There is a unwritten rule. It doesn't matter if its the AF PJs, Marine Force Recon, Army Rangers, Green Berets, or Navy SEALs. We never divuldge the nature of our work, the places we've been, the things we've done or those we served with. We don't put each other or our families in danger. And we never profit off the death of others whether it is the targets or the brothers we lost.
Its not politics. You know I'm not a big fan of the current administration. Even if this was an attempt to discredit them and directly cost Obama the election, I still wouldn't support this.
We work best when we work in secrecy and when the enemy doesn't know the full range of our capability. This book may not have violated any law, but it violates a code of ethics we all agreed to and that exists for our mutual benefit and safety.
