Brandon Webb is a piece of shit

****** has published the helmet cam video of our SF brothers fighting to their deaths in Niger.

There is a lot we can learn from videos like this but they should be viewed in private by operators for training purposes. They should not be released to the families and our enemies for consumption so you can get more clicks on your webpage.

Brandon Webb was a lackluster SEAL with a short career, seeing little to no combat. He is making millions off the SEAL Teams when he carried almost none of the burden.

Brandon Webb should be blacklisted from all SEAL functions and publicly shit out by the community.

I’ve seen the video. This was the most horrific thing I’ve seen in a long time. Someone very close to me also served with two of those guys personally. He was absolutely horrified and even more so, stating that hundreds have demanded for him to take it down and he simply refuses. No family member or loved one, or teammate or any other should have to see that.

Muddy - get yourself vetted by Frog. Your assertion that BW is a POS will take on greater credibility here.

I have not seen the videos. I won't search them out. If true, the dude will have a hard time with all NSW members, not just you Frogs.

Brandon Webb and Jack Murphy are doing quite well for themselves, with or without the respect of the SOF community.

I looked up their website and it appeared to me that they have a somewhat sneering attitude to those who have objected. What a pair of Johnny come lately blotter jockeys. Thanks to the writers of Black Adder

Pretty good take on the recent events w/ ****** on this youtube vid. Their justification for the posting is absolute BS and the fact that they threw their logo on it is an absolute cunt move. Old news by this point tho.

Media needs advertisers and they are no different. The Hurricane group (BW's holding company) needs them and and also publishes their partners on their website. Gerber, Vortex, etc. Write them. They won't want to be associated with this story and the video. I hope BW caves when he realizes it will cost him an airplane.

Jack flatly said they are not apologizing or retracting. Hubris.

Make them famous(er).

How in the world is this video on YouTube. The individuals and the families of the dead diverse more respect then this. I personally would like to know how to get this removed and I hope that the individual that released this can be punished. It is disrespectful and horrid.

Doesn't military censorship prevent/forbid this?

I'm sick to the stomach. RIP Heroes.

What's worse is the original was put out by Daesh....SOFTCRAP put their own watermark on the Daesh video...in effect, they are aiding the enemy by giving its propaganda a wider audience. The idiocy and short-sidedness of that entire group of morons cannot be overstated.

There is a small problem with that, there are multiple videos up. I have flagged as many as I could find but I think more are popping up.

There is a fair amount of anecdotal data to support the idea that Youtube only takes down certain sorts of content after complaints.

If I may...

I posted in the other thread my complaint to YT when I reported the video. Make sure you focus on how it violates their Terms of Use/Community Standards. The video is abhorrent and dishonoring, but YT isn't going to care about the honor part.

Back to my lane.
