From the article:
He added that being a SEAL is not just about physical strength. "I don't think the idea is to select G.I. Jane and put her through SEAL training, but there are a number of things that a man and a woman can do together that two guys can't," said Olson. "I don't think it's as important that they can do a lot of push-ups. I think it's much more important what they're made of and whether or not they have the courage and the intellectual agility to do that."

Sounds like ADM Olson is already starting the set-up for there to be different standards for men and women.

No shit Sherlock, on the serious side you have other "departments" that could already supply trained woman to do that and they might have a bit more training in other useful things.

:rolleyes:

Considering how many misspellings I found in a quick read of the article, what do you wanna bet there are misquotes also?
