The cynical part of me says that if this had not been Seal Team 6, the MSM would not have reported it at all. But that moniker is programmed in to whatever software they use to scan the wire services.

Another part of me has other comments. Suffice to say, FUBO.

As much as I despise Obama, I think these are accidents not murder.

They are in a dangerous profession.

Members of Seal Team 6 are dropping like fly’s..
What is it they know that’s so damaging.. to; I dunno.. “somebody”..

And by the way where ARE those 30 odd people saved by the two Seals at Benghazi?..
They disappeared.. vanished.. dropped off the planet..
What d they know that’s so damaging..

As a member of the US military, who is on jump status currently, I can tell you that there are a couple of fatalities every year. It’s simply a risk you take. Total failures, cigar rolls, blown sections, etc. Then you factor in the human element on things such as steering into wires/trees/water, getting tangled with other jumpers, there was even a case last year of a guy dying after landing on a roof and not collapsing his chute fast enough (and then pulled off the roof).

Anytime you leave an airplane that isn’t parked on the ground, you take a risk. 99.99% of the time, nothing comes of it. But when you do have a failure, it can become very catastrophic very quickly. But there’s a reason people see me deep in prayer from the time I get on the plane to the time I’m on the ground.

Accident my ass. Obama will keep on until every last one one them is dead. He will play hell ever getting a military attachment to produce another photo op for him. They see what’s happening and they know.

I think a lot of Clinton’s deaths were very suspicious and I would not be surprised at anything he would do including murder, treason, etc. I think Obama is if anything even worse than Clinton but I don’t think he is nearly as smart.

Some of this takes a very shrewd character to pull off although now that I think of it, Obama doesn’t really have to be smart. The media will cover for him no matter what.

SEALs live a more daring and dangerous life than most of us, and as a result their chances of being killed jumping out of an airplane or on a mission is much greater than those who sit in front of a computer all day or stay on the airplane until the plane gets to the gate.

Nah, I’m just an intel dude. But I’m lucky enough to support other cool people, so I end up getting a lot of cool training myself.

Needless to say, I love my job.

then you are not informed - do some research of the set up of all the seals on that helicopter in the ‘ghan - on a helicopter the Seals DO NOT fly in - that was flown straight up and parallel with the ledge were the bad buys had a straight shot to take ‘em down.

and what had happened to those 30+ survivors of Benghazi? (You know, the ones bumbleberry left to be slaughterd - which they would have been - dead men don't talk) Not even members of congress are allowed access to them - even as to who they were or where they are.

It's dangerous to know anything in bumleberry’s world.

Right back at ya, bro. There are a lot of things I worry about before each jump, but none of them have ever had to do with the aircraft. Every time I leave a plane I know without a shadow of a doubt that I will get a green light at the exact right time, when the plane is where it’s supposed to be, and at the speed and height where it should be. When I get done thanking Jesus on the ground, my next batch of thanks always goes to you aircrews dudes and the parachute riggers.

I think these are directed hits and I pray some SEALS are guarding the survivor in the hospital.

Likely was collision during night free fall exercise....

For SEALS even training is dangerous (use live ammo!)

That’s the $64,000 question but I’ll bet it’s someone who has power and something to hide....Now who could benefit from SEAL Team 6 being eradicated? Kim Jung-un isn’t my first guess. What’s your opinion?

Thanks guys, for the stuff you do.

These SEALS live in some pretty rarified air and they do stuff in training that has a better than average chance of killing most people. Sometimes, it kills them too. If training weren’t dangerous... It ain’t training.

You have had more better and consistent experiences with Air Force pilots than some of us.

something is not right! still makes one, and i’m no conspiracy nut, think that there is much to be hushed up about the o.b.l. “assassination” and ‘someone’ is getting worried that the truth will come out.

Bath-House Barry supports the lingering, painful, solitary death of an infant that survived an abortion.

Barry doesn’t give a damn (and is probably AFRAID) of the honorable men who are our SEALS.

I don’t doubt for one minute he or Valerie Jarrette (Iranian of the Day!!!) is ordering our SEALS’ deaths. And, his “base” is too stupid to connect the deaths and they really don’t care anyway.

Bath-House Barry is offal- (so is Jarrette)- and I’m being kind.

Please inform us on the facts of this parachute accident then. Because without any information, there’s no way to come to any conclusion other than a knee-jerk one.

Poor “reporting.” This is probably not a member of the group that actually went to Abbottabad, but a member of the larger Development Group. The MSM sensationalizes and misleads once again.

I don't think he does directly... but his handlers? They would do anything. I mean look, Van Jones was one of them before the heat got on him. If you think that liberal left wing socialist/communists wouldn't do this then God help you.
