Guy is an American hero. I know there are disputes about who fired the shot, but who cares? He was in a mission with a small team that went into Pakistan and killed UBL. I don’t care if he fired the millionth shot.
I spoke to a Special Forces operator a few months back just by chance at a cookout. As some have said, you would have no idea from his demeanor, just an average dude. He mentioned a shooting competition he was going to against the NYPD CTU (?) team that weekend, and while asking him about what team he was on and him hemming and hawing his wife said “he’ll never say it, but he’s a Green Beret”. Asked if he was on an A-Team and she says “he’s a CWO on an A-Team”. Was pretty neat. He’s being deployed shortly.
About the top SOF team, I believe it is called “Combined Applications Group” which is an amalgamation of top operators from all branches (DevGru, Delta, etc), inclusive of CIA and paramilitary. I’m sure others here know better than I do, so take my understanding for what it’s worth.
