Brave enough to write it, not brave enough to face the consequences?


I bet if it were someone you knew, you'd be singing a different tune.

All missing the point.

Guy did this because he wanted:
- To make a buck.
- His 15 minutes of fame.


and you have that proof of that how?

did it you ever stop and think maybe he wrote it so people would know what its like? believe me, if a former seal just wanted to make money, there is a hell of a lot easier ways to do it. such as defense contracting.

Bissonette plans on taking all the proceeds from the book and donating it to the family of fallen SEALs.

Bissonnette was first identified by Fox News. One current and one former U.S. military official confirmed the name, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss military personnel matters.


I don't blame Fox news as much as I do those sneaky US military officials who ratted out one of their own. Stop using anonymious sources.

Geraldo Rivera revealed troop location in Iraq back in 03.

But we all know the stupid crap Rivera has done in the past.

And this just goes to show you how big of a joke Fox "News" really is.

He was brave enough to raid a compound in Pakistan to kill Osama bin Laden... I don't think you have any room to be calling him a coward.

To be honest, I don't think terrorists are too particular about who they kill (hell, they often kill themselves). If they are going to retaliate at all, they will just blow up some random whitey. Bissonnette should be more wary of his fellow Americans.

I'm sure if it was just him he'd be fine with that..

But what if they just decide to blow up something in his home town, or [ if he had one ] kids school ?

The risk is small imho, but enough I wouldn't be reporting the name..

As for Geraldo.. he got raped by all the media for doing that.. just saying :p

So you potentially out SEALS (like Chaney did when he outed a CIA agent) and put them in danger, to what, score political points? And they say they are for the troops. FOX should have their license revoked.


Well, not me but I have absolutely no doubts Fox News certainly would.
If you think about it, Fox News cannot attack Barack Obama on his record regarding the war on terror: Obama continued and intensified the usage of drones strikes, commited military resources against Khadafi in Lybia without any cost of US soldiers lives and he ordered the SEAL raid which lead to the demise of Obama Bin Laden without any doubts of his fate.
The 'Obama is a friend of the terrorist' routine does not hold any water against the facts.

Fox News is so deep in their smear campaign against Obama:
Had Obama wait for getting more intelligence, Fox News would be saying that he is a wimpy president
Had Obama ordered a bombing raid, Fox News would be claiming that the death of Bin Laden cannot be verified
Had Obama did the raid on his own and kill Bin Laden himself, Fox News would say that Obama is stealing the job of US amred forces special forces

I think it's wrong he's been outed really.

He's doing the work he's been told to by the US Government. He shouldn't be identified as an individual (IMHO). Ironic really too that Fox did it, given how much noise Fox make about their patriotism and so forth.

I stand corrected, then.
