This seems super highly unlikely considering the hundreds and even thousands of people that are involved in these types of trips to warzones. They would have known everyone that would be within 100 yards of him and if they were allowed to be public at least a week ago. It even says that it's not always required to have their location secret and the president is allowed to declassify their location at any time.

“Operational security is the most important aspect of personnel deployments. The real names, faces and identities of personnel involved in special operations or activities, are usually a closely held secret in a combat zone,” Nance said. “Revealing them casually, through an unusual media exposure even if it’s the commander in chief, would prove a propaganda boom if any of this personnel are detained by a hostile government or captured by a terrorist group. There would be no denying who you are and what you do.”
