‘Somebody should go to prison for this’
(Tea Party) – Twenty two members of Navy SEAL Team 6 died in Afghanistan shortly after Vice President Joe Biden leaked that their unit was responsible for the death of Osama Bin Laden. Radio talk show host Michael Savage has no intention of letting anyone forget, telling listeners during his inaugural East Coast drive-time show that he will continue to pursue the truth behind those deaths.
“They were killed. They were assassinated. They were executed. Or it was done because there’s a moron working inside the Defense Department who did it to them,” said Savage. “Either way, somebody should go to prison for this.”
In August 2011 the Taliban shot down a CH-47D Chinook helicopter, killing all 38 passengers on-board. Savage calls it, “one of the greatest military scandals in American history.” He asks:
“How could we lose more men in one mission than in the entire history of the Navy SEALS, and no one has been held accountable for it?”
“Who put them in an old slow-flying helicopter in a combat zone?”
“Why didn’t they break them up into fast-strike helicopters?”
“Who made this decision in the Defense Department?
“Who made it in the Obama administration?”
“These are questions, man, and I want them answered, and I want a hearing; and you want to hear equality, you want to hear fairness? How about fairness to the families whose hearts are broken by somebody in the Obama administration who killed those Navy SEALs? Would that be equality?”
Early this year the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform will hold a hearing to investigate the tragedy.
Savage has dedicated his book “A Time for War” to Navy SEALs in an effort to “awaken America.”
As those close to the SEALs who were killed come forward, the questions intensify.
One father of a SEAL Team 6 member, Charles Strange, told Savage in an interview that he is convinced that the US government sent his son and the other SEALs to their deaths. Members of the SEAL Team 6 team had given strong indication to their families that they were about to go to their deaths after Vice President Biden revealed that SEAL Team 6 carried out the operation to kill Bin Laden in May 2011.
Strange told Savage that on three different occasions his son grabbed him by the arm, revealing that he had prepared his will.
Strange was finally able to put the pieces together.
As Charles Strange recalled, his son Michael said: “Something’s going on with the team. Somebody’s leaking things out. Something’s going on.”
In the interview Savage, reacted and asked: “Your son knew he was being sent to his death?”
“They knew,” replied Strange. “They knew something was up. Every one of them.”
Several other families have reported strangely similar experiences with their sons, according to Strange.
Strange obtained documents related to the crash that show a series of anomalies, including one that shows that the rescue team was held back.
He said, “This was all planned.” “I have it in the paperwork.”
There wasn’t even a chase helicopter or any support for the team Strange told Savage.
“So, you’re saying they planned to execute your son and the others on purpose?” Savage asked.
“One hundred percent, sir,” replied Strange.
Delving into the Crash
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah has responded to the concerns of Seal Team 6 family members and said the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is investigating the crash that took place that fateful day.
President Obama promised Strange that that there would be an investigation into the death of his son. As Strange recalled on August 9, 2011 when the remains of 30 US troops were brought home to Dover Air Force Base from Afghanistan he whispered into Obama’s ear, asking if a congressional investigation would be launched into his son’s death.
“We will look very, very, very deep into this,” replied Obama.
But Strange has not heard a word since that encounter with Obama.
Families of the SEAL Team 6 members who were killed have filed a lawsuit against President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden as well as the Taliban, the governments of Afghanistan and Iran as $10,000 is paid for every dead US service member by the Islamic regime.
The families have their suspicions about the mission and among them is the sudden replacement of the seven Afghan commandos on board the helicopter just prior to it taking off. The seven who died aboard the Chinook helicopter are not the same seven listed in the flight’s manifest. To this day the families still do not know the true identities of the Afghans who died.
According to Strange the black box was never recovered from the chopper either and does not believe it the explanation that is washed away in a flash flood.
