Navy SEALs are being told to keep the details to themselves after the famous military special operations group killed Osama bin Laden in an overnight raid in Pakistan early Monday.

The Navy officer in charge of the elite unit told his troops Monday that they should be proud but keep quiet about it. In an email message obtained by The Associated Press, Rear Adm. Ed Winters also says the fight is not over, and sharing too many details can endanger the next operation.

A unit of specially trained SEALS known as SEAL Team 6 stormed a secret compound in Pakistan overnight. The operation involved a small number of U.S. forces and lasted about 40 minutes.

U.S. officials say the SEALs left with bin Laden's body and unspecified evidence gathered at the scene.

    The American people are being prepped for a much bigger war with the announcement of Bin Laden's death. Now Pakistan is gonna be the target, and they will run to their buddies China. All this while the dollar is dying.

    First, The president has no more control over fuel prices than he does over the proce of a loaf of bread. Second, If the predident could control gas prices people like you would surely call him a Communist/Socalist.

    Notice how gas prices skyrocketed right after this? We are all supposed to be so happy that we killed Bin Laden that we don't care about the gas prices going through the roof? Thanks a lot Mr. President. You deserve no credit for the killing of Bin Laden, but you certainly deserve credit for the skyrocketing fuel prices!
