The SEAL Team 6 member who killed Osama bin Laden is facing an uncertain future after leaving the service and receiving a “go fuck yourself” from the government, an Esquire article about the unnamed hero reveals.
“I left SEALs on Friday,” the unnamed SEAL told author Phil Bronstein last September. He exited a little over three years short of the 20-year retirement requirement. “My health care for me and my family stopped at midnight Friday night.”
“I asked if there was some transition from my Tricare to Blue Cross Blue Shield. They said no,” the SEAL told Bronstein, executive chairman of the Center for Investigative Reporting. “You’re out of the service, your coverage is over. Thanks for your sixteen years. Go fuck yourself.”

The sale of Al Gore’s left-wing television network Current TV to Qatar-based Al Jazeera has raised a number of eyebrows on both sides of the aisle, particularly after TheBlaze’s offer was rejected for what Current TV described as ideological reasons.
The Wall Street Journal related last week that officials at TheBlaze were told “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view.”
Current TV host Joy Behar appears to be falling in step with Al Gore, overlooking her open-minded, liberal principles when discussing her new employer.
After “The Late Show” host Jay Leno jokingly asked her whether Osama bin Laden would be her new boss, Behar replied: “To me it’s like ‘Al Gore, Al Jazeera, Al Pacino.’ It’s all the same thing to me.”
The comedienne continued: “I just work there…I’m learning Farsi, you know.”
But when Leno mentioned Glenn Beck’s offer to buy Current TV, Behar’s tone changed.
“Yes, that would have been a nightmare,” she said seriously.

SEAL Team 4 Commanding Officer Job W. Price commit suicide. He was best known for finding and then killing Osama bin Laden.
Cmdr. Job W. Price, 42, died Saturday, Dec. 22, of a non-combat-related injury while supporting stability operations in Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan.
Suicide of the Officer of this grade raises many questions among the media, as the team was best known for killing Osama Bin Laden that assaulted his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan on May 1, 2011.

During his radio show on Wednesday, Rush Limbaugh said “if we’re gonna accept this notion that hurt feelings inspire terrorism” then maybe President Obama’s constant “bragging” about killing Osama bin Laden led to the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Libya. The violent assault left a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans dead on Tuesday.
Limbaugh took a call from a listener who presented the following question: “If the Obama administration is so concerned about not hurting the feelings of these terrorists, then why are they constantly spiking the ball about killing bin Laden?”
“You know, that is a great question,” the host replied. “If we’re so concerned about hurting the feelings of Muslims, why is Obama bragging that he killed Osama so often. That’s a fascinating question. Yeah, in fact, their campaign slogan is ‘GM’s alive and Osama’s dead,’ or something like that. They’re ramming it down the throats of Islamists all over the world. In fact, in Egypt at the embassy yesterday, the protesters were all shouting, ‘We’re all Osamas, Obama. We’re all Osamas, Obama.’”
He added that “if we’re gonna accept this notion that hurt feelings inspire terrorism, then maybe Obama is responsible for this, and ultimately maybe the blame falls to him.” Limbaugh appeared to be reacting to recent claims that the filmmaker of an anti-Muslim film is to blame for the attack, seemingly deflecting blame from the Islamists who are responsible for killing innocent Americans.

Banned by the U.S. media, this should be required viewing for every adult and child over 12.
It is estimated that at least 200 people jumped to their deaths, far more than can be seen in the photographs taken that morning. The jumping started shortly after the first jet hit at 8:46 a.m. People jumped continuously during the 102 minutes that the north tower stood. It took just 10 seconds to fall but it wasn’t fast enough for the victims to lose consciousness before they hit the ground.
Former President Bill Clinton is campaigning on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, hitting the stump for President Barack Obama’s re-election effort in swing states, despite the fact that both campaigns are supposedly taking the day off. That is typical Obama–take the high ground while others do the dirty work. Meanwhile, the New York Times renews its attack on Obama’s predecessor for “negligence” in ignoring warnings about the attacks.
It seems only fair, then, to remind the American public that not only does Obama skip most of his daily intelligence briefings, but also that the Clinton administration bears some of the blame for allowing 9/11 to happen. The 9/11 commission identified several Clinton failures, including four missed chances to kill Osama bin Laden, and a failure to adopt “a more aggressive counterterrorism posture” after Al Qaeda’s initial attacks.
The Clinton administration sent a signal to Al Qaeda that terrorism would succeed in pushing the United States out of the Middle East when, in response to the embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, the U.S. pulled back its diplomatic presence in the region. Clinton answered with an ineffectual cruise missile attack on Afghanistan and Sudan; Al Qaeda followed up with its deadly attack on the U.S.S. Cole in October 2000.

The Pentagon on Thursday threatened legal action against the Navy SEAL who has written a book recounting his role in the raid that killed Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.
“In the judgment of the Department of Defense, you are in material breach and violation of the non-disclosure agreements you signed” and the Pentagon is considering “all remedies legally available to us,” Defense Department general counsel Jeh Johnson wrote in a letter to the author, who writes under the pseudonym “Mark Owen.”
