I wonder how many of you truly understand the quality of person it takes to be a Navy SEAL, an Army Ranger or Green Beret, etc, etc. The only thing I know about it is what I've seen from various Discovery Channel, Military Channel, or National Geographic shows. Which is to say, not much. But they give the stats. The washout rate is high, only ~25% make it through SEAL training. It is TOUGH. We see the NFL players, the NBA players, they are the elite of their sport. A Spec Ops troop will have the physical attributes to play those sports, but will also have the fortitude to keep that up for hours on end, but will also have the intelligence to carry out a mission in FUBAR. These men are incredible. And the United States spends a lot of time, money, and resources making sure our elite are ready.
And we lost 2 a few weeks ago. Two.
We don't lose SEALs. We don't lose Rangers. We don't leave them out there to battle alone if at all possible. But Obama, his administration, did just that. These 2 SEALs, Ty Woods and Glen Doherty, attempted to be the rescue team for their colleagues, but their Supreme Commander, the Commander in Chief, did not have their backs.
And what does Hillary Clinton have to say to the father of one of the SEALs? "We will make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted." Really? The film? That idiot was practicing his First Amendment Right.
I apologize. I have no ability to close this post. I leave you with this.
TRULY SCANDOLOUS!!! THEY WERE DENIED SUPPORT THREE TIMES WHILE THEY STILL HAD THE ADVANTAGE. Why is FoxNews the only one covering this? http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/26/cia-operators-were-denied-request-for-help-during-benghazi-attack-sources-say/
