Just Another Phoney Scandal and it's Coverup,
Nothing To See Here....

(lovingly lifted from the great World Tribune )

At last, there will be a congressional inquiry into the strange circumstances surrounding the fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan in August 2011, which resulted in the deaths of 30 American service members and 8 Afghans, including elite troops from Navy SEAL Team Six, the contingent who killed Osama bin Laden a few months earlier.


“We’re going to dive into this,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee on National Security, told The Hill.

“My son was murdered,” said Charlie Strange in an exclusive interview with WorldTribune.com. Mr. Strange still “cries every day” over the loss of his son Michael, but he is outraged that his legitimate concerns have been routinely dismissed as merely the befuddled complaints of a “grieving father.”

Brigadier General Jeffrey Colt, who conducted the investigation, attributed the shooting down of the helicopter to a “lucky shot” from the Taliban, by some low-level, lone fighter. Mr. Strange cried out that evening: “Are you kidding me? A ‘lucky shot’ would be if he had missed.”

Mr. Strange and other family members do not believe that the black box from the crash was washed away in a “flash flood,” as officials who investigated the crash claim. In addition, “at the moment the aircraft was shot down, the satellite surveillance of a mission, known as ‘the eye in the sky,’ suddenly ‘went out’,” said Mr. Strange. Furthermore, he was told his son’s body had been burnt beyond recognition, only to later see photos of his son’s dead body lying on the ground, clutching what appears to be a gun.

Of course, there's more, after all this is Commander-in-Chief Zerobama's mess. This cover-up is worse than Benghazi, for it involves how this administration treats our nation's finest of the finest, the Navy Seal teams. Yeah, the very ones who, only three months earlier, took out Zerosama bin Laden.

There is a related, earlier story at WorldTribune.com, detailing the ugly circumstances of that night in Afghanistan, here.
Read both stories, and weep for our fighting men and women who are sent on suicide missions.
