When I first saw this story a couple of days ago, my first thought was: why are SEAL missions front page news all of a sudden?
Now it's beginning to make sense.
A commando unit from the US Navy’s Seal Team Six launched an amphibious raid on a Somali town, but failed to confirm a capture or kill of their Al Shabab target, suspected to be linked to Nairobi’s Westgate mall terror attack.
Because this team is the one that took out of Osama bin Laden--according to Vice President Biden--it must be continually humiliated in the public eye, even though many members of the team at the time of bin Laden raid are dead.
And if unnamed sources keep compromising SEAL OPSEC, even so soon after the fact, the present team members will end up dead as well. One wonders if that's the plan.
