2. It's sad that they were killed

As for the accusations at the administration:

1.) They had 3 months to request a reassignment, transfer or honorable discharge.

2.) Not sure how the Taliban would know they were Seal Team 6 from the ground.

3.) They just found out their lives were in danger in Afghanistan? Isn't the possibility of injury or death one of the first things you are informed about when you sign up for the military? So they knew going in to the military it was dangerous and they knew 3 months ahead of time they could be a special target. At that point, that is when they should have reevaluated their priorities. If the "working" conditions had become unacceptable 3 months ago, even a dishonorable discharge, barring all other options, should have been seriously considered.
