I'm surprised that I haven't seen a thread dissecting reports that the team who killed Bin Laden were themselves taken out by the Taliban by rocket fire on their heli.
Rich food for conspiracy theorists surely.

Quote:

KABUL, Afghanistan — A military helicopter was shot down in eastern Afghanistan, killing 31 U.S. special operation troops, most of them from the elite Navy SEALs unit that killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, along with seven Afghan commandos. It was the deadliest single incident for American forces in the decade-long war.

Quote:

A current and a former U.S. official said the Americans killed included 22 Navy SEALs, three Air Force members and a dog handler and his dog.

All but two of the SEALs were from SEAL Team 6, the unit that killed Usama bin Laden in Pakistan last May, officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information. None of the SEALs killed in the crash took part in the bin Laden mission.

Anyone interested or is this on another thread?

Come on chaps, read before you post, this is how silly conspiracy theories get started.

There is a discrepancy between the two reports but it was stated by many sources that the seals responsible for the death of bin Laden were taken out.



Quote:

President Barack Obama said Saturday that the deaths of Americans in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan are a reminder of the "extraordinary" price the U.S. military is paying in the decade-long Afghan war.

Insurgents shot down a U.S. military helicopter during fighting in eastern Afghanistan, killing 30 Americans, most of them belonging to the same elite unit as the Navy SEALs who killed former Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden, U.S. officials said Saturday. It was the deadliest single loss for American forces in the decade-old war against the Taliban.

Quote:
More than 20 Navy Seals died in the helicopter crash that killed 31 in Afghanistan yesterday.

Some of those Seals were members of Seal Team 6 that took part in the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden, the AP reported today; although they were not actual participants in the Pakistan raid, according to the New York Times.



How can both sides of this story be correct?

We are using Fox News as one of the sources, place your faith in that if you will.

As has been said before, the soldiers were from the same unit. It was not the same soldiers. That a newspaper gets that wrong proves nothing. I think it was mentioned elsewhere that the unit consists of about 260 soldiers.

Hmm. Seems unlikely that a special forces unit wouldn't know who their target was.

There's every chance that the guy who was shot was not Bin Laden but one of his mates who used to come round and watch the Arsenal games with him on his big TV. It's not implausible that Bin Laden was in the kitchen fixing a bacon sandwich.

We've got to keep an open, gaping mind on these things.

And, until now, we have absolutely no actual proof, one way, or the other. Just the word of a politician and his subordinates.
