Know about Navy Seal Team Six called as Devgru who killed Osama Bin laden in Pakistan



The United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (NSWDG), commonly known as DEVGRU and informally by its former name SEAL Team Six (ST6) is one of the United States' two secretive Tier One counter-terrorism and Special Mission Units (SMUs); the other such group is 1st SFOD-D (Delta Force).





Such type of Missions are common for Navy Seal Team 6 officially called the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, but known even to the locals at their home base Dam Neck in Virginia as just DevGru.

When SEAL Team Six was first created it was devoted exclusively to counter-terrorism with a worldwide maritime responsibility; its objectives typically included targets such as ships, oil rigs, naval bases, or other civilian or military bases that were accessible from the sea or inland waterways.

DevGru belongs to the Joint Special Operations Command and special-missions units.
Navy Seal Team Six that is Naval Special Warfare Development Group report to the president and operate worldwide based on the legal (or extra-legal) premises of classified presidential directives.
Most JSOC missions never leak.

Several dozen JSOC operatives have died in Pakistan over the past several years.
Their names are released by the Defense Department in the usual manner, but with a cover story generally, they were killed in training accidents in eastern Afghanistan. That’s the code.

JSOC costs the country more than $1 billion annually.
Two other JSOC units, the Technical Application Programs Office and the Aviation Technology Evaluation Group help to regarding radar and intelligence etc technical stuff.
The command now includes more than 4,000 soldiers and civilians. It has its own intelligence division
Under a variety of standing orders, JSOC is involved in more than 50 current operations spanning a dozen countries
Normally they are called as Rangers, Special Forces battalions, SEAL teams, and Air Force special ops units from the larger Special Operations Command, are responsible for most of the “kinetic” action in Afghanistan.

SEAL force just 10 percent are part of SEAL Team 6, the Navy’s counterpart to the Army’s Delta Force
It takes more than three years to train a SEAL at a cost of about $1 million per individual. Sailors can interview for SEAL Team 6 after about five years, and after an additional screening only about 10 percent of applicants make the team
The candidate will usually be in his 30s.
Those who pass the stringent recruitment and selection process will be selected to attend a six- to seven-month Operators Training Course. Candidates will join the unit's training wing known as "Green Team."
The training course attrition rate is extremely high; at least half the class will fail the course. During one selection course, out of the original 20 candidates, only 12 completed the course.All candidates are watched closely by DEVGRU instructors and evaluated on whether they were suitable to join the individual squadrons.

Although the unit was created as a maritime counter-terrorism unit, it has become a multi-functional Special Operations unit with multiple roles that include high-risk personnel/hostage extractions.
Such operations include the failed rescue of Linda Norgrove, the successful rescue of an American businessman, and in 1991 the successful recovery of Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and his family during a coup that deposed him.

On May 1/2 2011, DEVGRU was involved in the operation, codename Geronimo that killed Osama bin Laden at his compound in the affluent suburb of Abottabad, Pakistan.
The team practiced the mission in a segregated section of Camp Alpha at Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan in early April, 2011, using a one-acre replica of bin Laden's compound.

Modified MH-60 helicopters from the U.S. Army's 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, carried Navy SEALs and were supported by other personnel with tactical signals, intelligence collectors, and navigators using highly classified hyper spectral imagers from Ghazi Air Base in Pakistan.

It has been speculated that these helicopters may have spoofed transponder codes and been painted to resemble Pakistan Air Force equipment by other JSOC units, the Technical Application Programs Office and the Aviation Technology Evaluation Group.

Thus Navy Seal Team Six works hard and gives life for America without any credits and without any name to any individual.

One CIA guy can double cross.

Two Muslims are needed for double cross to happen in Islamic nations.

I do not agree with double_crossing.

There has been dereliction of duty on the part of Pakistan and Afghanistan government.
