I got it.

Anyway, I am a little surprised to see the special forces guys being so nonchalant about breaking their secrecy mandate - the Seals I worked with in the USN were majorly professional and by-the-book.

Attitude comes from the top down.

James Woods: Oh that's fun. That sounds like you had a fun time. Where would I fit in with the fun time, huh? Where does James Woods fit into the fun?

With great power comes great responsibility. While they might be better off acting like robots, I'm glad they don't. Robots would kill every last one of you without thinking if their masters ordered it.


Call it "operating like robots" if you like; people join the military with the understanding that you are going to be expected to follow orders. The soldier is allowed and in fact obligated to think for themselves if the orders are egregious (hence the "just following orders" defense did not work at Nuremberg), but there is a good reason for the secrecy mandate which should be self-evident and is not such an instance.

Well it is hard to say if he's right or not, but the whole OBL event does have a certain stink to it.

This game is more sci-fi future fantasy than black-ops II, oh no the enemy might find out we have regenerative health and the ability to see through walls at will - those aren't just ordinary sun glasses spec-ops are wearing.
