I agree completely. A lot of people need a massive dose of "shut the fuck up". Wherever the leaks are coming from, they need to stop. It's putting lives at jeopardy and making the U.S look unreliable as an operational partner with our allies, not to mention it is making it harder for our ops teams to recruit informants etc. Who would want to help out the U.S if it meant that they were leaked and subsequently killed because they spoke to us? I sure as hell wouldn't. It's making us look unreliable. Shit needs to stop.
Just seen this, I think this might get good. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/08/29/navy-seal-book-raises-questions-about-bin-laden-death-report-says/ haven't been on the computer in a few days so this might be old. Just thought I would post
You know what pisses me off on this matter. Durning the Bush years, I don't recall ever hearing about operations. I am not a fan of the O. I think he a weak leader and has about as much business being there as a fry cook at Micky D's. Anyway, it seems as though a lot of crap has leaked about ops since his 2nd year. I do believe this story has been giving a green light by a lot of the big cheeses in the command, all the way up to O. This is all of political points. To show he is not weak. I bet when we read the book, that there will be a good deal emphasis on how Obama directed this raid and how he gave the go ahead etc. O doesn't care about anyone except himself and doesn't care if some operator or their family is threatened. I would like to know more about the author. Why did he do this and does he care about his former teammates? Hell remember there was going to be a movie about this op right around this election. Political points.
I have been talking about this topic with a few different people. Some regular civilians that are interested and some former/active military. I can not add much more than what FLNavyVet said as the first comment. I believe a lot of the shit needs to be put on LOCKDOWN no matter what political side you are on. It is OPSEC and can have a devastating effect on lives for those down range and everyone at home. There should be no place for choosing political sides with it. Just as the same, " I agree with WHAT they are saying, but not HOW they are saying." - FLNavyVet
