These guys are the best of the best of the US military?!

Amazing and hilarious news form the BBC:
The US is to tighten security around the elite military unit that killed Osama Bin Laden, US Defence Secretary Robert Gates has said. Mr Gates revealed that the US Navy Seal team had expressed concerns over their safety and that of their families.
SEAL Team 6
It appears that the "sooper-dooper best of the best" DEVGRU Navy SEAL Team 6 are afraid that somehow 'al-Qaeda' will take revenge on them.  In the USA.  Even though the USA as 16 "intelligence agencies", plenty of Federal, State and local policies agencies, porno-scanning & genital groping TSA thugs, rent-a-cops in most public places and all the protection which the Navy bases offer - the "heroic" SEALs are turning yellow at the thought 'al-Qaeda' punishing them for shooting an unarmed men in front of his family.

They are not alone.

Obama's granny also get special protection now:
Meanwhile, Kenya says it is stepping up security around the home of President Barack Obama's step-grandmother, Sarah Obama, in the wake of Bin Laden's death. "All visitors going to the home will have to be thoroughly vetted," said regional administrator Francis Mutie. "They will undergo security screening before they are cleared to visit the home."
Hilarious as this may be, all this just goes to show that the leaders of the US Empire are paranoid cowards and that their "elite" killers are in reality terrified of those they are supposed to fight.

Yet another example of imperial decline.
