Author: Jason Murray (Current Enterprise Architect, Former SEAL) Circuit – sick of hearing “SEALs” “Some of the millions?” I’m sorry, but not only should Bissonnette have to forfeit every penny he ever earned peddling his story about one of the most sensitive SOF operations in history, he should have to forfeit his freedom as well.

There’s “always some kind of solace sought in decorating someone with the award,” said one of Slabinski’s former leaders at SEAL Team 6, who spent more than 30 years in Special Operations. In 2007, Slabinski was sent back to Afghanistan as a squadron master chief, which made him the senior noncommissioned officer of Blue Squadron. A quick reaction force, consisting mostly of Army Rangers, then engaged in a pitched battle for control of Takur Ghar, as Slabinski called in airstrikes from his position down the side of the mountain. But Slabinski’s dishonorable actions are only a part of a much larger problem. It was just good therapy. Former US Navy SEAL Mark Bissonnette, the best selling author sellout who wrote “No Easy Day,” the unauthorized (and possibly embellished) story of the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden, is back in the news and back in trouble with the law. Even worse, he’d done so while speaking to the press.

In the view of senior SEAL Team 6 leaders, Slabinski had lied. For 15 years, as SEAL Team 6 senior officers and leaders received reports that their operators were skinning, scalping, canoeing, and otherwise mutilating enemy corpses with custom-made hatchets in Afghanistan and Iraq, they either ignored the warnings or helped cover them up. You’ve closed this ugly part of our command’s history, and everyone gets away with it. “That’s what’s wrong with my community,” a former SEAL Team 6 leader told me last year. Presentations of the Medal of Honor are almost always fraught with questions about whether the awards are handed out to make those involved in operations feel better about a loss of life.

Terms of Use The mission was part of the U.S. military’s Operation Anaconda, a multi-day effort to squeeze out and kill the last large group of Al Qaeda militants and Taliban fighters hiding in the valley. I love Marines…,” he wrote in another tweet in which he shared an article in The Post — and also claimed his wife was the one who deleted his offending post. The ability to control my emotions and my actions, regardless of circumstance, sets me apart from other men. For almost four years after Roberts Ridge, SEAL Team 6 intentionally limited Slabinski’s battlefield exposure. By awarding both Chapman and Slabinski the Medal of Honor, the Pentagon presents an impossible version of what happened on Roberts Ridge. His name was added to SEAL Team 6’s “rock of shame,” an unofficial list of pariahs from the famed unit, the outlet said. “We’re aware of this customer’s tweet and are reviewing this event.

I have an extensive background in the Special Operations community and I know that every one of us signs non-disclosure agreements in which we pledge to maintain the integrity of the information we gain access to as part of our official duties. In late 2007, members of Blue Squadron were twice investigated by Naval Criminal Investigative Service and JSOC. From practically the moment Slabinski and his team returned to Bagram Air Base, others in the special operations community questioned whether he had erred in his assessment that Chapman was dead and retreated with a member of his team still alive. Inside the secret world of what the military refers to as a “Tier 1” unit, however, Slabinski is part of another legacy, one which also stems from what happened during Roberts Ridge. © 2020 NYP Holdings, Inc.

From their perspective, Szymanski had willingly requested a suspected war criminal to be his senior noncommissioned officer. After Roberts’s body was recovered, the military determined that he had been mutilated, a horrific act that led SEAL Team 6 operators to engage in a cycle of vengeance against enemy fighters in both Afghanistan and Iraq.

He clearly has a history of using his SEAL-ness for personal gain; that is illegal, immoral, unethical, and a slap in the face of every man and woman who jocks up every night and goes out to do their job, and doesn’t come home to write a tell-all book about it.

Naval Special Warfare has consistently stated that the allegations against Slabinski and SEAL Team 6 are “unfounded,” and that each has been “previously investigated and determined to be not substantiated.” Despite months of my repeated inquires to SEAL Team 6 and Naval Special Warfare, no one would answer a simple question: If no crimes had been committed, why bar Slabinski from SEAL Team 6?
