Because of the catastrophic nature of the crash, the military has been unable to individually identify the remains of the victims, including those of Afghans. Pentagon officials said that meant U.S. military families could not give their consent to reporters to cover the repatriations, consent that is required under U.S. government policy.



NVESTIGATING THE CRASH

The U.S. military's Central Command said it named an Army brigadier general to investigate the crash. Given the number of elite special forces killed -- 25 according to one tally, with 22 of them Navy SEALs -- multiple probes are possible.

The Pentagon has not yet released the names of those killed, even though relatives have come forward to talk to the media. U.S. officials, speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said some commanders voiced concerns that releasing the names might endanger families of the elite teams.

The homecoming for personnel remains is among the most somber, dignified ceremonies for the U.S. military. But the Pentagon's edict barring coverage Tuesday rekindled friction between the Obama administration and the media.

At a sometimes tense briefing, Colonel Dave Lapan, the Pentagon spokesman, said reporters were not allowed to cover the event because of the extreme nature of the crash.

"Because we have no identifiable remains, there can't be family permission for media coverage," Lapan said. "They will see transfer cases but they will not know whether their loved one is in any particular transfer case."



One of the many issues observers expected to be investigated was why the elite fighters traveled in the Army-owned chopper, instead of a MH-47 more commonly used by special forces.

There are thousands of U.S. special forces operating in Afghanistan and they have been involved in more than 2,000 operations to go after specific militants over the past year, according to Pentagon estimates.

But rocket-propelled grenade attacks like this one rarely take down a helicopter and had not killed so many U.S. forces at once in Afghanistan until now.

Is it fair to assume that the reason they wont "release the names" is because there are no names to release?

Something stinks in here and its not me.....

Yeah, I just saw that too. Doesn't it remind you of the end of "The Departed"?

I told you as much a few pages back.

One other possibility here is that these elite seals needed to disappear.... What better way could they have to change identities and retire without fears of being hunted down?

Either that, or too many knew too much and the situation had to be controlled.

Take your pick.

In the end the whole thing has been entirely too conspicuous, and in my opinion is as much an open mystery as the death of Osama Bin Laden.

Worried that Obama administration officials may be providing filmmakers with “top level access” to classified information surrounding the takedown of Osama bin Laden to help paint the president in a favorable light, Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) has called for a federal investigation into the White House’s alleged collusion with Hollywood.

The movie is reportedly due for release in October 2012, which Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., notes is just a month before next year’s elections.

Of course he does, and what a surprise...he's a republican. Just more partisan distraction BS, from the 2 party scammers in power. Even after we've all seen how the staged drama is bringing our once great nation down, they continue to do it, with even more fervor. PLEASE PEOPLE, let's show them ALL the door!

Why can't we? It starts by stopping buying into their manufactured division, and fake scripted fights. We need to see them as the professional wrestlers they are, and not vote for them at all. Then once we get some fresh faces (not monopolized by the 2 party scam), we need to do away with "lobbying", or "campaign contributions". It's nothing more than bribery, and should be punishable as treason. If we can do those seemingly simple things, we can change alot in this country.

To clarify, a completely fictional CIA sponsored and endorsed movie, will happen.

A truthful and accurate docudrama never will.

The number has been revised from 22 to 17.



Hey, if they do it right, maybe with the passage of more time they can revise that number to zero?

My opinion on this, The ST6 members who carried out the raid, their identities changed, and are not going to carry out any more missions. I could be wrong just a thought there.

A few pages back someone said "not even the president knows the names of the ST6 members", But after the raid the members of the raid met the president.
warnewsupdates.blogspot.com...

And it is posted all over that the president meet and spoke to them.

Orrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

This unit was killed because some of the Seals in the unit knew their unit was being used as a hoax for the bin laden raid and they were getting suspicious and new their own unit was not apart of that Raid.


orrrrrr.... mosty likely you're right.....No conspiracy, THE END.
