The Blaze ^ | May. 8, 2013 9:49pm | Jason Howerton

Posted on 05/08/2013 8:26:50 PM PDT by Mortrey

"The families will reportedly be joined by retired military experts to explain 'how and why the government is as much responsible for the deaths of their sons as the Taliban,' the release adds."

Chris Matthews and Wolf Blitzer are already ordering paper in bulk, so they can paper over this one too.

Hopefully they'll get the glue from George Costanza.

Obama needs a major news distraction. What will it be?

Of course, ABC/NBC/CNN and most of CBS are asleep at the wheel. Excuse me, complicit in the cover-up.

For starters, the utter abuse and misuse of SOF troops. Our pussified generals and civilian leaders have a fantasy that a few specialists can enter an area and kill the bad guys doing no harm whatsoever to the area they live in, or their communities.

The platoon on the CH-47 that was shot down was a monument to the low quality of our officers at the command level. The force that went out was too small and weak, and needed rescue from a react force. The react force was a seal platoon. Seals are fine, but large group actions are not their thing.
A force of Rangers or Marines, properly supported with araty and gunships was what was called for.

The fantasy that a few specialists can take the place of conventional forces is murdering them.

obama has had it in for the SEALs since they went in his face and shot that somali bastard pirate to save an AMERICAN ship captain. SEALs gave been 'dying' ever since. If you recall, even the bin laden raid was snafued by a helicopter crash.

You wouldn’t pack a SEAL platoon into an Amtrack and use them to storm a defensive position. But the nationbuilders and COIN boys are sure that SOF forces can do anything, anywhere, and can always easily substitute for conventional ground forces.
It simply isnt true.

Never stopped a Dem before from misusing our military.

Recall Hitlery "ordered" military attaché's to the White House to serve drinks at the Clintoon's receptions.

Thank God, they balked at it.

Recall at the end of WW1, officers were ordering charges and assults knowing the war was to be declared over in hours. Thousands lost. All to bump up their prestige as battle commanders.

And whatever happened to “don’t bunch up!” Nowadays we shoo platoonloads of extremely highly trained men, some of our very finest, into one giant helo?
We shoulda thought of this on Omaha beach, or Iwo Jima. Instead of all those smaller landing craft, we coulda just built a company sized one and packed 200 men in it for that run to the beach.

PS,, and although im speaking of incompetence, Obama would love to see SEALs wiped out. He hates them for Mersk Alabama and shooting the pirate. (and also for reminding everyone by their very existence that he’s a metrosexual wuss)

From the article:

How military brass, while prohibiting any mention of a Judeo-Christian God, invited a Muslim cleric to the funeral for the fallen Navy SEAL Team VI heroes who disparaged in Arabic the memory of these servicemen by damning them as infidels to Allah. A video of the Muslim cleric’s “prayer” will be shown with a certified translation.

That's what I call adding insult to injury.

“Issa is very tricky.”

That thought crossed my mind too.

Hmmm....will stay tuned and hopeful. They need to expose Obama on Benghazi. Nothing less will do. Our entire military deserves to see that justice.

I had just posted this earlier this evening:

After today’s testimony, I don’t think they will stop until they uncover all there is to know about Obama’s actions and nonactions.

What did he know and when did he know it.
What did he do and when did he do it.
What did he refuse and when did he refuse it.

Chaffetz had to choke back tears twice today.
Gowdy has a grip on these criminals’ collective jugular.

Yep, I thought it was a new low to learn from Obama's gang that the military wasn't going to put their special operations teams into "harm's way," merely to save lives of our Ambassador and some other personnel!

If the civilians in charge of the Defense, refuse to send in military to protect our people, whom, pray tell, do they think should do it?

Now we know that we can layoff all of Obama's and the little missus' Secret Security bodyguards.

If we don't need security personnel in what is basically a war zone, why on earth put Secret Service in harm's way just to protect Obama and family?

The press release last night said this was supposed to happen today.

Did they decide to delay it because of the Benghazi hearing, or the horror house or the stupid wacked out wife trial in la la land?

Thanks.

I forgot to add, if we do (employ Secret Service for protection) we certainly should NOT have them carry weapons, or at least not weapons with ammo in them as that would be dangerous!

Remember when all the stuff about the birth certificate was going viral? Then all of a sudden out of the blue we get OBL. Then all that stuff about the birth certificate just faded away....

Thus, if all these hearings get a little too hot, then it would not surprise me at all if we see some type of “wag the dog” scenario. With the goal that all these investigations just fade away. Just saying it would not surprise me at all.

I agree with you but I don't know that you realize how hot the water is now. To me, it's a daily media production now. Benghazi hearing was down the list on OTA evening newscasts' priority yesterday. 1. Jodi Arias, 2. Cleveland women come home, 3. House Benghazi hearing.

Call me conspiracy theorist, but I think Chris Kyle’s murder was a ‘hit’, too.. And there there’s the guy (Richard Ratliff) who headed up the YouTube FPSRussia firearms website; Shot dead. There’s another firearms expert recently murdered but can’t remember his name.
