Navy SEAL Who Shot Bin Laden Identified

by John Reed on May 13, 2011

Ok, not really. But Daily Show and SNL alum (and Lt. Col, USMCR) Rob Riggle is pretty damn funny pretending to be the guy who killed Osama.

Happy Friday!

A Lt with three full stripes ? Think they call that a commander.

Got to meet a few SEALs and UDT in Coronado Island and VN. This certainly is not their behavior. While kind of funny one one level, not sure I like the image it portrays.

Signed,
Getting old prude.

You know it would never happen.
You know the SEALS reputation remains very much intact if not enhanced.
I would like to know if the SEALS would find it funny…probably…funny but dumb!

Not sure this is a good place for vets to post. The kids don't get it.

Lets be professionals and lets be considerate of that operator, think guys. if you were the one who took down OBL not only will you get unwanted attention but some very nasty people will wanna come after you. He did what had to be done. I’ll bet he wishes he was taken alive, it would have been nice. But the fact is, he’s one of us and if anything we have to close ranks and protect him and family. Not just the Navy but the rest of us in uniform, active and retired,. if any damn thing, these so called experts need to join ranks and keep quiet. Lets be united and help him out.

So the uniforms are all jacked up and everyone knows this party would be at McP's, but it's still pretty funny.

Some people take life too seriously, this is obviously just making something light out of all this. Just because you're a veteran doesn't mean you can't find it funny because I know I do.

Not funny. Navy Seal would not do this. Not even close to being funny. Try something else to make a joke out of.

It's interesting but the three of us that are ex-USN are against this, and most of the other posters, who are likely not ex-USN think it's funny.
Very interesting. Something to be said for real world experience.

Lighten up fellas. It was pretty damn funny.

Fun Fact: Rob Riggle is a real life Marine, currently a Lt. Colonel in the Reserves. Joined up in 1990, was deployed to Liberia in 1996, Kosovo in 1999, Ground Zero after 9/11, and Afghanistan in November 2001. Received the Combat Action Ribbon. He's remained in the Marines even though his comedy career was blossoming before 9/11. And now is a notable celeb on the USO tours. He's one of the very good guys.

And to quote Riggle from The Hangover: In the faaaaace!

So nice that they gave him the Army Distinguished Service Cross, that must be hard to get for a SEAL.

Even then I'd be skeptical that it was DEVGRU. They might simply be taking the fall for another clandestine group that did the deed, or they might've flown support aboard the MH-47's. For instance, whos to say the SAD did not conduct this operation? The CIA doesn't always use standard mil-spec equipment: look at the A-12 (precursor to the SR-71).

Alternatively it is overthought and DEVGRU is indeed the group who took out OBL. Regardless, why is this important, and how does AQ think they are going to target Navy SEALs for killing? If they could get guys into Coronado to kill SEALs and their dependents, they could score a equal propaganda victory by attacking people at a shopping mall, a church or a beach.
