KABUL | Wed Aug 10, 2011 10:26am EDT (Reuters) - Late last Friday night, special forces troops from the NATO-led coalition launched an operation to capture a Taliban leader in an inaccessible valley southwest of Kabul. A few hours later 38 troops -- 30 of them Americans -- lay dead in a transport helicopter destroyed in the worst single incident suffered by foreign forces in 10 years of war in Afghanistan. Little, if any, information was available soon after the crash, mainly because "a cone of silence had been ordered from the top," one senior military official said. Reuters has been able to reconstruct a clearer picture of the circumstances of the crash after interviews ...

Bradford Wells hugs husband Anthony John Makk (right). Makk is the primary caregiver for the AIDS-afflicted Wells.Washington -- Citing the Defense of Marriage Act, the Obama administration denied immigration benefits to a married gay couple from San Francisco and ordered the expulsion of a man who is the primary caregiver to his AIDS-afflicted spouse. Bradford Wells, a U.S. citizen, and Anthony John Makk, a citizen of Australia, were married seven years ago in Massachusetts. They have lived together 19 years, mostly in an apartment in the Castro district. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services denied Makk's application to be considered for permanent residency as a spouse of an ...
U.S. Helicopter ‘Crashed In Taliban Trap’
Post Date: 2011-08-08 11:59:11 by Brian S
The Taliban lured US forces into an elaborate trap to shoot down their helicopter, killing 30 American troops in the deadliest such incident of the war, an Afghan official said Monday. A total of 38 people -- 30 US troops, many of them special forces, plus seven Afghan commandos and an interpreter -- were killed when their Chinook came down during an anti-Taliban operation late Friday. The crash marked the biggest single loss of life for American and NATO forces since the US-led invasion of Afghanistan toppled the Taliban in late 2001, shortly after the September 11 attacks. The senior government official told AFP on condition of anonymity that a Taliban commander, Qari Tahir, lured US ...
Breaking News: “Bin Laden” Heroes Probably Murderered to Keep Them Quiet; Some Possibly Killed in Abbottabad Helicopter Crash Months Before
Post Date: 2011-08-08 00:58:52 by Brian S
By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor Today 31 NATO troops, 20 of them Navy Seals from the Osama bin Laden operation died in what is reported as a helicopter crash in Afghanistan. The chances of this story being true is almost nil. The chances of this being a staged coverup is over 80%. We believe these people were murdered to silence them. This is why. We have solid information on two areas: Osama bin Laden died in 2001 as an active CIA employee and his body was recovered in Afghanistan and taken to the sand box. We were told it was frozen. We have so much verification from this, CIA, ISI, US military and top officials. I have a direct ...
Deaths of SEAL Team 6 Exposed (Obama hit, dead men tell no tales) [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2011-08-06 18:45:41 by Hondo68
Associated Press sources are reporting a statistically impossible tragedy for U.S. forces in Afghanistan-- that of the 38 NATO forces killed in a helicopter crash Friday night, "more than 20" were members of SEAL Team 6, the covert unit that took credit for killing Osama bin Laden in May. Mainstream sources are seizing upon claims that the Taliban took credit for downing the helicopter, but that means nothing. Media instantly ran reports that al Qaeda was responsible for the bombing & shootings in Norway; moreover, anyone on a message board can make such claims. Instead, Alex Jones predicted shortly after the raid on bin Laden's compound that SEALs would soon be reported ...

The Associated Press has learned that more than 20 Navy SEALs from the unit that killed Osama bin Laden were among those lost in the helicopter crash. The operators from SEAL Team Six were flown by a crew of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. That's according to one current and one former U.S. official. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because families are still being notified of the loss of their loved ones. One source says the team was thought to include 22 SEALs, three Air Force air controllers, seven Afghan Army troops, a dog and his handler, and a civilian interpreter, plus the helicopter crew. The sources thought this was the largest single loss of life ever ...
Afghanistan Crash: 31 American Special Forces Killed In Worst Single Incident In War
Post Date: 2011-08-06 11:24:25 by Brian S
Taliban insurgents shot down a NATO Chinook helicopter that was taking part in an overnight mission in Afghanistan, killing 31 American Special Operations forces and seven Afghans who were aboard, according to a statement issued by Afghan President Hamid Karzai. The numbers are still unclear as there was no official confirmation from NATO, but it would amount to the worst single-day toll for American forces in Afghanistan since U.S. troops entered that country nearly 10 years ago, and one of the largest tolls in a single incident of either the Afghan war or the fighting in Iraq, reports McClatchy. The New York Times talks to a coalition military official who said ...
NATO Plans Campaign In Syria, Tightens Noose Around Iran
Post Date: 2011-08-05 14:27:09 by Brian S
NATO is planning a military campaign against Syria to help overthrow the regime of President Bashar al-Assad with a long-reaching goal of preparing a beachhead for an attack on Iran, Russia's envoy to NATO Dmitry Rogozin said. The UN Security Council condemned on Wednesday ongoing violence in Syria and urged the country's authorities to stop using force against peaceful protesters, while saying the current situation in the country has not yet called for NATO interference. "[This statement] means that the planning [of the military campaign] is well underway. It could be a logical conclusion of those military and propaganda operations, which have been carried out by certain ...

It was atypical. While its well known that U.S. ...
Rebel Feud Puts Libya Policy In Jeopardy
Post Date: 2011-07-30 12:31:03 by Brian S
The credibility of the British-backed rebel forces in Libya has been thrown into doubt after the shock assassination of a top military commander led to claims that the movement is enmeshed in a bloody internal feud. Increasing evidence has begun to emerge that the savage killings of General Abdel Fatah Younes and two other senior officers who were shot and whose bodies were burnt may have been carried out by their own side. The news of the deaths led to outbreaks of violence in the opposition capital, Benghazi, yesterday, with troops loyal to the General and members of the large and powerful tribe to which he belonged, the Obeidis, vowing retribution. The killings came at a ...

15,000 US Troops to Remain In Iraq, Renamed “Diplomats”
Post Date: 2011-07-18 18:13:24 by Hondo68
At least 15,000 US troops will stay in Iraq beyond the December 31 deadline which the Obama administration promised would bring a complete withdrawal of American forces. The majority of the troops will receive a "cover designation" and be labeled "diplomats," but their job will be to protect oilfields and serve four giant military bases that will ensure the occupation remains permanent. Confirming our earlier reports, the Israeli intelligence news source DebkaFile released a briefing to its subscribers this past weekend entitled, Four Big Air Bases, 15,000 Troops: For Defending Baghdad and Oil, and Facing Iran, which detailed how the occupation would be prolonged under ...
U.S. Formally Recognizes Libya Rebels
Post Date: 2011-07-15 11:53:34 by Brian S
ISTANBULThe United States and other nations on Friday formally recognized Libya's main opposition group as the country's legitimate government until a new interim authority is created. The decision, which declared Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi's regime no longer legitimate, will potentially free up cash that the rebels fighting Libyan forces urgently need. The front lines in the Libyan civil war have largely stagnated since the popular uprising seeking to oust Kadafi broke out in February. Rebels, backed by NATO's air force bombings, control much of the country's east and pockets in the west. But Kadafi controls the rest from his stronghold in Tripoli, the ...

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told American troops in Iraq that the U.S. will do what we can unilaterally to stem Iranian-backed attacks on their bases and convoys, in addition to working with Iraqi authorities. Number one, well put pressure on the Iraqis to go after Shiite Muslim militia groups, Panetta said today in Baghdad, expressing frustration that the Iraqi government isnt acting more quickly on a number of issues. That includes Iraq deciding whether it will ask the U.S. to keep some forces in the country beyond a planned December withdrawal, he said. Panetta, who was sworn in July 1, said the U.S. is starting joint operations with Iraqi forces ...

Senate Abandons Authorization Of Libya Conflict
Post Date: 2011-07-06 11:37:47 by Brian S
WASHINGTON The polarized US Senate hastily abandoned plans to vote Tuesday on a symbolic resolution authorizing the US role in Libya after a Republican insurrection to demand action on the country's debt woes. "We've agreed, notwithstanding the broad support for the Libyan resolution, the most important thing for us to focus on this week is the budget," Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced as he scrapped debate on the measure. His comments came after several angry speeches from Republicans complaining that Reid had cancelled a cherished annual week-long July 4 recess to discuss how best to rein in the galloping national debt.

Qaddafi Can Remain in Libya If He Resigns, Faces Justice, Opposition Says

Muammar Qaddafi can remain in Libya provided he resigns and is prepared to face prosecution, said Jalal el-Gallal, a spokesman for the rebels National Transitional Council. Qaddafi must relinquish power -- him, all members of his family and his inner circle, el-Gallal said in a phone interview from Benghazi today. He must not be given immunity from prosecution and then he can stay or he can leave. If he stays, he must face justice. I dont think any of these are options in his book.

They were physically intimidating anyone calling for help from the police. They were surrounding cars.
