The Associated Press has learned that more than 20 Navy SEALs from the unit that killed Osama bin Laden were among those lost in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan.
Back in May, Defense Secretary Gates said that releasing information about the OBL raid threatened the safety of Navy SEALs and their families, making them targets for terrorists.
Why did the Obama administration leak and name this Seal Team? Was it payback?
Who is taking revenge? The ISI? The Taliban claimed that they downed the helicopter with rocket fire while it was taking part in a raid on a house where insurgents were gathered in the province of Wardak late Friday. Who tipped them off? And who supplied the Taliban with state-of-the-art surface-to-air armaments?
These are the questions that must be asked and answered by the Obama administration. But do not expect the press, whose job it is to do, to do it. They are an activist propaganda machine actively working against the American people. The enemy's number one arsenal on its war on America.
The loss of those extraordinary warriors cannot be described. The pain and suffering is beyond mere words. Weep for the loss for the families and for our great and noble country.
There should be a national day of mourning declared in their honor, to remind all Americans of the devastating toll taken by the war declared on the West by Islamic jihad.
