“Never before revealed information” to be aired at press conference

Families of the SEAL Team 6 members who were killed when their helicopter crashed in Afghanistan in August 2011 are set to give a press conference tomorrow during which they will hold the Obama administration partially responsible for the deaths of their sons.
With the administration already reeling over today’s Benghazi revelations, a press release on the ‘Tea Party Command Center’ website promises “never before revealed information” about the circumstances behind the incident.
“Accompanying the families of these dead Navy SEAL Team VI special operations servicemen will be retired military experts verifying their accounts of how and why the government is as much responsible for the deaths of their sons as is the Taliban,” states the press release.
30 Americans were killed on August 6, 2011 when insurgents shot down a U.S. military helicopter during fighting in eastern Afghanistan. Most of the victims belonged to the same unit as the Navy SEALS involved in the Bin Laden operation, although US military officials said that none of the individuals involved directly in the Bin Laden mission were killed in the crash.
Issues set to be raised include how the Obama administration’s handling of the death of Osama Bin Laden made retaliatory attacks against SEAL Team 6 more likely, as well as how SEALS were sent into battle “without special operations aviation and proper air support.”
Perhaps even more controversially, the family members are set to reveal how a Muslim cleric attended the funerals of the service members and disparaged them by “damning them as infidels to Allah.” The press release states that a video documenting this will be played to members of the press tomorrow.
Other revelations include “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, “How Afghani forces accompanying the Navy SEAL Team VI servicemen on the helicopter were not properly vetted and how they possibly disclosed classified information to the Taliban about the mission, resulting in the shoot down of the helicopter.”
