While I’m not one to easily get sucked in to conspiracy theories, I have been doing a lot of thinking and a lot reading and listening about the recent attack in Afghanistan that killed the 22 members of SEAL Team Six.
Now before you write me off as a crackpot, hear me out. Now, at first I was wondering why they were on a Chinook, a pretty large transport and also a large target for the enemy instead of say a Blackhawk which is smaller and faster, but then I learned that the Chinook is faster in the high altitudes of the mountainous terrain.
Then I started thinking why didn’t they have an escort of gunships to accompany the Chinook, but then since this was a rescue mission the presence of several helicopters would have just brought more attention to the area and put even more of our troops at risk.
Then this morning while listening to my favorite talk radio station a caller brought up an interesting point. When OBL was purportedly killed, the only witnesses were in fact SEAL Team Six. Now let’s say that at the time they really thought that they had got him, but later learned that it was an imposter. Trouble is, now they have no evidence, since thanks to our government the body is at the bottom of the Indian Ocean. Let’s say SEAL Team Six was about to blow the whistle on the cover-up and embarrass this administration. What if someone in this government leaked to the Taliban about this mission, route to be taken, occupants of the Chinook and timing of the mission. So this mission flies into an ambush and all occupants are killed including members of SEAL Team Six, which may be the only eyewitnesses to the killing of OBL.
It sickens me to even consider this scenario but there are just to many coincidences to be ignored. After all this administration is no stranger to cover-ups (Operation Fast and Furious) that result in multiple deaths.
UPDATE: I just heard that an F-16 took out the Taliban insurgents that were responsible for shooting down the Chinook helicopter, now the question becomes why was there no fighter escort like this to clear the area before the Chinook flew into the area.
We may never know any or all of the facts surrounding these events, and I don’t claim to have any inside information, I just presented a theory, a scenario that isn’t my own, but one I can’t easily dismiss. One that has witnesses disappearing at an alarming rate. Many questions remain and are already being asked:
God I hope I am wrong about all this, because if not, are any of us really safe especially if we are vocal against this administration. If I am wrong about this, so be it, but if I am onto the truth here, I will not be silenced, NOT UNTIL MY LAST BREATH.
