This clip is going to get a lot of play, and everyone can decide for themselves whether or not Jake Tapper meant any disrespect for our military, personally I do not believe he did. What I would like y’all to note is the eyes of Marcus Lutrell. Those are a warrior’s eyes, that intensity, and light in them reveal what Lutrell is about. Honor, duty, sacrifice, and patriotism. We talk a lot about heroes, and warriors, but we seldom get to see that light in their eyes. It reminds us how absolutely remarkable our special forces are.
God bless the Red Raiders! This Gator salutes you
Texas Tech unveiled its good-looking “Lone Survivor” football uniforms on Monday, which the team will wear against Kansas State on Nov. 9 to honor slain Navy SEALS, Marcus Luttrell and his Lone Survivor Foundation.
Readers of TheBlaze are likely familiar with Luttrell’s story and the former Navy SEAL’s nonprofit he created after the release of his 2007 book “Lone Survivor.” The book tells Luttrell’s incredible story of survival and provides a sneak peak into the horrors of war during “Operation Redwing” in Afghanistan, where 19 members of Navy SEAL Team 10 were killed.
The helmet features the number “19″ in honor of the slain Navy SEALS and wings similar to those found in the Lone Survivor Foundation’s official logo. Further, the words “Never Quit” appear on the sleeves and helmet.
After Tech’s game against Kansas State, the jerseys will reportedly be auctioned off and the proceeds will go to the Lone Survivor Foundation, Yahoo! Sports reports.
On July 24, radio talk-host Michael Savage interviewed Charles Strange, the father of Michael Strange, one of the 22 SEAL Team Six members who died in that Chinook helicopter crash in August of 2011. This was a momentous, blockbuster interview that seems to have gone unnoticed by most of the internet.
After listening to this interview, I’ve concluded Benghazi isn’t the biggest Regime scandal. EXTORTION 17 is.
Among the claims made by Mr. Strange:
– His son and his fellow SEALS knew “something was going on with the team”, and “somebody’s leaking things out”… (besides Former CIA Director Leon Panetta and Vice President Joe Biden?) They knew “something was going on” and were putting their affairs in order.
– According to Mr. Strange, Michael along with 8 other SEALS made it out of the Chinook and were fighting on the ground.
– Mr. Strange stated that he was “100% sure” that the Regime had executed his son and the others on purpose.
– Mr. Strange was told “Michael knew what only 4 people in the world knew.”
– The chopper’s black box was never recovered because it was supposedly “washed away in a flash flood.”
– At Dover Airforce Base, after Obama told Mr Strange his son “changed the way Americans live” he embraced the weeping father, who proceeded to wipe his nose on the president’s jacket (a story Mr. Strange loves to tell, according to his wife.)
– Imam at ceremony at Bagram Air Force base condemned the men as “white devils” and “infidels”.
– All the bodies were cremated.
– According to Mr. Strange, some of the families are not speaking out because they are getting “threatened by the command”: “The checks could stop – or the kid who doesn’t have a father now, might not get a scholarship for college.”
– Mr. Strange believes his phones are tapped.
– Recently Michael Strange was awarded the Silver Star for valor. His parents were not invited to the White House for the Ceremony.
After Vice President Joe Biden revealed that SEAL Team 6 carried out the operation that killed Osama bin Laden in May 2011, Strange said the members of his son’s team gave startling indications to their families they were about to meet their demise.
Charles Strange, the father of slain SEAL Michael Strange, told Savage Wednesday night that in June 2011, on at least three separate occasions his son grabbed him by the bicep and announced that he had prepared his will.
The bewildered father finally was able to find out what it all meant.
Michael Strange, his father recalled, said, “Something’s going on with the team. Somebody’s leaking things out. Something’s going on.”
Savage, reacting with emotion, asked: “Your son knew he was being sent to his death?”
Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) is leading the Congressional investigation into the helicopter crash.
Did the Obama administration put a target on the backs of members of Navy SEAL Team 6? This is the question that parents of slain SEALs are now asking – and rightly so. Forget Benghazi, the IRS, Eric H. Holder Jr. and the National Security Agency spying on U.S. citizens. Important as these scandals are, what happened to SEAL Team 6 could very well dwarf them. Our government betrayed America’s finest warriors.

Today three families of Navy SEAL Team VI special forces servicemen, along with one family of an Army National Guardsman, appeared at a press conference to disclose never before revealed information about how and why their sons along with 26 others died in a fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011. This was just months after the successful raid on the Bin Laden compound in Pakistan.
At the press conference today the families released video on how military brass, while prohibiting any mention of a Judeo-Christian God, invited a Muslim cleric to the funeral for the fallen Navy SEAL Team VI heroes. This cleric disparaged in Arabic the memory of these servicemen by damning them as infidels to Allah. A video of the Muslim cleric’s “prayer” was shown this morning with a certified translation.
This will break your heart.
From the funeral services at Bagram Air Force Base
Here is the radical cleric’s curse on our fallen SEALs.
Amen. I shelter in Allah from the devil who has been cast with stones.
In the name of Allah the merciful forgiver.
The companions of “THE FIRE”
(The sinners and infidels who are fodder for the hell fire)
ARE NOT EQUAL WITH the companions of heaven.
The companions of heaven (Muslims) are the WINNERS.
Had he sent this Koran to the mountain, you would have seen the mountain prostrated in fear of Allah.
(Mocking the GOD of Moses)
Such examples are what we present to the people, so that they would think.
(repent and convert to Islam)
Blessings are to your God (Allah) the God of glory and what they describe.
And peace be upon the messengers (prophets) and thanks be to Allah the lord of both universes (mankind and Jinn).
For the record – Political correctness killed these heroes.
Are there any courageous Christians left in this country?
Are there any Christians willing to stand up for their faith?
