So this stuff (political climate) may be turning into a free-for-all? I'm not doubting anything just an observation.

I'm curious to find out what they're going to say. Since all on that mission were killed, and it's doubtful any divulged any classified information about that mission prior to their deaths, I'm guessing the PC is about lack of answers from the gubmint and frustration on the part of the families.

Why we should get the frick out of there 2. What could have happened in Benghazi where according to Hicks, it appeared the enemy was trying to lure Americans into a trap.

Except that we're talking about 20 so odd guys on a slow arse chinook vs. 40-50 guys assaulting a compound. VERY different.

I think that Helo crash was organzied by our government after the Bin Laden killing. Wouldn't be surprised if family members bring this up in the press conf.

I remember reading something a while back about this possibly being an inside job. How far fetched is it to believe one of the Afgans on board was a suicide bomber?

Elaborate.

I'm not up on this story so I'd like to hear more.

Though I'm sure this will be swept under the rug like Benghazi.

1. I'm very interested.

2. Big picture, won't matter. Jodi Arias is more important.

From the article

quote:

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.

The problem with this conspiracy theory is that none of the team involved on the Bin Laden raid were involved in the crash

The Muslim cleric info, if true, is fricked up beyond description.

No member of the Bin Laden raid team was among the dead, said a Pentagon official briefed on the casualties who was not authorized to speak publicly while families still were being notified. But he said 22 of the 30 were Navy SEALs, and a significant number were members of SEAL Team 6, the unit that conducted the Bin Laden raid and is made up of just a few hundred of some of the best-trained fighters in the U.S. military.

Although considering the competence generally shown by this admin outside of grandstanding in front of the camera, it's entirely possible I suppose the crash was staged to silence members of the Bin Laden raid and they simply arranged for the wrong people to be on the chopper.

DEVGRU kills Bin Laden. Muslim extemist threatens to relatiate against the US. US government worried about attacks on home soil. So US government sacrafies members of DEVGRU to "justify Bin Laden killing". Extemist satisfied. No attacks on home soil.
