The following is a point/counterpoint opinion article discussing the intense debate over the seals. Point: The United States Navy SEALs are the world's premiere fighting force. Nay, we are the most efficient operators the world has ever known. I don't say this with a negative spirit. By arguing this, I am not detracting from the efforts of the Green Berets, Force Recon, or Delta. Each of these groups are populated with earnest and competent fighting men. Yet, it would be foolhardy to not recognize the abilities of the U.S. Navy SEALs.
