I have mixed opinions on this subject. One one hand, The bumbling idiot we have as the Vice President spilled the beans about Seal Team Six and their participation in this combat event. Until then, NO ONE openly talked about Seal Team Six. I was the Gunner's Mate Detailer when Seal Team Six was established. I got in a heated argument with the SEAL Detailer because he, without my vote, brought a man back into the Gunner's Mate rating because the SEALs needed his special training. I was angry because Chief promotion billets were tight and I was fighting for my people's promotion possibilities. Also, he had changed rate to Navy Counselor and you already know what I think about NC's. I lost that argument and I did not know why until I was selected as the Force Master Chief for SURFLANT. At that time, the east coast SEALs belonged SURFLANT, so I represented them. The Command Master Chief of a SEAL unit invited me for a tour. I went to that tour and found out what I never knew. BUT, it was all highly classified!! I never broke that confidence. But the Vice President did.
Then, the President let the Hollywood people in to make a movie about the raid. A movie that will make the President look tough, decisive, brave. Maybe he was. But Hollywood does not need access to SECRET information about an elite unit established to do clandestine things, in the dark, without a finger print.
So now, the liberal, left wing, progressive, socialist, news media is up in arms because a SEAL that was actually part of the raid wrote a book about the truth. They are saying he broke the rules, outed secret data, and sold out our military. Again, maybe, but I don't think so.
I want to know what Hollywood was given access to, and if it is more than the book reveals, the SEAL in in the clear. Additionally, I doubt if the book can do any more damage to national security than the Vice President did!
My bottom line is, I am sick of the double standard of the left wing, progressive, news media. If Vice President Bidden did not do anything wrong, if the President did nothing wrong by giving Hollywood access to the raid's details, then the SEAL did nothing wrong!! We are a society of laws that are supposed to be applied equally for all citizens. But it seems to me Progressives are more equal than the rest of us in the eyes of the progressive media.
