The betrayal of Navy SEAL Team 6 was a claim since the August 2011. Since then, the one question is particularly active within U.S. Special Operations community; what really happened to Navy SEAL Team 6?

So far, there were numerous theories what happened on that day, which is the worst battlefield calamity in U.S. Navy SEALs history. It also included claims that Joe Biden revealed the identities of the SEAL Team 6 operators shortly after Bin Laden operation.

Call sign: Extortion 17

On August 6, 2011, Taliban fighter shot down from the sky a Chinook helicopter with 38 persons on board, including 22 members of elite U.S. Navy SEAL Team 6. They were deployed to action in the Tangi River Valley of Afghanistan when a chopper (call sign Extortion 17) suddenly was shot down. 22 U.S. Navy SEALs, 9 U.S. military personnel and seven Afghan soldiers were killed on that day.

A year ago, before they were killed, members of U.S. Navy SEAL Team 6 had attained international prominence for one particular reason: They were responsible for the Operation Neptune Spear which resulted with the death of world’s most wanted terrorist, Al-Qaida founder, Osama bin Laden.

Since then, there are claims that American heroes were betrayed by their own government. According to online reports, only a few days after the bin Laden operation, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. — in a pathetic attempt to spike the football and gloat — publicly revealed their central role in the raid.

For ordinary people, that was seen as praise for what they did, but for professionals, it meant that his revelations put a giant target on the backs of every Navy SEAL Team 6 member. A top secret unit for cover operations, whose mission is to operate in the murky shadows, was exposed as the group that eliminated al Qaeda’s chief mastermind.

Mr. Biden’s reckless actions — followed by President Obama’s own words acknowledging the secret unit’s operation — jeopardized their safety. All kind of scum bags bent on revenge and began an intense manhunt. It’s the situation when situation changes and the hunters became hunted.

Upon hearing of Joe Biden’s disclosure, Navy SEAL members were shocked. Many of them immediately contacted family members, warning them to eradicate all personal information from social-media sites. Aaron Vaughn, one of the SEALs eventually killed in the ambush, told his mother, Karen Vaughn, to delete every reference to SEAL Team 6 from her Facebook and Twitter accounts.

“I never heard Aaron this concerned and worried in his entire life,” Mrs. Vaughn said in an interview. “He called me and said, ‘Mom, you and Dad have to take everything down. Biden has just put a huge target on everybody.’”

Tragically, it looks like Aaron Vaughn was right. He probably was aware that this could become a serious security threat to team members. The cheap political points were taken on their occasion, and a highly sensitive covert operation was compromised and at the end, it cost dozens on U.S. lives.

Bigger scandal than Benghazi?

A radio commentator on WRKO AM-680 in Boston, Jeffrey T. Kuhner, wrote for Washington times about potentially bigger scandal than Benghazi, Libya, claiming that the administration — along with the top military brass — are desperately trying to cover up what took place on August 6, 2011 when Navy SEALs were on its way to that fateful raid.

Further, he wrote about the possibility that Taliban were waiting for the Chinook helicopter as it approached its landing site. That means that there was possibility that someone tipped off that the SEALs were coming; the helicopter was attacked from three sides in a coordinated ambush.

The U.S. military claimed that the helicopter was blown to pieces by a shoulder-fired missile, in which everyone on board was burned beyond recognition. Hence, senior military officials ordered the American bodies cremated without the prior approval of their family members.

Many open questions are still present that need to be answered:

  • Why was the Chinook’s black box never found?
  • Why was the Chinook not given aerial backup, which is standard military procedure when special forces are deployed?
  • Why were the seven Afghan soldiers who boarded the Chinook at the last minute different from those on the flight manifest?
  • Why were U.S. troops deployed into battle in a Chinook jalopy made in the 1960s and ordered not to fire back at Taliban snipers?

Many things were strange, from these open questions to the strict rules of engagement, but however, families still demanding answers what happened to their beloved ones. Brave warriors honorably served their country and they deserve to rest in peace. Justice demands it.

UPDATE (August, 2020):

Biden did not leak the names of SEAL Team 6

According to the USA-Today and other independent news sources, Joe Biden did not leak the names of SEAL Team 6 members after Osama bin Laden’s death. In fact, he praises CIA and Navy SEALs involved in Operation Neptune Spear.

The claims about alleged Biden’s disclosure of SEAL Team 6 members are false, and it can easily be checked in this video. It is full-speech video of the event where Biden allegedly revealed the names of the later-killed SEALs.

Official investigation concluded that Joe Biden never leaked those names and an investigation found that the subsequent, deadly helicopter attack was not a pre-planned revenge attack targeting those servicemembers.

Snopes,, the Associated Press, PolitiFact, Check Your Fact and Reuters have all rated this claim false. None of those outlets nor USA TODAY has found any evidence Biden ever disclosed the names of the individuals involved.

  2. I hope every person evolved with seal team 6 being killed pays dearly for what they did every one of them! ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! God Bless all of them and there families. 🙏

  3. What a bunch of Bullshit! First anything with Obama and or Bidens name on it is dirty. And then add that Cunt Clinton to the list and dirty is now grotesque. Period! What is fascinating is this FACT. That the people who put out these “updates” actually think that the American public (I will go as far and say people across the world) that these people once refereed to as “journalist’ actually think we are all stupid! They are cowards, walking, talking, typing pathetic cowards. Journalism is dead! They have NO credibility whatsoever especially after the 10 biggest scandals of Trumps Presidency have all been proven to be 100% a lie pushed by the media. EVERY, SINGLE, ONE, OF, THEM! And that isn’t including the fake Russia scandal. You would think that the lie being told to update the truth would have at least come sooner than ten fucking years! AND the overly sensitive basement dweller who wrote the “update” pull your lips off the Presidents dick for a minute. Listing FACT CHECKERS the biggest group of Liars the Left has to offer. A bunch of fucking crybabies who can only dream of being an ounce of any of one of our Military does not make your “update” something to trust. The “everyone gets a participation trophy” a bunch of self absorbed, wimps who are so fucking disrespectful and the least relevant people in society are making a mockery of our Country. For the love of God, you listed Snopes as the 1st source in your list of Lying Leftist fact checkers. If any of your “update” was to be believed, it was crushed as soon as Snopes was a source after that the rest are pointless. A “fact checking” company founded by a drug dealing pimp and two working girls with a laptop. SUPER creditable sources pal…..won’t blast them here but ask Biden when he finishes, he knows. He may not remember but oh he knows!

    God Bless every one of our Military Men & Women, Living & Lost and the friends and families our true American HEROES that the former Vice President Joe Biden had murdered.

  4. Watch Scotty Mar10 on Rumble. It’s addicting with major truth bombs. About 4 – 6 months ago, there was a video with Aaron Vaugn. We know he’s alive & he is looking forward to the day when this all comes to light.
    Stay strong, head on a swivel, & stay frosty, patriots. We’re slmost to the finish line.
    God bless each & everyone of you.

  5. Update? You mean Leftist bullshit propaganda. Biden, Obama, Clinton, etc all are TRAITORS to the people of the World, not just the United States.

  6. This Chinook was not made in 1960’s…yes the Chinook helicopter first came out in the 1962…but this was a later model of the Chinook…

  7. And here we are , the year 2021 and all we got was lip service from both sides !! They’re ALL CULPABLE and know that with all the hearings they schedule they will NOT be held accountable. The hearings are for show and only meant to manipulate the public .

  8. No Place To Hide..Indeed #Extortion17 #SealTeam6 #Wrong Helicopter #StangeAfghganistansBoarded #FlightPlan??#Obama #Biden #Clinton
