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.

    Maybe some inside information.

    Obama high fiving Leon Panetta.

    I wouldn’t put it past the current administration to set up these soldiers for Muslim Retribution. The Kenyan is a Marxist Muslim and obviously HATES our Armed Forces.

    Hmmmm, indeed. No pictures of OBL’s body. “Buried” at sea. And now, dead SEALS. Curious, no?

  • Mannie

    My condolences to the families and friends of the deceased. Brave men all. There’s beer waiting for you on Fiddler’s Green.

    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.

    The Afghans don’t want to help our troops, they want to set them up.

    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

    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 . .

    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?

    Why did the lovely trustworthy media release this? Also, I wonder what the seals knew! I smell a stench!

  • ohio

    No “coincidence” here.
    The ISI was involved in this.
    Do to them what Rome did to Carthage.

    Obama knew where they were, yes he did.. :-(

    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


    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.

    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.
