It sounds like they may have been on their way to a mission, wonder if it is normal procedure for them to all travel together.

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.

I am pissed more than demoralized. My fellow citizens who vote the Dems in demoralize me.

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.

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.

Time for real Shock and Awe in Afghanistan. No quarter!

Obama, get the job done!

To what purpose? There is no "good" side, only Muslims who are against everything we stand for and who hate us. Should we kill the entire population?

Let them live in the cesspool they're used to. Let them kill each other, which is what they've been doing for centuries. Bring our brave soldiers home.

What the hell were these people doing anywhere near Pakistan? They should’ve been home with their families on indefinite leave ...

Exactly. And as pointed out elsewhere, why in the hell are 31 special forces in one single helicopter?! This all stinks to high heaven.

I sense, for the first time ever, conservatives will be on the same side of an issue as Code Pink over this. Or Jodie Evans and her little band of sisters will forever surrender their right to exist.

Bring our men home now [following a 'shock and awe' retalitory strike] instead of leaving them there with there hands tied behind their backs by this usurper-in-chief.

10 years we've been at war with these primitives, and they haven't managed to do anything on this scale. And to think: the first time and they take out so many witnesses to Osama's execution.

Geez, I just forgot all about those bonds being downgraded, too.

Rest in peace, brave warriors. I fear that your kind is very last bastion of hope.

A few years a nephew, now retired CSM, linked me to a USArmy website providing stats on safety issues, injuries/fatalities due to accidental causes, etc., from which it was clear to me that accidents involving helicopters, in training and other routine non-combat ops, as well as crashes in combat zones not directly resulting from enemy action, are responsible for a large number of military fatalities.
Another major cause of deaths among milpers in stateside posts is off-duty motor vehicle crashes, mostly incidental to intemperate use of alcoholic beverages. Even in combat zones, a significant number of fatalities are due to non-enemy-involved accidents or mechanical failures.

This is just too convenient, for my tastes.....

Something is radically wrong. Why would the Pentagon advertise the fact that it was SEAL Team Six that went down ?

This doesn’t make any sense whatsoever....

I agree...a set up. Just like the 7 CIA guys that were killed. Moles....plenty of them.

Sounds like there’s a mole(s) somewhere around HQ . . .

And it happens just the day after US is about changing the conversation. How convenient is that also.

Prayers sent your way. This must be so difficult for you to read and think sympathies.
