That is a very good point you bring up, Darth Wong
, about the incident/accident related to the botched rescue of Linda Norgrove and for those that may not be familiar with the case I'll post the BBC article about the Wiltshire coroner David Ridley's "narrative verdict".

The circumstances of that action, though, seem to indicate a much more serious firefight than that which occurred in the OBL killing and I have very serious reservations about any "heroic" label being placed upon the OBL killing.
Don't get me wrong, I can't say as I have any negative feelings about that OBL fella getting his butt wasted, but I do take great exception to that mission being called a great mission, let alone labelling it as one of the greatest in United States military history, or whatever that nonsense was -- which I'd rather not have to go back and read the exact phrasing of.
Nope, that kind of rhetoric is from somebody with a "trigger happy" mouth. And it's not the first time.
