Navy SEAL who oversaw the bin Laden raid says China's massive military buildup is a 'holy s---' moment

via Business Insider.
The legendary former Navy SEAL Adm. William McRaven said at an event on Wednesday that China's technical and defense capabilities were quickly approaching — and sometimes surpassing — those of the US, representing what he called a "holy s---" moment for the US.

McRaven, who was the head of Joint Special Operations Command during the 2011 operation on the Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden's Pakistan compound, said at the Council on Foreign Relations event that "we need to make sure that the American public knows that now is the time to do something" about China's rapid developments in research and technology that threaten US national security.

I'm not impressed.

This dude is late to the party and is only latching onto a bandwagon that has left the station years ago.

Legendary?  The author of this piece called him legendary?  Why?  What makes him legendary in the halls of Navy SEAL land?  What did he do that puts him with Navy SEAL greats?

Image over substance.  This bubba is the classic, walking example of image over substance.

Overall?  I'm sensing a move to line himself up with a job in the next administration...the next Dem or non-Trump Republican administration.  If he was serious about the China threat then he would have opened his mouth years ago.  This is just a show.
