Betrayal of Seal Team 6 Led To Extortion 17 Massacre In Bidenís Benghazi
Flopping Aces ^ | 03-08-19 | Daniel John Sobieski

Posted on 03/08/2019 10:25:22 AM PST by Starman417

Democrat Joe Biden has been lurking in the 2020 presidential shadows being presented by those with their 2020 fingers crossed as an adult in the romper room of pubescent progressives waiting for their Spartacus moments as they learn the complexities of basic math and leadership skills.

Biden was the top choice for 28 percent of likely Democratic primary voters surveyed in a recent University of Massachusetts Amherst poll, despite him not having declared a 2020 presidential bid. Yet while critics of President Trump’s foreign policy accuse him of a degree of recklessness and immaturity that place the nation’s security at risk, Biden’s service in an administration that gave us the criminal negligence and incompetence of Benghazi, provides us with an example of why he should not be trusted with the nation’s security or the lives of its heroes.

As author and attorney David Shestoksas points out in his review of Betrayed: The Shocking The Shocking True Story of Extortion 17 as told by a Navy SEAL's Father, Biden betrayed the heroes that killed Ben Laden to further his political ambitions”:

On May 1, 2011, Aaron Carson Vaughn, member of America’s elite special operations force, Seal Team VI, called his father, Billy Vaughn and exclaimed:

“Dad, we got him!”

The elder Vaughn asked:  “Got who, son?”

Aaron Vaughn replied:  “Who do you think? Go turn on the TV.”[1]

On television shortly thereafter, President Obama declared to the nation that Osama Bin Laden, the mastermind of the deadly attacks of September 11, 2001 was dead.

Vice-President Biden Applauds and Endangers the Seals

Vice-President Joe Biden, at an awards banquet on May 3, 2001,[2] remarked:

“Admiral James Stavridis … can tell you more about … the incredible, the phenomenal, the just almost unbelievable capacity of his Navy SEALs and what they did last Sunday… I’d be remiss also if I didn’t say an extra word about the incredible events, extraordinary events of this past Sunday.  As Vice President of the United States, as an American, I was in absolute awe of the capacity and dedication of the entire team, both the intelligence community, the CIA, the SEALs.” (emphasis added)

Less than a day after Biden’s remarks Aaron Vaughn called his mother Karen:

“There’s chatter and all of our lives are in danger including yours, Mom.”

Three Months Later A Deadly Attack on Seal Team VI

On August 6, 2011, in the Tangi River Valley of Afghanistan, Aaron Vaughn and 30 other Americans,[3] including 15 members of SEAL Team VI[4] were killed when their fifty year old helicopter, designated Extortion 17, was hit by a rocket propelled grenade.

Leon Panetta is one who has taken President Trump to task for his alleged “loose lips”. Panetta himself, it would seem, was also one who needed to be surrounded by adults to keep his loose lips in check, having put the lives of those who took out Osama bin Laden at risk. As Breitbart reported:
Former CIA Director Leon Panetta, for example, told CNN on Tuesday that Trump “cannot just say whatever the hell he wants and expect it doesn’t carry consequences.”

Panetta should know, because it was his loose talk after the Osama bin Laden raid that exposed a Pakistani doctor, Shakil Afridi, who helped locate the Al Qaeda leader.  As a result, Afridi was imprisoned on fabricated charges and will live under fear of assassination for the rest of his life.

As Breitbart News noted in 2013, a Pakistani report on Dr. Afridi reportedly concluded “Dr. Afridi was implicated by a ‘statement by the U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, who was the CIA Director when May 2 happened, confirming the role of Dr. Afridi in making the U.S. assassination mission a success.'”

Panetta did not reveal that critical intelligence in a private meeting with a foreign emissary, but to the entire world, on CBS News’ 60 Minutes.

Then there is Joe Biden, whose loose lips got members of Seal Team 6 targeted for revenge and killed in an Afghan mission known as Extortion 17: As Investor’s Business Daily recounted on May 28, 2013:
Extortion 17 was the call sign of a special operations mission in Afghanistan on Aug. 6, 2011, that responded to an Army Ranger unit engaged in a firefight with the Taliban and in need of backup.

The Chinook helicopter carrying the rescue team was shot down by a Taliban-owned rocket-propelled grenade over the Wardak Province on Aug. 6, 2011, killing 38, including 30 Americans and 15 members of Navy SEAL Team 6, the unit that killed Osama bin Laden just three months prior.

The shoot-down was described at the time as a "lucky shot," but the families of the dead SEALs believe that, like Benghazi, it was a pre-planned operation of revenge facilitated by a government that put them in harm's way without adequate support and with a bull's-eye painted on their backs.

At a Pentagon briefing on Monday, May 2, 2011, a senior defense official was asked if it was a Navy SEAL team that found and killed the world's most wanted man. The terse and proper response was: "Not going to comment on units or numbers."

Then on May 3, Vice President Joe Biden got up to speak at a dinner at Washington's Ritz Carlton Hotel marking the 50th anniversary of the Atlantic Council to spill the beans about Adm. James Stavridis and "the incredible, the phenomenal, the just almost unbelievable capacity of his Navy SEALs and what they did last Sunday."

From that moment, the families believe, the Taliban looked for an opportunity for revenge, and a government more concerned with politically correct rules of engagement than victory helped them get it.

Biden skated on the leak that got SEAL Team 6 targeted for revenge. Those who now condemn Trump for trying to save American and, yes, Russia lives, were silent, especially Leon “loose lips” Panetta. Panetta and Biden, like Hillary Clinton at Benghazi, put lives in jeopardy and got men killed.

You think these modern Democrats give a damn about American military lives? All their professions of love and respect are bald face lies. I know, I’ve seen it up close. Retired Army Field Grade Officer.

SEAL Team 6 was betrayed by glory hogging democrats.
SpecOp activities should never be known.
It would have been better for Osama to just show up dead and nobody knew how or why or any details.

Every single Liberal is an irresponsible blockhead

They have NO business anywhere near authority or responsibility, because they have NO idea what those concepts are.

Idiotic.

First, all this James Bond opsec silliness where they all pretend they are CIA spies doesn’t square with reality. Supposedly it was simply horrific for Biden to say Navy Seals killed Bin Ladin. Yet, the same SEALs whining about that rush to phones there in the war zone, and call mommy and daddy on the phone and say “Dad!! we got him!! Turn on the TV!! But I can’t tell you who, wink wink nudge nudge”.

No, Biden saying it was SEALS that did the mission was not not what killed them. It was the utter incompetence of our senior officers in the theater that saddled the SEALs with utterly idiotic tactics that a 2nd Lt would know to avoid.
You don’t put all the machine guns in one helo... infantry 101.

And the senior leaders Afghanistan tactics were as follows;
Send out a small patrol into hostile areas.
When they draw fire make sure they are hamstrung with rules that if they take fire from a structure, they cannot return fire. Also if the very men they were shooting out exit the building without weapons, they may not be fired upon.
And no CAS or Arty can be used to reduce the enemy machine gun...period.

So the solution is to send in a flying clown car full of extremely expensive SEALs who happen to be a very poor choice to conduct normal infantry fights as a large unit.

When the AC-130 repeatedly requests to shoot at threats in the area they are denied. One goober shoots a RPG at the 47 and blows it up, killing all.

SO what was the concept of this Byzantine plot to get Seal team 6? They decided they would have shoot at some random grunt patrol, and then they knew the flying clown car react force would be Seal team 6, and would all be in one helo, then we hide one dude with an RPG here behind this rock...etc.
Dumb. And lets our senior leaders off the hook for their embarrassingly amateur battlefield tactics.

There are a dozen reasons to laugh Biden right out of the race, such as Ukrainian bribery, feeling up every female he meets, plagarism, general leftism and stupidity, Obamacare etc....but this aint it.

Yep. Sacrificed them as payment for taking out bin Laden, I think.

If that’s the case that nobody should know, maybe SEALS shouldn’t call home on unsecure phones to tell their parents what they just did. After all, If the secret is too cool for you to keep, how the hell do you expect proud mommy and daddy to keep it?

Also, it’s a standing joke in the SOF community that if SEALS are involved in anything the final paragraph of the mission order involves book and movie rights.

Big picture, Aircrews on ferret missions in the 1950s, the SR-71 and U-2 pilots in the 1950s and 60s and guys working on the F-117 in the 70s never called home to tell wives and parents about their recent cool mission. Most of those guys never said -a word- until 4 or 5 decades later.

I grew up in the age when a secret was a secret.
I wish they would instruct our guys to keep their mouths shut .

I think it was a deliberate op by our domestic enemy illegal president to appease his terrorist BFFs, for purportedly killing Obama Bin laden.
