Navy Seals: Grateful For Nation, The first rule of Seal Team 6 is not spoken of Seal Team 6. The second rule of Seal Team 6 is that. NO. Talk. On. Seal Team 6. But that will be enough to keep these men and their families safe?
This week, government officials revealed that keeps watchful eye over elite team of Navy SEAL 6 and their families, believing that there may be a real threat to members and their families.
The U.S. government believes there are publications that provide money to find out the identity of the Navy SEAL team that caused the death of Osama bin Laden.
According to ABC News, during a town hall meeting at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, on Thursday, Defense Secretary Robert Gates admitted the death of Bin Laden has intensified the threat of extreme retaliation against them.
“When I met the team last Thursday, expressed concern that, particularly with respect to their families,” said Gates.
Don Mann, a former member of SEAL Team 6, said no fewer than 25 journalists to ask him to identify one of the labels involved have approached him.
“Many of the journalists try to get interviews. They are trying to get the story, and I would like to stop,” he said. “We’re just hurting the SEAL community.”
The anonymity of this team is your best defense and if word gets out only what they are, lives are in danger.
The computer resides in Virginia Beach, and a dangerous game has arisen between residents and media in the area called “SEAL spotting, in which journalists and fans try to select members of the elite team.
Some of the military and intelligence communities are calling an unprecedented violation of confidentiality, even to specifically identify equipment 6. After all, they were part of, at least in name, a “top secret operation.” This would include disclosure of the base for the team.
However, Mann said the SEALs know what they’re getting into when they join the unit that specializes in high-risk operations.
“When you become a SEAL, after something like this is dangerous,” said Mann.
The Defence Secretary said he was surprised by the amount of information to be disclosed.
“Frankly, a week ago in the situation room where everyone agreed it would not release the operational details of the effort to get bin Laden, and that all came crashing down on Monday – the day after,” said Gates.
“My friends in the community tell me that is excited by the little attention they got,” said former Pentagon deputy undersecretary Jed Babbin, U.S. Says News and World Report, “but at some point in the best way to help is to stop. You in the press have done a good job, but stop for the love of God, stop.”
U.S. Navy SEALs, as well as the equipment that caused the death of Osama bin Laden, are grateful for the country to show support, but are growing angry with the continued focus on its operations, tactics and tools, saying that could jeopardize future raids and safety.
Government officials are rumored to be discussing plans to ensure that the SEALs and their families are safe, and are also considering legal action to stop any publication that can identify any of the seals involved.
