Navy SEAL chief Bill McRaven warned to keep operations secret Mail Online
The commander of the Navy SEALs raids which killed Osama bin Laden and rescued hostage Jessica Buchanan has been berated by a retired Lt General for publicising such operations - and putting future deployments at risk.
Admiral Bill McRaven, who led the bin Laden raid and heads the U.S. Special Operations Command, was told by retired Army Lieutenant General James Vaught to 'get the hell out of the media' to safeguard the secrets and security of special operations.
According to ABC News, Vaught told McRaven: 'Since the time when your wonderful team went and drug bin Laden out and got rid of him, and more recently when you went down and rescued the group in Somalia, or wherever the hell they were, they’ve been splashing all of this all over the media.
'I flat don’t understand that.'
