I don't understand why they keep stuffing so many SEALs in one chinook that is a super easy target for the enemy. So many special forces units have died because of chinooks that it's ridiculous.

So were Douangdara and Bart the ones that participated in the raid on OBL?? I am confused. I had originally heard that none of the OBL team were involved. RIP, to all of the fallen including Bart.

America lost some of it's finest soldiers…..may these hero's rest in peace. I pray that God comforts their family in this time of sorrow.

Bart….a dog who served and died for this country as well…..there is a special place across rainbow bridge for this K9.

No, the dog in the OBL raid was named Cairo. I too do not understand the thinking that puts so many members of an elite team in the same helicopter, especially one as troubled as the Chinook. Even CEO's of major corporations are smart enough to travel separately from other top executive officers - just in case. Whoever OK'd this arrangement ought to be fired. Sad and unnecessary loss of life.......if they had been split into smaller groups for transit, many would have survived.

the reason they were all in the CHinook is that it was a rescue mission. They had been in a **** of a battle and they were being extracted ASAP
