    Saw it on Fox and Yahoo this morning. That's as MSM as I get.

    They came aboard my ship (Gator) in the early 90s to practice rescues at sea. Couldn't tell they were sailors. We also had them on a deployment, not 6 but a det from Little Creek, fearless dudes, they got up to some hairy stuff.

    Our Military do a lot of stuff, the public need not know about. This is for one simple reason, to keep ALL American's safer.

    This young people are America's best, brightest, and seldon get the credit for what they do. I know every time I go to the local USAF Base to use the Commassary, the kids guard gate say thank for your Sevice, I Reped same to you kid. They work long hours, not OT, but IMHO have the best job in the world.

    Have a couple of good friend who are Retired SEALS, and Force Recon Marines. Most have some great stories they share, some are funny, some are sad, some make the hair on my neck stand at attention.

    I hope they put him is a metal box with hungry rats. It might make a more lasting impression for his friends when that box is opened.

    They put the best resources real fast to get a single American back. Must be very valuable to someone.

    Ifn it was me, they'd tell whoever stole me to just keep me.

    Awesome. Take 'em out...
    It's too bad that the domestic terrorists and their organizers...all paid by foreign nations... aren't treated as the terrorists they are

    It would have been perfect if they’d have killed all seven. You mess with the bull, you get the horn, exactly. I’m thinking some of the terrorist scum might be deterred some and those that aren’t, can get dead.

    If we're handing out kudos, let's include the intelligence people who told the SEALs where the hostage would be. I expect that they would be roundly condemned if a special operation went bad because of faulty intel.

    I always wondered. Did the assault force run at the camp. Instead of slowly working close. I realize these folks have amazing stamina.. but running in full gear thru loose sand? You make more noise, can’t notice simple perimeter alerts...
    Anyway was the sole reason so the suits could watch the assault in real time?

    Have heard nothing of this from MSM. If it wasn't here I'd never know. Seems like it would normally get lots of fanfare, high ranking people taking credit.

    If it would have been on MSM, I wouldn’t have seen it. I will not watch that garbage. It has been on Parler, OAN, Newsmax, and the leftward turning Fox as well. The leftist fake news won’t show it because it’s a Trump win right before the election.

    Maybe they left the one alive so he could tell his boss what happened, like in the movies.
