Fake Teen Navy SEAL Rescued In Yemen By Real Navy SEALs Pte Bloggins May 25, 2012 Navy 56 Comments Follow Duffel Blog: SAN DIEGO, CA – Local teenager Travis Munroe is safe and back with his family today after being rescued by a platoon of Navy SEALs. Munroe, 17, was kidnapped months ago from his suburban home by an al Qaeda cell, and later shown in a terrorist propaganda video release out of Yemen. Army Col. Giles Davies of United States Special Operations Command spoke with TDB about the rescue: “We are pleased to report the mission was a complete success for the SEALs. We recovered Mr Munroe along with the 3 terrorists guarding him. It was evident after his rescue that he had been extensively tortured by the terrorists, who were attempting to glean information about the unit they thought he was a member of. It seems that they confused his ignorance and claims to the contrary as resistance to their interrogation.” The bizarre kidnapping came as a surprise for authorities who spent weeks attempting to discover the terrorists’ motives. The 17-year old McDonalds Fry Cook didn’t seem like a worthwhile target for an international terrorist organization. The most ‘combat’ he had seen was on Call of Duty and in Airsoft matches. Naval Intelligence found the connection after stumbling upon Munroe’s Facebook profile. “When we checked Mr. Munroe’s Facebook, we discovered an extensively crafted profile outlining him as being a member of the dissolved SEAL Team Six,” said Lt. Cmdr. Charles Aimes. “It even came with a full set of pictures including one fast-roping out of a Blackhawk helicopter, which on closer observation was actually him sliding down a playground fire pole in air soft garb with a Blackhawk photoshopped into the background. It would have had even me convinced except for that fact that I know that no real Navy SEAL is fucking dumb enough to put this on Facebook.” The irony of the incident is not lost on the SEALs who rescued Travis, as some have commented on condition of anonymity. “These shit-brained keyboard commandos think it’s really cool and bad-ass to act like special operations forces,” said Chief John, “They don’t seem to be down with fucking reality where terrorists are actively trying to carry out reprisals against us.” “It probably seemed like all fun and games for him in Call Of Duty,” said Team Commander Lt. Andy, “Though shit gets real pretty fucking fast when some asshole goes to clamp a pair of booster cables to your junk… Kid was special ops all right. Rode the god-damn short C-130 to work.” Don't miss the next story.Get the latest news and alerts from Duffel Blog delivered to your inbox—free.

I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue.

Keyboard commandos getting what they deserve for faking the funk. This article reminds me of a few people in the NJ Airsoft community that need a heavy dose of reality check shoved down their throat. Pa Lew says: December 15, 2013 at 6:18 PM I’m going to use the term “Keyboard Commando” every time I hear about kids and loser adults talking about which weapon is better, etc. Mike Lowe says: December 15, 2013 at 6:18 PM It’s quite amusing how many people actually think TDB articles are legit. Fucknuts. Scott V Reapray says: December 15, 2013 at 6:18 PM “Kid was special ops all right. Rode the god-damn short C-130 to work.”. That is fucking, priceless. Alex Danger Thompson says: December 15, 2013 at 6:18 PM I come for the articles, but I stay for the retarded comments from people who don’t realize it’s a joke… Cory Ferrier says: December 15, 2013 at 6:18 PM This is fake as fuck. Here’s what this is: It is an opinion article in the form of the news story. I know this for a few reasons: 1. No officer or member of any branch of the military would talk like that when giving an official interview about a kid messing up and being tortured. 2. Terrorists may be evil, but they are not stupid, they know the difference between an adult service person and a 17 year old kid. 3. How the hell did terrorists sneak INTO the United States then steal a kid. 4. Do a search for Travis Munroe on google, and filter it to be recent results only. The only article you will get on it is this one. 5. Terrorists would have no motivation to steal a random SEAL living the United States 6. No sources cited whatsoever.

The articles are kinda professional trolling bait, so let them work their magic! havoc1967 says: July 31, 2012 at 3:21 PM I don’t know what’s more hysterical? These great articles, or some of the morons who comment on them that clearly don’t know they are satire skapunkfoo says: August 24, 2012 at 6:34 AM im with you havoc, i think reading some of the comments these retards leave is just as much entertainment as reading the articles. cowboy67 says: June 19, 2012 at 8:42 AM WOW DEA…Are you really that stupid? You do understand that this website is supposed to be humorous don’t you? This isn’t a real story, so lighten the F UP!! DEA says: June 15, 2012 at 12:28 PM Give the kid a break. No NAVY Seal ever did any shit brained stuff. They were born with a snake in both of their fists. There are other special forces who don’t have a fucking movie promoting themselves and a PR person making sure everybody knows what they do. They don’t exist. Job well done is reward enough. Get off your fucking high horses. Your kids are neglected and smegma brained. You think it’s professional to talk about a kid this way? Maybe Photoshop and Video games should be outlawed., in your communist fascist state. Jesus motherfucking Christ. Win the war or whatever. The Bear says: June 24, 2012 at 1:53 PM You’re not a particularly great example for how to do it right either. You can’t even detect humor when it screams into your face. Pits and Shagrins says: July 20, 2012 at 6:04 PM DEA, aka Dumb Egocentric Asshole, please reach down between your legs, grab ahold of that large, hairy object, no, the other one, and pull your head out of your ass!!!!! Good lord nutjob!! Take a breath and get some fresh air!! CPT 2003 says: September 4, 2012 at 7:24 AM bwahahahahahaha! havoc1967 says: July 31, 2012 at 3:21 PM Wow. Just…….wow.
