Ok Im not saying that they did bring an M60 but I think it would be very good for this operation if 1 was brought by one of the 2 dozen involved

Couple of points:
If anyone thinks they are going to find pics online of the SMU commonly called "Seal Team 6", you're wrong.
Second thing is "Seal Team 6" is not operationally under the SEALs; it is a unit recruited from all the SEAL teams. A SEAL can't apply to go in for 6, 6 recruits SEALs and retrains them their way.
If you want a measure of how elite these folks are, I've heard that around 50% of the SEALs recruited don't cut it.

Anyone else not like the use of the word "assassinate" in regards to what happened to OBL?

this article is about SEAL team 6
but the image they show is NOT a SEAL team.
Those are NOT Navy Personnel.
1) Those are US Army Uniforms with Army unit patches.
2) That soldier has an M-60 strapped. SEALS do not use M-60's.
3) the other soldier has an M-16 30 round banana clip in his hand. SEALs do not use
You are right, SEAL use a sterlie uniform with no insignia or patches. You can clearly see the circular patch on the right shoulder of the closest solider.
The M16 was phased out several years ago for the M4 carbine. they look the same and the M16 is a generic name much like Xerox. At the end of the day they are very close in design
Your M-60 theory is unfortunately incorrect. Our military has not used the 60 for a long time as a field carried weapon for our soliders. What you are looking at,is a SAW M249 light infranty assault weapon(5.56 NATO) that replaced the 60, years ago and the SEALS certainly do carry them.
M240E4/M240B The M240B was the standard infantry medium machine gun of the U.S. Army and is currently standard in the U.S. Marine Corps. It is also in service with the U.S. Air Force, Navy, and Coast Guard. It comes configured for ground combat with a buttstock and bipod, though it is also mounted aboard ships and small boats. It is almost always referred to as an "M240 Bravo" or even just "240" verbally, but always written as M240B.
