How Badass are the SEALs? This Badass

Navy SEALS: is there anything they can't do?

A team of Navy SEALs seized control of an oil tanker from Libyan rebels, the Pentagon announced early Monday....

"No one was hurt tonight when U.S. forces, at the request of both the Libyan and Cypriot governments, boarded and took control of the commercial tanker Morning Glory, a stateless vessel seized earlier this month by three armed Libyans, said Kirby in a statement.

"The boarding operation, approved by President Obama and conducted just after 10 p.m. EDT on March 16 in international waters southeast of Cypress, was executed by a team of U.S. Navy SEALs attached to Special Operations Command Europe, he added.

4 "No one was hurt tonight"
Does that mean "no good guys were hurt" or that "no bad guys were hurt much?"
