This is my first post on ATS, although I have been a reader for a long time now and to open I'd like to point out the typical anti-government conspiracies popping up in many of the posts. For any of you who've had the pleasure of military duty, and known any member of the SEALs, you'll first know that you know nothing at all.
I was very astonished that when OBL was killed (Which he was) that they announced the team that did it. We're talking about the SEALs, some of the best at that; the people who carry out the American black op missions, and do some of the most important things our military require. The SEAL I trained with wouldn't tell me the names of any of his team, the name of his team, where they operate, the missions they were responsible for... basically how many push ups to do... so in my opinion the naming of SEAL6 as the OBL unit was to create a "GI JOE" that America could feel good about... almost a positive media prop; a group of absolute American's we could rally behind for the "war."
What has me confused is that there has been information and pictures released of people who died who were supposedly SEAL members, which the gov't wouldn't do as to protect the families and other members of the surviving team. What has me saying "conspiracy" and I wouldn't really even call it that due to what the word commonly denotes, is that the SEAL's were killed... I think it's a move to allow the soldiers responsible for OBL's death, or the soldiers who represent SEAL6 to disappear back into the ranks.. what good is a black op unit what everyone knows of?
I don't think this is a "bad government controls everything and is scared of what the team will say" conspiracy... not to mention the government would have to knock off 1000's more of people from other SEAL teams, SF units, high ranking officers, government and pentagon positions.
To sum it up: in my opinion the helicopter crash was a way to cover up the identities of the SEAL members circulating back into duty.
Biden added, apparently oblivious to the reality that he had just perpetrated one of the more egregious leaks of national security information in recent history.
As a result, SEAL Team 6 members realized they had a target painted on their backs. That reality was hammered home in a May 10, 2013 Fox News interview with Karen and Billy Vaughn, whose son Aaron was killed in the chopper crash. Karen spoke first. “As soon as Joe Biden announced that it was a SEAL Team who took out Bin Laden, within 24 hours, my son called me and I rarely ever heard him sound afraid in his adult life….He said, ‘Mom, you need to wipe your social media clean…your life is in danger, our lives are in danger, so clean it up right now’,” she revealed.
“Something’s going on with the team. Somebody’s leaking things out. Something’s going on.” Savage asked: “Your son knew he was being sent to his death?” Strange’s response was chilling. “They knew,” he answered. “They knew something was up. Every one of them.”
Larry Klayman minced no words regarding what he thinks about this tragedy. “This is a scandal even greater than Benghazi,” he said. “There we lost four valued American lives; here we sacrificed 30 American soldiers. The big question is were these brave Americans sold out by the Afghani government as payment to the Taliban for the death of bin Laden?”

Why were they being flown into a combat zone in a helicopter made in the 1960s?
didn't want to destroy a newer one?

Thanks for the update Stormdancer,
I guess we could blame Biden and his loose lips sinks ships,
is the man just a buffoon? This is a good example of why
idiotic people like him should never hold a high rank office.

Reading the article, it doesn't state if any of those killed were part of the operation that resulted in the (so called) killing of OBL. However, I wouldn't be surprised if it was all of them.
No images of OBL and now, potentially, none of the SEALS alive to tell their story.
If this is the case, please can someone explain, how we are allowing them to get away with it.
None of the 22 SEAL personnel killed in the crash were part of the team that killed bin Laden in a May raid in Pakistan, but they belonged to the same unit.
