Navy Seals killed Osama Bin Laden, Seymour Hersh says, when he was in Pakistani captivity. Like a fish in a barrel. Yet Seal Team Six still manages to hang onto its hero status. What is up with that?

aNewDomain — Journalist Seymour Hersh published a blockbuster expose behind the killing of Osama Bin Laden, which he said turned out to be more like shooting fish in a barrel since Bin Laden was a prisoner of the Pakistanis at the time.

Despite all this, Seal Team Six retains their official status as heroes of the nation.
