    Period.
    Emotionally I want to. Intellectually I know he has to be held to the terms of whatever contract he agreed to. I did and so did the government and it took me 23 years to prevail.

    The SEALS are not heroes or saints. Try not to be such a fool with your backwards mentality that just because they are soldiers makes them heroes or some crazy stuff typical conservatives believe. Remember these guys rely on taxpayers money to live and they are really so much bigger than anything positive the government funds that they are really a major problem more than anything else.

    And yes you do know something about being blinded by a charismatic psychopath. Her name is America the backwards. Wake up, and smell the coffee.
    No worries; I'm quite the coffee-drinker. And I know now exactly what you are too.

    I'm no hero... Never was. I'm just an old killer... Hired to do some wet work. ~ Charles Beckwith(founder of Delta Force).

    One of the best quotes to have ever been said on the nature of these guys.

    Look, Obama can take credit that this occured under his watch. Frankly that's fine, it got done. Bush said from the beginning that this war on terror would go beyond his presidency, so he was aware that not everything would get done in 8 years. Bush certainly had a hand in affecting policy to hunt down the terrorist leaders, and they killed many of the top al Qaeda leaders. Getting bin Laden would naturually be the toughest kill, so it took longer. Obama, to his credit, maintained the search and finally got the opportunity. Frankly I don't know what this book says, but obviously however he was killed, he was in fact killed.

    Get back to us about who and what they are when you've been through SEAL training, Runming.

    90% complete initial pre-indoctrination. 85% of those complete indoctrination. 33% of those complete BUDS-1, 87% of those complete BUDS-2, 96% of those complete BUDS-3.

    Out of every 100 men who aspire to be Navy SEALS, 24 will make it through training. They are the elitist of the elite. Don't lessen their accomplishments because they get paid to do it -- or for any other reason.

    What's wrong with you?

    You are aware SEAL TEAM SIX is a whole other unit, right? Or is it cause you are a woman you have no idea?

    You didn't read post 103, get back to me when you do.

    What does your post 103 have to do with your denigrating the accomplishments of Navy SEALS? Or SEAL Team 6?

    Looks like SwiftBoat 2.0 was a dud.
