Father Of Slain SEAL Team 6 Sailor Speaks Out, Gets Spied On By NSA

 

 

 

” For two and a half years, the families of the members of SEAL Team Six – The SEAL Team that killed Osama Bin Laden – have been searching for answers. They want to know why their sons were put aboard a decrepit CH-47 helicopter and flown into a hot LZ with no support whatsoever, they want to know why the government lied about the circumstances of the deaths of the SEALS, and they want to know who is responsible for the deaths of their sons.”

 

 

 

 

 

” In three weeks, they may get a few answers when Congress opens an investigation into the facts surrounding the downing of Extortion 17 in Afghanistan’s Tangi Valley on August 6th 2011.

  In this exclusive TTiV interview, Charles Strange, father of Michael Strange (one of the 22 Navy SEALS aboard the ill-fated flight), tells viewers of the evidence he has obtained from government sources that lay open the lies surrounding his son’s death that have been told by the military, and how a Muslim Imam was brought in by the military to say a prayer over the bodies of the SEALS, even though none of them were Muslim (a “prayer” that was intended to damn the SEALS to Hell.)”

 

 

 

” If none of the SEALS were Muslim, why was a Muslim prayer spoken over their bodies, a prayer designed to insult the memory of these heroes if not to intentionally rub salt into a fresh wound?

  Charles’ wife Mary also recounts how the government has bugged their home, their computers, and telephones. She says that they have been receiving strange text messages, and that cameras have been installed in their home–real-time photographs being sent to her computer screen as she worked.

  That is absolutely terrifying. It was also the basis of a lawsuit that the Stranges, through their attorney Larry Klayman, recently won against the NSA. Mary Strange talks about that as well.”

 

 

   The crimes that have been committed by the present administration and that continue to go un-investigated by the MSM stagger the imagination . Anyone who retains any thought of the existence of an unbiased media really hasn’t been paying attention .

Interview with Osama Bin Laden’s Neighbor: Dead SEALs Never Left the Compound

 

 

 

 

” In a moment I am going to show you an interview that happened in the wake of the the alleged killing of Osama Bin Laden on May 2, 2011. It is not new information but these things are not reported heavily by the mainstream media, or any media for that matter, so it should be news to some of our readers.

The witness has a much different narrative of Operation Neptune Spear than we have heard in the media. You need to take this interview with a grain of salt because it could have been total propaganda. Nevertheless, we still await answers for a lot of inconsistencies and this man’s story could explain a few things if it turns out to be true.

Let’s explore one very big question, in particular, behind the operation to kill Bin Laden . Why was no body produced?”

 

There are certainly more questions than answers .

 

” Muhammad Bashir in an interview with Sama TV claims to have witnessed the operation. He claims that the American helicopter exploded, before it could take off, leaving dead bodies everywhere with no survivors. He brings about an interesting question. What if Bin Laden’s body, dead or alive, was aboard that helicopter? Is it possible that the operation was really carried out but the narrative we have been given is inaccurate?”

 

   While we are not prone to indulge in conspiracy theories the documented record of lying and secrecy within the present administration does nothing to alleviate a thinking person’s suspicions of cover-up and deception in all things .

 

” Let’s say that Muhammad Bashir is telling the truth just for the sake of exploration. Could this also have something to do with the SEAL Team 6 Chinook crash that happened just 3 months later? Could the Extortion 17 accident have been an attempt to cover up what really happened with the Bin Laden raid?”

 

One of the closing lines says it best :

 

” The biggest question on my mind is why we have so many inaccuracies in the story line. Though I don’t know that I would bet on the word of Muhammad Bashir, I certainly would not bank on anything that comes from the Obama Administration either.”

 

    Read and watch the whole piece and decide for yourself . The theory that the destruction Extortion 17 and a glaring amount of inconsistencies about it and the aftermath should give everyone pause .

How The US Raid On al-Shabaab In Somalia Went Wrong

 

 

 

” As a mother of young children, Fadumo Sheikh is used to rising early. Last Saturday she was due to prepare their breakfasts before they went to the local madrasa. But the day started earlier than ever when, at around 2am, she was woken by the sound of sporadic gunfire.

Within sight of Sheikh’s home in Barawe, Somalia, crack American navy Seals had launched a lightning amphibious assault on the Islamist militant group al-Shabaab. Less an hour later they would be forced to retreat, their mission far from accomplished. Based on interviews with witnesses and members of al-Shabaab, as well as official statements and media reports, the Guardian can present the most comprehensive picture yet of the daring pre-dawn raid – and where it went wrong.

What had been invisible to Sheikh and other residents of Barawe was the stealthy advance of navy Seal team six – the same unit that killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan – in a speedboat towards the Somalian coastline before first light. The team consisted of about 20 Seals, according to leaked accounts, and their craft was flanked on the Indian Ocean by three small boats to provide back-up.

The Seals took up positions inside the house’s compound, according to a report by NBC, which continued: “Then a lone al-Shabaab fighter walked out into plain view, smoked a cigarette, and went back inside, one source familiar with the details of the raid said. The fighter played it cool, and gave no indication that he had spotted the Seals. But he came back out shooting, firing rounds from an AK-47 assault rifle.”

The element of surprise had been lost and al-Shabaab’s fighters unleashed gunfire and grenades in a cacophony that rang out across the town, murdering sleep before dawn prayers. But the Americans continued on the offensive, according to an elder who did not wish to be named. “The attackers from the US divided into two groups,” he said. “Group one, comprising six men, stormed the house and began shooting the people inside it, while group two, also of at least six men, were staying outside the house. “

 

 

The Story Continues At The Guardian

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Past US Strikes On Al Shabab Leaders, Even Successful Ones, Have Not Diminished The Group

 

 

 

” A commando unit from the US Navy’s Seal Team Six launched an amphibious raid on a Somali town, but failed to confirm a capture or kill of their Al Shabab target, suspected to be linked to Nairobi’s Westgate mall terror attack. 

The operation could have opposite its intended result of discouraging further attacks. Analysts warn that even earlier successful targeted strikes against Al Shabab, a Somalia-based Islamist militant group, failed to curb the group’s capacity to carry out international terror attacks, and that failed missions could in fact bolster its support and recruitment.

The predawn raid Saturday came unstuck when the US troops were faced with heavier-than-expected return fire, and pulled out to avoid civilian casualties, two security sources said. No Americans were injured. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Transgender Woman Reveals She Served As A Navy SEAL For 20 Years

 

 

” A retired Navy SEAL is poised to blow the doors off the military’s policy on transgender people.

Kristen Beck was a member of the most elite special operations unit in the world — SEAL Team 6. She deployed 13 times. She earned a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star. She served in the same unit that killed Osama bin Laden.

Shortly before the bin Laden raid, in early 2011, she retired as a senior chief petty officer after serving 20 years.

Her name was Chris Beck back then. In a memoir that promises to change the way we think about transgender people and their service in the military, Beck, who is active on Twitter, writes about how she came to the realization that she was meant to live life as a woman.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Disturbing Video On Obama’s Most Horrific Scandal Yet

 

 

 

” On August 6, 2011, a military helicopter— Extortion 17— carrying thirty-eight men (including twenty-five of the elite SEAL Team 6, five National Guard and Army Reserve, and eight Afghan commandos) was shot down over Taliban-controlled territory in eastern Afghanistan.  This was a top-secret mission for a high value target.

Western Journalism reports: It was the worst loss of life in a single day since the war in Afghanistan began. Per a 1250-page military report, it was simply the result of a “lucky shot” by Taliban soldiers perched on top of a building. Per families of those killed and military experts at a press conference held on May 9, 2013, this is a lie among a host of other lies.

After the families attended a several hour military briefing about this “lucky shot,” describing what happened and why their sons died, they smelled a rat and started digging around.

Billy and Karen Vaughn, parents of Navy SEAL Aaron C. Vaughn, started poking around at the “official” story and found not a rat, but a stinking swamp, a coverup that went all the way to the top.

When the Vaughns began trying to drain the swamp, they received what the Obama administration is famous for: the shakedown. None other than one of the highest ranking officers in the nation—Admiral William McRaven, commander at U.S. Special Operations Command—paid the Vaughns a little visit, in essence telling them to keep their mouths shut.

What exactly happened on August 6, 2011? What went wrong—or in this case went right that has the Obama administration dispatching high-ranking officers as thugs?

There are two possibilities, according to information revealed at the press conference:

1. The Obama administration sent American soldiers on a suicide mission, or

2. Someone set up our American heroes—that is, had them murdered—that may include the Afghan government—or shockingly may include Barack Hussein Obama himself.

We learned seven major facts at the press conference:

1.  Thirty SEAL Team 6, National Guard, and Army Reserve were packed into a decrepit 1960s era CH-47 helicopter (something, according to military experts, that was unheard of.) Per military experts, special operations were always conducted with the state-of-the-art MH-47 helicopter—the helicopter SEAL Team 6 exclusively trained in. Further, never—ever—were that many special operations personnel packed into a single helicopterThey were always split up into small groups with multiple MH-47s. “

” Another coverup by the Obama administration and the media. You probably don’t have two hours to watch this in its entirety in one sitting but once you start watching this you may make the time. If not, come back to it. It is critical to share with as many as possible. The media has ignored it. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Afghan Benghazi: Extortion 17, Betraying Seal Team 6

 

 

Extortion 17 - Remember Our Brothers

 

 

” As in Benghazi, we still don’t know the full story of the greatest single loss in Afghanistan and the largest SEAL loss ever — members of a renowned group outed by a loose-lipped vice president.

It’s not officially on the growing list of Obama administration scandals, but earlier this month families of Navy SEAL Team 6 members killed in a disastrous August 2011 shoot-down of a Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan gathered at the National Press Club asking for answers, calling for a congressional investigation and blaming their government for the tragedy, the indifference and the secrecy that followed.

Extortion 17 was the call sign of a special operations mission in Afghanistan on Aug. 6, 2011, that responded to an Army Ranger unit engaged in a firefight with the Taliban and in need of backup.

The Chinook helicopter carrying the rescue team was shot down by a Taliban-owned rocket-propelled grenade over the Wardak Province on Aug. 6, 2011, killing 38, including 30 Americans and 15 members of Navy SEAL Team 6, the unit that killed Osama bin Laden just three months prior.

The shoot-down was described at the time as a “lucky shot,” but the families of the dead SEALs believe that, like Benghazi, it was a pre-planned operation of revenge facilitated by a government that put them in harm’s way without adequate support and with a bull’s-eye painted on their backs.”

Navy Seal Team VI Families To Reveal Government’s Culpability In Death Of Their Sons In Fatal Helicopter Crash In Afghanistan Following Successful Raid On Bin Laden’s Compound

 

 

 

 

”  Three families of Navy SEAL Team VI special forces servicemen, along with one family of an Army National Guardsman, will appear at a press conference on May 9, 2013, to disclose never before revealed information about how and why their sons along with 26 others died in a fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011, just a few months after the successful raid on the compound of Osama Bin Laden that resulted in the master terrorist’s death.

Accompanying the families of these dead Navy SEAL Team VI special operations servicemen will be retired military experts verifying their accounts of how and why the government is as much responsible for the deaths of their sons as is the Taliban.

The areas of inquiry at the press conference will include but not be limited to:

  1. How President Obama and Vice President Biden, having disclosed on May 4, 2011, that Navy Seal Team VI carried out the successful raid on Bin Laden’s compound resulting in the master terrorist’s death, put a retaliatory target on the backs of the fallen heroes.
  2. How and why high-level military officials sent these Navy SEAL Team VI heroes into battle without special operations aviation and proper air support. “

Navy SEAL Killed, Another Injured In Arizona Training Exercise

 

 

 

” A Navy SEAL killed in a parachute training accident this week in Arizona belonged to the same elite squad that includes those chosen to go after Osama bin Laden in Pakistan two years ago, a source familiar with the matter said.

It was the second deadly military training accident in as many weeks and the third notable one in the United States since February. The other two killed 14 Marines combined in a mortar explosion and a helicopter collision.

The latest incident occurred around 12:30 p.m. local time on Thursday in a rugged part of the U.S. Special Operations Command facility at Pinal Airpark, military officials said on Friday.

Two sailors were undergoing a free-fall routine before opening their parachutes, a Navy official said in a statement, which added it was a normal exercise to maintain readiness.”

Pentagon Identifies Highly Decorated SEAL Killed During Hostage Rescue

 

 

 

 ” The U.S. Navy SEAL killed on Sunday during a hostage rescue operation in Afghanistan is Petty Officer 1st Class Nicolas D. Checque, 28, a decorated combat veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Department of Defense announced Monday.

Checque was a member of SEAL Team Six, the special operations unit that killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan last year, though it was not immediately clear if he took part in that raid.

Checque, who was from Monroeville, Pa., and stationed in Virginia Beach, Va., joined the military in 2002, and has been part of Naval Special Warfare Command since 2008, according to the DoD.

He was awarded a Bronze Star and two other awards for combat valor. “

 

 

Getting a Handle on ‘Zero Dark Thirty’

 ” How factual does a movie have to be when it’s inspired by real events? Can a filmmaker really tell a story without filtering it through a hardline political perspective? We’ve finally got a trailer for Zero Dark Thirty that gives some idea of how director Kathryn Bigelow decided to tell the story of the hunt for Osama bin Laden, so let’s check it out.

Let’s get some facts out of the way here: none of us here at Military​.com has a security clearance that gives us access to the classified files that would allow us to come up with any kind of informed opinion about the technical accuracy of this movie. But it’s also true that anyone who’s ever had access to truly classified material of any kind would probably admit that it’s often (read: always) full of conflicting information. An objective retelling of any true life event is pretty much impossible.”

In the description it says ST6. Could these have been the guys that all went after bin laden? The faces that are shown are Seals that died in Action in Afghanistan. Description: Naval Special Warfare Development Group (ST6) — Black Squadron (reconnaissance/snipers) Gold Squadron — Blue Squadron (meritime boat teams) Red Squadron

This Cannot End Well … For Any Of Us 

  “Seven members of an elite U.S. Navy SEAL team, including one who participated in the raid that killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, have been reprimanded for disclosing classified material while helping produce a video game, officials said on Thursday.

All seven of the special operations forces who were punished were members of the elite SEAL Team Six, according to CBS News, which first reported the reprimands. CBS said the seven worked for two days this spring and summer as paid consultants on the video game.”

One Note Charlie

“Osama bin Laden is dead, General Motors is alive,”

 

 

 ” On ABC’s “This Week,” former White House green jobs czar Van Jones called his old boss a “towering figure in foreign policy: You’ve got somebody with a Nobel Peace Prize and he killed bin Laden.” The administration has also leaked details of the raid and cooperated in the making of a Hollywood movie on the raid that is due later this year.

Those of us at The Washington Examiner fist-pumped like everyone else when we heard the news that the SEALs had taken out bin Laden. But is this a grand foreign policy triumph for the ages? We don’t think so, especially given recent events. And one successful assassination does not a coherent foreign policy make. “

… Blames WH Leaks For Her Son’s Death

 

 

   ” President Obama’s team “put a target” on the backs of the Navy SEALs who killed Osama bin Laden, says Karen Vaughn in a video that suggests her son died three months later as a result of White House national security leaks.

“How dare they?” Mrs. Vaughn asks. “They put a target on my son’s back and even on my back. But a little over 90 days later, my son was dead.” Aaron Vaughn and 21 other Navy SEALs, “most of whom belonged to Team 6, the unit whose members were involved in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden,” according to ABCdied in Afghanistanwhen a helicopter he was riding on was shot down.

The video, released by the conservative Veterans for a Strong America, shows Vice President Joe Biden talking about the raid during a public event and Defense Secretary Robert Gates complaining that an agreement to keep the raid details secret “fell apart” as the result of such comments.”

” Sickening: Obama Didn’t Even Personally
Sign Form Letters To Fallen SEALs “

   “Outside of the Republican National Convention this week, Karen and Billy Vaughn spoke at the
Defending the Defenders forum sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots. The Vaughn’s son, Aaron Carson Vaughn, was one of 30 – including 17 elite Navy SEALs – that were killed in a helicopter crash last August in Afghanistan, marking the
“deadliest single loss for U.S. forces in the decade-long war in Afghanistan.”

  As pointed out by the Gateway Pundit , The Vaughns brought the letter they received from
“Barack Obama” – a form letter.
It was signed by an electric pen.

  That’s not all. Karen Vaughn reached out to the parents of the other SEALs killed in that crash.Their letters were all the same. Form letters – signed by an electric pen.”  “

” SEAL AD TO EXCORIATE OBAMA
FOR BOWING TO FOREIGN LEADERS “

  ” The controversial super PAC Special Operations for America, led by former Navy SEALs, is set to release a blistering new ad against President Obama Tuesday at the
Republican National Convention.

  The ad, titled “Bow to Nobody,” depicts Navy SEALs in combat situations; it then proclaims that they fight so that America will not have to bow to anybody. “

Daily Pundit has the entire scoop.

  ” Fox News presented yet another
stunning revelation last week
when retired Gen. Jack Keane , the
former Vice Chief of Staff of the Army, told Fox host Mike Huckabee that intelligence sources had pinpointed the location of Osama’s safe house nearly a year before the raid.

   The White House refused to authorize any military action until there was undeniable proof (specifically photographs) showing that Bin Laden was living in the compound. Gen. Keane explained that many of the officials in the small upper echelon of military and government leaders who knew about the Abbottabad safe house
became very agitated over the delay, because “the longer you spend on something like that, the greater the likelihood is that the target will be compromised, because of your surveillance, and then the target will flee.” “
