On the day after the House Oversight Committee hears testimony on the Benghazi terrorist attack, the families of three fallen Navy SEAL Team VI special forces servicemen, along with the family of a National Guardsman deployed overseas and killed in-the-line-of-duty, will appear at a press conference on Thursday, May 9, 2013, at the National Press Club in the nation's capital, according to several members of the U.S. military's special forces units.
Family members, represented by attorney and author Larry Klayman, are expected to reveal information about how and why their sons, along with 26 others, died in a fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan on Aug. 6, 2011, just months after the celebrated raid on the Pakistan "safe house" of Osama Bin Laden that resulted in the master terrorist's death...
According to Klayman, the agenda for the press conference -- to be held in the National Press Club's Holeman Lounge -- will include:
- How President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, having disclosed on May 4, 2011, that Navy Seal Team VI achieved success in their momentous raid on Bin Laden’s compound in the master terrorist’s death, put a retaliatory target on the backs of the fallen heroes.
- How and why high-level military officials in Afghanistan sent these Navy SEAL Team VI heroes into battle without special operations aviation and proper air support.
- How and why middle level military brass carries out too many ill-prepared missions to boost their standing with top-level military brass and the Commander-in-Chief in order that they can be promoted.
- How the military restricts special operations servicemen and others from engaging in timely return fire when fired upon by the Taliban and other terrorist groups and interests, thus jeopardizing the servicemen’s lives.
- How and why the denial of requested pre-assault fire may have contributed to the shoot down of the Navy SEAL Team VI helicopter and the death of these special operations servicemen.
