KIRSTERS BAISH| Air Force Officer Comes Forward: OBAMA LIED
An esteemed Air Force officer has come forward to tell us all the truth about the crushing attack on Navy SEALs that occurred on August 6th 2011. She wants to make it clear to all U.S. citizens that Obama has LIED. She had made allegations that the Obama Administration hid the grave truth about what happened to the 38 soldiers who perished when a Chinook helicopter came crashing down. This Air Force officer is claiming that if Obama had not altered the rules of engagement of the U.S. military they would have never died. Obama’s reasoning for altering the rules of engagement? To protect the enemy, Muslim terrorists.
Retired Air Force Caption Joni Marquez has broken her silence in order to out former President Obama and tell the American people the truth once and for all. After reading Caption Marquez’s story it is clear that Obama has some serious explaining to do.
Marquez starts off her story recalling that fateful night. She explained that it was not light out yet while she and her crew were working on their AC-130 when they were suddenly beckoned to start a new mission. She describes the mission “as almost like a 9-1-1 type of a situation.”
The crew was told to take flight over Afghanistan’s Tangi Valley in Wardak Province. They were sent to help troops with the Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment while they were being attacked by eight Taliban insurgents with incredible amounts of weaponry and artillery.
Assault helicopters were called in to target enemy troops in the valley. They began firing at the Taliban fighters… but here’s where the story strays from the story we were originally told. Not all of the insurgents were executed.
During her very first interview since that fateful night, Marquez goes on to divulge everything she saw happen. Being the fire control officer on the ship, she was in charge of making sure that the sensors on all of the weapons were in alignment. This would ensure that her crew could hit their targets.
“I had the sensor operators immediately shift to the eight insurgents the helicopters had taken out,” Marquez told Circa. “Two were still alive.”
This mission should have been executed properly, but the soldiers weren’t able to do their jobs correctly because Obama’s generals never gave the gunship permission to fire their weapons. She explained exactly what was going on to the ground force commander, however, he denied her permission to strike.
Marquez goes on:
“We had seen two of them (insurgents) moving, crawling away from the area, as to not really make a whole lot of scene. You have two enemy forces that are still alive,” she said. “Permission to engage.”
She continues her story explaining that the ground commander’s choice to not give permission to the crew to attack the two escaping terrorists would be the driving factor in the deaths of those involved in Extortion 17.
Without permission to attack, Marquez and the crew had no option but to simply keep tracking the two insurgents. Once the two men found their way to a village they gathered more enemy troops to attack the U.S. crew.
During this time, a CH-47 Chinook helicopter was summoned into the battle. The call sign of the chopper? Extortion 17. The United States’ Central Command official investigation confirmed that a Taliban grenade struck the Chinook, ultimately sealing the fate of those aboard. All 38 American soldiers aboard lost their lives. 17 of the troops killed were highly trained and esteemed Navy SEALs.
“If we would’ve been allowed to engage that night, we would’ve taken out those two men immediately,” Marquez explained She knows that if they had been granted permission to take out the two terrorists caught fleeing the scene, all 38 of the soldiers would have survived.
“They continued to essentially gain more and more force behind them because they just kept knocking on doors,” Marquez said. “And the two personnel that initially fled ended up becoming a group of 12 people.”
The scary part, even after begging to bring the Chinook back to base and spare the crew from certain death, commanders did nothing to stop the bloodbath.
“Whenever we reached out to the Joint Operations Center, they would essentially just push back with, ‘Find a, a good infill location. Find a good helicopter landing zone,’” said Marquez, explaining that by the time Extortion 17 was on its way in, the terrorists had already won the fight.
“We had to sit and watch that, and I think that was one of the hardest things that I had to do.”
The Defense Department inspector general previously reported a similar account, confirming Marquez’s story.
“If we would’ve been allowed to engage that night, we would’ve taken out those two men immediately. I mean, it’s just one of those things where you know that it could’ve all been prevented,” Marquez mustered as a tear rolled down her face.
The person to blame for the deaths of these 38 fallen heroes? Barack Obama. His “new and improved” military rules of engagement were the final factor in losing the lives of these highly skilled troops. Obama has some serious explaining to do, not just to the American people, but to the families of those that we lost on that fateful night. Thank god that we finally have a president in office who is willing to put American lives before those of terrorists who are trying to kill us.
