Country congress plans to take a closer look at that tragic military helicopter -- -- killed thirty Americans.
Including 22 members of the navy's elite seal team six forced nearly two years ago after it was shot down by Afghan insurgents.
Despite assurances from the White House both congressman and Jason -- -- and families of some of the seals that were killed say they still don't have the answers from the administration.
On the specifics of that deadly attack joining us now Charlie strange.
Michael was killed and his attorney Larry claimant gentlemen welcome nice to have morning thank you.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- I know this is a very emotional story for you.
Of course it hits home this helicopter attack happened on that -- And on Osama bin Laden's pop compound pocket -- -- -- poppies on.
The -- -- provided families with information that it doesn't believe the seals were targeted following the death of Osama bin Laden.
Why do you believe otherwise.
I have information.
What they gave me I have it right here in front of me.
What happened was they gave us a book with no -- -- this you can't read it there's no toner but they also gave us a disk.
But this that they wanted to is back for.
The next day.
But to -- what -- -- -- the specifically what is it that you.
Good questions that you are raising about the concerns you have about that night.
Well they -- On his paperwork here that may tenth 2011.
That there -- -- that -- -- valley would a hundred Taliban.
To shoot down the coalition force.
And it's for any doubt they know they knew they were common.
To kill my side while the -- -- Let's just -- -- -- the Pentagon is saying that the documents it has evidence it has says that there was no evidence to support that.
The helicopter was targeted by those insurgents Larry let me ask you what impact keeping the congressional spotlight.
We'll have on this situation now and the families who are seeking the answers.
Blooming all have a huge impact this is not another phony scandal this is the death.
Of 22 special -- forces sixteen.
Of which were our valued navy seal team six members.
Yet these answers have never been forthcoming.
From the president nor from the administration.
Well do you have evidence I think things specific evidence that says that those soldiers were not.
Properly equipped with the right safety material and also the a helicopter that was not properly equipped.
Yes we do in fact -- that report the Charlie's referring to where they state that.
This helicopter was -- to -- this was in 1960 minutes helicopter not very maneuverable.
Which put these service -- these special ops in harm's way.
And number two.
We know that the black box of this crash and he's of the unanswered questions washed away in a flood well there hasn't been a flood in that area of the world since Noah's Ark.
So where is that black box and -- son Michael.
Who was a Christian.
There was cremated yet his body was intact what was the rush.
To cremate bodies in fact they claim that all of the bodies that resulted we're completely destroyed and therefore not able to be very.
What was the rush to do all of that it looks like there's a cover up -- and I believe that at the end of the day.
Given the fact that this appears to be retaliation.
From the death of Osama bin Laden given the fact that.
People knew that there were Taliban in the area given the fact that seven afghanis were substituted out of the flight.
Right before took off yet we don't know who was inserted from Afghan.
That this may have been.
-- set up by the Afghan government the Afghan forcible.
Area I you know I -- get he'll have to today we have is that the Pentagon continues to say that it has no evidence to support some of these plans although I.
I do know that -- -- -- another congressional leaders are saying that they do want to get to the bottom of this they will hopefully hold a hearing shortly and we look forward to hearing what comes out of that it's not an investigation.
-- -- that's the reason for the hearing thankfully we have.
We have the proof.
We have thirteen hundred pages did that describes the set up the ambush.
We have Charlie I I -- up my heart goes out to you and on your loss and will be following the story thank you very much.
