Are there any tougher, bad-ass warriors than America’s special forces groups? By now you’ve heard that the last thing to go through Osama Bin Laden’s mind was most likely a NATO 5.56 round.  In a lighting strike that took only forty minutes, a team of Navy SEALs assaulted a fortified compound in Abbotobad, about 50 miles from Pakistan’s capitol of Islamabad. A firefight ensued in which they dispatched four goblins including Bin Laden and his son. One woman who was used as a human shield (did you expect any less?) was also killed . . .

Fortunately, there were no American casualties. The SEALs accomplished the mission even after one of their three helicopters was forced down with mechanical problems. There a appears to be no truth to the rumor the SEALs’ unofficial motto is, “we don’t have time to bleed.”

The Washington Post reports that the Navy’s “Team 6” did the dirty on the 9/11 plotter.

The elite team of Navy SEALs tapped for the job were a group who were stationed at Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach.

The team is part of a counterterrorism group so specialized that no one can apply to join it. The operatives are recruited from existing SEAL teams. They are an elite group within the elite.

The team was formed in response to the 1980 American hostages rescue attempt in Iran, which had been a huge failure and showed the need for a counterterrorist team that could operate under the utmost secrecy.

They exist outside military protocol and engage in operations that are at the highest level of classification and often outside the boundaries of international law.

Initially, the group was known as Team 6, a name that was created to confuse Soviet intelligence about the number of SEAL teams in operation at the time. (There were only two others.)

The name was changed in 1987 to the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, but the group is still commonly known as Team 6.

It’s still very early days, so we’ll surely hear more about the details of the assault, the compound and the rather uncomfortable questions it raises about our, um, friends the Pakistanis. It seems that the only other major facility in the town is Pakistan’s equivalent of West Point so there’s the little question of how the hell they didn’t know this heavily fortified compound with eighteen foot walls was there.

In the mean time, congratulations are due to the SEALs, America’s intelligence community and President Obama for a job well done.

  1. Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
    Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation!
    Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land
    Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
    Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
    And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

  2. Our “SEALS RULE”. I think that they captured the lowlife and are holding him for questioning. This way his lil friends won’t try to force us to free him by taking innocent people hostage. When they get all the info they need from this scumbag he will disappear forever.

  3. Awesome, I’m actually sitting at my parents house “next door” to Team Six’s base. Seeing that Bin Laden was ghosted was the best news I’ve woken up to in a long time.

  4. While I understand the reasoning behind the “burial at sea”, on a raw emotional level I was sort of hoping for a head on a pike. Great job by the SEALs.

    • i am so very proud of the brave USN personnel, their success is a testament to their intense indoctrination and training.

    • I though that his body should have been given to israel. So that it would be known that Islams most famous terrorist’s final resting place was in the hands of jews.

  5. “When you hang from a gibbet at your window for the sport of your own crows, then we will have peace!”

    I was rather hoping that Bin Laden’s body would hang impaled on a gibbet or a pike in lower Manhattan, to be execrated by passersby and slowly eaten by seagulls and flies, but I concede the wisdom of quietly disposing of his body at sea or at least pretending to. I still want a picture of his ventilated carcass, however.

    • I’m fantasizing that before giving him the heave ho into the briny blue, our Navy friends stuffed his mouth with bacon and slathered him with pork fat.

      He’s responsible for the murder of thousands of Muslims. I see no reason to be so fastidious about applying Muslim burial protocols. Why not ensure he meets those virgins in the afterlife smelling like Porky Pig.

  6. We can only hope they wrapped the SOB in a fresh pig skin and filled his mouth with lard (to keep him away from those 72 virgins and out of ‘paradise’) before dropping him from 10,000 feet into the drink.

  7. Bin Laden realizes the jig is up, and as Navy SEALs break through his last defenses and into his room, he decides to make one, last, futile gesture. He screams in Arabic “Say ‘Hello’ to my lil’ friend!” and as he brings his AK-47 to bear (which he never really got around to figuring out how to shoot), he takes one round from a SEAL’s M16 through the brain, just above his left eye.

    He wakes and sits up. “So this is paradise!” he thinks. Suddenly, he’s kicked in the head from behind. He turns around and, much to his surprise, recognizes George Washington, as the Father of Our Country kicks him in the jaw. Teeth go flying. All at once, Thomas Jefferson, Richard Henry Lee, James Madison, Edmund Randolph, George Wythe and about 66 others set upon Bin Laden, beating the crap out of him.

    “WAIT A MINUTE! THIS CAN’T BE! THIS isn’t PARADISE! Where are my seventy-two virgins?!,” Bin Laden gasps.

    Washington smiles a steely smile. That was a typo, you idiot. It was supposed to read “SEVENTY-TWO VIRGINIANS.”

    And the beating started up again – for all eternity.

  8. What is it with helicopter maintenance? Glad to see the SEALS did their part in spite of it all.

  9. “Osama Bin Laden, World Champion at Hide and Go Seek 2001-2011. Navy SEALS, Olly olly oxen free.”

  10. I’m very glad that US special operations people got him, and not some Predator Drone or a laser-guided bomb dropped from 30,000 feet.

    Because a strike team got him, that means Osama bin Laden knew that judgment day was at hand when he heard the helicopters overhead.

    He knew precisely and exactly what was about to happen to him as the operators stormed his compound, sliced through his security detail, and kicked in his bedroom door. He had to look into judgment day’s eyes as they stared back at him from about 20 feet away, slightly above and behind a rifle’s muzzle.

    That’s my favorite part…..that Osama bin Laden had plenty of time to know precisely who was coming to get him and why.

    I’m so glad that he had time to realize where and how it would all end, instead of just going instantly into eternity because of a missile or a bomb that arced in from the sky, completely unseen and and unheard.

  11. Navy seals are cowards like the rest of yanks. The future for America is to drown in its own debt and ask for outside help to survive………………Yanks are warmongers and killers.
    Sleep well after killing another innocent great man.
