The Death Of Seal Team Six

The families of US commandos killed in a 2011 downing of a helicopter in eastern Afghanistan have blamed Washington for the attack and the ensuing cover-up, a report says.

The White House is responsible for the shooting down and subsequent cover-up of the Navy Chinook helicopter carrying 38 people onboard including 17 members of SEAL Team Six in August 2011, the Washington Times quoted the parents of the deceased on May 9.

The family members said the US President Barack Obama’s administration and other White House officials “put a target on their backs” after they announced Osama bin Laden’s killers as SEAL Team Six.

Taliban militants also received leaked information from the US government regarding the landing site of the helicopter, which made the chopper vulnerable to attack, the families added.


“[The militants] were positioned in a tower in a building at the perfect place and the exact time to launch an attack on the CH-47 when it was most vulnerable,” said Doug Hamburger, father of Sergeant Patrick Hamburger who perished onboard the aging Chinook helicopter.

The fallen soldiers were flown to the landing site with a Vietnam-era Chinook helicopter rather than with their customary Special Forces choppers.

Family members also questioned the sudden replacement of seven Afghan commandos onboard the helicopter just before the takeoff….

Doesn’t pass my smell test!  Assassins (even faux assassins) don’t live long lives.
