I had a chance to talk to a buddy who is in the middle of SF training at Fort Bragg. He's says that a group of Navy SEALs showed up to run through the SF training. He says the SEALs failed miserably. Now, neither he nor I have any axes to grind with the SEALs. I thought, as did my buddy, that they are some high-speed badass killers.
Now my fragile man-crush is shattered. My buddy said that the SEALs were making really dumb mistakes, the kind of mistakes that are getting a lot of good men killed in The Stan. Mistakes like setting up bad ambushes with no security; basic warcraft the SF can (literally) do in their sleep.
I was left with the impression that the SEALs were a bunch of pretty boys who are all about having the latest gadgets and the best sunglasses.
I hope I am wrong.
