Savage’s ranting about the SEAL Chinook shootdown shows he really doesnt have much of a clue regarding the daily logistics of the military. I love Savage and have been listening to him since 2001- however he is really off the rails on certain subject lately (namely this and the zimmerman issue, dont get him started!). In real life sometimes QRF just doesn’t have an Apache escort..its not supposed to happen but it does. That is a fact. Just watch Lone Survivor - same thing happened. Chinook shot down by lucky RPG shot. Sure, it would be great if every time a tier 1 team was airborne it was with 160th SOAR but that isn’t reality. While I wouldn’t be surprised if the Afghans tipped someone off about the chopper I really don’t think there is some grand conspiracy here. Give me a break!
He should at least have a clue what he is ranting about as far as the military hardware he is talking about.
