SEAL of Approval
Yeah, I'm still incredibly busy and will be through next week (look for things to improve drastically a few days into February) but I wanted to take a second to link to this story, which once again proves just what bad-asses our Navy SEALs are.
The Huffington Post: U.S. Military Raid Frees Hostages/1.25.12
The first line of the article says it all:
"U.S. Navy SEALs parachuted into Somalia under cover of darkness early Wednesday and crept up to an outdoor camp where an American woman and Danish man were being held hostage. Soon, nine kidnappers were dead and both hostages were freed."
This team was apparently the same one that both killed Bin Laden and took out those three Somali pirates back in 2009, so their record just keeps improving. As I've said before, my father was a SEAL, so I hold these guys kind of close to my heart. Rangers lead the way and the Deltas liberate the oppressed -- but when you want the most dangerous people in the world to die never knowing where the hell that shot came from, you call in the SEALs.
