This was an outstanding hour, I was in tears most the hour watching it.......  when you watch this and learn all the details you realize these men were sent in to die....  one of the dead Seals told his mother that you can never tell the Afghans when or where you are going on a mission because they will tell the Taliban and then they will be there waiting for you with hand-held weapons.

They were all special, special men.  We have lost too many good people to this war.  One of the kids never should have been accepted in the military much less a seal because of a prior injury he had to his leg, yet he persevered and became a Seal with a K-9 partner - who died with them that day.  They are both now memorialized in a sculpture  in a park in their honor in his hometown, the only part of his body that remained was the part of his leg that had been replaced due to his long ago injury.. his mother thought that was fitting somehow.  But there is no doubt these men were sent into an ambush......

Clearly so..  I am certain they will replay this, I want to watch it again.., there was a lot in the hour.  Laurie Dhue used to do a lot of good investigative pieces on FOX and now she is doing it on THE BLAZE. Beck did a good thing hiring her.....  HE is slowly building an outstanding network.  Spending his own money to do it the right way, he doesn't want to be FOX Lite... he is a libertarian and is building basically a constitutional and libertarian-leaning network.. but these investigative reports has been his dream for two years and now they are doing it.. this is the fourth piece she has done since he hired her.  Sadly this is something FOX should have done with its wider audience.

Agreed. it was an ambush.

The only question I have about that is who was responsible for it. While no doubt this statement is true: one of the dead Seals told his mother that you can never tell the Afghans when or where you are going on a mission because they will tell the Taliban and then they will be there waiting for you with hand-held weapons., that was a known threat and could have been dealt with. Other factors, though, like using the wrong helicopters, the overcrowding, cannot.

I hope the Blaze can get to the bottom of this. It is a national disgrace and a tragedy for the families affected.

Beck has been an unyielding supporter of our military, if anyone will take this on, he will.

My mind keeps harking back to how Biden outed this unit as the one which took out bin Laden and how this must have created a thirst for revenge on the part of al Qaeda and the Taliban. I have become so cynical and distrusting of this administration I am not even sure if that admission was inadvertent.

One of the mothers said when the happened her son called and told her to wipe all record of him and his friends from the families social media so they were not connected to each other, she said he had never sounded to concerned.......
