Marcus Luttrell Talks ‘Lone Survivor’

 

 

Marcus Luttrell

 

 

 

” There’s no way a whirlwind of movie screenings, press conferences and interviews in Manhattan five-star hotels ever entered Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell’s mind during the five days he struggled to survive during Operation Redwing in 2005. He wrote a memoir in tribute to his fallen comrades (Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10that became a bestseller and that book is now a movie (Lone Survivor) that stars Mark Wahlberg as Luttrell.

  Luttrell seems like he’s treating this entire process as a continuation of Operation Redwing, that getting the story out about the men who died is a necessary step to completing the mission. He spent a lot of time on set during filming of the movie and now he’s traveling around the world to promote the film. We had a chance to speak with him one-on-one and he talked about his decision to write a book, the experience of working with director Peter Berg and how realistic they tried to be in portraying the mission.”

US Moving Forces In Response To South Sudan Violence

 

 

 

 

” Three of four U.S. Navy SEALs wounded after coming under fire during rescue efforts in South Sudan on Saturday are being evacuated to Germany for treatment at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, the U.S. hospital near Ramstein Air Base, military officials said Monday.

  The fourth servicemember who suffered more serious injures cannot be moved at this time and remains in Kenya for treatment, Defense officials said.”

A Navy SEAL Sniper’s Perspective On Firearms Ownership

& The NRA

 

 

 

” I first joined the NRA when I decided to attend the NRA Range Development course in 2005. I was there to learn about private range operations and the hurdles of getting shooting ranges approved in California. I learned that getting a shooting range approved in California is almost harder than getting Spotted Owl on the menu at a Sierra Club gala.

  I took military leave from the SEAL sniper course to attend the Las Vegas NRA Range Development conference in 2005. I remember sitting in the conference room as the attendees were going around the room introducing themselves, “Joe from Colorado, gun show owner”, “Bob from Montana, gun smith…” When it came to my turn, I stood up, kept a straight face, and told them I was a representative of the Sierra Club who was attending to find ways to shut down shooting ranges across the nation. I’m pretty sure one guy had a stroke, and the rest were just north of apoplectic. When I told them I was bullshitting them and gave them my background as a Navy SEAL, the tension disappeared and the room erupted in laughter.

  I never shot much as a kid, aside from shooting clay pidgeons off the bow of the boat I worked on. I hunted quite a bit, but it was with my spear gun, not a rifle. I learned to shoot in the Navy, and only became an expert with a weapon by the time I finished my first SEAL platoon work up. It was there that I was given a shot to attend sniper school with my best friend Glen Doherty (later killed in Benghazi, Libya).”

” A Snap Shot Perspective of My Views on Gun Ownership & The 2nd Amendment

  • The 2nd Amendment is inherent in America’s cultural DNA
  • Limiting magazine capacity is ridiculous and impractical
  • I believe everyone who owns a gun should attend a firearms safety qualifications course, and this should be standardized across the country. Too many people I’ve seen on the range are unsafe.
  • Yes, owning a gun is a right, driving is also a right but you have to have pass a drivers test to prove competency
  • Few people outside of America understand how important firearms ownership is to Americans
  • Background checks are a good idea but should take minutes, not days
  • Often gun laws are made by people who don’t use, own, or understand firearms”

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 .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Navy SEALs Ordered To Remove ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ Navy Jack

From Uniforms

Navy Jack

 

 

” The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.

So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol? Is the proverbial top bass banning the flag? Is President Obama? “” The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries.

    For the uninitiated here are some links to the storied history of the Navy Jack , a history that is irrevocably entwined with the history of our country itself and beautifully reflects the “radicalism” of the Founders and our great nation .

Awesome: Head Of Special Forces Answers 6-Year-Old Boy’s Ninjas Vs. SEALs Debate

 

admiral-raven1

 

” This is just a great little story. I can’t imagine how happy this kid was to get a response from Admiral McRaven.

Six-year-old Walker Greentree is a kid in a military family who needed an answer to the age old question, “who is quieter, a ninja or a Navy SEAL?”

He knew exactly who to ask!

From Blue Star Family:

One afternoon while playing with a friend in the yard, the young Greentree was scolded by his mother.  ”Be quiet like a SEAL,” said Vivian Greentree.  His friend immediately replied — as one would expect from a 7-year old. “Ninjas are quieter than SEALS.” And thus, a monumental argument began.  WHO is quieter? Ninjas or SEALS?  SEALS or Ninjas?

So in times like these, the younger Greentree wanted to ask the experts.   He wrote to Admiral William H. McRaven, a United States Navy admiral, and Commander, U.S. Special Operations Command. He’s a big deal.  And what happened next will go down in history and for Walker Greentree, it will be a moment he will never forget.”

Why the Navy SEALS use the SIG Sauer P226 Pistol

 

 

Published on Aug 23, 2012

” The Dept. of Energy (DOE) manages our nation’s nuclear weapons program and armed security is vital to protecting these weapons and nuclear material. The Navy SEALS, the Texas Rangers and many federal officers use the Sig P226 for a very good reason. Accuracy and reliability.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bin Laden Raid Files Reportedly Purged From Pentagon Computers,

Sent To CIA

 

 

” The nation’s top special operations commander ordered military files about the Navy SEAL raid on Usama bin Laden’s hideout to be purged from Defense Department computers and sent to the CIA, where they could be more easily shielded from ever being made public

The secret move, described briefly in a draft report by the Pentagon’s inspector general, set off no alarms within the Obama administration even though it appears to have sidestepped federal rules and perhaps also the Freedom of Information Act. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

10 Guns That Have Shaped The Course Of American History

 

 

” With more than 90 guns per 100 citizens and a constitutional right to bear arms, the United States has a close history with guns. 

A new book, American Gun, details the 10 firearms that have the biggest stake in American history.

The author is Chris Kyle, a legendary Navy SEAL who died in April as a result of gunshot wounds when a Marine veteran with post traumatic stress disorder turned his weapon on Kyle at a Texas shooting range.”

 

 

Political Appointees Helped bin Laden Filmmakers Over Objections Of Career Officials At Pentagon

 

 

 

Political appointees at the Defense Department, the CIA and the White House brushed aside concerns from career officials about helping two Hollywood filmmakers research their 2012 movie about the top-secret Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden, according to a report from the Pentagon’s inspector general.

CIA Director Leon E. Panetta, who had been nominated to take over at the PentagonMike Vickers, defense undersecretary for intelligence; and politically appointed public affairs staff in both agencies and the White House helped secure for the filmmakers a meeting with a participant or planner of the 2011 raid, the report shows.”

 

    This report confirms a post we had earlier in the week about the politicization of the bin-Laden raid and amply demonstrates that political expediency trumps national security every time with the thugs that presently occupy the White House .

 

” “At the direction of Director Panetta, the CIA is cooperating fully” with the filmmakers, Mr. Vickers wrote to Douglas Wilson, who was assistant defense secretary for public affairs. In reply, Mr. Wilson promised to “check with the [White House] to update them on status.”

Investigators said that, as a result of these efforts, screenwriter Mark Boal attended a June 2011 ceremony at CIA headquarters in which raid participants were honored and were clearly identified, despite efforts to keep their identities secret.”

 

      The next time you hear Obama prattle on about the need for secrecy to maintain “national security” keep in mind the fact that the term is actually meaningless to him and his staff . To them EVERYTHING is viewed through the PRISM of politics and how  the given situation/event can best be spun to make them look good . There is never any selfless consideration of what’s good for the country , only what’s good for Obama and his Statist agenda .

If you doubt that this could be the case just pause for a moment and consider , Fast & Furious , Benghazi , Sequestration , IRS , James Rosen , AP Phone Records , PRISM , War On Whistleblowers , et al . Observed with an eye towards Obama’s political survival the administration’s seemingly bizarre actions make sense .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Former U.S. Prosecutor Sues Obama And NSA Over PRISM Scandal

 

 

” TorrentFreak just obtained a copy of a complaint submitted at a federal court in Columbia, targeting President Obama, the NSA, Eric Holder and Verizon who all played a role in the mass surveillance scheme.

The class action lawsuit was filed by Larry Klayman, a former US prosecutor under the Reagan administration, together with the parents of the killed Navy SEAL Team VI member Michael Strange.

The plaintiffs accuse the PRISM participants of violating their constitutional rights, reasonable expectation of privacy, free speech and association, right to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures, among other illegal and criminal acts. Both Klayman and the Navy Seal parents demand compensation for the damage they suffered.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 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.”

American Aid Worker Describes Her 93 Days Of Hell At The Hands Of Somali Bandits Who Kidnapped Her And The Dramatic Navy SEAL Rescue Mission That Freed Her

 

 

 

 

” An American aid worker who was kidnapped by Somali bandits and held hostage in the desert for 93 days has spoken for the first time about her terrifying ordeal and the dramatic Navy SEAL rescue mission that brought her home.

Jessica Buchanan was 32-years-old when she was in Somalia teaching children how to avoid landmines with fellow care worker Poul Thisted.

Their car was hijacked by Somali bandits with AK 47’s. One of them was a ten-year-old boy who was draped in ammunition. She was sure she was going to be raped and killed.

On the night she was rescued, when she heard the gunfire, she thought it was a rival Islamic faction come to kidnap her and probably kill her.

At one point, while they were waiting for the helicopters to come, the SEALS think they hear something and ask her to lie down. 

Then they gently lie on top of her to shield her from any attack – ready to take a bullet for her, something Jessica says she cannot comprehend. 

When the helicopters come and she gets inside, Jessica said she only starts to breathe once they get off the ground. And then one of the SEALS hands her a folded over American flag.

She describes the moment: ‘I just started to cry. At that point in time I have never in my life been so proud and so very happy to be an American.’ “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Families Say Muslim Cleric Disparaged Dead Navy SEALS At Their Own Funeral

 

 

Imam_Curses_SEALS

 

 

” Relatives of Navy SEALs who died when their helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan in August 2011 spoke at a press conference Thursday to condemn the Obama administration and claim that the U.S. military presented a Muslim cleric at the dead SEALs’ funeral who disparaged “sinners and infidels who are fodder for the hell fire.”

FreedomWatch president Larry Klayman, the attorney representing the families, claimed at the press conference, which Republican Rep. Michelle Bachmann of Minnesota and former Florida Republican Rep. Allen West also attended, that the U.S. military presented an anti-American speaker at the SEALs’ 2011 funeral.

Klayman presented video footage of the SEALs’ military funeral at Bagram Airfield, which featured a Muslim prayer. The prayer, according to Klayman and the families, disparaged the fallen SEALs.”

 

 

Why was a Muslim cleric at the service in the first place ? Were any of the SEALs Muslim ? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hundreds Of Texas Educators Take Free Concealed Handgun Class

” A concealed handgun training class envisioned by former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle before his death drew hundreds of educators to a Texas school auditorium Saturday.

More than 700 teachers and administrators attended the all-day session on gun laws and safety at Kennedale High School in Dallas-Fort Worth area, The Dallas Morning News reported.

The free class was organized by Dalworthington Gardens Police Chief Bill and Kyle, who was fatally shot at a North Texas shooting range in February.

“It went from 20 to 30 teachers to the more than 700 we have here today. It just exploded with Chris’ involvement,” Dalworthington Gardens Police Chief Bill Waybourn told the paper.”

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.”

 

 

Dedicated to Helping Snipers Kill the Enemy — AmericanSnipers.org

 

 

” The following is the account and history directly from the organization we all need to support.

In late 2003, a small group of U.S. police snipers formed a support network to address the operational equipment needs of U.S. military snipers deployed abroad in the war on terror.

Formerly known as “The Adopt A Sniper” program, the effort began as a simple request for assistance among deployed friends, whom were also peace officers serving in the National Guard and Reserve. These peace officers were employed as SWAT team snipers at home in the U.S. and were also assigned as snipers within the United States military.

As the initial war in Afghanistan stabilized and the war in Iraq progressed, the urban mission profiles of police and military snipers were found to overlap. The gear and supplies needed to accomplish the two missions were found to be virtually identical. Once deployed, these military snipers requested assistance from their SWAT sniper friends in procuring the specialized gear, which was better suited for their missions and but not supplied by their parent military entity for a variety of reasons.”

The two-day firefight during which a group of soldiers tried to rescue their fallen comrades inspired the film ‘Black Hawk Down.’ According to critics, the Clinton White House failed to provide our men with the resources needed to complete the mission.

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. “

” A U.S. Navy SEAL was killed early Sunday in the rescue of an American doctor who was kidnapped by the Taliban in Afghanistan, defense officials tell NBC News.

The Navy SEAL was wounded in the rescue operation and later died, according to a senior defense official.

The rescue operation was launched when coalition forces reported that Dr. Dilip Joseph was in imminent danger. Joseph, who worked with the non-profit Morning Star Development of Colorado Springs, was kidnapped Wednesday along with two Afghan staff members — one is part of the medical team, the other part of the support team. Joseph has been the non-profit’s medical adviser for three years. “
