Tragedy! Twenty Members of Seal Team Six, the Unit Responsible for Getting Osama Bin Laden, Killed In Afghan Helicopter Crash

(Vanity Fair)

This was the largest single loss of life ever for SEAL Team Six.

Fox News reported –

The Associated Press has learned that more than 20 Navy SEALs from the unit that killed Osama bin Laden were among those lost in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan.

The operators from SEAL Team Six were flown by a crew of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. That’s according to one current and one former U.S. official. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because families are still being notified of the loss of their loved ones.

One source says the team was thought to include 22 SEALs, three Air Force air controllers, seven Afghan Army troops, a dog and his handler, and a civilian interpreter, plus the helicopter crew.

The sources thought this was the largest single loss of life ever for SEAL Team Six, known as the Naval Special Warfare Development Group.

    Out of all of those helicopters that we have operating in Crapistan, it just so happens that they go after the one with the Seal Team Six on it.

  • Joe Bidens xanax dealer

    This is horrible.

    One question though: Why, on Gods green earth are we telling the world that the Taliban got its revenge? Why are ‘we’ releasing these facts? Who is responsible for this? I want to know… NOW!!!

    If Obama released it, its to take attention away from him destroying the economy. Normally, soldiers aren’t id’d for a LONG time to the public. Especially special forces.

    I want to know what doofus released this. I want to know now

  • Granny

    I’m sorry – that is FAR too much of a “coincidence” to be accidental. This was a set-up job, a deliberate act of revenge . .

  • WillofLa

    Here’s what happen. Obama didn’t like having to kill Bin Laden. If it had been up to him he wouldn’t have done it because of his close association with Muslims due to his heritage with them he’s one. But he had to let it happen since it was a hit planned by the military during the Bush administration.

    Once it was done though, Obama had an out. He showed honor to Bin Laden to at least make some amends with the Muslims by burying Bin Laden according to Islamic belief in 24 hours after his death. But he was still on the outs with the higher ups because he let the hit happen at all.

    So to make full amends he had to turn the men who “murdered” Bin Laden over to the Muslims for punishment. He knew he couldn’t just turn over our military for trial and allow them to be put to death for their sins. So he did the next best thing and took that Black Berry out and called his PLO buddies and was able to contact the Taliban leadership. They agreed to forgive Obama for the sin of murdering a spititual leader of Islam by giving them the tactical information of the path the helcopter was taking and that it had the team who were responsible for the death of Bin Laden.

    The Taliban shot down the helicopter and on it were the men who “murdered” Bin Laden sending them to hell under Islamic belief, and now Obama has repaired his image with the Muslims, and Allah has been revenged!!

    Sound logical?

    Yup, this whole thing just reeks to high heavens. Either #12 hit it right about on the head or our troops in Afghanistan have been infiltrated and compromised to a degree that is beyond the pale. But then considering the rash of jihadis who belong to the US Army (see the grenade attack in Kuwait, at least two attacks/attempts on Fort Hood, etc.), perhaps the truth is “both.”

  • WillofLa

    Man…..if we could only prove that. But I’ll bet that IS exactly what happened. Obama gets a intel brief every morning when he gets up at 10, so he would know what was going on. Obama has his buddy who is head of the military who would give him the information he wanted. Hell, who knows what Obama has going on. It’s not going to be Patreus, isn’t he the head of the DoD now? Isn’t he Secretary of Defence? It’s not him who would be giving the intel to Obama. It could be someone as low as some Major or even some Col. But to give top secet intel to the President on a need to know basis only about where a SEAL team is going and the path they are taking? Man….they would throw you under the jail, no, they would stand you up against the wall and shoot you in the head.

  • Mad Hatter

    #12,

    I can’t stand Obama, but I think that’s going a bit too far. He ordered the Seal Team to take out Bin Laden, your theory is flawed.

    I think what we have is people in Crapistan acting as trusted friends, when in reality they’re spies for the enemy. They tipped off the Taliban about the helicopter, and sadly, this is the end result.

  • Barack Obama

    FORE!!!!

  • Kurt

    This is indeed quite a terrible tragedy. If it weren’t enough that these are the heroes who took down OBL, it’s made worse by the fact that, Obama, the guy who claims credit for their heroism, is now out on his bus tour at taxpayer expense, celebrating having further increased our debt and causing the first downgrade of the nation’s credit rating.

  • Granny

    BTW, 25 of the 31 US servicemen on that chopper were Navy Seals –

    The presidential morning briefing is not conducted specifically by a member of the military. Usually done by somebody at the director/assistant director level of National Intelligence. I seem to remember reading something a while back though about Obama eliminating the daily briefing . . .

  • Mad Hatter

    As someone said earlier on another thread, where are all the anti war communist scum? They were so damn worried about war during Bush, now they’re silent. They’re probably too busy celebrating the death of these brave men.

  • Granny

    I’m not so sure it actually was Obama that ordered the Bin Laden hit. You might recall that there were numerous reports at the time that Obama couldn’t make up his mind, the mission was repeatedly delayed and put off over a 24 hour period and in the end it was a general who gave to go ahead.

  • Barack Obama

    I told you serfs during my never ending campaign, that Afghanistan is the war we needed to win. Well, I’ve got one word for you American douche-bag citizens.

    SUCKERS.

  • Seal Team Six was silenced so the risk of members telling the truth about bin Laden could be eliminated.

    My evidence? None. I just think Obama is the most loathsome creature ever to crawl on the ground, and I put nothing past him. Nothing. He has the seeds within him of the great narcissistic monsters of history.

    As I’ve grieved the loss of our brave and wonderful warriors, I’ve been gripped by nagging suspicions, too. And now to learn who were among those tragically killed…

    May God forgive me if I’m wrong, but I don’t trust our nation’s treasure with that traitor in the White House. This was reported in June — he was meeting with the Taliban and MB:

    http://politisite.com/2011/06/30/obama-will-talk-with-muslim-brotherhood-taliban%E2%80%A6-but-rejects-talks-with-the-evil-gop/

    Send that b@$!@^d and his filthy pals packing. Too many of our men are dying all of a sudden.

    If men with whom he’d had friendships — that might be inconvenient for a Presidential candidate — are suddenly found mysteriously dead or murdered, why wouldn’t men — who’d fought victoriously for a nation he despises against an enemy he seems to prefer — also be found dead?

  • catwoman368

    RIP brave men, thank you for your service to this nation. #12 I tend to agree with your assement of this. It stinks to high heaven and if we had media that weren’t up barry’s rear end perhaps the truth would come out. So sad for the families, God sees all and one day true justice will be done.

  • Mad Hatter

    #26,

    I remember he had to sleep on the decision, but (and I might be wrong) he made the decision with either the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and some in his Cabinet pressuring him to make the call.

    He would have lost everyone if he would have said “stand down”, sort of like what Clinton did when they had Bin Laden in their sight back in 2000.

    I can’t find the part of the movie where that happens, but I did find “The Path to 9/11”

    this is no surprise. Navy Seals in OBL raid are killed so now we will NEVER KNOW the truth about OBL raid and death. BO’s mission is accomplished. This is the policy of our THUG-IN-CHIEF. he has been supplying our enemies with classified info since the beginning.

    btw, Stay tuned for more malicious rioting that is being promoted by Sharpton/Acorn leaders. Chaos and crisis are good for Liberals and Socialists so they have a reason to trample on more of our constitutional rights while wielding more power over us in the name of pseudo-safety measures.

    One often forgotten fact that has been brushed under the rug every time that it surfaces is the several Pakistani roommates/BFFs from his college days, at least one of which he visited in Pakistan at a time that US citizens were not allowed to travel to Pakistan. Note that poor Pakistanis were not coming to the US to attend college – and that this would have required a non-US passport, thus other than US citizenship.

  • WillofLa

    I just heard on a news break on the radio that, yes, it was SEAL team 6 who had killed Bin Laden but it wasn’t the very guys who were in on the attack.

    This is either the beginning of the cover up, or we need to wait for more info to come out as to who it actually was who got killed.

    But dig this, Obama has already sent out his condolences to the families of the guys who were killed. Okay, that’s cool, but he still may have known about this.

    Also, #16 has a valid point that our military is full of Muslims who may have leaked this intel to his buddies in the Taliban.

    I’m telling you right now, that if the Dept. of the Navy doesn’t find out who did this then we will know that we are all in a world of hurt, that our own Navy with all it’s secret crap that they are involved in, think about all the stuff they’ve designed and use to do all the secret stuff they do, and they wouldn’t be able to find out who it was who leaked the intel?

    Otherwise this was just a lucky hit.

    Suuuuurrreeeee thing! 25 Navy seals on the chopper, 20 of them from Seal Team 6 (thought that is NOT the right name of the unit as we all know). Unless the guys who took out Bin Laden got rotated back to the States the chances are excellent that they were on that chopper.

    ________

    No, of course not. That is wishful thinking on a grand scale. For starters, 7 of the people on that chopper were an Afgani special ops team. Had the military truly wanted to send the team that took out bin laden into some “witness protection” type program, that would have happened before we ever heard about the bin laden op in the first place. And please do remember that each and every one of these men is fully capable of providing their own “witness protection” if need arises. They are far more intensively trained than a mere US Marshall.

    Okay, another conspiracy. I think they “faked” the deaths of the SEAL team so that the muslims WONT go after them, so they were “killed off”, saving the angry vengeful Al Queda from going around hunting down the men themselves.

    No, though I will make sure that I do fairly soon. What does cross my mind, however, is that our military is about to take a big budget hit. Each and every one of our Seals can easily earn twice or three times his current salary in the private sector. I’m suspecting that we might shortly have a retention problem in certain key areas.

    Pres. Bush made it perfectly clear that he ordered a dead-or-alive on bin laden. Unless obama revoked that (why?)I bet they killed bin laden on Bush’s orders. Can you imagine the weakling giving those orders?
    As to this tragedy, sounds like they were going after an important target, ala bin laden, and, rather then use predators, they sent the team. Either the whitehouse or state department leaked. God bless and keep those brave soldiers (including the dog).

Military veterans are a brotherhood of unique individuals, melded together in the crucible of wars past and present and bonded by duty, honor, sacrifice, blood, and love of country.

    the dems weight the benefit to their side when releasing information that may get troops harmed or killed. it never bothered them when they thought it would hurt the Bush adm. i think it’s call priorities. attacking your political opponents through innocent bystanders.

    Guys, there are five events that that just occurred within ~48 hours – but what are the chances that this is just merely a coincidence?

    1) We have just had the greatest loss of life since the war in Afghanistan began
    2) This loss………. was from the squad of OBL termination heros, Seal Team 6
    3) This same day our nation loses its top credit rating (after the Tea Party manhandles Congress, I might add) – and we now have less financial respect than France
    4) Thursday we just had the worst day in our stock market since 2008
    5) These two events occurred within 48 hours at the end of a week (Thursday and Friday)

    Come on. What is going on??

    Granny, another point that I forgot to add is that just this past week, this same group of our best heros, were told by their general (presumably upon White House orders) that they might not get paid. I want to know who ordered these generals to play that crap with our guys on the front line. Whoever is responsible for that stunt should be fired with extreme prejudice. I wish Darryl Issa would find the culprit.

    The fault for this shoot-down lies with the fact that the Obama Administration couldn’t keep their mouths shut about who who conducted the Bin Laden raid. My best guess is that while being a good actor about Bin Laden’s death, Obama was ticked-off with the SEAL’s successful raid, and passed information along about what they were doing, and where they would be.

    IT ISN’T A COINCIDENCE THAT THE MEN WHO BROUGHT DOWN BIN LADEN WERE ALL KILLED IN ONE FELL SWOOP BY THE TALIBAN!

    These men were given-up by our own government, and heads should roll, but the communist leaders in the White House are more slippery than a “Teflon Don.”

  • ruready?

    Obama killed these seals.

    1) He gave their identity away.
    2) He made them fly with a UN pilot – probably an unskilled aviator.
    3) He dispirited them by playing politics on the front line by warning them they might not get paid.

    Our President is a pre-meditated murderer of Navy Seals.

    Is Sarah Palin’s son still deployed? I am praying for him.

    I totally believe Obama is behind this. Who puts 20 Navy Seals on a defenseless helicopter? What about the pinned-down team? Where are they now? If he will do fast and furious, he will do this, and it is only a matter of time before he/they start gunning people in the street who disagree with him. The black mobs are just warmup. The media is ignoring it, and so is he.

    We should be afraid for the safety of our children now. We are not safe in our own country.

  • mg4us

    This is too coincidental. . .

    Nevertheless. . .Why is it everything Obama touches dies or loses? Remember the olympic bid? And his Basketball picks? The Economy. . . employment. . the stimulus. . the US credit rating? Now this.

    It is the curse of “O” the big zero. .

    This guy is a pox on America. . it’s what we get for ignoring the Constitution and the eligibility requirements set forth. . .

    Our prayers to these noble men and women and their families. . .let’s honor them and their work by voting Obama and the RATs out.

    For all you clowns calling for areas to be “turned to glass with a small nuclear device” and the like, why don’t you ask “What the hell are we doing there after ten years?” Or have you bought into everything your Glenn Becks and all the other cartoon conservatives of the media have been feeding you?

    The time for a brutal, but effective slaughter of Islamists was during compassionate dope George W. Bush’s first term, when the memory of 9/11 was still fresh and the nation craved retribution. But after the dope fought the war in a lacksadaisical manner and turned the whole project into a futile nation-building fiasco, there was no hope.

    The subprime blowhard has only made things worse, sending in thousands of soldiers, but never even discussing what he actually thinks he’s doing there. Subprime blowhard is too busy playing golf, sucking down fancy food and drink with his mooch wife and the Hollywood set, while the asskiss media do what is do best: kiss ass.

    This war has become a disgrace. A costly disgrace. Any of you cartoon copnservatives who think history will honor George W. Bush for this fiasco are sadly delusional.

  • Quahog King

    You jingoist knuckleheads are too much. The Seals were taken out by a missile fired by our own people, probably CIA dressed up in Army uniforms. You say, ‘Why’? To shut them up. You say, ‘but Seals don’t talk. They never would.’ Ridiculous. Of course they would be tight lipped as to the bin Laden raid. Who are they going to talk to, each other? Grains of sand? But the web of lies that all of our key Federal leaders keep spinning leads right back to the biggest lie, the one that said bin Laden did 9/11 all by himself, and his close friends. Ridiculous. Not one aircraft part has been typed as to it’s serial number. Not one. No pictures other than that weird one of whatever hit the Pentagon. No evidence of a complete plane in a hole in Shanksville. They ‘say’ that they excavated over 90% of the plane. Where are the pictures? Why are no photographs shown of the Pentagon, the Shanksville excavation, start to finish, or bin Laden’s body? National security? Nonsense. Respect for the next of kin? Simply exclude any picture that captures a piece of a body. Too simple, too obvious, for you simpletons. Osama was not killed during that raid. It’s all a storybook fiction, targeting childlike minds. The Seals knew their effort that night was pure PR nonsense. Their superiors were afraid someone would eventually talk. Badda-bing, badda-boom. Rent the movie about Pat Tillman. His unit was heading to engage the enemy. The Americans were in several vehicles. Tillman and others got to their target area first. They climbed a rise, and engaged no-one. The back-most portion of their unit was detained by an explosion on the road. Tillman’s brother was among those detained. The middle group of Americans arrived on the scene, took aim at the guys up on the hillside, and fired, injuring the man closest to Tillman. Tillman, in uniform, in broad daylight, in plain view, only a couple hundred feet from the Americans doing the firing, yelled to his ‘comrades’ to quit firing. Instead, they kept it up, until Tillman was fatally wounded. I bet Seal Teams Six met their end in a similar strategic fashion. Tillman wanted to talk, to speak publically of his dissent. The Seals MIGHT have talked. All needed to be silenced, by the evil ones.

    whether or not the actual Seals involved in Osama bin Laden hit were
    assassinated is irrelevant, that teams of highly skilled Seals & Afghans
    were, most definitely is..

    i can only hope & pray activities here in the US combined with
    those over in Afghanistan & Iraq are helping to keep AQ et al
    bay.. ergo, unable to plan future 9/11‘s per se..

    unfortunately, i’m beginning to wonder if it is our troops who are the ones
    being kept at bay, so that Obama et al can take US over from within a lot
    easier.. yes, i know how it sounds, but if you knew the MB plans, and how
    deeply they have embedded themselves throughout all our governmental
    ]institutions (not to mention the UN) over the past 4 decades at the very
    least, you wouldn’t laugh, no, you may even wake up..

    this is my biggest fear, do you really think it’s our Presidents??

    we need to be everywhere, but that is impossible.. i say if we want
    to bring troops home, we can start with non-combat deployments..

    “…the Americans doing the firing, yelled to his ‘comrades’ to quit firing. Instead, they kept it up, until Tillman was fatally wounded. I bet Seal Teams Six met their end in a similar strategic fashion”…

    Yeah,our guys thought the inbound Chinooks were Al-Qaida helicopters…riiiight.
    It makes sense now…in your mind.

  • Patty

    This looks like a red flag. Very strange that two helicopters were not used. It looks so very suspicious and was it the cost of two helicopters? These men and women are train at lengths to perform in very dangerous situations. Their skills are not easily attained. I feel their was something more here and it should be investigated thoroughly.

    These were the men of Seal 6 team who captured and killed Bin Laden. And if anything to do with common sense my first instinct would be to separate these soldiers. We haven’t had a tragedy of this portion in ten years. And of all the skills and talents lost in this horrible crash you would think our military would have done things so very differently.

    My heart goes out to all the families for their horrible loss.

    God Bless our Troops.

  • In the field

    I couldn’t keep reading all this nonsense. I had to skip down to just comment. We sign the dotted line willing to give our lives for this nation. What happened to these souls is another sad casualty of war. However, they didn’t waste away on their comfy couches at home eating cheetos and watching Fox News. No, they died a brave death in the line of saving the freedoms of a bunch of divided ignorant minds who kick back and enjoy a six pack of budweiser jacking their jaws about the no count black Muslim president leading the country straight to hell. Please! You say that Obama set this attack up? I guess that means that Bush set up 9-11 too! Stop blaming the CinC for everything!!!! It’s making me damn ill! I serve my country eating MREs, getting shot at, crappin inna hole in the cradle of civilization so you can sit in your nice air conditioned homes, watch football, and chat about the latest presidential screw up. Shut the hell up! You are making a mockery of these men’s sacrifice. If you want to blame someone blame yourselves for the uselessness you serve in this whole damn situation. RIP military members gone but not forgotten!

    Forgive me in I’m wrong but in what manual does it say to put that many high value seals in the same damn chopper?I believe they should have had either 3 or 4 not one.Also read this bird was Nat’l Guard and not as heavy reinforced.Hell in basic training they teach you not to lump all your assets together.

  • Andrew Deal

    More unnecessary American loss of lives! Three questions: 1. Which politician first identifed Seal Team Six carried out the Bin Laden attack? 2. Is there independent confirmation that the chopper downing was from outside and not an Afghan soldier from inside? 3. Given previous Afghan attacks on coalition forces, could this be the another such conspiracy within the Afgan government? God Bless our fallen Americans!
