With news that information leaks are threatening to reveal the identities the Navy SEALs who served up some just desserts for Osama bin Laden, it's understandable that the top-secret warriors are on edge. What isn't understandable, however, is how the Washington Post seems to be as eager to uncover their identities as our vengeful terrorist enemies in al-Qaeda.
In the Post's latest coverage of the fall of bin Laden, Post writer Fredrick Kunkle traverses Virginia Beach in search of the silent heroes' favorite hangouts, SEALs-spotting hotspots and toils around town looking for clues as to who the mystery men might be.
The Post lists a number of local bars, eateries and even individuals who claim to know tidbits of information on the SEAL team bread crumb trail -- right down to what street they're located on.
Why should al-Qaeda worry about tracking down bin Laden's asssassins when the American media seems all too eager to? It's bad enough that there seem to be members of the current administration's inner circle willing to betray these hardened heroes. Can't we ask for a little more respect for these SEALs' secretive service from the press?
