This week The Associated Press had articles about the recent deaths of 30 of our nation’s finest.

An Advocate headline read, “Deadly crash highlights role of U.S. special forces in war.”

Thirty U.S. servicemen were shot down by terrorists in Afghanistan, in what many feel was a trap set up to pay back the Navy SEALs for taking out Osama bin Laden. It’s a shame that the deaths of these heroes are pawned off as a crash incident.

The article went on to say that these men died “taking part in one of thousands of nighttime operations being conducted annually across the nation.”


It was reported that these brave men were going to the aid of fellow soldiers. Since the vice president identified who carried out the bin Laden raid (the SEALs) and the Taliban vowed revenge on them, it has been reported that security has had to be increased on the SEALs and their families.

Now the International Security Assistance Force (part of NATO) calls this incident a crash and will hold investigations.

Maybe someone should investigate the loose lips in Washington, D.C. And maybe The Associated Press should change its name to All Propaganda.
