If this doesn’t warrant literal pitchforks and torches in Washington, I don’t know what would. Make good use of town hall season and rub your Congresscritter’s nose in it.
Aktuallie, no-it-alls r a more bigger part of tha problum.
I pray you are right.
Why are the SEALS treated as the only ones that died?
“It was an ambush. I wonder who set them up.”
That’s what happened to my son and three others. I’m still wondering.
After our “President” has been negotiating with the Muslim Brotherhood...
Our military wouldn’t, be we have people that are capable. (Not infering that they did)
The shootdown of Yamamoto’s airplane was a SIGINT coup.
Plausible denial. . .
Guess the libs in all the major cities will be out tomorrow with huge 100,000 anti-war demonstrations and the usual Obama mustache signs and banners, "Obama lied, People died", etc. Be sure and take pics and videos.
Is this part of the budget cuts?
Because, as of right, now they are the only ones we know of who died on the chopper. When the others are known they will get attention as well. The timing of this is a tad suspicious, though. It reeks of a set-up.
It would be very interesting to know how often:
- Seals special Ops have so many troops together in one aircraft. That seems fishy to me.
- Seals special Ops participate in combined arms ops inside an aircraft with foreign military. That seems fishy to me.
I cant help but wonder if when they took off, those guys looked around inside the aircraft and thought to themselves - ‘oh shit we are set up for an ambush...we’re screwed’. I’m guessing it crossed the minds in at least a few of thesewar saavy vets. I also wonder if any of them or their commanders spoke up and argued against this mission, Of course we’ll never know, but I have to believe there were at least a few people that didnt like the way it was setting up.
Finally, there’s this little annoying debt crises and credit rating issue. Sure seems handy that will be off the first story for a little while because of this tragedy.
I’m telling you. Words cannot express the disdain and real hatred I have for this filthy Kenyan intruder and his country destroying minions.
Every last one of them should be removed. from office.
(politically. of. course.)
We need to get out of that hell hole and let them kill each other off
What is Obama covering up? Why did he order this?
We need to get out of that hell hole and let them kill each other off.
First...G-d comfort their families, and may the fallen Rest in His Peace. This is beyond heartbreaking.
I don’t know why, but I felt the need to visit the DUmp. They have a thread on this as well. What stuns me is over there they are questioning the “coincidence” as much as we are here.
May G-d help us all...as many seem to have the same gut level suspicions.
This is terrible news! I’m with others, in that it seems like it was some kind of set-up. I do understand that things happen in war and the bad guys are trying to win as well, but this seems way too convenient. I just hope that they’ve had the chance to tell the story of what really happened in the OBL raid and that it isn’t gone forever. A very sad day for the USA.
Did you mean capisce?
I try not to give too much credence to conspiracy theories, and I really hate where my mind is going on this. I *hope* it's a tragic coincidence . (Of course, any service deaths are tragic.) But in any case, November 2012 can't get here too soon.
Your wondering has ring of an actual possibility, though I have no doubt if zer0 could, zer0 would for his birthday present. The same with all the moles in the department of state. No doubt here. Wish I had proof. Moslem Brotherhood is now recognized by our nation, thanks to recent efforts of zer0 and state. An unwise move, bringing in more moles to our government from the cult of hate ... imho
WHAT????? YEah sounds too much like the Polish Government to me. For those that don’t know, that’s about like losing a company of regular soldiers.
The day the military burned the Bibles to appease the Muslims was the day I realized we had lost this war.
We are not fighting FOR anything in Afghanistan. We may be fighting against some insurgents, but in the end (and not too distant future) Afghanistan will once again be ruled by Islamists that hate America. Right now it is ruled by Islamists that tolerate America (as long as we don't bring our bibles or our beer).
This makes me sick to my stomach.
And, yes, politically, of course.
Lord, have mercy.
Bring ‘em all home now!
As far as foreign troops, that's pretty much standard practice these days, bringing along ANP or ANA along with the missions. It's as dicey and double edged an option as it sounds, but it's very normal.
No. Count on it. Those guys don’t spill beans.
Obama, get the job done!
Osprey or Chinook?
I want 2 know where most of the blast residue is —outside or inside skin..?
How many ANA were on-board?
"Too many people in too many places are talking too much about this operation," Gates said, adding that the level of disclosures and blabbing violates an agreement reached in the White House Situation Room on May 8 to keep details of the raid private.
"That lasted about 15 hours," Gates said sourly.
The cascade of details surfacing about the highly classified event makes similar operations in the future "that much more difficult and riskier," Gates told reporters at a Pentagon briefing Wednesday.
"It is time to stop talking," agreed Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In a pointed directive to officials, politicians and the retired military officers often featured on cable news programs, he added, "Get off the net."
Members of the Navy SEAL team that tore into bin Ladens compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan and killed the 9/11 mastermind had expressed concern to Gates about the safety of their families after the team had been identified publicly and officials from the White House, the Pentagon and Congress widely discussed the operation.
Hail to the yes. Ever watched that reality show on the Basic Underwater Demolition School? It isn’t like they can just train more - it’s HARD to find men who can become SEALs, even among the cream of the crop.
I might have, never seen it spelled that way, but it looks legit..........
You were all great men. Go with God.
>>>>This is simply getting rid of the hit man, so they can never tell who they killed and what went down.<<<<
I hope the rest of em take the same attitude as the Marines did after the Fallujah incident...no prisoners!
What the hell were these people doing anywhere near Pakistan. They should’ve been home with their families on indefinite leave, if only as a security precaution.
This is awful on multiple levels.
Yep... and nobody will EVER convince me this was a coincidental accident. NEVER!
God rest your son’s soul.
Exactly.... we need to get out of the middle east and let then to their impoverished lives.. what fool thinks democracy will work there??
There are no words to describe the sorrow for the blood of husbands, fathers, sons, mothers, uncles, daughters and aunts, that this corrupt government has sacrificed for power and failure. They have ruined our country and taken lives for absolutely nothing.
Each and every person in this administration, Congress, and all of those that are running things now, should feel profound shame for what they have done.
I feel nothing but disgust and revulsion at our government.
I don’t know how they look at themselves in the mirror as the day closes for the crimes thay have committed against the American people.
I hope God exacts his toll from all of them.
Huma has been talking to her family.
Hopefully all our Soldiers, Marines, Pilots and Sailors will lock and load and get ready to do what needs doing...(but of course our civilian (mostly Democratic) leaders will not allow this.)
Special prayers for those who lost their lives today. My deepest condolences to their families and friends.
Prayers for all our Soldiers, Marines, Sailors and Pilots. You are our very best of the best.
Didn’t Panetta say last week that Al Qaeda was non-existent??
Irony is so...ironic.
BTW, I love your tagline.
RIP to the troops, and condolences to their families
Why even reveal that? Dumb move.
How many people have to die just for Obama to get a small temporary bounce (and to bury the issue of him releasing a forged birth certificate)? How long before the entire nation realizes that this illegal coup by Obama is costing us dearly in the most precious resources we have?
>> Obama should have just shut the F up when they killed Bin Laden, but NOOOOO, he had to have his victory lap.
