Navy Seals: What Makes Them Special Forces?
It's the stuff of history, even legend. The finding and killing of bin Laden this week by a team of Navy Seals was like something out of an epic movie.

ALISON ST. JOHN: It's the stuff of history… even legend. The finding and killing of bin Laden this week was like something out of an epic movie -- the bad guy meets his fate. Some argue whether it was meting out justice or revenge, but either way it's appropriate that it was at the hands of American Special Forces: Navy Seal Team 6, no less.

We're going to talk about the role of Special Operation Forces in the world today..

GUESTS: Tony Perry, San Diego bureau chief, Los Angeles Times

Kent Davy, editor, North County Times
