When three Navy SEALS took simultaneous shots at Somali pirates as they bobbed at sea, we learned what just released photos of dead terrorist in Osama Bin Laden’s compound tell us: Navy SEALS don’t miss.
Ignore hype we need to release OBL’s gruesome photo asap to prove he’s dead to quash impending drumbeats of a U.S. conspiracy he’s not. Why doesn’t the Pentagon issue a psy-ops press release that Osama is bunking with Elvis, in a plush safehouse, enjoying 72 virgins and, while the weather is perfect in heaven, hell is hot.
You know they know…especially if they are watching American networks, the support for the troops, The President, lionizing the US Navy SEALS, Obama’s scheduled visit to the memorial for 9-11 victims in New York Thursday, his surge in the polls, no longer on the ropes.
Deep down, as they lie on cots or beds of sand, shaking scorpions out of boots, double checking their AKs, the clock is hitting midnight, and if we listen hard, we just might hear hearts pounding a world away…Even the most cocky and arrogant among them understands there’s a reckoning and is fighting The Fear, fighting Uncle Sandman to stay awake, even as he slips away, clutching his weapon, nodding off into another nightmare ….then bolts upright…Is he wondering:
Did I hear a noise? A helicopter? Are SEALS coming for ME? Is tonight MY night?
