The families of 17 SEAL Team 6 commandos who were killed in an ambush in Afghanistan during a helicopter flight to help Army Rangers pinned down by Taliban gunmen accused the Obama administration of deliberately endangering their loved ones for political ends.

During a press conference on Washington Thursday, family and advocates for the fallen troops called into question the rules of engagement that they say prohibited their sons from being able to return fire, and the White House's decision to announce shortly after the killing of Osama bin Laden that SEAL Team 6 was responsible for the raid.

"In releasing their identity, they put a target on their backs," said Doug Hamburger, whose son, Army Staff Sgt. Patrick Hamburger, served among the helicopter's crew.

The event was organized by Freedom Watch, a conservative advocacy group, at the National Press Club. One by one, fathers and mothers of the victims of the crash spoke about what they see as gaping holes or inconsistencies in the review of what U.S. Special Operations considers its most deadly incident.

In all, 17 members of the SEAL Team 6 counterterrorist force were on board the CH-47 Chinook transport helicopter, along with its Army National Guard aircrew, several support personnel and seven Afghan commandos. In all 38 troops died after the helicopter was shot down by what a review determined to be a Taliban RPG over Wardak Province, Afghanistan, on Aug. 6, 2011.

I am so glad this is finally coming out.... http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/05/09/families-fallen-n...

I don't know but it sounds

I don't know but it sounds like there were allied forces that were muslim that also died in the crash. So their imam made his prayer at the event...and after reading the translation it is hard for me to tell if it was misconstrued to be a verbal attack on the western guys...it could also be fairly benign. Its only words...sticks and stones.

Earlier, during his speech the freedomworks guy talked about the futility of the wars and how people had lost enthusiasm for them. I thought he was going to condemn the wars but instead he said things need to change so we can win the wars. Therein lies the problem...we put ourselves in harms way by getting entangled in a culture we do not understand and do not see eye to eye with. Why are we there?

Sounds a lot like Al Franken. Only more sincere.

Oh, man

I'm sitting here bawling. I hate this president and his admin with every fiber of my being.

what are all these soldiers doing in Afghanistan?

Why?

Yep.....

You beat me to it. It's interesting to hear the Republican side of it. See what were up against? Interesting that there's so little coverage (so far) on this, here, MSM or anywhere.

I'm 38 mins into this

With all due respect to Christian Aaron Vaughn.. The Imam is not blameless, that is not to negate the neglence of Hilary, who hs stepped down. There's the justice, and this confernce should assure Clinton is not going to be a candidate in 16.

Updated with YouTube of the conference

It's 3 hours, and the video seems to act weird. Hopefully there will be better videos later (maybe shorter series of videos rather than one big one).

Also included the link.

Updated post with official press release in WSJ

Still trying to find what other outlets are reporting this.

Shows up on U.S. Navy Seals.com (not affiliated with the U.S. Navy Seals, apparently): http://blog.usnavyseals.com/2013/05/families-of-navy-seal-te...

Hi I_T

Did you find any news on this? MSM got anything to say?

Just what's updated in the post.

But here's a link to a protest at the White House by the families.

no wonder the famalies are distressed

well, the "Commander in Chief" ............?

We Need More Whistleblowers!

Between Benghazi and now this, we need our brave people to speak up about how corrupt our government has become.

The question is

speak up to whom? Congress gave away its power to the executive branch, now others want these people to give up their jobs or maybe their lives to a branch of government that's neutered itself?

When congress stands up to the president and exercises its power under the United States Constitution should be the only time people speak up risking life and limb.

If anything, this demonstrates what a huge task lies before us as a nation.

One single person can change

One single person can change the world for the better if they speak out now and expose the criminals. Just do it. One life to live, do it right.

May God please protect, and help keep these families safe from harm.

What they are saying could bring down the entire Obama administration and the president himself.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Agreed.

dead men tell no tales.

this gvt. is completely criminal. Folks better wake up.

This IS the distraction.

There will be no false flag to distract from this, this is the distraction. This still pimps the story that they killed bin Laden.
The surviving SEAL Team members need to come forward NOW, before they are all murdered by their Commander in Chief.
You fella's can kill with your bare hands, you can survive in any extreme, you can go wherever you have to go... but can you blow a whistle?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

amen!

amen!

R3ovlUTION charles walker 8322474577

The items on the agenda buttress the Benghazi accusations

It's another nail in the same coffin.

That would be nice

forgive me if I don't hold my breath?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

WOW!

This sounds like a major event to me but I wonder if the average person out there even knows about that helicopter crash to begin with. Basically every day or so there is a new piece of huge news to distract the public with anyway.

Tell me about it. I remember

Tell me about it. I remember when Rupert Mudock was about to get nailed and suddenly a guy went nuts in Norway and killed a bunch of kids...

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.
