Never forget what happened.
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that America would turn its back on our heroes in trouble and asking for a little help. Yeah, Osama bin Laden is dead, two U.S. Navy SEALS are too. Joey the Buffoon Biden needs to start preaching that at his ‘RAT freak shows.
Well - it WILL never be forgotten!!!
Those SEALs were order three times not to assist. They violated their orders, risking and losing thir lives. But they saved 30 others that night.
Everyone else followed their orders that night. They wouldn’t risk their career or a courts martial to help Americans in the fight of their lives. Those SEALs were OUR men. Their commanders, right up to the president all showed themselves to be cowards of one kind or another. Nobody would risk themselves to do what was right.
If those men acted like their entire chain, 30 more would have died.
Do you remember Les Aspen and Black Hawk down?
Panetta is his twin brother separated by a few years.
If you hate the military (as Obama does) a few dead military heroes are nothing. His ultimate wet dream would be that the military would just go away.
You got that right. I can’t wait until November 6th. I hope my gut feeling is right. He’ll finally be gone and the nightmare will be over for all of us.
A few years ago I saw a program, maybe a travel program but it could have been on “The History Channel”.
Anyway it was a WWI monument and cemetery in a small town in France which said “America Will Never Forget What You Did Here”. I thought to myself that I had never heard of that battle and that America has already forgotten what those brave men did there.
I just want it to be known that this CIC is a Traitor!
I will never forget and unlike those better than I, I cannot “Forgive”
In simplest terms, Obama ordered they not be helped.
The order went down the chain, and everyone obeyed it.
Only the very bottom of the chain disobeyed, and did what they knew was right.
And the senior levels who know EXACTLY what Obama did are all remaining silent. Panetta, Petraeus, and some lesser nomenclatura.
They are Hero’s of the finest degree!
I can’t help but thinking about the prolonged nature of this firefight.. A SEAL bleeding all over a machine gun while struggling to keep the bad guys at bay. The feeling of desperation, for hours on end.. Waiting, but knowing his comrades would arrive. His final thoughts and the realization that 0bama as his Commander-In-Chief is a misfortune of epic proportions. Truly sad that the ones ignoring their orders to stand down are the only REAL Americans in their immediate chain of Command right up to the top.
A true shame!
Not just two Navy SEALS died because of Obama; don't forget the members of Seal Team 6 whose helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan three months after they killed Osama bin Laden.
I agree 100%.
A brilliant Freeper made a post the other day that is worth repeating (but, I paraphrase):
Bath-House Barry isn’t worthy of licking the SEAL’s boots.
Heartbreaking to think of them out there. After 4 or 5 hours i doubt that had any water left, if they even started with any. They had to be low on ammo. They had to be thinking if they could make it till daylight,, just a few more hours. They had to be thinking that SOMETHING was being organized to come to their aid.
They had to be thinkin that SOMEONE was organizing a react force.
I just hope they never were straight out told they had been abandoned. This is the worst thing that can ever be done to fighting men. Deliberately refusing supporting arms to men in a firefight is the ultimate treason.
And remember, that was the rule that Petraeus personally introduced in Afghanistan.
On August 1, 2010, Petraeus issued his updated Tactical Directive.
“Prior to the use of fires, the commander approving the strike must determine that no civilians are present. If unable to assess the risk of civilian presence, fires are prohibited, except under of the following two conditions (specific conditions deleted due to operational security; however, they have to do with the risk to ISAF and Afghan forces)”
Leaving men to their own luck is the new normal for our senior leaders. I have no idea why we buy 155 howitzers anymore.
