As the rhetoric heats up between the U.S. and North Korea Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un, many media outlets are claiming sources have confirmed Navy SEAL Team 6 are preparing to ‘take out’ Kim Jong-un.

Media outlets in South Korea are claiming that the elite SEAL Team 6 team, which took out Osama bin Laden, is intensely preparing for a potential attack on Kim Jong-un.

The Sun reported:

Seal Team Six is taking part in secretive drills alongside other elite US forces in South Korea amid rising tensions with Pyongyang, reports.

US military officials confirmed “ground, air, naval and special operations” are taking part in “several joint and combined field training operations” which involve up to 17,000 troops.

And South Korean newspaper JoongAng Daily has claimed the teams would take part in a drill to simulate the removal of Kim Jong-un.

But US officials denied the elite troopers are preparing a raid to take out Kim.

RightWingNews says “do you really think the military would scream to the world they were about to permanently ‘remove’ the little troll? I don’t think so… I highly doubt this report is true or accurate, but we’ll see. This is the famous military special ops unit that took out Osama bin Laden.”
