I never bought the official line. It was all a lie from the get-go. Cell phone cameras are ubiquitous, and someone would have taken a clandestine snapshot for posterity. Plus the death of a large number of Seal team members, the very people who could confirm or deny the official storyline, on a single helicopter in a hot zone in Afghanistan by a single shoulder fired missile, reeks worse than a garbage can of grass clippings in July.
He actually saw the guy who was shot in the head and wrote that after the guy had been "re-engaged" (several shots to the body...killed) he examined him (repositioned his head to different aspects by pulling the "dark" beard and was fairly certain...but he didn't look exactly like the preoperation pictures.
According to the Seal...he was on the Helo that crashed and no one was killed or injured.
Due to lack of space on the remaining Helos the "target" was taken on one evac Helo (somebody had to sit on his body bag) but it was taken away once they landed on their first base and none of the Seal Team 6 saw it again.
Of course it was supposed to have been taken to the USS Vincent...
The Seal Team has no information after they landed at their base in Afghanistan.
Just to be clear....
“Cell phone cameras are ubiquitous”
My guess is SEALs don’t bring cell phones on a mission - they could ring at the wrong time, divulge info, etc. Maybe someone would violate orders, but I hope they’re trained better than that.
