    The Navy says the entire leadership of Seal team #7 was fired for charges akin to "drinking on duty" but something ain't right. It seems that Seal Team #7 was the team that unjustly accused Chief Gallagher of "war crimes".

    3 SEAL Team 7 leaders fired for team's alleged misconduct @ 3 SEAL Team 7 leaders fired for team's alleged misconduct

    I clearly remember posting a piece where the new chief of the SEAL Teams declared that something had to be done about the poor leadership of the teams. It seems some non-BUDS qualified types have been given command positions of special operations units.

    ..it's like a lot civilian jobs everywhere---some managers/leaders are not good at it
    ....some of these civilians go to college and learn their trade--they graduate--but they are not good at what they do ....

    ..we had good and bad leaders in my units
    ..being a leader is not like ''working'' math/numbers/etc--you have to work with humans=a very difficult job..you have to get humans to do what you want....sure you can order them around, but you have to earn their respect

    (Retired?) Seal, Marcus Luttrell's book "Lone Survivor" was about a failed Seal mission but the media turned it around in a subsequent movie to appear to be a victory. In the book Luttrell wonders why Seals are on patrol in the Afghan mountains and the question is well worth addressing. Luttrell makes a couple of lame references to Seals not wanting to be billotted with other Military types because they might blurt out secrets in their sleep. Did he really believe the hype or was it a clue about the Seal mission? Why were Seals who were trained to paddle rubber boats while unconscious and withstand ocean hypothermia deployed as snipers on buildings in the desert when Army Rangers and Marines have the same (superior?) skills and experience? The short answer is that Seals were absorbed by the CIA during mostly democrat administrations to be a hyped little army that was not subject to the the usual rules of military conduct. The Military units could be held responsible for collateral civilian deaths by snipers but Seals would be pretty much protected by the Agency and the media. When a hard charger Seal Chief decided to take the war to the enemy, the Navy panicked and the CIA did what the CIA does best and used propaganda and intimidation to convince young Seal recruits to testify against their own leadership. After Chief Gallagher was found not guilty, the Navy apparently decided to take the easy way out by charging Seal Team leadership with "drinking on duty". Meanwhile the entire Seal operation is probably on hold since we finally have a President who relies on traditional Military leadership instead of civilian flunkie college kids in the CIA and a manufactured legacy created by the media

    Wow, you can't make this stuff up. Seal Chief (the media insists in calling him Petty Officer 1st class) Gallagher is suing a non-profit fund raising organization (United Patriots) and his lawyers for intentionally delaying his trial in order to increase donations.
