Navy SEALs to slash number of platoons by 30 per cent and introduce new screening processes--

• by AP

Navy special forces will return to their 'maritime roots', officials said

The new plan cuts the number of SEAL platoons by as much as 30%

The platoons will increase in size to make them more lethal and able to counter sophisticated maritime threats 

Decreasing the number of units will allow top brass to rid the force of toxic leaders and be more selective in choosing commanders 

There will be a new, intensive screening process to get higher-quality leaders 

SEALs have recently been rocked by a series of scandals involving charges of murder, sexual assault and drug use
