It appears that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is looking to send some of its military members to U.S. Navy SEAL training (BUD/S) and they are really shooting for the moon in terms of seeking out former U.S. Navy SEALs to prepare them. According to a source familiar with a contract entered into to train the Saudis, the Kingdom has contracted with an American security consulting firm run by a former SEAL admiral, to hire three instructors to help prepare the Saudi candidates for Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) training.
Specifically, the Saudis are looking for a “Senior Instructor” Navy SEAL, who must have 20-plus years of Naval Special Warfare experience, and have been retired less than 5 years. He must also be a “Tier One operator,” meaning that he was assigned to the SEAL’s tier one element, commonly called SEAL Team 6. Bit of overkill, isn’t it, just to prepare someone to go to BUD/S?
The Saudis are also looking for an “Assistant Instructor,” Navy SEAL, with no less than six years of active duty service, and who also has been retired less than 5 years. This position is “Tier One preferred,” as well. Jesus, fellas, you really want to prepare these guys, don’t you?
Finally, a “Special Operations Medic Instructor” is being sought, who needs only an 18-D equivalent qualification (a special operations medic from either the Air Force, Navy, or Army special operations), and who is, again, “Tier One preferred.” He must also have the same years of service and retirement date prerequisite as the assistant instructor position. I wonder if the Saudis plan to hurt their guys as they prepare them for BUD/S, and thus need a medic? Curious.
The three contractors would be based in Saudi Arabia, for at least one year, presumably the whole time helping prepare Saudi commandos to go to BUD/S. Now, it is not uncommon for foreign militaries to send a few personnel to BUD/S now and again, to see if they can make it through and return home having completed the toughest military training in the world. That’s not really the issue here. The Saudis wanting to send people to BUD/S is pretty routine, actually.
The odd thing here is why they are requiring “Tier One operators” to train their people to go to basic SEAL training? The “B” in BUD/S stands for ‘Basic,’ after all, meaning that BUD/S is entry-level SEAL training. It has nothing to do with operations at the strategic, or national-level. No one needs SEAL Team 6 SEALs — and ones with 20-plus years of experience — to train them to go to BUD/S. Yes, they would clearly be sufficient to do the training, surely, but in no way are they necessary to prepare someone for the training.
In fact, the absolute best person to train someone to go to BUD/S would be a successful BUD/S graduate who had completed the course within the last 5 years. Why wasn’t that the contract qualification? Why require someone who has — by definition — been out of BUD/S for at least 5 years, and possibly as many as 20? There is some kind of disconnect there.
Now, I am not trying to spin up some conspiracy theory, or to imply that the Saudis are really looking for contractors to do something altogether different than preparing Saudis for BUD/S. All I am saying is, they are either being completely naive, and falling prey to the mystique of needing a “Tier One operator” to teach their guys basic stuff, and are thus willing to shell out a ton of money for it; or, they are cloaking this contract request in seemingly innocuous language, and have other plans in mind for the contractors. Honestly, either scenario is completely plausible.

Best Way to Get Your Ex Lover Back Fast Even If Your Situation Seems Hopeless!. I just got my husband back through the help of genuine love spell caster Lord Zuma. My name is Emily Sarah am from Tx,USA. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called Lord Zuma, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 12 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 12 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. thanks to Lord Zuma . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Lord Zuma for help now..

Saudi military seriously sucks at tactics they’re clearly planning to train them for more than buds but too embarrassed to say it that’s it

Super Secret Comment Operator says
I love how there are people passing along “secret codes” in the comment section of a civilian website about the US military.
“David” is a schizophrenic shut-in or someone with such a boring life that they have to LARP as former military/IC on an anonymous website.
Almighty Almighty says
Remember the USS Liberty!
They want their own Seal team 6 for precision infiltration strikes or abductions. In and out done.
The Top Tiers will train for Buds school while weeding out flunkies. Picking the best people for a few Saudi Sand Team 6 teams . Aloha 1 , Bravo 1 .
We already have that it’s called special forces they are basically seals and already abducted multiple terrorist leaders in minutes and got out. They need the navy seals to train the land forces which suck at basic tactics
Interesting article Fru. Definitely something to think about. I’m wondering how many Tier 1 Admirals are out there. You’d think a former BUD/S instructor would be ideal.
I can think of 3 off the top of my head but it sounds like they are describing 1 of them in particular.

The information you posted has really perked my interest.
Gary, please pass on the encryption jacket if you get a response…
Eric Rawlings says
Let them train their own. Don’t trust them.
I agree I woulsnt trust them
I wouldn’t trust them, either. (10 year Navy Vet.)
John Hughes says
Guys I wouldn’t worry either way. They could take BUDS all they want. The new face of warfare won’t be fought on foot anyway. It will be won by the tribe that has the most technologically advanced toys.
Roger Blaise Fournier says
I don’t like the idea either…let them train their own people.
This isn’t new…I mean in this case they’re looking for Top talent to train these guys but I remember when I was in Boot Camp and 75 we had Iranian sailors there that we were training actually going to Boot Camp
Don’t even bother training them. I don’t trust them.
PO2 Anderson says
I don’t like the idea of a Saudi taking BUD/S training. PO2 ANDERSON
Or maybe they are interested in collecting info on Tier 1 organizations and BUD/S instructor is a cover for action to get them there. Similar scenarios have occurred with other SOF units in the past several years, especially with non FVEY/non-NATO countries that we still have a good relationship with when it comes to rogue actors in the Middle East…hint hint*
