MythDragon: Not the first time a SEAL liked writing books and giving up secrets all about his glory.


That guy (Richard Marcinko) had a legit beef with the Government that absolves him of any crying about opsec and glory hogging. Clearly he is a bit crazy, and certainly he was/is an egotistical maniac; however, he ended up going to jail over some BS because he pissed off and pissed on most of the brass in the Navy.

Plus, I like his books and wish he would write some more of them with the original co-author. The later stuff was pretty bad, but remains a guilty pleasure of mine.

FTFA: "...the point man proceeded to rush two women he found in bin Laden's bedroom, gathering them in his arms to absorb the explosion in case they were wearing suicide vests,"

Yeah, but when I rush two women and gather them into my arms to "absorb the explosion" suddenly I'm the bad guy.

Deep Contact: So lets get this straight.
This is the guy who masterminded 9/11.
He said he didn't plan 9/11.
No one is sure who shot him.
No one saw him on the ship that dumped his body.
Rumors that he died in 2001 if kidney failure.
Thousands killed and injured.
Trillions of dollars spent.
Seal team 6 members killed.
I need a drink.


Knowing is half the battle.
The more you know the more you're confused.
The more you are confused the less you will act.
Ignorance is strength.

Why not just trust the military story.  I mean, they wouldn't lead us astray for recruiting purposes would they?  (Jessica Lynch, Pat Tillman, etc)

Onkel Buck: I dont care who got em, just remember that...


The funny thing is that when they needed to kill off JR for good in the new show, they had a mysterious person shoot him again.

I get what subby was going for, but it still sounds like he's talking about cannibalism.

I was talking about that impersonating guy who got found out at his reunion just the other day. I couldn't share the news story with them because I couldn't remember his name. Please tell, or links to good source I can send them appreciated.

I just Google searched for 'Fake Marine'.  If you find his picture in the 'Image' search list, you can get to the site that is hosting the image and that should do you nicely.

Thanks for the suggestion. I kept getting hits for that fake Marine standing guard after Newtown.

LonMead: Obama wasn't killed in an Esquire profile last month... he was killed almost two years ago in his bedroom.


Who was killed?

Everyone knows who the real shooter was....

No, ladies, I shot OBL.  How YOU doin'?
 
2013-03-27 01:44:04 PM
I don't believe for one second the "official story" is how it went down. Everyone wants to believe it was some heroic mission dude was probably sticking his head out his window and got picked off from a distance.

Mentat: Guys, can we just agree that everyone shot bin Laden?


FINALLY!  I get the credit I so richly deserve.

Died in 2004 of kidney failure.


And then seven years later the Obama administration stages a fake attack in one of the most risky and needlesly controversial ways possible, and talks bin Laden's wife and daughter, al Qaida, the Taliban and the president's domestic political opponents into corroborating their story.

Seriously, you're still a deffer?

And then they crashed a helicopter in his garden. Just for the hell of it.

Far stranger things have happened to suit a political agenda.

Not losing a really expensive, secret helicopter would have looked a lot better. Crashing it really doesn't suit any agenda.

Well I for one am not surprised.

The Esquire account seemed fishy  and self serving - especially about 'The Shooter''s self-serving bs about how poorly he's been treated since he retired.
 
2013-03-27 08:53:53 PM
I imagine there will be more accounts to follow. No one is ever going to let the story be told clearly and reveal much of value.

Esquire did the exact same thing with Al Pacino in 1995. Between that and the creepy-as-hell Ali Larter/Allegra Coleman thing,  I had assumed they would be out of business by now.

In all likelihood, the full account will eventually be declassified, but that probably won't happen until at least 25 years after the operation took place or until all of the sensitive information has become moot (whichever comes later), as was the case with the operation that "Argo" was based on.
