    SEAL-spotting becomes local sport in Virginia Beach after bin Laden raid


    VIRGINIA BEACH — Finding a Navy SEAL in this city should be easy. This is where hundreds of America’s most elite warriors are based. This is where their heroic exploits are celebrated and retold, especially since a team of Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden in a bold raid on the al-Qaeda mastermind’s Pakistani hideout.

    But finding a real, active-duty SEAL in this beach resort — not to mention one of the 20 or so members of SEAL Team 6 who swept into bin Laden’s compound early this month — is like chasing echoes in a fun house.


    .Almost everyone has a military pedigree in this Navy town, so almost everyone claims to know a SEAL, a former SEAL or somebody else who does. After a while, you start thinking you see them everywhere, until you realize that even here, in the heart of SEAL country, all those years of speculation about bin Laden’s whereabouts have been replaced by a new post-Sept. 11 mystery: Where is the SEAL, or SEALs, who put the bullets in bin Laden? Someone has to know around here.

    “They say they know who did it or they know someone who knows someone who did it,” said Carlie Kinzey, 18, a server at the Raven restaurant, which was a popular hangout for SEALs years ago when SEAL commando-turned-novelist Dick Marcinko’s daughter waited tables there.

    Without fanfare, SEAL Team 6, as it’s popularly known, returned to its base outside this city last weekend after a congratulatory visit with President Obama. The Navy Times, citing unnamed sources, said the elite commandos — who actually go by the official name of Naval Special Warfare Development Group, or DevGru — are divided into four color-coded squadrons based at Dam Neck, Va. Of those, Red Squadron got the call because its 50 or so members, about half of whom were chosen for the raid, were on alert.

    Since then, SEALs have become the object of almost feverish attention here, with many people feeling proud of their warriors’ heroics, protective of their identities and a little paranoid about the possibility of some al-Qaeda payback.

    And we watch the SEALS at the beaches by the Amphib Base near Coronado for years and years and years. So?

    Security reasons aside, why is it that the media assumes everyone wants and needs attention? There are people in this world who like to do their work anonymously. Not everyone is an attention whore. Not everyone needs constant praise for what they do.

    Why can't the media just leave em alone?

    You want to thank Seal Team 6? Be a good American. Everyday. For the rest of your life.

    Why do you contribute this to liberalism? Any average journalist is plenty nosey, regardless of political views, and would love to be the first to break that story.

    If you watch FOX they have as much if not more coverage than the rest of the media.

    Were you all as upset of Valerie Plame? probably not. How sad.

    Valerie Plame?....:lol: What a bunch of bullshit that was. Friken publicity hounds and political hacks and you compare them to our seals? :cuckoo: The New York times gleefully leaked classified info throughout the Bush administration and will continue to do so.

    In order to leak info it must originate somewhere. So if Bush had leaks in his administration that must mean the his people were responsible for the leaks. I believe that our seals and all of our covert operatives deserve the same respect and protection regardless of their politics and who is in charge. The fact that you can't see that makes me wonder.

    As usual the title you chose is disingenuous. Where in the link provided does it show how the media liberal or otherwise is attempting to "OUT" the SEALs??

    You really are totally full of shit.
