It is standard procedure for U.S. special operations units, such as the elite Navy SEALs, to be supplemented by Afghan forces during missions against insurgents in Afghanistan, according to the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force-Afghanistan (ISAF). Such forces were in the helicopter that crashed on Aug. 6, killing 30 U.S. soldiers, most of them SEAL members.U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jimmie Cummings Jr., a spokesman for ISAF, told CNSNews.com in an e-mail today that Afghan forces were in the U.S. helicopter that crashed in eastern Afghanistan on Aug. 6 because the majority of our operations are combined coalition/Afghan missions.

The list, ping

“It is standard procedure for U.S. special operations units, such as the elite Navy SEALs, to be supplemented by Afghan forces during missions against insurgents....”
And we are trying to keep the identities of the Sealteam that allegedly killed OBL a secret, while Afghan forces know exactly who they are?
sounds like someone’s hinting at betrayal here.
This is insane and more of this compassionate winning hearts and minds crapola,getting our best killed wholesale!! some people need to Resign NOW,Infuriating!!!!!!!
I think the Afghan troops on board brought down the chopper.
It seems that Osama bin Ladin got more respect
than the Seal team that was sold out by NATO
and its Ikhwan allies that OBVIOUSLY are on the
side of al Qaeda.
Was their position leaked by NATO?
or the White House and its DNC Islamic links?
IF they were on a “rescue” mission WHY WAS THE CHOPPER STUFFED FULL OF TROOPS.?
The story I read said our guys were pinned down, and this was a load of reinforcements.
I think the Paki's, still chaffing at being left out of the loop, sold us out.
Betrayals are no longer punishable these days.
Any time you feel like you need a good butt whipping, just jump in front of a Seal or any military man when his friends may need his help.
