It is most interesting how many ATSters have jumped on the helicopter attack that saw a number of SEAL Team Six members being killed. With just a
little bit of research you would find out that’s not the entirety of SEAL Team Six, it was actually a very small fraction of SEAL Team Six. It’s
almost like you want to use this crash to expand on your theories without bothering to check if your facts add up.
That put aside, it was a joint attack by the Air Force and the CIA that led to the death of Al-Alwarki and this is the first I have seen any mention
of SEAL Team Six however it is possible that in collaboration with SAD they directed the attacks from a distance. In truth though the media probably
just use SEAL Team Six’s name because it sounds good why not attribute this to Delta or the 24th Special Tactics Squadron. In saying that on the
other hand I find it very hard to believe that JSOC would ever declare to any news outlet that they have tier one assets operational inside Yemen just
now with the current turmoil in the country and the criticism over Operation Neptune Spear.
Therefore I think that CBC may be guilty here of exaggeration or just flat out making this up to make their story slightly more spectacular, everyone
wants to read about SEAL Team Six. For Americans operation Neptune Spear was like Operation Nimrod in the UK that exposed to the entire nation the
existence of 22SAS in the mainstream media, operation Neptune Spear has had the same effect on SEAL Team Six. As a result of this the media are
squabbling to publish as much as they can about SEAL Team Six because the people want to read about them, overall this is a bad thing. The sad truth
however is that most of what they are publishing is utter rubbish to those of us who had a interest in tier one special forces assets before the
assassination of Bin Laden. For instance, the media can’t even get the name right, SEAL Team Six is actually called the United States Special
Warfare Development Group (NSWDG) then they portray them as supermen and publish all kinds of rubbish that the lay man wants to read. This has created
a complex web of ignorance with regards to NSWDG and I fear a network of false stories and I believe there is a chance this could be one of them.
