US Navy Seal's apparent suicide in Afghanistan under investigation

Either this guy really saw some disturbing things or he really pissed someone off. Commander Job W Price died from non-combat related injury while supporting operations in Uruzgan province.

US military officials are investigating the apparent suicide of a Navy Seal commander in Afghanistan.

Navy Seal Commander Job W Price, 42, of Pottstown, Pennsylvania, died on Saturday from a non-combat-related injury while supporting stability operations in Uruzgan province, Afghanistan.

A US military official said the death "appears to be the result of suicide". The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the death is still being investigated.

No one knows, so please don't say.

It may have been as simple as boyhood memories...or as some of you speculate.

Another fallen.

Sad indeed!

He is not immune from the hell of war...Seal or not.

They are trained to be what is almost beyond capacity, yet many are at capacity with ingrained human emotion and conscious.

This death is way too high up to ask the usual questions.

This man was the Seal Commander in Afghanistan. Previous head injuries, number of tours of duty, psychiatric diagnoses, and psychiatric medications should not have been factors related to his "suicide." Instead, the questions are: what did he know, who wanted him dead, and who was guarding this Commander at the time of his death? Jesse Ventura should have something to say about this sad news.

Your 100%

And I forgot about Jesse V, he was a seal himself , no?

Silenced Whistleblower?

Perhaps he was about to come clean on Abbotabad. ZERO DARK THIRTY is about to come out, plenty of attention on it already, perhaps he was going to come out on TV and say Bin Laden was killed back in 2002....Needless to say there are people who wouldn't want that to come out.

BTW This is the most conspiracy theory I have ever posted.

I saw this news and was thinking along the same waves.

INDEED.

This hits really close to home and one of my best friends has lost so many SEAL brothers he can't see straight and I am afraid to call him right now on this one.

But no kidding...a COMMANDER?

Once people wake up to the unsettling idea that there are dark forces within our government that don't represent our interests and quite frankly, are trying to kill off all of our alpha males.

What more convenient way to weaken a population, than this?

Once people understand that, and are awakened to the idea that Pat Tillman was probably murdered by these same dark forces...they will begin to recognize who the REAL enemy is....and we have that....domestic enemy number one.

MAY WE STOP THIS ENEMY BEFORE IT TAKES ANOTHER LIFE!

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

the truth is coming out...

can we be wise enough to hear it and strong enough to do something about it?

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

People have the choice not to join the military.

Glorification of the military is an "enemy" we've had little success counteracting; after all, the uniforms and pageantry and songs look so dignified.

And some of our most "Christian" young people see that the USA is right to go on the attack in the Middle East! That's how deep the delusion is.

So what hope is there, of turning the tide? People will keep joining the military; people at the DP will mark down my post because I'm challenging this Sacred Cow.

Voted up!

And the hope is that there will be a sea change in peoples' perspective of when to go to war.

And that is occurring.

The events of 9-11 will be the last false flag event to deceive a population into war...I will go to my grave making sure.

Why would you get marked down?

There good comments and your right on. Glorification of our troops at every major sporti g event and TV commercial makes me sick. Our military is being used for purposes uninteded by the constitution.

I'll even goes as far as up voti g you + 1
