'SEAL Dog6' Speaks, One Tweet At A Time

He's profane. Certainly not politically correct. And often pretty funny.

Borrowing a page from , someone has gone on Twitter as , the canine commando who was part of the raid on al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden's compound.

We can't pass along some of his tweets in this family-friendly blog, but here are some lines you might find funny:

-- "To be honest, I am a little embarrassed by the publicity. Oh, hello cat...gotta run."

-- "Let me just say it's a damn shame that I can fight the worst terrorist but can't buy a beer. No ID."

-- "If I ride this popularity right and become FB friends with Paris Hilton, maybe she'll adopt me."

-- "BRB, gotta go for a walk, if you catch my drift..."

Update at 12:10 p.m. ET: Slate says it has revealed "the Pentagon's top-secret feline special-operations program." And it has a purrfectly appropriate slideshow that "proves" its discovery.
