Do you LOVE America?


    Payback or Propaganda?

    International forces killed the Taliban insurgents responsible for shooting down a U.S. helicopter and killing 38 U.S. and Afghan forces over the weekend, but they are still seeking the top insurgent leader they were going after in Saturday’s mission, the top American commander in Afghanistan said Wednesday.

    In a separate statement Wednesday, the military said the Monday strike killed Taliban leader Mullah Mohibullah and the insurgent who fired the rocket-propelled grenade at the helicopter. The military said intelligence gained on the ground provided a high degree of confidence that the insurgent who fired the grenade was the person killed. It did not provide further details.

    Questions about the downing of the SEAL Team Six Chinook helicopter over the weekend abound. Alex Jones of is a leading proponent of the theory that members of Seal Team Six, who reportedly executed the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, were killed to keep the true story quiet. According to Jones, multiple military sources have confirmed to him that the SEALs were waiting for an opportune time to break the story. After the weekend crash, a source by the name of Colonel Sixx, who appeared on Infowars, claims that several families of the SEALs may be preparing to take their story public. Jones suggests that other SEALs in the unit may be aware of a cover up and are themselves preparing to take action:

    “This whole thing stinks to high heaven. The SEALs are very angry and believe that it was a hit. They’re not stupid. They’re very tight knit. They’re very in tune… this is definitely a cover up with what happened with the OBL staged killing.”

    An article published by mainstream news outlet Reuters asks What happened on night of deadly Afghanistan helicopter crash? and addresses the military operation itself. It makes no mention of Jones’ insinuations.

      1. Alex Jones is not the guy you would want to quote and expect to maintain whatever credibility you have. Sometimes he latches onto accurate info but marginalizes it by associating himself with it. Sadly, he tries to fill a void left by the MSM. If the Seals families come out with accusations, then there might be something to look into. I also wouldn’t trust the Pentagons claims that they killed the RPG shooter. Remember Pat Tillman? The military also engages in propaganda. Time will tell.

        • I’m hearing stories of recently released Jackie Kennedy taped interviews where she alleges that LBJ played a roll in the assassination of her husband, JFK. RFK was also supposedly killed because he knew who had killed his brother and, as president, RFK was going to bring them to justice.

          I don’t know that there would be very many Americans who feel that their government isn’t capable of almost any atrocity, lie or coverup.

          Then, years after anyone involved or who might actually care about the truth is long since dead … the truth finally comes out.

          My poor country is run by Corporate Kleptocrats and Banksters.

          • Mossad murdered JFK…assisted by the CIA and The Mob. (BTW, the real mob chiefs are “Israeli”, not Italian.)

            Mossad’s motive was JFK’s recent oath that Israel would not go nuclear, because JFK (rightly) knew such would cause a never-ending mid-east arms war. (Read Michael Collins Piper’s well documented expose.) Just a mere several months after LBJ takes office, Israel is nuclear powered. Strange coincidence?

            Upon discovering the CIA was a loose cannon, an uncontrolled, uncontrollable 4th branch of government, JFK vowed to dismantle it. Obviously the CIA disapproved of banishment to the unemployment line.

            It’s well documented JFK won the election only because father Joe’s corrupt IL mob business partners ordered their union members to vote for JFK, which they dutifully did. Without Joe’s influence the mostly Protestant IL working class would never elect the Papist JFK. JFK makes brother Bobby AG, who promptly and methodically imprisons the mob bosses, for which the mob returned the favor in Dallas.

            Basically, Oliver Stone’s movie JFK is just about spot on, minus the Mossad connection, of course, because the movie’s producers and financiers were of the Jewish variety.

      2. Totally agree Mac!! This was a set up that goes all the way to the top……..Why in the hell would you put 30 of our best in a slow ass moving “bus with wings” to perform a a percise military operation. This goes againist everything that is done by this elite team. Never ever put all your eggs in one basket….. I hope to hell that some general with some balls, comes out and blows the this cover off this shit. A total disgrace from our administration. Feel free to take over the White House Seal Team 6 !!!!!

        • Couldn’t agree with you more! SEALS wouldn’t have traveled on a Chinook for a deep cover mission. My question is who in the hell is going to call Mr. Purple Lips and his girl Hilary on the carpet for all this BS aimed at getting him another 4 years?

          • Reports have it that this was a National Guard Chinook only in country for a few weeks instead of Soar 60, the regular Army unit that usually hauls the Spec. Ops. troops around. Why put this many in a National Guard Chinook when you have specialized units available? There is a lot related to this story that requires explanation.

        • a slow ass moving “bus with wings”

          Tis better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

          With at least 100+ hours aboard a CH-47, I can attest that it is one of the fastest rotary-wings out there; utility, attack or cargo.

          And why 30 of our best aboard? Because a damn UH-60 won’t carry 30. So are you suggesting we make a target rich environment aka more helo? Maybe the Tali could then just flock shoot?

          The conspiracy is one of idiocy. 30 of our best at maybe $1/4 million or more each in training erased for convenience sake? Bubba, the troops were elite partly because they can keep their mouth’s shut and accomplish the mission. They were vetted, you aren’t. They were never an Intel risk. Bullets and RPGs aren’t addressed to particular addressees. Shit happens.

          • Listen genius- live and work with many of their family members in VA. Beach VA. They are all saying the same thing. Why would we take four never seen before helicopters to kill UBL and we take a “bus with wings” that has been out dated since the 70’s. Yes the Chin-47 has its needs….but not on a seal mission…..and tell me why we didn’t have SEAL pilots???

            You have too must trust in you Government…..Look at our Debt. You think they give a shit about money and training costs??? or people for that matter???

            Tis better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

          • Overtheedge: I have been on the CH-46 Sea Knight’s more times then I can count 100+ hours as well. Assault Support is its primary function, of both the CH-46 and 47’s the movement of supplies and equipment is completely secondary. On this point I agree with you. However the fact that the media has access within hours or even days of these (Ops) tells me that there is some kind of BS agenda going… period. It is not a normal for the Seals to be highlighted like this, like they have been in the last few months!

            There has been far to much leaked on this story for it to be a little queekie-dink. (Seal Team Six) has been put under the spot light for some kind of fucked up political agenda!

            • Complete agreement. ST-6 was in the limelight and I have no doubt that the CH-47 downing will be played for all the political worth possible.

              CH – cargo, UH- utility, OH- observation and AH-assault/attack

              Now why a CH-47? Speed and capacity. In the 325th (Abn) Inf (82nd), we ran lots of missions out of CH-47s. As a Combat Engineer 12B, we ran beaucoup out of Chinooks. It may be a bus, but it is fast. With twin rotors, the problems of retreating wing stall don’t show up at the lower speeds of single rotor helos.

              My beef with the response to the posting was “slow ass” and the conspiracy angle: possible – maybe, probable – doubtful.

              Yes, the CH-46 and 47 are old birds but they work just fine. Lotsa maintenance, but so what? No different from the newest Joint Forces fighter.

              Consider that the CH series of helos can be used a buses, delivery trucks, etc, there is a distinct possibility that the mission was a ferry operation. Just moving the troops to a new AO and not a distinct combat op. The MSM is effectively incompetent and tends to parrot the official line. This leads me to suspect disinformation at all levels. Think about the politics of America’s darlings were gunned down after such a “grand and glorious” (bin Laden) mission outcome. Get that national fervor worked up.

              BTW I served out of Bragg, my daughter and son-in-law served out of Va Beach. I left when they wanted to make me an E-7, my daughter ETSed for college and my ex son-in-law in now a survival instructor for the Navy in Maine. Any guesses who he trains?

              I may be pro military, but it is time to bring the troops home. Our adventures in strange exotic lands has become ridiculous from the silly mission requirements to the massive expense. But the PTB want the oil in Iraq, the pipeline in Afghanistan and Libyan oil for USDs rather than gold.

              Wars are fought over resources and the public gets conned into going along based upon manufactured ideological differences. And the US lives on hero worship even if we have to manufacture the heros. (This should rile some folks, but been there, done that.)

          • When the money ain’t coming out of your pocket, that check ain’t hard to write. But then again shit does happen. Was there a shooter on the grassy knoll? Only God surely knows.

        • Let’s see now..the seals were about to squeal the truth…now, they’re dead.
          So, we expect a general to blow the cover on the truth….hmmmm.

        • Was the White House involved in the ambush of the members of Seal Team Six? An investigation is fully warranted, starting with the takedown of Osama bin Laden by SEAL Team Six in May 2011, their subsequent murder on August 6, 2011 and the actions of Barack Obama and his appointees before, during and after these events. Why did Obama release the identity of SEAL Team Six as the specific team that took out Osama bin Laden? Never before has a sitting U.S. President done this. Releasing their identity puts a bulls-eye on their backs by providing Al Qaida, Hamas and the Taliban (terrorist groups created by the Muslim Brotherhood) with the information they need to target those specific soldiers. It also openly provided their identity to White House appointees who have alleged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Now all that was needed was the time and location of a future mission for SEAL Team Six in order to take them out and avenge the death of Osama bin Laden, which appears to have happened. Why were the SEALs in a standard Chinook chopper instead of the Boeing MG-47E/G (the ‘Darkhorse’ which is a SPECOPS Chinook used by SEAL Teams)? At, Lt. Gen Jerry Boykin confirms that the National Guard Chinook was “inadequate” and “not designed for Special Operations missions.”
          From President Obama to Leon Panetta to Hillary Clinton and on down the chain of command, an investigation must find the answer to this question to determine who ordered the troops to conduct their mission in a standard Chinook instead of the Darkhorse SPECOPS Chinook. There are at least two members of Obama’s Appointee’s that should be questioned before Congress as to what they knew and who they informed. One is Rashad Hussain, President Obama’s new special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Another is Dalia Mogahed who writes Obama’s speeches and is an advisor, who comes from the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. If these people got movements of these Seals to the wrong people that would explain why they were ambushed by Americas Enemies.

      3. I’d like to believe this story, but then I believed Saddam had real WMD’s in stock too. This government has no reason to expect my trust, and I served them with all I could for 21 years.

        • Saddam did, in fact, have WMDs, and they are still being used against us (trust me, I have first-hand experience of this). What the media does not seem to know is that insurgents in Iraq have used chemical, biological, and nuclear agents against American troops, and all of these were recovered by the insurgents from Saddam’s old stockpiles. If you rely on the media for information, you are bound to have such misconceptions.

          This is the problem among the citizens of this great nation; they take what they hear from the media and repeat it in everyday conversation, in much the same manner and applying the same amount of thought as a parrot.

          Before you believe something to be true, do your own research! If you care to do so, I will be glad to provide you with the sources I referred to in countering your statement.

          • OMG you can’t be seious with this post.

            • Yo Scott, unless you were taking Saddam’s confession before he became a well hung Iraqi, then I can’t take your post seriously either.

          • Saddam’s men were also throwing babies from incubators.

            Now we hear that the Muslims in Iran are stoning women.

            In WW2, they made soap out of jew fat, lampshades out of jew skin, and fountains of blood in every town.

            Or maybe it’s just the fact that us jews control everything you see and hear in the media, and everything you read in the newspapers.

          • WMD.

            A damned loaded magazine is a potential WMD. A stick of dynamite is a WMD. Hell, Newsweek is a WMD of truth.

          • I have also read that Iraq did have WMDs.

            Note: The original AP article was printed in US newspapers. But, apparently in early 2009 this article was removed from US online archives.

            “The last major remnant of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear program – a huge stockpile of concentrated natural uranium – reached a Canadian port Saturday to complete a secret U.S. operation that included a two-week airlift from Baghdad and a ship voyage crossing two oceans.

            “The removal of 550 metric tons of “yellow cake” – the seed material for higher-grade nuclear enrichment – was a significant step toward closing the books on Saddam’s nuclear legacy. It also brought relief to U.S. and Iraqi authorities who had worried the cache would reach insurgents or smugglers crossing to Iran to aid its nuclear ambitions.”

            July 2008


            • I love how secret US operations all of a sudden become not so secret do you?

            • There have been IED attacks on American soldiers involving radiological weapons. On several occassions, insurgents buried 155 rounds, not knowing (or perhaps they did) that those rounds came complete with nuclear materials. When the IEDs were detonated, this created a “dirty bomb”. Mass casualty incidents resulted from at least 2 such attacks that I know of. A good source for related info is Jane’s Intelligence Review, which provides summaries of these kinds of things, and is widely recognized as a legitimate source by the intelligence / counter-terrorism community.

          • So …? Why are these insurgents fighting us again? What do they want? Do they seriously think they can take back their country? Seriously, they must have an agenda otherwise they wouldn’t be fighting, right? Is there any piece of dirt worth fighting and dying for? And if this is the case, why haven’t they given up yet?

      4. I think i’ve seen this movie before, the one where the elite team is killed and it’s supposed to look like an accident but the surviving members of the team know the truth, so they hunt down the high level government officials who gave the order…(cue danger music)

        • sound like rambo or something

          • No No….sounds like the movie “Sniper” with Marky Mark.

            • just when you think you got it figured out, your wrong!

            • Shooter! Sniper was with Tom Beringer

            • ‘Shooter’


        • You’re a funny fucker!

        • Heavy lies the tinfoil hat, huh?

      6. If you can’t trust a jew, who can you trust?

        We must keep relying on our Mossad “advisors” even though they put bombs in our choppers, like 2 days before the Falujah campaign a couple marines turned up hanging from a bridge. The marines then killed everything that walked in that town.

        G-d bless all jews.

        • Istillwantalincoln.

      7. the whole thing is propaganda mixed with cover up. The team was taken out cause they can’t have a team of people out there alive knowing the truth about that night and Bin Laden

      8. Everything is a conspiracy to Alex Jones, its ridiculous. We should all trust whatever the MSM tells us and obey the government at all cost.

      9. hmmm see if you get this line, can’t have a trial with no witnesses. And of course it was our goverment. These brave men have in fact died all to cover up a lie. What a shame.


        There has been far to much leaked on this story for it to be a little queekie-dink. (Seal Team Six) has been put under the spot light for some kind of fucked up political agenda!!!.

        Wake the fuck up!

        • our govt killed them cause they couldn’t risk the truth coming out that bin laden wasn’t killed that night and lied to all of us

      11. Bloodyfellow

        I hear that PAYBACK IS COMING FOR THIS….our goverment has drawn the line, I’m sure the seals are saying the same thing.

        • I hope so. It’s been obvious the fed-gov is immune to civil protest and complaint. Perhaps a military coup would be the best, least bloody/sacrificial outcome. FWIW, they seem to be the only remaining institution that remotely resembles the Old America, which since that is the same America by Mayflower grandparents invented for my benefit, is A-OK with me.

      12. I’m waiting on the movie.

        • popcorn? (with butter of course)

        • Wonder if Matt Damon will be the shooter.

        • You shouldn’t have to wait long I hear one is going to come out right before the next election.

      13. War is a business, that’s all it is. Do you think the corporations care if people die, from either side? No, killing IS the business. The Corporations make money when people from either side die. The more that die the more money to be made. The longer the war continues, the more money can be generated. The various “staged” psyops events; Osama’s phony death, these Seals deaths, the deaths of the “murderers” of the Seals, are major hyped up advertisements supporting their war effort.

        As the Marines will vouch for:


        The questions are; Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys”? Who are the insurgents? Who are the occupation troops? Is democracy being spread? Why is America in Afghanistan? Who are the criminals? How many U.S. military while on duty are drugged up? How many in todays US military enjoy killing just for the sake of killing?

        We live in a country filled with massive numbers of sick people. And many sick people are members of the armed forces. It ain’t what it used to be. It’s not about FREEDOM anymore.

        • “Why is America in Afghanistan?”

          Read my lips…FISSIONABLE MATERIAL!

          Afghanistan is a country very rich in Uranium, etc, et al!

        • excellent post, bravo EA BRAVO you nailed it on the head

        • Yes EA you are right, unfortunately war is a business and it’s the only thing we produce of any lasting value now. [even if it’s bad.]
          I spent part of my year in 05-06 there trying to produce some sort of positive change in Afghanistan only to see…really see the truth, so I could no longer preach the party line. Why I thought a coupla infantrymen could initiate a change in a group of tribal Neanderthal’s was indeed a fool’s errand.
          I wanted to fight…period. So I went.

          The real question is what did I learn? What did I take home with me other than shrapnel and concussions? What I found was…

          “WAR IS A BUSINESS AND BUSINESS IS GOOD!” and more importantly that I was just an expendable asset to a government that could care less about me or my family or my honor as a soldier.
          I was not used, I wanted to go but things do indeed change as the blood runs through your fingers. I was home just six month when they handed me my E-7 promotion papers with one hand and deployment orders in the other.

          I passed. With 12 years in the Army I walked away. I figured my kids needed a Father more than the Army needed a trigger puller.

          My only fear now is that the war has followed me home. If you’re interested here’s the book I wrote about my time there. You can read most of it on Amazon’s site.
          I’m not trying to sell you anything, just wanted to let you know where I’m coming from.


      14. I wouldn’t quote Alex, but I will tell you one thing I know for sure. ST-6 would not normally have 21 on a single bird.

        I don’t care if they were going out on Liberty; they all would not be on one bird. This hit on their bird is the exact reason they never use 1 bird.

      15. and now ol bluelips is selling classified information to hollywood for canpaigne cash!

      16. Newsflash. It’s the same guy that killed Pat Tilman (don’t believe that friendly fire BS) and the right hand of none other then OBL himself.

      17. It’s fluff man! We couldn’t find that Usama dickhead for TEN years, but we found this diaper-head in a week?

        …and some of you just keep swallowing!

        • LOLOLOL nice!

      18. I would be interested in finding out what their mission or orders were. I speculate that these folks would know if they were being set up and would make family members aware of that fact in case something went wrong. Being that there is a movie to be released on the seal team assault on bin ladens compound around election time I find that this all to coincidental and too tidy.

      19. Do we have another General Smedley Butler hiding in the wings? If so, SIR, Please stand up!!

      20. The insurgent was probably another American Seal that Obama needed to off. If this keeps up there won’t be any U.S. soldiers left alive in Afghanistan.

      21. Cover up. Since it may actually been a suicide bomber INSIDE the craft….

      22. check out veterns today. Have more insight than Jones town.

      23. This is baloney, that man who shot the helicopter wasn’t an “insurgent”, he was a citizen of a nation that has been violently invaded by a foreign military who’s been dropping bombs on his fellow countrymen.
        If Afghani’s invaded my neighborhood, I would attack them and I would NOT be classified as an “insurgent”, just a concrened citizen.

      24. BJ, I am with you…. There have been SO many lies from our government.. I firmly believe that those great warriors were assasinated to keep them from EVER telling the truth about the “killing of Osama”. Yet another sickening saga in our political history that we will NEVER get the truth about. I almost welcome the end of our great country, and my own destruction, just to put an end to all the lies, hypocrisy, and false flags. Good luck to all, I hope you continue to prep. I hope it does some good for you.

      25. Greetings Everyone!!
        Just stopped by to say that no matter what the current(or future government)people in power do,we CAN trust in God.Bible speaks of a time when “Judgment Day” arrives.All the FUBAR(i didn’t know what was meant by that until “Saving Private Ryan” movie came out.)My Father who served in WWII and Korea would use the term when talking to my Uncles,all of whom served as well.Never told me what it meant.I understand the term applies to the current situations in Iraq and Afghanistan.Especially Afg.First the British then the Russians both tried to “pacify” that dirty little strip of rock and sand before America decided they could do it.Both failed in a most spectacularly and massive fashion.It cost Russia it’s Empire and the same may happen to America.In spite of all the lies being told(The Bible says what’s whispered in the corner will be shouted from the rooftops.I.E. the lies will be uncovered and known to all.)I look fwd to the Kingdom promised by J.C. to his followers.It seems(to me,as least)to be getting rather closer as of late.Putting faith in God and following the “Golden Rule” might be a good first step to Everlasting Life in the Promised Paradise of God.Just saying, not preaching or pointing fingers or Judging anyone else.Just encouraging folks to trust in what the Bible states is the coming of something far better for all good people here on Earth.
        Best to Everyone
