Oldest Military Blogger /Secret SEALs


United States Congressman Charlie Wilson found a way in 2007 to use American Taxpayer Dollars to help the mujaheddin in Afghanistan to defeat the Russians.
Suddenly, the Taliban becomes an American enemy and we confront them in Afghanistan. We try to help to establish a workable Government using “moderate Taliban citizens” to keep the peace until we withdraw.
The Taliban are now financed by Anti-American forces and also,some of the stuff we gave them to knock out Soviet Copters.
Congressman Charlie Wilson, who later paraphrased “whenever a plane goes down, I always fear it is one of our missiles. I feel guilty about that...I really do”.
The secrecy of the U.S.Navy S.E.A.L.s (Sea, Air and Land) was made known to me by author Tom Clancy, in my estimation a brilliant, talented fiction writer, who introduced me to, John T. Kelly, Chief Boatswain Mate, U.S. Navy SEAL.,in his 1993 book,”Without Remorse” .
To be a member of the SEAL Service, one must be so secret, that even his immediate family is restricted from that knowledge ..
The recent accolades, paid to the SEALs in their Osama Bin Laden episode, were remarkably
presented in the Media when it was released, by some sanctioned, official section of authority
in Washington......I Guess....I hope, that is the way our Information about secret exploits of our troops are handled......
The Chinook Helicopter downing was a terrible loss to American Forces and Domestic Citizenry,
everywhere.......However....My contention, is with the questionable release of the information about the presence of Navy SEALs aboard the Aircraft ... The mere fact, that the Taliban, immediately claimed complicity in the destruction of the cumbersome vehicle, was abhorrent to many.
Something is definitely wrong with some important, unanswered, questions !
Navy Forces going to help Army Rangers in the Desert and mountainous areas of Afghanistan???
What happened to the Rangers when their help did not arrive???
How many Service personnel were aboard the Chinook that had
a limited capacity of 35, including the 3 crewmen???
Who authorized the release of the 17 SEAL Casualties to the Media???
If you think I’ve left something out, besides my sorrow of it all....let me know.
“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes,
the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves
and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical.”
Thomas Jefferson

Hi Sol! Hope you are doing well. I don't think you've left anything out. NOTHING in this day and age is as it should be. I think that is a big reason I hate TV news now.

Thank you Pat ..I am much better.
Very lucky to have so many great friends as you, who have a genuine interest in my whereabouts. Wonderful to hear from you again.

Yes, you bring up a lot of good points that were missed by most!

solfine said...

Thank you Kanani,
Nice to have you back for a visit.
I am pleased that you think so highly of my thoughts, favorably commenting so early after my posting. I know that I am slightly out of my league in Afghanistan but I am very upset about the Loss of Good Men and how it is reported. I go to your Blog often and enjoy your wide range of interests.
Keep it up!
Solomon.

Such a travesty that the Taliban to whom America gave assistance to fight the Russians, now use these "arms" against US!
Such a travesty that 17 highly trained SEALs
lost their lives in this incident
...so devastating!
Such a travesty that reporting of the media,
leaves questions in our minds...
unanswered! BK

Hi There... Maybe its all a big lie to cover up what is really going on. The Government and the media only let us know what they want us to know for our own good (so they say). They certainly have their "Hidden Agenda".... good article ! SC

solfine said...

Hi SC,
The Big Lie has been around for a very long time where it concerns most governments...... especially when the public is the recipient of "the whole truth".
THE PUBLIC ?
Keep them in the dark, is the word of the DAY.
Mustn't upset them you know.....they can't handle "the real truth".
Ask any Congressman...That's something they study in their first year in LAW 101.
Then, after we elect them, they get a chance to SERVE THE COMMUNITY to the BEST OF THEIR ABILITY.......?

Welcome.... and please come again.
Solomon

It's like the Pat Tillman killing. They put their positive spin on things, then after sometime, we learn that it was not all it seems.

Yes, this has happened in the past, and as we see, it continues as in the Seal Attack on Bin Laden.

I saw a Seal on the team who is now retired has written a book on the real story. I can't recall his name but would like to get my hands on it.

Just from his short interview on TV. the whole scenario that Obama and the media put out was entirely backwards. Over time the truth always prevails...

Remember the cover story on the U-2 Spy plane incident? At first it was a NASA plane on a weather mission that strayed into Russia.
