The team used by Obama has been condemned by the left in this country, of course, that was before Obama started using them to kill people like, oh...I don't know...Osama bin laden perhaps. Here is a Colbert report attacking these hereos before Obama had a use for them.

By the way, someone called into rush today and said he was a former seal. He explained that the seal team, no longer actually called seal team 6, is outside the regular chain of command and reports directly to the President. Someone in the know could probably verify this.

They are not officially Team-6. They were called Team-6 back in the 80's to confuse the Soviets about the number of SEAL teams-at the time, there were only two others.They were once called the United States Naval Special Warfare Devlopment Group, but the name's been changed, and their new official name is classified. They're on the same level as Delta Force-black ops, plausible deniability, top-secret missions.

There is no "Team 6." :lfao:

"Plausible deniability" precludes their reporting directly to the President, but puts them outside the regular chain of command as well.

your opinions are what I desperately seek, Bushidomartialarts. Could we shorten your name in our posts, it is a bit long to type repeatedly? Just wondering.

from the article at the start of the post, and why I go after Colbert:


If Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Seymour Hersh, and Stephen Colbert had gotten their way over the last ten years, Osama bin Laden would still be alive. The intelligence leading to his location would not have been fully developed. The commando team that took him down would not have existed.
Did these liberals hold their views entirely out of political expediency, slamming and indicting Bush and Cheney for programs and policies they would have quietly tolerated from Gore or Kerry? What difference does it make? They were dead wrong, and it doesnt matter why. Theyll be dead wrong again under the next Republican president.

Oh for crying out loud...the Navy Seals are not an assasin team reportable to the president. More freaking nonsese. Now there was a unti in the last administration that reported ONLY to the vice president, but I suppose that was okay...or convenient to forget...or both. More hypocritical thinking.

You sound like a spoiled child who has just been told that the Easter Bunny really does not exist...


In case you missed it:

Your fav past time water boarding did not result in usable intel...
Bush himself decided to rather NOT go after Osama bin Laden. More than once.

And the teams? Well, they have existed long before Bush...and will long after Obama...

And as to your 'those policies were wrong under the republican Pres and will be again under the next'
well, those words work the other way around as well.

And lets not forget, there is a House of Representatives...you know, the guys with the (Rep) by their names, and the ones with the (Sen) too. You know the guys that really craft the laws and make or break a term...it's alsys good to keep that in mind.

But for now you are just mad that OMG OBAMA actually pulled through on a tough decision, one his predecessor did not...who happened to be republican.

Wc LUn, that team you talk about is this team, the one who took out Obama. The one that was a band of assasins, under bush. I think these guys are great americans. It is the guys on the left who thought they were a bunch of assasins when Bush was in office, but now Obama gives them the green light to Kill osama and all of a sudden they are heroes.

Please provide one quotation where someone of note on "the left" has called SEAL Team 6 "assassins."


In order to support your rhetoric, please?

Of course, from timeto tome, they actually are..

Here's what we read in today's Australian papers.

http://www.theage.com.au/world/seal...t-officially-acknowledged-20110503-1e5za.html

The unit, based at Dam Neck, close to Virginia Beach in Virginia, is one of 15 SEAL special forces teams but the only one whose existence is not acknowledged officially

Members are recruited from the other SEAL teams, making them an elite within an elite.

No one can apply to join.
Hope I'm not releasing classified information!

Umm Wrong on two counts. First, Obama is still living. No one took him out. Two, the team that reported directly to Cheney was not under normal military comand structure, which means not a SEAL unit. Try Blackwater.

You can argue with Elder about this, but the seal team that Obama used is the same team that Cheney apparently had control over. This team, at one point called seal team 6 ****that is not what they are called now***** is outside the normal military chain of command. I had someone say that they report directly to the president, Elder said they were outside the normal chain but did not report to the President, either way, whichever is true, they are the same guys, not blackwater. Of course when they retire from the team which is not 6, they could probably get pretty good jobs at the company that is no longer named blackwater.


From the link in the original aricle sited in this post:

Bin Laden was ended by SEAL Team Six, which is part of the Joint Special Operations Command. The hard Left hates the JSOC. New York Times journalist Seymour Hersh said they were “very deeply involved in domestic activities against people they thought to be enemies of the state, without any legal authority for it.” He alleged “they do not report to anybody, except in the Bush-Cheney days, they reported directly to the Cheney office… it’s an executive assassination ring essentially, and it’s been going on and on and on. Under President Bush's authority, they've been going into countries, not talking to the ambassador or the CIA station chief, and finding people on a list and executing them and leaving.”
This is, of course, exactly what SEAL Team Six just did in Pakistan. Hersh was not trying to advertise their virtues. He wanted to shut them down, and a very large portion of the Left whole-heartedly agreed. The New York Times, America’s paper of record, clearly supported Hersh in this, or they would not have published his work. Seymour Hersh wasn’t just a fringe whacko scribbling in the dark corners of the Daily Kos. As Jim Treacher of The Daily Caller reminds us, Hersh’s work was presented and promoted on Stephen Colbert’s popular Comedy Central program.

Um ... Stephen Colbert is an entertainer. I have no idea why you would put him in the same category as the other three.

So you're completely cool with military units operating without any oversight or legal authority?
