Why did the administration send out Seal Team Six to get killed?

  1. Lets see...Bin Laden was supposedly killed and within hours buried at sea with no proof of his death and now the only people that were actually there to witness the death of Bin Laden were killed 6 weeks later.

    Sounds like this is standard governmental protocol. Issue a lie, and then kill all people that could expose that lie.

    Why are we sending our kids in when we have drones and smart, er... relatively smart ... bombs???
  3. Good question. We are so worried about "civilian" casualties, we prefer to risk our troops' lives. Of course, it's not like the brass who make these idiotic policies are at any risk because of them. Like it's always been, it's the frontline troops who pay the price.

  4. 1. Members of Seal Team Six were killed,not the specific Seals of the Bin Laden raid


    "None of those killed in the crash is believed to have been part of the SEALs mission that killed bin Laden, but they were from the same unit as the bin Laden team."

    2.This is not the first time a chopper carrying Seals were shot down and multiple Seals were loss


    "The death toll would surpass the worst single day loss of life for the U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan since the war began in 2001 — the June 28, 2005 downing of a military helicopter in eastern Kunar province. In that incident, 16 Navy SEALs and Army special operations troops were killed when their craft was shot down while on a mission to rescue four SEALs under attack by the Taliban. Three of the SEALs being rescued were also killed and the fourth wounded. "
  5. This just pisses me off. Bring home all our troops and let the rest of the world deal with their problems.

    Stop sending troops.

    Stop sending $$$ aid.

    Stop sending anything that doesn't whistle on the way down.

    Agreed, if for no other reason than we cannot afford it any more. We're broke.
  8. Peace keeping and nation building is not possible there.
