3 Questions About the SEAL Team Six Helicopter Crash
Popular Mechanics ^ | August 7, 2011 | Joe Pappalardo

Posted on 05/13/2013 6:35:05 AM PDT by YankeeReb

The loss of a Chinook helicopter carrying members of Navy SEAL Team Six made yesterday the deadliest single day in the entire Afghan War for the U.S., The New York Times reports. Here are the three most pressing questions that need to be answered after this attack.

The loss of a helicopter carrying more than 20 U.S. special forces and as many as 8 other U.S. military service members is an unprecedented one in this war. The United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DevGru)—better known by its former name, Team 6-reportedly suffered the bulk of the casualties. The incident comes just months after DevGru's raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

The Associated Press is reporting that a rocket attack took down the Chinook (probably a MH-47) , quoting an unnamed source in Washington D.C., but this has yet to be confirmed officially. The Taliban, of course, has taken credit, saying it shot down the helo during a special forces raid on a home.

This is an old story which came and went off the MSM very quickly. The Blaze has been saying that this was revenge for the killing of ObL. It's an amazing coincidence that this happened soon after Osama was taken out, and it was swept under the rug. However in light of Benghazi , the Boston massacre and the info coming out that the regime was warned about the two dirt bags , the IRS targeting those groups who would question the regime, I think it's important as another example of how the left is systematically dismantling the security of the country.

I watched the SEAL training TV show about Class 234. What a complete waste of human life and training.

There is the chance that they staged this so that Seal Team Six could go back under cover, but I don’t think Obama is that smart.

An extraordinary number of Seal Team Six members have died since the OBL mission.

Too many for it to be accepted as mere chance without some degree of skepticism.

Identities SEAL Team Six are now known to our enemies thanks to Taliban operatives in the White House. Bounties and rewards for SEAL their scalps are being collected.

2008 to Date US Military Casualties in Afghanistan are staggering. Daily suicides.

Tragic evidence the enemy is within the White House.

You got that right, he isn't. Even if this was staged, these men died , so wouldn't that be a frightening thing that the regime would have men killed essentially for some kind of cover story? That sounds like something Stalin would do.

IMHO if the regime staged this,(and I shudder to think they are capable of doing this) it would be to appease the "muslim street" in the M.E. After all, how great a propaganda coup for terrorists if the men who took out bin Laden were struck down seemingly by the hand of allah.

What gets me is transporting the whole team in a Vietnam-era helicopter down flight corridor that is highly vulnerable to attack.

My question is was the Commander who authorized so many of our Special Operations troops to be airlifted into a “Hot LZ” in a Chinook relieved of his command? As far back as Vietnam, we learned to disperse our troops in multiple aircraft (UH-1’s in those days) that were fast moving and mobile. A Chinook is nothing more than a big fat target and should never be used to transport troops in a rescue mission or any other kind of activity where they are subject to enemy fire. To load 20+ Special Opns. troops plus 10-15 more U.S. and Afghan troops on a Chinook and send it into a “Hot LZ” is nothing less than criminal.

I think it’s important as another example of how the left is systematically dismantling the security of the country.


Here is another example:

ICE Agent Tells Mark Levin: Obama ‘Inflating’ Deportation Numbers, La Raza ‘Running Our Agency’

Chris Crane, president of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers union, spoke to radio host Mark Levin, and unleashed two bombshells that should outrage all Americans.

First, that Obama is “cooking the books” on his so-called “record” deportation numbers - inflating them by up to 50%, by Crane’s estimate.

And perhaps most shocking, Crane revealed that the race-baiting pressure group La Raza is effectively “running” ICE - forcing agents to stop enforcing the law against illegal aliens nationwide.

Why did the WH make it very clear to the entire world that it was not Navy Seals but SPECIFICALLY Navy Seal Team Six?

Why not just say it was the Navy Seals or just special forces? Why spell it out exactly who killed OBL?

The release of this specific information about which Seal Team conducted the raid sure did work out well for the enemey as they are now convinced they got their revenge.

Unfortunate coincidence, I'm sure.

As we found out in Vietnam, the Chinook ($$hithook) is the only aircraft in the world that can have a mid-air collision with its self.

Here’s some information from some of the families. They want answers
http://youtu.be/lqB0qYr7ikg

The media did a good job at hushing this up real fast.
3 1/2 hour active battle. Never heard that.
sent into battle without proper air support. Never heard that.
Requested pre assault fire - denied.

Biden and bozo identified them. Was that releasing classified information?
Odd how we never did see dead osama.

Watch these Navy SEAL Team VI families and other family members as they reveal the Obama Administrations culpability in death of their sons in the fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan following the successful raid on bin Laden’s compound. This is a powerful and riveting briefing that included some of America’s most significant military leaders.

It’s 3 hours, at the

At the 19 minute mark you will see how the US government had an iman desecrate their bodies at the airport with some moslim prayer condemning the infidels to hell.

I flew UH-1H Hueys in Vietnam & for a decade after that.

But Chinooks scare me with their five transmissions, the fifth being the `combining box’ that keeps the rotors synchronized & away from each other. If it fails & the rotors kiss, it’s all over.

That being the case, IMO the SEAL Team Chinook was brought down by an inside job involving our `noble’ Muslim allies.

So fed up with those people.

The SEALs have been the object of onama's revenge since they shot that poor somali pirate and saved an American. I must have said it now a hundred times. They came as close to disobeying HIS direct order as they could without actually disobeying it and he does not forgive. He gets even.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

One of the men who died on the Chinook has local family.

They have calling into the local talk radio show, talking about the incident. One said that other officers have expressed opinions that these guys were set up to die.

We need to expand the search. Zero is a puppet as are all presidents. Who is he a puppet for? Who is try to spread Islam as far and wide and as fast as possible?

Answer those questions and we will have whomever is behind Benghazi, Sandy Hook and Boston.

The sad answer is us.

We do not hold criminals accountable, instead we allow them to continue to live on the taxpayers dime because of their insanity, childhood, or political office.

For example: Benghazi Coward B. Hussein Obama just now said at his presser that concerning the IRS Punitive Taxing Scandal, and the Benghazi Massacre Cover Up Scandal, that he would do the following:

” - - - fix the system and make sure that it never happens again. - - - “

Why, this punishment bypass could be used for all crimes!

No more jail time for bank robbers, gang and terrorist shooters and bombers, violations of the US Constitution, etc, etc!

Just make sure to FIX THE SYSTEM BY PASSING LAWS SO NOBODY GETS PUNISHED, AND THUS THE CRIME WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN!

This will truly be a Political Sideshow Cornerstone for The Obamanation!

________

Puzzle for the day: If Zipper Boy Clinton claims that it all depends on what ones definition of “is” is, then can our sorry RINOs document that Benghazi Massacre Mastermind B. Hussein Obama assertion that there is no “there” there ?

I have NO doubt that Obama was behind this... the problem remaining is, how can we prove it? :/
