Many Americans believe that Joe Biden is responsible for the murder of SEAL Team Six after he told the world that they killed Osama Bin Laden. On May 3, 2011, two days after the raid, Biden publicly identified them to the Atlantic Council at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Washington, DC. In a clear, public act of betrayal, when he said:
“Let me briefly acknowledge tonight’s distinguished honorees. Adm. Jim Stavridis is the real deal; he could tell you more about and understands the incredible, the phenomenal, the just almost unbelievable capacity of his Navy SEALS and what they did last — last Sunday.” That breach of trust caused the death of some of our bravest American heroes.
Why would Biden sell out SEAL Team Six to the world if he knew that he was signing their death warrants? Was it on purpose, or was it just one of his many blunders? If it was only a “slip of the tongue,” he probably is as stupid as he appears in public, and he should face criminal charges. If it was for a more nefarious reason, he should be imprisoned and suffer the penalty for his treason and murder of America’s finest. Either way, he needs to go down and go down hard.
In a May 10, 2013 interview on Fox News, Megyn Kelly interviewed Billy and Karen Vaughn, the parents of SEAL Team Six member Aaron Vaughn. Aaron was one of the team members murdered due to Biden’s careless words. They discussed Aaron’s anxiety in response to Biden’s disclosure, “As soon as Biden exposed the SEALTeam who took out Bin Laden, within 24 hours, my son called me, and I rarely heard him ever sound afraid in his adult life,” said Karen Vaughn.
She described his tone in that conversation as extraordinarily serious. He told her, “Mom, you need to wipe your social media clean. You need to get everything off of it now.” When she asked what was wrong, he explained: “Mom, there is chatter, and your life is in danger. Our lives are in danger. So, clean it up right now.”
It was unsettling. “The community was very unnerved by that unveiling. So, yes, a target got put on their backs, and on the back of every group that worked with SEAL Team Six,” said Mrs. Vaughn.
On August 6, 2011, three months after Joe Biden’s betrayal, the Taliban shot down a helicopter carrying SEALS in Afghanistan under unusual circumstances. Our fallen heroes’ families feel that the government was negligent when putting such a large group of SEALS on one aircraft. They packed thirty-seven people, including SEAL Team Six, National Guard, Army Reserve, and seven Afghans into an old 1960s era CH-47 troop carrier helicopter, which is bigger and more cumbersome than the one they usually used. They did not design this helicopter for battle, nor had they retrofitted it since 1985. It was typically used to transport troops and equipment.
They customarily split up special force teams onto two different aircraft. SEAL Team Six trained and did all its special operations in the state-of-the-art MH-47 helicopter, but that tragic day they crammed them all into the old CH-47, which may as well have had a target on it. These families simply want to know why they were all put on the same helicopter rather than split up into two and why they used the troop carrier instead of their usual helicopter.
Their questions have gone unanswered for all these years, and when the government did speak, it lied. For example, there’s the question of, Why they didn’t return fire? The Department of Defense lied to Congressman Tom Rooney R-FL when he asked them this question. They told him, “The reason we didn’t return fire was that we didn’t know where the shots came from.”
Karen Vaughn reported that even in the pitch black, General Colt told the families they could see two men on the rooftop. “They call up the Afghan administration to find out at two o’clock in the morning what these guys are doing on the building.” They knew the shots came from the roof.
After attending a five-hour military briefing explaining the ‘lucky shot’ that took out Extortion 17, and what happened the day their son died, Billy and Karen Vaughn realized something was wrong and began to research themselves. During this briefing, the DOD gave them a CD containing documents relating to events surrounding the crash. They did just what the DOD discouraged them from doing. They studied and poured over the material to understand everything they could about what happened to their son and his companions.
The government considered the mission to be so dangerous that a Commander outside the theater had to decide whether to give the “go” order. To this day, nobody knows who gave that order or why. When asked why the SEALS even went on the mission, some people told them it was necessary, while others said it wasn’t. Several Rangers and SEALS told the Vaughns that they must have had information that said they had to leave quickly without having time to get a second helicopter for all of them to get on one chopper.
Once the Vaughns started digging, they found out that SEAL Team Six had no cover fire and weren’t allowed to return fire because of Obama’s “Rules of Engagement.” Rules of Engagement are “rules or directives to military forces (including individuals) that define the circumstances, conditions, degree, and how force, or actions which might be construed as provocative.” The Obama/Biden administration would not permit American forces to take out the attackers.
They told the families, including the Vaughns, that new Rules of Engagement dictated that they couldn’t shoot down any attacker even after being attacked because “We want to win their hearts and minds.” A lot of good American men and women died under Barack Obama’s watch because of his misguided or even nefarious desire to “win the minds and hearts of the enemy.” The rules of engagement our troops were forced to use cost many American lives.
Barack Obama allowed them to hold the funerals in Kabul, where a Muslim cleric recited a prayer over the bodies where people believed it would confine them to eternal damnation as infidels. Obama may not have personally given the order, but he set the conditions and protocols that caused it.
This event was the most significant loss of life in a single day during the war in Afghanistan. According to the 1250-page military report, it a lucky shot by the Taliban. The families of those murdered and military experts at a press conference held on May 9, 2013, call it a lie, among many other myths.
On January 4, after the Vaughn’s started poking around into the buried facts, high-ranking officers—Admiral William McRaven, commander at US Special Operations Command—visited them. He told them to keep their mouths shut. In a radio interview, Karen Vaughn told me, “The most shocking thing we experienced is that he lied to us so continuously that if we had not studied our documentation and known the truth, he would have made a mockery of everything our sons died to represent. It got to be actually embarrassing.”
What happened on August 6, 2011? What went wrong? The military later told them that they could have easily used a drone to take out the Taliban positions before the operation started. They said they didn’t because there were possible “friendlies” among the Taliban, and the United States wanted to “win the minds and hearts of the enemy.”
Billy Vaughn spoke about the Obama/Biden military goals at the press conference:
“Aaron did not become a Navy SEAL Team Six Gold Squad to win the hearts and minds of the Islamic jihadists. He became a Navy SEAL to fight for this republic and defeat the enemy!”
Karen told us, on the same radio interview:
“This is not about politics. It is about men and women who bravely, fearlessly, volunteer to serve our nation, and then they were served up to the enemy for our guise of political correctness. It’s not acceptable.”
As early as May 11, 2011, the military knew that possibly as many as 100 Taliban waited, ready to shoot down SEAL Team Six in Afghanistan’s Tangeen Valley. Our leaders knew that the Taliban was planning on firing on a helicopter and gunning for our SEALS. Although a fierce battle had been raging for several hours, and conventional protocol mandated that the CH-47 required at least one gunship escort, they suspended all standard rules of war. Because of Obama’s Rules of Engagement, soldiers on accompanying aircraft couldn’t do anything but watch in horror as the enemy destroyed Extortion 17.
Seven Afghan men on board the CH-47 slipped into the chopper at the last minute, replacing seven other passengers. They never even changed the manifest, raising the question, “Were seven Afghan commandos loaded onto the CH-47 along with their American counterparts?”
It was as if someone knew they were going on a suicide mission and pulled them out. The official report never addresses nor mentions this. Those “in the know” believe that the Afghans alerted the Taliban that the CH-47 was on its way. The Taliban had to know the exact time and route used by the CH-47. When the Vaughn’s tried to find out who gave the order to remove the seven Afghans and replace them with the seven unnamed men, nobody knew, though they suspected that it was an American officer.
The bodies were cremated without the family’s permission, supposedly because of the burns’ severity on the bodies. According to Charles Strange, father of Navy SEAL Michael Strange, the need to cremate everyone aboard was a lie. Taliban, on the ground, found the bodies of the crew. Did the Obama administration cremate everyone to cover something up?
According to the military investigation, officials told the families the CH-47 black box was “lost,” “washed away by an Afghan flood.” As most people know, aircraft black boxes are nearly indestructible and carry a tracking device, making them easy to find. They rarely get lost.
When we asked the Vaughns what it would take to protect our men and women in the armed forces, they responded with two things.
First, they said we need a Congressional hearing on Extortion 17 to get the facts out. That is the only way the families will have peace, and the nation can be sure that our enemy won’t shoot another aircraft full of our bravest out of the sky to cover someone else’s crimes or lies.
Second, they said we need a Congressional hearing over all the Rule of Engagement for all our military. The Rules of Engagement come from the White House, and the only way to change those deadly rules is to get Congress involved.
Karen further explained:
“We (they) were recently told by a Special Forces operator that under the current ROE’s if the enemy fires on you, then runs back behind a rock, when he pops his head up from behind the rock you’re not allowed to engage him unless you can verify that he has not laid his gun down. In other words, you must be fired on twice now or your actions will be questioned by your government when you try to defend yourself or the lives of your teammates. You even run the risk of criminal charges.”
For years we have watched in horror as people like Job Biden, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton destroyed our nation, and put our children and grandchildren at risk. During those years, I feared that my grandchildren would join the military, and Obama would be their Commander & Chief.
Things have changed now. President Donald Trump is my nineteen-year-old granddaughter’s Commander & Chief, as she proudly serves as a Navy Corpsman at the hospital in Great Lakes, IL.
