Badasses, Incorporated

We'll probably never learn the identity of the "shooter" who double-tapped Osama bin Laden. But that's how members of SEAL Team Six roll. "These truly are the silent squirrels -- never getting public credit and not caring one whit," remarked Marc Ambinder of the National Journal. However, based on interviews with formal Navy SEALs, the Washington Post provided some clues about the archetype. He is likely between the ages of 26 and 33, a former high school or college athlete, a positive thinker, and someone who “flunked vacation and flunked relaxing.” And, ladies take note, they are perfect physical specimens: “He’ll be ripped. He’s got a lot of upper-body strength. Long arms. Thin waist. Flat tummy.”
