A Story About Seal Team 6

I found this story linked to at yesterday something I just couldn't put down, to put it in conventional reading terms. The Crimes of Seal Team 6, by its title, certainly has the intent of putting members of the team in a bad light- those crimes generally having to do with mutilation of enemy corpses. I didn't have a problem with that, though, even if true. It covers many of their more widely known operations, including first hand accounts of Bin Laden's killing.

I suppose you'd have to have interest in military history and stories of war as I do to find this interesting, or maybe not? A fun story for me, regardless. I wish there was more of it to read. 

Addendum: In the Ozy mail today is a story about a SEAL who is working as a technical consultant for the new TV series Six. Short read.

Entire story appears to be hearsay.

It could be argued that most stories told are hearsay since they rely on memories of what someone has seen and what he's heard from others.

The most chilling part of this? The president sent them, the leaders told them to leave a frightful scene to mess with the enemies minds, and Congress never had their backs. All soldiers should understand their oath is to the Constitution, & that unless Congress constitutionally & officially declares war, congress won't back them.
