What can I say? Your criteria for suspicion is in a different area code from mine. Yes I find it statistically improbable that two officers linked to
a false flag bombing have now fallen to their deaths a couple months on. If you don't, I wish you the best and I will torment your utopia no
ETA I see OtherSide has chimed in. Thereby supplying even more evidence that this story stinks.
ETA2 When was the last time an officer fell to his death out of a helicopter during this training exercise?

because: (no reason given)
They didn't "fall out of a helicopter".
They were dangling off the bottom of the helicopter, on a rope. Fast lining. Sort of like rappeling without a wall or a carabiner, nothing but a good
pair of gloves and some gonads only generally you go as fast as you can manage without breaking things when you hit the bottom. You can also do this
with a smaller line, a Swiss seat and a carabiner like the 101st does, and it's a LOT safer and more controlled, especially with a big ruck, but
it's a tad slower than just falling down the rope with gloves on.
Now, the question you have to ask is, 'what exactly happened here', the article is written in 'implication' and it's short on explicit fact. It
SOUNDS like the helo pulled up suddenly while they were fast roping, they went off the end of the rope and aiiiIIIIEEEEeeee.... kerplat! instead of
zipping into the drink and letting go of the rope.
It's not clear if the helo shook them loose or pulled up suddenly and they went off the end, or dropped straight down and slammed them onto the deck.
I've read a number of the stories and they're all sort of fact free, other than to state something happened at the helo end and the guys 'fell a
significant distance', but any of the three possibilities could fit that awful description.
Anyway, FRIES kills people all the friggin time.
