SOFREP on CNN’s A360: Accused Killer’s Military Skills Explained

One thing I do like about Anderson is his desire to get the facts straight.  I’ve worked with his team before and they’re pretty locked on.

    I think above anything else, the morale and integrity of your guys units should be taken into consideration before any operation is green lighted. Whether its hunting donnerr or some other op doing whatever. When the stuff comes out the other end of the tube it leaves to much to speculation and all kinds of weird rabbit hole thinking. You guys can say it doesn't bother you but I know it does. i guess what imI'm saying is you guys are the last people I want to see fucked over because of some misinterpretation of info. Whatever was going on with donner we will never really know and really we ain't supposed to. As far as you guys, don't tell me about it. Get it done and when you get back I got a hot shower, some warm clothes, a soft bed and if you want a choice of women that will treat you right. Just saying fellas for the job we ask of you, we can't turn around and then judge you on how you got it done. Appreciate you to the fullest

    @SEAN SPOONTS  @majrod The shout-out! section of his manifesto was ridiculous.  Who writes a suicide note and gives props to Ellen DeGeneres? Charlie Sheen? It makes no sense.  Anthony Boudrain is a true renessance man who is, "too cool for school" How does anyone come up with this stuff while running for their life?

    @AUNITEDPEOPLE  @majrod  @hjw1dr This guy was a flight wash-out and a General Unrestricted Line Officer reservist.  He was not a trained shooter from the Navy.  He was not a Specwar operator and for being a LT he had almost no medals or devices.  I wonder where he was since '08?  Just to be clear he wasn't a commando he was a GURL.  I celebrate his lame-ass service but keep it real.  An admin officer isn't very dangerous normally

    Classic barricade operation with Dorner. Surround and call out. Its getting dark, cold weather put in some CS.  CS is usually deployed as a pyrotechnic and starts the house afire. Set houses on fire during training and during ops using CS and smoke grenades. Shit happens
