‘No Chance’ Mission Compromised: Obama Pentagon Claims They Have No Idea Why Seal Team 6 Members Were Slaughtered -- PatDollard.com

WASHINGTON – “I want an investigation. That was no investigation. My son’s dead and you’re going to give me some B.S.?”

Charles Strange is just one of a number of surviving family members who do not believe the Pentagon’s explanation of how, and why, their sons were killed in the single deadliest incident in the war in Afghanistan.

A congressional hearing on Thursday briefly looked into the downing of the helicopter with the call sign Extortion 17 in Eastern Afghanistan, on Aug. 6, 2011.

After the hearing, family members of those killed aboard the craft poked holes in the testimony of the military brass who testified.

Family members told WND, contrary to what they heard, they believe:

Afghans did compromise the mission

The Taliban was aware Navy SEALs were aboard the chopper

Suppressing fire should have been used to clear the landing zone

The antiquated Chinook helicopter was inappropriate for the mission

A Muslim cleric did, in fact, condemn their fallen sons in a bizarre ceremony

Family members said nothing they heard Thursday contradicted their strong suspicions the Taliban was aware that 30 U.S. special forces soldiers, including 17 members of SEAL Team VI, were aboard the chopper, and that they were killed in retaliation for the killing of Osama bin Laden.

Members of SEAL Team VI had killed Osama bin Laden three months earlier, on May 1, 2011.

Two days later, during a Washington, D.C., dinner event, Vice President Joe Biden publicly revealed that SEAL Team VI had killed bin Laden.

The family members believe SEAL Team VI was then targeted for revenge, and they also believe the Taliban was tipped off that SEAL Team VI members were aboard the craft.

On Thursday, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Garry Reid testified, “We do not believe the mission was compromised.”

He said there was no chance the Taliban was tipped off, because, he claimed, there was no consultation with Afghan forces prior to the shooting down of Extortion 17.

Family members told WND that is not what the U.S. military has told them previously.Keep Reading
