VIDEO: Extortion 17 – 10 Year Anniversary. Never Forget Our ‘Fallen Angels’!

On August 6, 2011 – three months after members of Navy SEAL Team Six killed Osama Bin Laden – Taliban forces took down a United States helicopter, call sign Extortion 17.

The attack killed the Air National Guard crew, seven unidentified members of the Afghan military, and 17 members of Navy SEAL Team Six – warrior brothers from the same team that had killed Osama Bin Laden just 90 days prior. Were the seven Afghan soldiers aboard that helicopter really undercover Taliban who either maneuvered the chopper within easy range of being shot down or sabotaged it from within?

Were the SEALs sacrificed on the altar of political correctness and deliberately flown into a known Taliban hot zone?

Don Brown, a former US Navy JAG officer stationed at the Pentagon and a former special assistant United States attorney, re-creates the wartime action, tells the life stories of the elite warriors our nation lost on that day and tears apart the official military explanation of the incident contained in the infamous Colt Report, which reveals either gross incompetence or a massive cover-up.

    The book about this written by the father of one of the fallen Navy SEALS, “BETRAYED” by Billie Vaughn is a must read for all.

    It portrays how the terrible Rules of Engagement in Afghanistan installed by Barack Hussein Obama led to this horrible, unnecessary loss of life (single largest loss of American servicemen in a single day of the war in Afghanistan). It also shows how the Chain of Command led by leftist Admiral McRaven made excuses for his own bad leadership and insulted the Vaughn’s in their own home by defending Obama.

    Billy and Karen Vaughn are the parents of a fallen Seal Team 6 officer, and they asked for the president’s resignation in a letter that was published on August 27, 2014, by the World Tribune.

    “As Commander-in-Chief, your actions — or lack thereof — Mr. President, cost lives. As you bumble about in your golf cart, slapping on a happy face and fist-pounding your buddies, your cowardly lack of leadership has left a gaping hole — not only in America’s security — but in the security of the entire globe. Your message has come across loud and clear, sir: You are not up to this job. You know it. We know it. The world knows it,” the letter said.

    Karen Vaughn also tweeted links to the letter shortly after it was published.
    Billy and Karen Vaughn are the parents of Navy Chief Special Warfare Officer Aaron Carson Vaughn, who was a member of SEAL Team 6. Aaron Carson Vaughn was killed in Afghanistan’s Wardak providence on August 6, 2011, when a Chinook helicopter that he was a passenger in was shot down, the non-profit group reports.
