KUHNER: The betrayal of the Navy’s SEAL Team 6How they were ‘outed’...
The Washington Times ^ | June 7, 2013 | Jeffrey T. Kuhner

Posted on 07/27/2013 5:59:02 PM PDT by yoe

Did the Obama administration put a target on the backs of members of Navy SEAL Team 6? This is the question that parents of slain SEALs are now asking — and rightly so. Forget Benghazi, the IRS, Eric H. Holder Jr. and the National Security Agency spying on U.S. citizens. Important as these scandals are, what happened to SEAL Team 6 could very well dwarf them. Our government betrayed America's finest warriors.

Navy SEAL Team 6 became a household name for their role in killing Osama bin Laden. On May 1, 2011, the country rightly celebrated the death of bin Laden. The Obama administration, however, wanted to do more. It sought to claim full credit for the assassination, deciding to spike the football. On May 3, at an event in Washington, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. did the unthinkable: He publicly revealed the identity of the special-operations unit responsible for bin Laden's killing. His reckless action put at risk the lives of every member of SEAL Team 6. The Taliban and other jihadists eager to avenge bin Laden now knew which unit to target. Stunned and shocked, SEAL members immediately realized they were going to be hunted by al Qaeda sympathizers.

Karen Vaughn, the mother of slain SEAL Aaron Vaughn, says that within hours after Mr. Biden's comments, her son called to tell her to wipe away every piece of information regarding the family on social media, Facebook and Twitter. "I never heard Aaron that afraid in his life," Mrs. Vaughn said in an interview. "He told me: 'Mom, we're picking up chatter. We're not safe. You're not safe. Delete everything.'"

According to Mrs. Vaughn, Mr. Biden essentially placed a bull's-eye on her son's back — and that of all the other SEALs. He leaked classified information.

Obama, Clinton, and Bidden bragged about the killing and exposed these brave Navy Seals to retribution then, now, and in the future. Not understanding your adversary's customs shows great stupidity and arrogance on part of Obama/Clinton/Jarrett/Biden.

According to Savage, the entire team was riding a slow-moving Vietnam helicopter at the time of the attack. The military would never put valuable assets in such a vulnerable position, nor would they put the entire team in the same helicopter.

I cannot see that happening unless it was an assassination.

But what if the real truth was even worse? We’ll never know of course.

I would never suspect a US president of allowing a hit on US soldiers.

Until this guy.

Its really not a stretch to believe that he traded their lives for Bin Laden's. He and those with whom he surrounds himself hate everything about this nation. Since the SEALs represent the best of what this country has to offer, it makes perfect sense that he'd treat them like a resource to be thrown away when expedient.

I think it was a message. It was a message that the Obama Administration can micro manage the military using ROE and equipment restrictions and therefore have power over the top military brass.

The Pentagon was still trying to defend the U.S. and the Obama administration is having NONE OF THAT.

The message was to the brass and the message was .... we killed your best men, so bow before your new God)

Dwarfs them? An investigation of this wouldn’t hurt bammy any more than the other “phony scandals” have. That is, it wouldn’t leave so much as a scratch on him. And thats exactly what bammy and Pravda USSA would call any investigation,,,just another phony scandal by the creepy ass crackers in the GOP. Have an investigation,,,fine. Just don’t hope it will hurt The Legend of The One, because it won’t.

post #9 - "I would never suspect a US president of allowing a hit on US soldiers." As CinC Obama really stinks and so does Hillary, the lying twit wanna be POTUS....she is worthless as well.

Whoever revealed even the branch of service responsible did a criminal act against our nation and the ones involved. They betrayed a special trust given them. Not even POTUS is supposed to publicly discuss certain classified military info unless clearly told to do so by those in charge of the information who have discernment in those matters. IOW this should be an impeachable offense.

This was a Special Operation involving a national security issue. Nothing should have been revealed except the death of the target. It is called "Need to know" information for very good reasons. In this case very few needed to know. SEAL Team Six was thrown to the wolves by ones who hate our nation.

Obama did everything but pull the trigger on the RPG that shot them down.

They were set-up to pay back Al Qaeda for the death of Bin Laden.

I can very easily see military higher ups doing this. The brass are nothing but politicians. They wouldn’t hesitate to put valuable assets in such a vulnerable position. To them, they are nothing but government issue (GI’s)to be used and discarded in any way they see fit.

Michael Savage has been all over this since it happened. It has taken nearly 2 years for questions to come to light. His interview with the parents of a fallen Navy Seal is an eye opener. You can hear it on his website.

I was pissed at Biden/etc. revealing a lot of stuff that was going on, but also pissed that so many books started coming out.

Have to remember that it the military brass didn’t dispute the Gulf of Tonkin lie, even though they knew it was a lie, that led to the needless death and maiming of thousands of troops and millions of Vietnamese in a war that tore this country apart. They went right along with it.

I have read speculation that Hillary had armed the Al Qaeda with anti-aircraft missiles to bring down Qadafi aircraft in Libya ( before she violated International Law and bombed a sovereign country) and .in a panic, she realized that the Al Qaeda could bring down American aircraft ( which they will with weapons she gave them). Ambassador Stevens was dispatched with one body guard to Benghazi with 80 million dollars in crates to “buy back: the “stingers”. When they arrived at the undefended “consulate” they were mercilessly attacked on 9/11 ( how could she be so stupid?)— The Al Qaeda took the money and killed Stevens. Brave heroes tried to fight back but SHE ordered “NO HELP” because it would expose her. ( with that crap head for a “president” backing her because an election was looming and he didn’t know if he could steal it yet). That is it, in my opinion.

I am given to understand that there is a thread of distaste throughout the wider military for the publicity that certain of the SEALs both seek and get in a manner often disproportionate to their (admittedly very important and impressive) accomplishments. The SEAL Teams certainly deserve our complete support and respect for their very important work, but they are most definitely *not* the sum total of the US Military. Let’s not forget to give the grunt his due, I say.

Doogle, many, MANY thanks for finding that video. I had no idea of the many anomalies, disrespect and lies that surround this incident.

I don’t how long it has been since I have heard the controlled anger and fury in the voices of parents grieving the loss of their sons in service to our country.

This incident is now firmly in the forefront of my mind. I will continue to follow this with interest.

According to Savage, the entire team was riding a slow-moving Vietnam helicopter at the time of the attack

They were in a CH-47 Chinook helicopter. I've never seen the specific S/N of the helicopter published, but would note that the Chinook is still in production (built by Boeing) in several different variants. Including one (MH-47) that's tricked out for special operations (similar if not better capabilities than the USAF's recently retired MH-53J/M Pave Lows).

The Chinook is a heavy lift helicopter. Twin-engined, with dual rotors. Even though the thing is huge (read: large target profile) it's still considered the best transport helicopter in the US inventory for the kind of high-altitude/high-temperature mountainous conditions encountered in Afghanistan.

Remember that photo taken live during the Bin Laden operation in the White House operations center? Remember Obama sulking off to the side, scowling at what he was watching?

I think the loss of SEAL Team Six was straight-up Moslem holy revenge. Revenge by a secret Moslem against the country he not-so-secretly resents and despises as kufr and capitalist.

You have articulated my sentiments to a tee about this affair, this affair really outrages me. My thanks to Doogle also.

The parts in the video by Admiral Lyons, Karen Vaughn, and Charles Strange, were especially moving to me. The parents who lost their sons, Karen Vaughn and Charles Strange, gave powerful passionate statements, Admiral Lyons really cut to the chase, exposing treason in the higher levels of the government and military. For an admiral of the fleet, even though he is retired, to say the things he did took a lot of courage. God bless him and all who spoke in that video.
