    The officer who led the army's Delta Force mission to kill Osama bin Laden after 9/11 reveals what really happened in Tora Bora, Afghanistan, when the al-Qaeda leader narrowly escaped. Scott Pelley reports.

    Yes, I just saw this.

    No one know what these guys go through and all the struggle and difficulties.

    "Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph."

    "Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."

    Rough men


    There's a character trait that's decided by fate
    Comes (sadly) to many, far too faint, far too late.
    They won't face the aggressor, stand up to his ire
    They have not the will to fight his fire with fire.
    So they bend over backwards to see all sides as fair,
    Till they're faced with dragon breath fire in their hair.
    Like our brethren in France, who'd know better than we,
    Yet seem never to learn, seem doomed never to see.

    Yes, it seems there are some who're determined by fate,
    To possess not the courage to step up to the plate,
    Who shrink from all threat because nothing's worth war.
    But how can they know lest they've been there before?
    Thank God some have courage, the will, yes, the grace,
    To stand for the shirkers, stand strong in their place.
    Thank God we have stalwarts who'll stand for us all,
    Who will rise to the challenge at their nation's call.

    The faint-hearted, who fear, whose reaction is flight,
    Have no comprehension of those who will fight.
    To hide their own trepidation they attempt to demean
    The rough men, who defend them, as barbaric, obscene.
    Yet these rough men stand ready, hard weapons to hand,
    To put placaters behind them, draw a line in the sand,
    To preserve for the peaceniks what they won't defend,
    So their own unearned freedom won't perish, won't end.

    To appeasers, rough men are coarse government tools.
    To rough men, appeasers are dumb delusional fools.
