Use Special Ops wisely

 

What is our government doing? Why are our Special Ops teams rescuing civilians (not government employees) from Afghanistan and Somalia and leaving U.S. Army PFC Bowe Bergdahl in a prisoner of war camp for 18 months?

I cannot believe that our government would leave him there for 18 months. Also, I cannot believe that our government would watch an ambassador and a U.S. compound get overrun and killed. The reason: Keep other troops out of harm’s way.

These Special Ops men are trained just for this type of fighting. Using drones, missiles and Special Operations teams, we can get anyone anywhere. This is what they do, and are the best in the world.

No more rescuing nongovernment employee civilians. I was assigned to a Special-Ops command in Vietnam and know just how good these men are.
