten what it means to be a silent professional. Many in the “Command” are the first to chastise former SEALs for writing books, and appearing in the media but irony would have it that the biggest betrayals our community have come to know are from DEVGRU (No Easy Day, and active duty DEV guys consulting with Hollywood to name a few).

This piece landed Jack on one Team Six guy’s target deck, but SEAL leadership could learn a few things from his write-up.

    @willybigs Nobody is criticizing the SEALs under an anonymous handle.  I wrote the article in question and am solely responsible for it.  My real name is Jack Murphy and my service can be verified by the Ranger Association or the Special Operations Association if you have any questions.  The article was introduced by Brandon Webb, which is his real name and his service with the SEALs can be verified via Don Shipley.  The only people with a credibility issue are those who come here posting under pseudonyms in a sad attempt to spread rumors and start drama.
