SEAL Team 6 Shootdown

What Happened to Seal Team 6

"Extortion 17" was the call sign for the Chinook helicopter full of 38 brave military personnel (including 17 Navy SEALS from Team 6) that was shot down August 6, 2011, in the Tanji Valley of Afghanistan.   This tragedy occurred a few short months after Osama Bin Laden was killed (May 2) by members of SEAL Team 6.  
No doubt, you remember hearing that horrifying news. But what have we heard since?  Nothing, until last Thursday, when parents of three lost SEALs and one Army National Guardsman spoke at the National Press Club and pleaded for an investigation into what went wrong.  They were joined by retired, high-ranking military officers who expressed grave concern about what is happening within the military's ranks.  
This press conference came a day after the Benghazi hearings.  I watched both in their entirety, and wept over the stories of heroism, duty and honor .... and unanswered questions.  
Below you'll find links to the press release announcing the SEAL families' press conference, and to articles about the conference which I believe fairly capture the essence of those 3 hours.  (The last link is to a story published right after the helicopter crash happened, based on official reports at the time.) 
The families spoke convincingly about research they have done to learn the truth about what breakdowns in procedure apparently occurred. And they accused, sometimes by name, high ranking members of the military for lying to them. 
Possibly most disturbing, we learned that the 7 Afghans listed on the helicopter manifest who were supposed to be flying with our troops, were pulled off the flight at the last minute, but the manifest was never changed.  The implication is that these Afghanis may have fed intelligence to the enemy about the Chinook's flight plans, and that our troops were purposely sent to their deaths in retaliation for the killing of Bin Laden. (You'll hear more about that by listening to the press conference.) 
Two members of Congress attended the press conference (Rep. Louis Gomert and Rep. Michelle Bachman), and they are working with colleagues to demand an investigation into what happened to Extortion 17.  In addition, Freedom Watch is preparing a lawsuit, which we will hear more about in the near future.  
Friends, I plead with you to watch the video of the press conference.  It is gut-wrenching, it is heart-breaking.  But this is a story that must be told and investigated.  It is unfathomable that brave members of our military would be sent to their death with malice of forethought.  And this is exactly what some are charging about Benghazi.  The fog will lift, when the public's outcry demands it. 
The press conference can be seen within the Canada Free Press article.  There are some pre-conference interviews.  The conference itself starts at the 9 minute, 27 second mark.

The National Press Club News conference

(Washington, D.C.). Three families of Navy SEAL Team VI special forces servicemen, along with one family of an Army National Guardsman, will appear at a press conference on May 9, 2013, to disclose never before revealed information about how and why their sons along with 26 others died in a fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011, just a few months after the successful raid on the compound of Osama Bin Laden that resulted in the master terrorist's death.

Accompanying the families of these dead Navy SEAL Team VI special operations servicemen will be retired military experts verifying their accounts of how and why the government is as much responsible for the deaths of their sons as is the Taliban.

The areas of inquiry at the press conference will include but not be limited to:

1. How President Obama and Vice President Biden, having disclosed on May 4, 2011, that Navy Seal Team VI carried out the successful raid on Bin Laden’s compound resulting in the master terrorist’s death, put a retaliatory target on the backs of the fallen heroes.

2. How and why high-level military officials sent these Navy SEAL Team VI heroes into battle without special operations aviation and proper air support.

3. How and why middle-level military brass carries out too many ill-prepared missions to boost their standing with top-level military brass and the Commander-in-Chief in order that they can be promoted.

4. How the military restricts special operations servicemen and others from engaging in timely return fire when fired upon by the Taliban and other terrorist groups and interests, thus jeopardizing the servicemen’s lives.

5. How and why the denial of requested pre-assault fire may have contributed to the shoot down of the Navy SEAL Team VI helicopter and the death of these special operations servicemen.

6. How Afghani forces accompanying the Navy SEAL Team VI servicemen on the helicopter were not properly vetted and how they possibly disclosed classified information to the Taliban about the mission, resulting in the shoot down of the helicopter.

7. 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.  Watch the video:
