    Would the US military provide photos and the identities of those involved in the raid that killed bin Laden? SINCE WHEN? The conflict/WAR against terror continues.

    No, of course not. Why would you want to identify them and put a target on their backs or their families for terrorists to attack?

    NOt a vet but NO they will not tell you who killed him. IT keeps the Seals safe. If it was public there would be very dangerous for them

    Did anyone notice in Netanyahu's speech last night how he refused to divulge any information about a possible Israeli strike or military action. We on the other hand tell the world when we're going to increase our numbers in a surge and then when we're leaving the battlefield. The other side doesn't need spies, all they need is cable TV; they can hear all about what we're going to do before we do it.

    Netanyahu is an OG in the game, he's not going to tell anyone anything about Israeli Military activities, we need to take a page out of his book.

    I don't recall a U.S. President with such a blabber mouth as this guy Obama regarding our SEALS. The identity of the killers of OBL should have been left to special ops/forces - NOT U.S. Navy SEALS. They don't want the publicity - nor should the president even mention they were involved. This is what happens when a Manchild is the Commander In Chump. Idiocy.

    Are you sure you've thought this question through?
