Any Weather Mavens Out There? What Was Rainfall in Tangi Valley When SEAL Team 6 Was Killed? Could Black Boxes "Wash Away?"

The Pentagon claims the two black boxes aboard the helicopter were washed away by "flash floods," in a part of the world that is more like the Mojave Desert at that time of year. You can't tell me historical satellite imagery doesn't exist which could show us there was not a cloud in the sky the whole day, but I haven't been able to find such historical data, and when I have, I can't make head nor tails out of it. Surely such data/historical satellite imagery exists on the Internet.

If someone can put the lie to the Pentagpon's claim that there were flash floods in the Tangi Valley, Wardak Province, Afghanistan on August 6, 2011, it puts the lie to everything else, and busts it open. Sounds like a good crowd-sourcing Internet sleuthing project.

"Among their many suspicions, the families question the sudden replacement of seven Afghan commandos on board the helicopter just before takeoff. The seven who died in the attack are not the seven listed in the flight manifest. The families say that to this day, they don’t know the identities of the dead Afghans. Strange noted that the chopper’s black box was never recovered and doubts the explanation that it was washed away in a flash flood."

Precip estimates

Here are precip estimates for the region on Aug 5 and Aug 6.

Values are given in mm/hr for the entire 24-hr period.

The areas where heavy precip occurred appear to be at high elevations, so it is reasonable to suggest the water flooded the valley.

Reposting a few meteorological comments

Afghanistan is considered on the far western periphery of the monsoonal moisture plume that deluges India this time of year. But flash floods, do happen.

IMPORTANT: The Department of Defense news websites notes on their website that: "Meanwhile, efforts to recover the helicopter were disrupted by a flash flood that swept through the creek bed, washing parts of the wreckage up to 200 meters downstream, the report says."

OK AGAIN....up to 200 meters downstream. THIS IS ON A DRY CREEK-BED. (A "wadi").

AFTER THE WATER HAD CLEARED....YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT THE MOST ADVANCED MILITARY IN THE WORLD COULD NOT HAVE WALKED THE DRY CREEK BED AFTERWARDS LOOKING FOR EVIDENCE AND DEBRIS AND BLACK BOXES BEYOND THE "UP TO 200 METERS"?

Give me a break. I smell a rat!

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

Reposting a few comments from earlier...as this is important

The Shadow Government which controls the Military by puppet strings and threats...persecutes or even executes the strongest and most sane among the Military. I mean look what happened to Pat Tillman. He was murdered in cold blood.

Same thing with the SEALs. I know a LOT of SEALS....and these guys for the most part, are good and honorable individuals...excelling in every way. Total alpha individuals who would do anything for you.

Whenever they break away from being pawns in the game of the Globalist's agenda, however, they get offed.

And I think you are right, the TPTB (or as James Corbett calls them: The Powers That Shouldn't Be)...were in fear that these guys had ADVANCE knowledge of the real story behind the Osama Bin Laden double that was killed that night.

The whole thing stinks to high heaven. And don't even get me started on benghazi.

Who needs V for Vendetta, the Matrix, the Hunger Games...who needs any of that....when we have the actual even more bizarre history unfolding before our eyes?

You have hit the nail on the head.

Note the quote from the new black (orange) boxes.

"The beacon can transmit from depths down to 14,000 feet."

If it can ping down to 14,000 feet in the water I am pretty sure it can ping in depths of sand of a few feet in a wadi in central Afghanistan.

This event was planned.

Of course it was. Nearly all

Of course it was. Nearly all disasters in the world are arranged.

Meteorology buff here. Flash floods happen in Afghanistan.

They are rare...but they rush down dry creek beds from some distant thunderstorm upstream. This also happens in the arid parts of the United States southwest, as well as other arid areas across the globe that are subject to a monsoon season (which is typically July and August in the northern hemisphere).

Fantastic, let's keep running this down!

My understanding is they pump out a pretty powerful beacon signal too. Two of them?

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Yeah they do. Check out Cirocco's link above.

Pings to 14,000 feet below the ocean's surface.

Hey Shark, Do you agree with

Hey Shark,

Do you agree with me that the likely hit on SEAL Team 6 was due to fear among TBTB that some of the crew realized that OBL was NOT the one killed that night? Curious to get your opinion. Also, what do you think was the motivation behind Benghazi?

Dude we need to talk on the phone sometime.

Thanks for the invitation to

Thanks for the invitation to talk. I will take you up on that sometime. I haven't had much time lately to explore rabbit holes lol. But still want to learn more!

and of course...they wouldn't

and of course...they wouldn't think to have a GPS locator. Those are only to be used in the sheep's phones so they can be tracked everywhere they go.
