Mark Owen is just a pseudonym for Barack Obama. Follow me here.

Look at it: MARK OWEN - BARACK OBAMA

Take out the BAC, garbage letters (or bank of america, which funded Obama in 2008) and you get ARK.

Take out BAA (Banro corporation, which is an outfit out of the Congo - Africa! Kenya! Obama!) and you have MO. MARK O.

Obama is not only trying to claim he personally killed Osama Bin Laden, but he's also letting out important national security matters. This must end!

I think this guy thought someone would be as greedy and a big a douchebag as he is and he needed to cash in before someone could beat him to it. I think the guy broke his oath and his word and the idea that you're not supposed to talk in detail about the things you do. I work in network security and have seen some wild sh*t, but I would never tell anyone details about a customer's network or give any info that could identify a customer, whether I have a contract telling me that or not.

There are things you just don't talk about because it's expected to be private.

This guy wants his millions, and the DoD will likely take his money, but I sense he was also angling for a Fox News job or a role on the Republican speaking circuit.


Wild network security shiat.

He's seen things that you wouldn't believe. The DNS for entire LANs poisoned just to get one guy's computer to load goatse. And he will never forget the carnage of the great MAC conflict of 98.

I can't, it's classified. Besides, I have to get to the Core gym in 26 minutes.

So the moral of this story is if George Bush is in office and you release classified information that makes him look bad you're a whistle blowing hero a la Bradley Manning. But if Barak Obama is in office and you release classified information that makes him look bad you're a leak and should go to Leavenworth.

Glad to see the Fark double standard is still in full effect.

Crotchrocket Slim: In telling him to shut up when he's spouting straight up gospel. It's pretty apparent you've never even met someone from the service in your whole life, or if you have they are the same straight up sell outs the rear admiral is calling out.


LOL, uh, I've spent five years in the Marine Corps and three in the National Guard, champ. So gurgle on them balls, wontcha?

The official said that a recent movie starring actual Navy SEALs and even the growing number of "SEAL" workout videos have all added up to too much information about the community out in the public arena.

I'm pretty sure the Navy gave full cooperation for that movie, considering it started out as a recruitment video. Oh and I'm sure those special pull ups show exactly how to perform room clearing techniques.

Oh so THAT'S how you killed Bin Laden???

Science_Guy_3.14159: Believe it or not most military people, enlisted men and officers, are quite humble and disciplined and get quite upset when they see another soldier that isn't.


When we were short on manpower in Iraq and using the Marines as middle-east mall cops (I guess the infantry was busy? who knows) the Corps lowered their recruiting standards to the level of... well, rent-a-cops. They may have been an elite force in the past, but nowadays they're not really spec anything, just generic security forces that can be, and regularly are, subbed for by merc organizations like Blackwater.

//Meanwhile, the navy can still blow a mite off a fly's wing with a 400mm cannon from eight miles off without harming the fly, and the air force dominates so hard that they don't even particularly need pilots to blow up your house.

//Not that there's anything wrong with generic security forces, I've met some TSA guys that are quite nice and respectable people.

My Grandfather was enlisted Naval Intelligence in Vietnam, and served on the Camp David security staff. (I have his white house medals and service records to prove it. Along with some really interesting gifts from Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson's staff)

He taught me a really valuable lesson that I still hold onto today when dealing with people who claim to have been in the "Special Forces" of any branch: The ones that actually were don't brag about it for the most part. They either don't want you to know, or don't like to talk about it.


Y'know, my grandfather was on a Presidential security detail, too.
Of course, the president was Batista, but still...

The major reason for political butthurt over this book seems to be that this guy says the mission was a lot more about kill than about "kill or capture".

"No Easy Day," the new pseudonymous book revealed to be by Navy SEAL Mark Bissonnette, claims that Osama bin Laden was unarmed when shot at his Abbottabad compound last May. That's another key discrepancy in a story that's already changed several times since the initial days after Obama, to much acclaim, announced the killing of the Al Qaeda leader.

If you remember, the initial story was that when Bin Laden was shot, he was firing weapons while hiding behind one of his wives who he used as a human shield.
