How many Americans have heard of Extortion 17? Extortion 17 was the call sign for the Chinook helicopter shot down in Afghanistan on the night of August 6, 2011. Killed in that crash were 25 special ops forces, including 15 members of Seal Team 6, 5 national Guard troops and 8 Afghans.
Today, the families of the military killed in that crash held a press conference to lay out the coverup by Obama and the military that has gone on since that crash.

To this day, no one has come forward identifying that commander. America needs to demand an answer to that question.
Remember, prior to this crash, Barack Obama and Joe Biden had identified Seal Team 6 as the forces that killed Osama Bin Laden. One has to ask, “were they a trade off for Bin Laden?”In October 2011, US Central Command CENTCOM announced that an investigation carried out following the shoot down concluded “that all operational decisions, linked to the incident, were deemed tactically sound” and the helicopter crashed after a RPG round impacted the aft rotor assembly.While the Obama administration was busy spinning the coverup, other reports were surfacing that the…………………………………
