This was so predictable - it wasn't even twenty-four hours after we got the terrible news of the Chinook tragedy SEAL Team 6, other US and Afghani military personnel in a non-SpecOps bird shot down by the Taliban, that the rumor mill started churning out speculation and outright misinformation. A reader emailed me asking if there was anything to a spectacular conspiracy theory making the rounds, and he included the base document: essentially, the SEALs had been set up for ambush by an individual within the Obama Administration in an attempt to silence them about the truth of who was or was not in that compound they entered during the Osama hit. Somehow of course this is all tied in to the Birth Certificate nonsense.

I sent a reply discrediting the conspiracy, why and how it could not possibly be, but had no intention of taking it any further - this site is dedicated to honoring our warrior class and there is no honor in re-transmitting this kind of horse hockey. This is a legitimate military blog, not a forum for the MoonBats of the Tinfoil Hat Brigade that populate every nook and cranny of both sides of the aisle.

Then early this morning Blogmeister Theo - mentor of STORMBRINGER and Enfant Terrible of the worthy site Last of the Few - emailed me and asked, "Is this bullshit or is there some thing in it?" Attached was the same email that I'd seen a week earlier. I include the text here only so that I may dismantle this outrageous theory by the numbers, and in doing so see that our warrior's honor may remain intact and that their spirits may rest in the Hall of Heroes in Valhalla, which no doubt is where they are now.

(WARNING: This stuff is straight out of the Bush-did-9/11-to-start-an-illegal-war-for-oil-New-World-Order-Illuminati-Bohemian-Grove School of Philosophy and I'm including as much of Part 1 and Part 2 here as I can stand - poor grammar, spelling errors and all - but I'm not including the link to the video because my Bullshit Meter is pegging out enough already as it is. For the same reason I'm not including the link to this Ann Barnhardt chick's website - I'll not be a party to propagating her garbage. - S.L.)


The Execution of SEAL Team Six (Part 1) Posted by Ann Barnhardt - August 6, AD 2011 4:08 PM MST

On May 5th I had an email conversation with a retired military man with spook contacts . . .

(Bullshit Flag #1: "retired military man with spook contacts" could be ANYBODY - Hell, I've got "spook contacts" in fact at one point I WAS a spook, even though the spooks didn't call us that they called us Sneaky Petes and we just called ourselves Snakeaters.)

All were in total agreement that the Bin Laden episode was pure theater. The SEALS were sent into a compound as evidenced by the lost chopper on site. But Osama Bin Laden wasn't in that compound. Osama Bin Laden has been dead for years. Bin Laden had a genetic condition that caused renal failure (this genetic condition is common among deeply inbred Saudi arab muslims). Bin Laden had been on dialysis BEFORE 9/11.

(Bullshit Flag #2: The-kidney-failure-dialysis-theory had been going around for years prior to 9/11 in fact back in '98 an analyst at CIA explained to me a school of thought: just leave bin Laden alone and let him die of kidney failure that way we don't make a martyr out of him. Absolutely no proof one way or the other on the condition of bin Laden's kidneys and if you looked at his videos and photos he certainly didn't LOOK like a candidate for dialysis)

Dialysis is difficult enough for people in first world countries who can have it done in outstanding facilities. Bin Laden was having it done either in caves or in homes post 9/11. People in renal failure having dialysis done in fricking caves do NOT live for ten more years. Period. There was no dialysis equipment found in the compound the SEALS raided on May 2. Of course there wasn't. Bin Laden wasn't in that compound because Bin Laden has been dead for years.

(Bullshit Flag #3: Could it be the absence of dialysis equipment simply confirms that the whole bin Laden kidney failure thing was a pipe dream concocted at Langley in the first place?)

This is why the "body" was declared "positively identified" faster than any known DNA testing process in existence - and this DNA testing was carried out not in a lab mind you, but inside a Chinook and/or V-22 Osprey helos en route to the USS Carl Vinson. The body was then dumped into the Indian Ocean in a mad dash to ensure that "burial" took place within 24 hours of death in order to "honor" musloid burial traditions. Not a single picture of the so-called "Bin Laden corpse" has ever been released - and never will.

(Bullshit Flag #4: The DNA results weren't immediately available they took time, and don't be in such a hurry to claim that no picture will ever be released - while I personally disagree with the decision not to release the picture that whole episode was carefully stage-managed and Obama is such a crafty pol I wouldn't be at all surprised if photos emerge some time prior to the election to make him look like a hero. Either that or the fact that bin Laden was shot in the back of the head and they CAN'T release THAT - Law of Land Warfare and all that . . .)

The entire Bin Laden episode was stagecraft. It was pure theater that was designed to give Obama a boost in the polls and give distraction and cover. Distract from what? Cover from what?

April 20, 2011: The release date of Dr. Jerome Corsi's book, "Where's the Birth Certificate" is announced as May 17, and pre-sales begin on Corsi's work is known to be extremely thorough and meticulous. Within hours, Corsi's book is #1 on - fully 28 days before its release. The Obama regime is panicked.

(Bullshit Flag #5: This is where the conspiracy theory really gets complicated . . . I know this is an ordeal but bear with me here people . . .)

April 27, 2011: In order to diffuse and undercut the Corsi book, the Obama regime releases a PDF image purported to be a scan of his original long-form Hawaiian birth certificate. Within hours, thousands of graphic designers, many of whom are self-professed Obama voters and supporters, isolate and demonstrate with dozens of objective proof sets that the PDF released by the Obama regime is not just a forgery, but an astoundingly incompetent and obvious forgery.

April 27 through May 2: The Obama regime is now in a blind panic. Deeming it too risky, instead of commissioning the forged birth certificate from document and photo illustration experts within the CIA or NSA, the Obama regime instead farmed the project off on someone inside the White House with a functional but middling knowledge of photo illustration programs. To the thoroughly inexpert eyes of Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett, the forged certificate file appeared extremely convincing, and was thus released with fanfare. Within hours, they knew that they had not only made a mistake, but a massive mistake that could land them all in prison. The forger was so incompetent that he/she didn't even flatten the image thus compressing and masking the component layers before posting it. And that was just the tip of the iceberg of glaring flaws and errors. The mainstream press was, so far, completely complicit in the cover-up of the forgery, but Rathergate proved that if the forgery debunking generated any mainstream traction whatsoever, the end could come swiftly. The Obama regime needed a big distraction and they needed it fast. They had been planning on holding the staged Bin Laden capture and killing until 2012 - for the thick of the campaign, and perhaps as an "October Surprise", but it would have to be moved up to now.

May 2, 2011: The Bin Laden operation occurs. In all likelihood, a low-to-mid level Taliban or insurgent leader is killed.

(Bullshit Flag #6: As with most conspiracy theories, this one falls flat on it's face right here with the sheer number of individuals required to keep their mouths shut in order to keep the whole thing secret and therefore effective against the public. First of all two entire platoons of SEALs have to be in on the scheme, then there's the medical personnel and whoever else accompanied ST6 on the raid - JSOC operations are "Joint" and typically include EOD attachments at a MINIMUM not to mention Delta guys were there as well, the mortuary personnel on board the Carl Vinson who prepared the body for burial at sea, and then everybody in the chain between the Whitehouse and the tactical operations center the raid launched out of. How many people are we up to by now? Somewhere between two to five hundred, I'd say.)

May 3, 2011: Within hours, Vice President Joe Biden destroys any notions of OPSEC and bellows to the entire world in public remarks at a dinner at the Ritz Carlton that the Bin Laden raid was carried out by "the SEALS".

(Bullshit Flag #7: There is no way known ANYBODY would make Biden a member of their secret conspiracy - unwitting participant or otherwise - the man is simply TOO STUPID to be depended on to do anything short of f*cking it up completely. In fact that's his value to Barry Soetero; he's Obama's Life Insurance policy - as long as Biden is #2 in line to the throne NOBODY is going to off Obama because the alternative is simply too unbearable to consider, even for the Democrats.)

Within hours Obama regime had gleefully leaked that the raid was carried out by "SEAL Team 6?, also known as DEVGRU. Up until this point in history, all DEVGRU activities and information had been highly classified. Now the term "SEAL Team 6" was blasted across every newspaper in the world, with Disney even moving to trademark the name. The Obama regime wanted the ENTIRE WORLD to know the name "SEAL Team 6".

(Bullshit Flag #8: The term "SEAL Team 6" isn't classified and DEVGRU is a part of the deception game the military has to play to keep the Freedom of Information Act requests from busting out servicemembers assigned to classified units - just like the Army denies the existence of a "Delta Force" and technically speaking they're right - officially it's SFOD-D and I'm not going to blurt out the other acronym but take my word for it who "SEAL Team 6" are and what they do has been open source knowledge for decades . . . just because the writer of this tripe didn't know and some Gen Xer over at Disney thought they could copyright a military unit's name and numerical designation only means two things: A) Jack, and B) Sh*t)

May 5, 2011: As I said earlier, I conversed with retired military contact with spook contacts regarding the obvious theatrics of the Bin Laden episode and the need for a cover-up by the Obama regime. The conversation ended with the following exchange:

(SEE: Bullshit Flag #1)

Ann: I'm on the US Military casualty email list. It would be NO PROBLEM to "hide" casualties. It's a steady stream out of Afghanistan.

Contact: look for training accidents in the eastern mountains.

May 6, 2011: Obama travels to Ft. Campbell, KY to openly "meet and congratulate" SEAL Team 6 members.

(Bullshit Flag #9: DEVGRU is stationed in Little Creek Virginia - everyone knows this. Everyone, that is, except this moonbat. 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR) a.k.a. Task Force 160 a.k.a. the 160th a.k.a. Task Force is stationed at Ft. Campbell. Obama probably had a photo op with a bunch of rotorheads. Very special, elite rotorheads, but rotorheads nonetheless. There is no way on God's Green Earth that ST6 operators - or Delta for that matter - are going to pose in front of a bunch of cameras and let the whole world know who they are. Ain't gonna happen, no way known. How stupid is this Ann Barnhardt bird?)

This receives huge press coverage, and the press declares the incident "a huge boost [for Obama] going into 2012." Video citation here:

(Like I said I'm not propagating this bird's craziness. Simply not gonna do it, not no how, no way.)


The Execution of SEAL Team Six (Part 2)
Posted by Ann Barnhardt - August 6, AD 2011 4:07 PM MST

August 6, 2011: A Chinook helo is shot down in Tangi, Wardak Province, Afghanistan. Within hours, before family notifications could possibly have been completed, global press accounts positively confirm that 22 of the 30 Americans killed were not just SEALS, but members of SEAL Team 6. Again, DEVGRU operations have been, up until now, highly classified. Today, the Obama regime made a point of immediately revealing the unit identities of the SPECOPS forces among the dead.
In the past, DEVGRU men and other SPECOPS men have been killed in action, but their missions were so secret and so crucial to OPSEC that their deaths were covered-up by the government and attributed to such things as "training accidents" and the like - and I have no problem with that.

(Bullshit Flag #10: MoonBat Annie has never heard of Blackhawk Down, apparently - or did I miss the memo that we'd somehow convinced the world that the entire Battle of Mogadishu was one giant training accident?)

These men understand going in to intense units such as DEVGRU that OPSEC is paramount, that they will never be publicly acknowledged for their heroism, and that if they are killed or captured in action, the government will lie about that in order to protect OPSEC and to prevent the enemy from gaining a propaganda and morale coup.

(Bullshit Flag #11: The Delta operators (and Rangers) who died in the Mog' were identified after the fact - I know because I helped bury one of them - Griz Martin is clearly identified in the book Blackhawk Down.)

Compare that reality with what happened today. The Obama regime distributed this information, and the Obama regime's lapdog press instantly splashed headlines declaring this as the Taliban's "REVENGE" for the "death of Bin Laden." As I write this now, the Drudge Report headline in bright red reads, "REVENGE: SEALS WHO GOT OSAMA KILLED IN AFGHANISTAN."

I'll say what everyone else is thinking but is too scared to say. The Obama regime is almost certainly directly complicit in these deaths. The time, location and most especially, the PASSENGERS in the Chinook were passed to the Taliban. Additionally, you can't take out a Chinook with small arms fire or even standard RPGs such as the Taliban use. The Taliban needed serious weaponry to take this helo down, and that serious weaponry needed to be in exactly the right spot at exactly the right time, ready to fire.

(Bullshit Flag #12: An RPG will blow a hole straight through either of a Chinook's two jet engines - one on either side of the rear tail - or the transmission and all the gears and shafts located between the two engines. Or you could blast away at the cockpit - hell, a .22 long rifle could pop through those plexiglass windows so you know 4.5 lbs of rocket-powered shaped charge (which is what an RPG is) could do the trick any day of the week.)

Why would the Obama regime kill Americans? I think the question is, why WOULDN'T the Obama regime kill Americans? The Obama regime is composed of Marxist-Leninist psychopaths. A glancing, superficial survey of 20th century history shows one glaring fact above all others: MARXISTS MURDER PEOPLE WITHOUT COMPUNCTION. Marxists also hate Americans, by definition.

(Bullshit Flag #13: I don't know about you, but conspiracy to commit murder is a BIG ethical dilemma for most people, and participating in the killing of people is NOT as easy as it sounds. There might be some wild-eyed, politically inspired leftists in the Whitehouse but if they were willing to go this far, I imagine we'd be having a whole lot more political killings on a local level than a complex operation like this one calls for.)

Three tacks:

1. The men on board the Chinook may have been some of the same men who participated or had direct knowledge of the staged Bin Laden raid and were killed to permanently silence them.

2. These DEVGRU men were killed to send a signal to the surviving DEVGRU men who carried out the Bin Laden raid to keep their mouths shut.

(Bullshit Flag #14: I know what kind of men these SEALs are because I'm of the same tribe and let me tell you, we don't scare easy. If I suspected for one micro-second that someone in my chain of command was responsible for the deliberate deaths of my comrades, THEY'D be the ones put on notice and their physical survival would involve going to ground and becoming invisible FAST because me and a lot of guys like me would going after them.)

3. Certainly, the release of the unit identity of the dead within hours - before even family notification could have been made (which requires an IN PERSON visit to the family, remember) was an obvious bow to Al Qaeda, the Taliban and the entire muslim world.

(Bullshit Flag #15: The individuals who perished on the Chinook were not identified for days after the family notification. This crazy bird simply does not understand how the family notification process works. Identifying the unit, and identifying the individuals are two completely separate things.)

This event was INSTANTLY propagandized by the Obama media as "revenge" exacted for Bin Laden's death. And remember, Bin Laden has been dead for many years. The raid of May 2 was pure stagecraft to distract the world from the release of the forged Obama birth certificate.

I am not a conspiracy theorist.

(Bullshit Flag #16: If you're not a conspiracy theorist, then how come you're spreading this incredible conspiracy theory that strains the imagination and fails the common sense test at every twist and turn of your convoluted theory?)

I can't stand Alex Jones or any 9/11 truther. I have turned down dozens of interviews with such types. In fact, I am a huge believer in the Lex Parsimoniae, which is sometimes called "Occam's Razor", which states that the simplest explanation is most likely the correct one. I teach this as part of my job, namely that the cattle markets are neither manipulated nor impossible to operate within at a profit. The reality is that the cattle industry participants do not make money because they are functionally incompetent. It is very, very simple. True conspiracies are very rare.

This entire Obama situation is a conspiracy, and I say that without the slightest hesitation. Obama is not a citizen of the United States, he is a puppet front for a cabal of Marxist-Leninsts including Soros, Ayers, Dohrn, Strong, Jarrett and many, many others. These people are enemies of the United States. These people are deeply psychologically damaged, and are capable of ordering people murdered in order to protect themselves and increase their own power. The three dead homosexual black men from Trinity United Church of Christ, Young, Bland and Spencer, all of whom were sexually linked to Barack Obama, were probably the first people specifically murdered by the Obama regime.
(WHATEVER - This is really getting crazy here.) The hundreds of Mexicans and the two American agents Terry and Zapata were murdered by Operation Fast and Furious in order to advance and increase the power of the Obama regime. These SEALS and the others on board that Chinook today were almost certainly betrayed and murdered by the Obama regime.

(Bullshit Flag #17: Just think it over for a second here; in order for this to have occurred as MoonBat Annie lays out, there would have to be an agent of the Obama administration located within the JSOC tactical operations center WILLING TO COMMIT HIGH TREASON and have a hotline to the Taliban located in that particular valley, so that the moment he became aware of the mission - because the Oval Office is not in on it each and every time a helo scrambles with some Special Operators on it - he's got to get on the phone to the enemy - from within a tightly controlled classified environment within a highly secured compound - and say, "OK Mohammed, the Infidels are on their way just as we planned it, so make sure you have The Device ready for their annihilation!" That right there is too impossible to pull off.)

Why did the Obama regime immediately reveal the unit identity of the SPECOPS forces involved in the first place, despite the fact that DEVGRU was highly classified? Why was the personnel composition of the Chinook released IMMEDIATELY today after the helo went down - before even family notifications could be made? WHY?

(Already went over this one - SEE: Bullshit Flag #14)

Why would you hand your enemy, Al Qaeda and the Taliban, a massive propaganda coup? WHY?

I'll tell you why. Because the Obama regime IS THE ENEMY. They are Marxist tyrants who hold the lives of Americans not just cheap, but in scathing contempt. They will say anything, they will do anything, and they will murder ANYONE in order to protect themselves and consolidate and increase their power. Please, I beg you, for the love of God and all that is good in this world, read the history of the Soviet Union. Read about Lenin and Stalin and how they murdered people without any hesitation. Read about how Hitler was constantly ordering the murder of his own officers. Read about Communist China. Read about Mao and the millions upon tens of millions of murders he ordered. Read about the killing fields of the Communist Khmer Rouge in Cambodia led by Pol Pot. PLEASE. Marxists MURDER PEOPLE. That is what they do. The Obama regime is MARXIST to the bone. If the Obama regime is not stopped, the 30 Americans murdered today in Afghanistan will be just the beginning. I promise you that.

Here, again, is the clip of Larry Grathwohl, who infiltrated the Weather Underground Marxist terrorist organization in the 1970s. The Weather Underground was founded by Obama's political godfather, communist mentor (along with Frank Marshall Davis), murderer, and ghostwriter of "Dreams From My Father", Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn. In this interview, taped in 1980 while Obama was still just an unknown undergrad foreign scholarship student at Occidental College, Grathwohl describes the leadership of the Weather Underground (which is Ayers and Dohrn) discussing what will be done with the "un-reformable, diehard capitalists" once they have overthrown the government of the United States. The answer is extermination in camps in the Southwest.
(This is way out there MoonBat-ism at it's best, folks.) The estimated total that would need to be killed? 25 million, which was 10% of the population at the time. Ayers & Dohrn already have overthrown the government of the United States via their puppet protégé, Barack Obama. They have guaranteed that the economy will collapse. The only thing left for them to do is suspend the Constitution and open the camps. I'll see you there.


(Bullshit Flag #18: MH- series helo's aren't necessarily armored to any great extent more than conventional helos. You can up-armor certain portions of the passenger compartments and the fuel cells are self-sealing, but the engine and transmission housings have to be able to radiate that heat off, and they have enough of a hard time mitigating the heat signature never mind cladding the things in armor that will keep the heat in. This is where this MoonBat bird goes straight to Double-Extra-Stupid-Ville and does not pass "GO", does not collect $200.)

The fact of the matter is that the Chinook crash is what it looks like right on the surface - there are simply too many good, honorable men and women in the chain for a convoluted conspiracy like this to even exist, never mind to keep it secret after the fact. The fact that she has no credible sources should alert everyone's BS meter. These SEALs were on QRF duty when the call came out to go to the sound of the guns, and they flew out on the first thing smoking. The Taliban had set up a helo ambush - hello? War against the Soviets, anyone? WE taught them this tactic, from our experience against the Communists in Vietnam who taught it to us. It is a tragedy of national proportions, and to be sounding off this kind of alarmist bullcrap over the bodies of dead American heroes is disgraceful, dishonorable and is a shameful thing to do to the families and fellow warriors of those who perished in the Chinook crash.

"That's my story and I'm sticking to it."


Honor Them.



  1. I've been waiting for an educated response to AB's posts. Very good analysis, thanks! for this.

    The only question I have is why so many ST6 in the single Chinook to begin with? Isn't there a directive to scatter them out, over a couple birds if possible?

    If not, there should be. That loss was of such a magnitude to engender such talk, however crazy it might be.

    And, did we really get the right Taliban responsible for it? We did search for bin Laden for almost a decade without finding him; what bird dog did we use to 'get the right one' so soon this time?

    Again, thanks for this.

  2. Excellent take-down. I work the support/intel side, and while not directly involved in this, know enough to smell something stinky in her analysis. Thanks. . .

  3. "In war, truth is the first casualty" Aeschylus (Greek tragic dramatist,525 BC - 456 BC)said it best.

  4. You see the word "spook" you know its bull. Not much more to it than that. I liked your take on it. Spot on!

  5. Thanks for the info...I have heard a lot of things and my B.S meter was twitching....

  6. Another theory I've heard is that one of the Afgahn fellows committed suicide so as to bring the bird down.


  7. TY-excellent post.

    and about the helo, Got this from a reliable SOF source:

    People have asked me all week: "Why a CH47?"....Answer: The other birds (Blackhawks, Little Birds, etc.) simply can't get enough lift to get over some of those high mountain ranges and the heat is degrading other platforms, therefore, confining them to lower altitudes. Only other viable option is that piece of shit CH47....a bird that took its first flight in 1954. In service since 1961 and has been responsible for deaths of 33 SEALs in last 6 years and 38 SF personnel in the last year alone.

    1. The CH-47 is an amazing helicopter, from personal sources and experience it performs very well at what its meant to. Otherwise why would it be the only option over the whole fleet?

  8. ^^^Those are brutal stats, Debbie. . .

  9. Thanks! I have 10 producers of horse-hockey in my pasture and none of it smelled as bad as that rumor......thanks for burying it so articulately!
