VERY very rare to see 160th vids on youtube....that place is usually locked up tighter than a drum. I wouldn't be surprised to see this vid come down in the next few weeks. Although, they consider anything older than 3 years to be OK....within reason. If you notice in all my vids on youtube, you'll never see an operator's face. Just unspoken trust...no need to be showing their faces.

Must be a TST being a daytime hit like that....yep, hostage takedown. About 90% of the hits we did were at 2am. Nighttime is your friend, but in a case like this, you gotta go when the iron is hot.

If I was that operator in the last picture, I'd want this thing off youtube QUICKLY.

We were flying joint hits with TF, but I won't post any of those vids.

Naa....if it's out there, it's public domain. Like I said, it will probably be down in a few days. I'm going to save it in my favorites to follow the comments.

There is a vid on Youtube which shows a promo for Task for Delta, aka Delta Force. My current CO was enlisted Military Intel that was attached to them, he recognized many of the faces from the vid. Some of the stories that he shares could only have come from someone who had been there. I think with the current GWOT, the public is becoming more accustomed to seeing our special operations in action. The current book out, Lone Survivor, details the heroic actions of a SEAL team in action in Afghanistan, disclosing many of the tactics and training they use. Same with another book I just was looking at, (can't remember the name), but it walks the reader through a current making of a Special Forces Soldier and some of the operations (to include pics) they participated in.

I agree with maintaining OPSEC for missions yet to take place, but after they are complete I think showing the ass kicking footage isn't a problem.

Thanks for the response Knee, I'm always in two minds about showing this stuff or even talking about things related. I must check out the book and if you remember the other book let me know

That Delta video absolutely blows me away. The government still won't admit they exist, and now they're putting vids of themselves on Youtube. WOW.

Sorry, but I tend to be on the safe side of the OPSEC coin. Doesn't matter if the mission alread happened, so long as those guys are operators, they're still at high risk of capture. ANYONE can look at Youtube, and that's just what these guys need is a hadji recognizing one of them from an online video. Hadji ain't as stupid as everyone likes to think he is...I've met some of the smarter ones. They do their homework. I made sure not to post helo vids until after my squadron shut down, and if I ever go back to that community, I'll disable my Youtube account. Call me paranoid, but better safe than sorry....can't fault me for that.

If you watch the union tribune interview that I did, I made very sure not to mention locations and capabilities. Just not something they need to know. I was actually rather vague....for a reason.

Anyway, guess it all comes down to personal opinion, as usual. Just because a video is 3 years old, if it shows the faces of operators that are still operating in county, they are putting themselves in unnecessary danger.

Just my humble opinion

Mark, I totally hear ya man.

Your opinion is more than valid. I wish I could find a video about Ranger school, because I'll be there in a couple months and can only imagine the pain and suffering that I'll be going through. Indeed, life will suck.

they did the same thing with the new navy uniform....junior enlisted will now be wearing a khaki shirt and black pants....the dumbest combo i've ever seen. khakis have always been reserved for chiefs and officers, and now everyone is going to wear them.

weak.
