Congressional Hearing Needed on Navy Seal Deaths
The August 6, 2012 the situation resulting in deaths of Navy Seals and National Guardsmen is crying out for a Congressional hearing to learn the facts.
In what is considered the worst loss of American lives in the war in Afghanistan, a Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan was shot down on Aug. 6, 2011, that killed all 38 people on board—Seals from Seal Team 6, national guardsmen, and some Afghan soldiers.
Parents of the slain servicemen are demanding a full and complete hearing. It seems that the hearing on the equally horrific slaying of our ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi is taking the spotlight.
During Operation Extortion 17, 38 servicemen, including many of the Navy Seals of Seal Team 6 were killed. Vice President Joe Biden, in a traitorous slip, identified the Seals who successfully captured and killed Osama bin Laden. When the administration, including President Obama confirmed the part Seal Team 6 played in the bin Laden assassination, a target was place on the backs of the Seal Team members.
It is strange that on August 6, 2012, the Seals were asked to engage the Taliban and were embarked on a non-Special Forces helicopter to take part in an ongoing battle without adequate assistance normally utilized in such a deployment.
The reason given was that “We are trying to win the hearts and minds of the Afghans.”
What a load of cattle excrement!!
Not only should VP Biden be prosecuted as a traitor for totally inappropriate release of classified information, but the administration officials (up to and including the President) and military Pentagon officials who failed to live up to their sworn oaths should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
The Merriam Webster dictionary defines Traitor as: “one who betrays another's trust or is false to an obligation or duty.” Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution states, “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
Rules of engagement which limited our ability to engage the enemy with maximum safety for our troops must be changed! If we cannot do much more than provide examples of what the term “cannon fodder” means, we should leave and let the Afghans work things out for themselves!
Take a look at the press conference held yesterday by the families of the slain heroes.
Call, e-mail or write your federal legislators to demand that they initiate an immediate Congressional hearing to discover the full truth and identify the people responsible for this atrocity and then proceed against the identified officials to the maximum extent allowed by the law.
