If ever there was a time for strong leadership in the Department of State and US Special Operations Command it’s now. Hilary Clinton has proven to be more concerned with her political ambition than actually developing a long-term strategy to promote diplomacy abroad. McRaven is a seasoned leader however, his tier one boys at DEVGRU (SEAL Team Six) are facing a myriad of self-created problems; some we choose not to say publicly.

The new Secretary of State will have their work cut out for them that’s for sure. The Middle East and North Africa (the new terror safe haven) continue to be as volatile as ever.

Syria-civil war with the U.S./EU versus China/Russia

Kuwait-continues to arrest outspoken citizens on Twitter

Iran-laughing to themselves as they go Nuclear

N. Korea-who the hell knows

Somalia-Piracy is alive and well.

Mali-AQ camped out with other extremists.
