I just want to clarify something that I think some of you may be misinterpreting. Hopefully someone already cleared this up, but if not, here ya go.
Just because they were members of Seal Team 6 does not mean they were the exact team that raided Osama's compound.
Seal Team 6 has many different teams, and they are color-coded. For instance, red, green, etc...All ST6 snipers are a member of black team, as well as
their regular team. There are quite a few operators in ST6, so it may or may not be true that the same team that raided the compound were in the
helicopter that was shot down.
I actually read about this earlier today, and the article I read said that the Taliban claimed responsibility for shooting down the chopper. This
could be true, but it does sound a bit strange. I don't know what they used, because I thought they simply used RPG's, which were not really
designed for surface to air use, although they have been adapted by these groups for such purposes. I will have to go read some more of the
information to be able to get a more detailed picture of what happened, but I doubt that the entire story will be released.
For one, if they were on a real-world op, it will be classified, which means not many details will be released. I suspect they were flying relatively
low, probably preparing for a fast-rope or something, since I doubt they would be doing training exercises in hostile territory. Right now I think
this is exactly what it appears to be, although I harbor very minute suspicions that we are not getting important parts of the story. I will probably
change my mind once more information comes to light.
