If they aren't doing it on the books, they are doing it via their proxies.

They don't personally hand weapons over to anyone in the middle of nowhere. They only land and offload if it's a scheduled delivery to a government. They air drop them from cargo aircraft on pallets. With government deliveries they frequently charter another company.

Nine bodies have been recovered and identified. The aircraft has been found as well. Weather continues to hamper the recovery efforts. It's believed the last two bodies, both of crew members of the helicopter, are in the wreckage of the aircraft.

What is all the dialog about? What we are missing is that 11 of our servicemen have been killed! That means 11 families are suffering tonight. It doesn't matter what they were training for or who they are! It is a major loss to America.

God bless the lost and their families.

The pilots failed to switch from visual flight to instrument flight as they entered the fog bank, and became disoriented, leading to the crash.

Zaph, That does sound right to me. Normal procedure is to have one pilot visual and one on the instruments in marginal weather. So both were not following the rules...that's bull s#t! I think that they can't determine the cause of the accident so they are blamming the crew. Just my 2 cents.

Damn... MARSOC is a very tight-knit group and those guys won't be easy to replace.

Not that their deaths are more meaningful than anyone else's, just that it takes a lot of training and experience to reach that level.
