Destroying our country, our military and our very existence
The Canada Free Press ^ | May 9, 2013 | Paula Helton

Posted on 05/10/2013 5:39:28 AM PDT by Uncle Chip

How many Americans have heard of Extortion 17? Extortion 17 was the call sign for the Chinook helicopter shot down in Afghanistan on the night of August 6, 2011. Killed in that crash were 25 special ops forces, including 15 members of Seal Team 6, 5 national Guard troops and 8 Afghans.

Today, the families of the military killed in that crash held a press conference to lay out the coverup by Obama and the military that has gone on since that crash. The video of the press conference can be found here

I watched the live stream of the press conference, admittedly crying throughout. Then the point came that the tears turned into white hot anger.....

Islamist Imam praying over our soldiers at Bagram Air Base

At the beginning of the video is footage of the Islamist Imam praying over our soldiers at Bagram Air Base. Of course he prays in Arabic, but in the English translation he sent our heroes into eternal hell as infidels while praising the Islamist relationship with our country. You read that right, and our Government and our military let that happen.

This operation reads like a set up from the beginning. All the Special Ops forces were packed into one National Guard Chinook. There was no escort for the Seals that night, no pathfinder, and conveniently the “eye in the sky” (drone) didn’t work.

The seven members of the Afghan military that were to accompany our service members were switched out just prior to take off. The names of the seven Afghans appearing on the flight manifesto were not the seven that boarded that helicopter on the night of August 6, 2011.

Apparently the call to switch out these seven Afghans was made by an “out of theater” commander. To this day, no one has come forward identifying that commander. America needs to demand an answer to that question.

Remember, prior to this crash, Barack Obama and Joe Biden had identified Seal Team 6 as the forces that killed Osama Bin Laden. One has to ask, “were they a trade off for Bin Laden?”

Trade off? Tin foil hat time, I know, but.......what if the so-called Bin Laden ‘hit’ was, like so many things with this administration, a total fabrication? I had always found the timing of that hit very suspect.

IF....go with this.....it was a total fabrication, you’d have to silence those who were ‘featured players’ in the imaginary drama. IOW.....they were offed to ensure their silence.

Call it a gut feel, but I can’t shake it.

That's because it's believable that this democrat administration is capable of such high crimes and treason. They are ALL criminals!

If that "hit" was a fabrication, then there would have been no need to sacrifice Seal Team 6 in this operation.

The whole scenario screams Fast & Furious 2 with CIA assistance and then covering it up by letting the actors involved be killed to cover it up. It’s just speculation but I imagine someone lined their pockets and sold their soul knowing that the witnesses involved would be killed to cover it up. There’s just way too many coincidences that allowed this to happen and people in 0 administration lying to cover it up. Nixon is probably turning over in his grave for being impeached for so much less.

It just occurred to me...15 members of Seal Team Six as in the very unit that took out Osama Bin Laden. How convenient a payback was that for the terrorists? This just keeps getting better and better. Sounds like someone got paid to let it happen

I knew we were in serious trouble when the memorandum came down saying that it wasn’t fair to evaluate Soldiers based on their performance in battle. What should you evaluate them on? How well they sing?

Don’t forget that the Taliban who shot down the Chinook was almost immediately found and killed. How convenient.

for my money; it was a setup....intelligence, pointed to a remote cabin, situated in a mountain valley...it was simple, to attracted attention to the cabin, by lighting up the radios/cells, or whatever....the Afghans, knew sooner or later, a flight would be made to investigate the cabin...hence the helicopters would fly down the valley, making a very easy target....this tactic, was similar to the Northern Koreans use of cables strung across valleys....helicopters were permitted to fly up the valley, but on the way down the valley the cables strung across the valley...destroying the aircraft....

When Extortion 17 was shot down I knew that there was something fishy going on>

Use of the SEALs to conduct the raid that killed Osama was tactically correct - a high risk mission into a third country that was our nominal ally, etc.

Use of the SEALs to conduct this raid was NOT tactically correct. The mission back ground called for a Ranger ground force. A difficult mission, yes, but at the same level as the Osama? “Not hardly Pilgrim!”

But then, I have only been around the SpecOp community since 1969 and have never had a headquarters tour to be properly infected.

I am just a too old light infantry commander...no combat, no berets myself....just years working with troops in the field from every US service and from all over the world in training including US and foreign SF....but when I read about this at the time of the loss, my immediate thoughts were...........

1. What are seals doing so far inland on a relatively common every day mission?
2. What were 16.....16!!!! Seals doing concentrated in one operation that is a plain jane airborne infantry role?
3. Who in their right mind would put that many EXTREMELY high value assets in a single transport?
4. What are we using a single cargo Chinook to transport so many, as opposed to several smaller more nimble, better armed and tactically capable Blackhawks?

Now I hear the Afghan team that was to be on the chopper, were swapped out at the last minute? Who was saved and who was sacrificed?

Could be honest and rational answers to each....BUT..

The looks, looks mind you, as if these men were concentrated in such an unusual fashion and then their presence leaked to the enemy....who as we know is embedded throughout the Afghan and contract advisory forces.

If nothing else, careers should have been ended....but probably promotions gained.

There are games afoot Freepers to convert the US military...up until now a bastion of conservatism...into a progressivist vanguard of militant gays, lesbians, and uberlibs....while purging the “old guard”.

If that "hit" was a fabrication, then there would have been no need to sacrifice Seal Team 6 in this operation.

The raid on the compound did happen. Osama Bin Laden, the CIA asset, was not there. He died in December 2001 as reported in the foreign press at the time. Seal Team 6 had to die to keep the official legend of Osama Bin Laden alive and to maintain the credibility of the War on Terror, on which the entire modern police state at home and all our foreign wars abroad are based.

One of the fathers who spoke read from a document that indicated that the Taliban were given a heads up to be in that area on a given day and and time to take down the Seal Team that took down Osama. It was preplanned.

I’d be willing to bet that the 7 Afghans who were substituted were the Taliban back up. If the RPG missed, they were going to bring it down from inside.

How do the brass at the Pentagon live with themselves knowing about this.

“Trade off? Tin foil hat time, I know, but.......what if the so-called Bin Laden ‘hit’ was, like so many things with this administration, a total fabrication? I had always found the timing of that hit very suspect”

Uh, no kidding. They thawed Osama out from whatever freezer they have been holding him in for years and then killed a semi look-a-like and dumped Sammy’s room temp body in the Ocean. Since nobody from the ship even knew about the funral at sea it until they saw it online I’m guessing they shoved the body out of the chopper at about 1,000 ft.

Anybody seen any video of the so called funeral at sea? Didn’t think so. No pics of the body because its too gruesome. Like the pics of Ambassador Stephens or Usay and Kuday were too gruesome or Qhadafi. But those all got leaked out no problem.

The second I heard that Chopper went down with 16 SEALS onboard I turned to Mr. GG2 and it was like a vulcan mind meld. No words necessary. We just knew.

For all you disbelievers out there I would say what I said to my 90 year old Mom. If you believe that the DOJ/ATF deliberately ran guns to the Mexican drug cartels, and you believe that the POTUS and SOS deliberately allowed our ammbassador and 3 SEALS not to mention embassy personnel to perish in Benghazi and then lie like troopers about it why would you not believe that the US govt staged the death of Osama bin Laden and then killed 16 Navy SEALS to cover it up?

If it was staged then what was the purpose of identifying Seal Team 6 as the ones who flew in??? All Obama Biden had to say was it is confidential like everything else he does. Why publicly identify Seal Team 6 making them a target that then requires another operation to silence those who weren't talking anyway???

Hey, why does the guy do anything? I didn’t say he was good at it I just said he did it.

Obama is Captain Chaos. His job IMO is to wreak havoc on this country economically, socially and morally in anyway he can. He wants to bring us down. Being the sane, rational people most of us are its hard to understand.

It’s been known to happen when the King wants something and the little people stand in the way of his getting it. Try David and Uriah, 2 Samuel 11.

The big mistake we make in the US is underestimating the evil that our leaders are capable of doing. I doubt that the little people ever knew of David’s surrogate murder until many years later.

There was a former Navy Seal at the Press Conference. During an interview with Tom Trento near the end of the video he made the claim that it was not an RPG that brought down the helo, but a Man Pad with position capability. Isn’t that the kind of stuff obama is supposed to have been smuggling into Syria from Lybia? We know Al Qaida is in Syria.

Well..if that happened then the Seal Team killed a body double and carried the whole charade to the moment of a burial at sea because I know the mother of someone aboard the navy ship that disposed of his body at sea. That is all I know..but the conspiracy would have had to be a big one. I just don’t think that is possible.

I do think it possible that this administration either willingly or through neglect let those soldiers be killed. We have Islamist moles running rampant throughout our government now...anything is possible.

I keep sharing this because it has to be exposed far and wide. It made me so sad and angry I have been sick since watching the video. The former Navy Seal who spoke really got to the core of hurt and anger. I know the video is long, but try to find time to watch the whole thing. You will cry, but America needs to cry over this. It’s Viet Nam doubled.

Canada Free Press has some genuinely fascinating and insightful writers. Picked up in Doug Hagmann’s analysis of Benghazi months ago. His information is boldly accurate. Way ahead of all other sources. Sadly he sees America as a Saudi Arabian mercenary force currently engaged in low level combat with Russian surrogates.
