Two FBI Agents Involved in Arrest of Boston Bombing Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s “FALL” Out of Helicopter and Die

general population doesn't know that it doesn't know

If you ever get recruited by the FBI, CIA or elite military .. don’t go. If you do go, don’t learn any secrets. If you accidentally learn a secret, run away. If you don’t run away, at least avoid helicopters.

These are the lessons we learn from the people who are mysteriously dying after participating in special, secret, suspicious-looking missions like killing Osama Bin Laden (most of those involved have mysteriously died in weird and suspious ways) and now, the arrest of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

 

Two FBI Agents Involved in Arrest of Boston Bombing Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s “FALL” Out of Helicopter and Die

Two members of the FBI’s elite counterterrorism unit died Friday while practicing how to quickly drop from a helicopter to a ship using a rope, the FBI announced Monday in a statement.The statement gave few details regarding the deaths of Special Agents Christopher Lorek and Stephen Shaw, other than to say the helicopter encountered unspecified difficulties and the agents fell a “significant distance.”Last month, the team was involved in the arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. And in February, it rescued a 5-year-old boy held hostage for six days in an underground bunker in Alabama.“Whenever things go really wrong, the FBI calls in the Hostage Rescue Team. It’s the government’s 911,” Coulson said.

Irvin Wells, a former FBI special agent who retired in 1990 after leading the Norfolk field office for three years, stressed that the Hostage Rescue Team is different from the FBI’s regular SWAT teams.

He noted that agents assigned to a field office’s SWAT team also must perform other jobs inside the bureau, while agents assigned to the Hostage Rescue Team have no other duties.

Man Linked to Boston Bombing Suspect Confesses to Murder, Gets Shot by FBI

Dead men tell no tales

The man supposedly linked to deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev allegedly confessed to being involved in the murder of three people just before he was shot to death today by the FBI, sources told NBC News.

general population doesn't know that it doesn't know“Sources say that what began as a drug ripoff ended in a triple homicide when Tsarnaev and friend Ibragim Todashev realized their victims would later be able to identify them,” reports NBC.

According to law enforcement, after confessing to the three unsolved 2011 murders, Todashev used a knife to attack an FBI agent in an apartment complex in Orlando, Florida, prompting the agent to shoot and kill him. He reportedly “became violent as he was about to sign a written statement based on his confession.”

Coincidentally, Todashev had told his friend, prior to being interrogated, he had a feeling he would be shot by the FBI.

“He felt inside he was going to get shot,” Todashev’s friend, Khusn Taramiv, said. “I told him, ‘Everything is going to be fine, don’t worry about it.’ He said, ‘I have a really bad feeling.’”

Last Thursday, it was reported Tamerlan’s brother Dzhokhar had also penned a confession to the Boston Marathon bombing on the interior of the boat he hid in.

Obama to Cut Medical Benefits for Active / Retired Military – Not Union Workers

Irs takes your money, congress uses it to arm your enemies then they use it to fight the enemies they armed

It is not unconstitutional to cut benefits for military men and women, however, I do believe that it is unconstitutional to use the military as it has been used over the past several decades, leading us to perpetual debt and increasing taxation. It’s at the very least immoral the way the military has been used recently and how badly they are begin treated currently.

I am simply pointing out the hypocrisy involved in the decision making process. Why do we cut individual benefits for people but still maintain unconstitutional and unnecessary wars that are fought immorally for no good reason except lining rich people’s pockets?

If we had smaller military but payed them well and gave them good benefits to protect OUR borders rather than posting them in every country across the globe where some wealthy American might have something to gain we would be protecting our land and our citizens without killing and provoking others overseas to hate us and want to retaliate.

At this point the United States arms people that hate us and then waits for them to attack us and then uses the attack that we enabled as an excuse to occupy a country that we don’t need to be in for the security of the United States, but only for natural resources and economic gains (for some people but at a loss for taxpayers).

Shouldn’t our government be accountable to give people what they have already promised to give them? Many people have worked many years in the armed forces to provide for their families and have a secure retirement. I think for the people who are already serving, they should get the benefits they were expecting.

Obama to Cut Medical Benefits for Active / Retired Military – Not Union Workers

In an effort to cut defense spending, the Obama Administration plans to cut health benefits for active duty and retired military personnel and their families while not touching the benefits enjoyed by unionized civilian defense workers.

The move, congressional aides suggested, is to force those individuals into Obamacare, Bill Gertz reported at the Washington Beacon.

Gertz added:

The proposed increases in health care payments by service members, which must be approved by Congress, are part of the Pentagon’s $487 billion cut in spending. It seeks to save $1.8 billion from the Tricare medical system in the fiscal 2013 budget, and $12.9 billion by 2017.

Not everybody is happy with the plan, however.

Military personnel would see their annual Tricare premiums increase anywhere from 30 – 78 percent in the first year, followed by sharply increased premiums “ranging from 94 percent to 345 percent—more than 3 times current levels.”

“According to congressional assessments, a retired Army colonel with a family currently paying $460 a year for health care will pay $2,048,” Gertz wrote.

Active duty military personnel would also see an increased cost for pharmaceuticals, and the incentive to use less expensive generic drugs would be gone.

Health benefits has long been a prime reason many stay in the military – but some in the Pentagon fear the new rules will hamper recruitment and retention.

“Would you stay with a car insurance company that raised your premiums by 345 percent in five years? Probably not,” one aide said.

John Hayward of Human Events adds:

Veterans will also be hit with a new annual fee for a program called Tricare for Life, on top of the monthly premiums they already pay, while some benefits will become “means-tested” in the manner of a social program – treating them like welfare instead of benefits for military service. Naturally, this is all timed to begin next year and “avoid upsetting military voters in a presidential election year,” according to critics.

There will be congressional hearings on the new military health care policies next month. Opposition is building in Congress, and among veterans’ organizations, including the VFW, which has “called on all military personnel and the veterans’ community to block the health care increases.”

Others are concerned about the double standard being set between uniformed military personnel – who are not unionized – and civilian defense workers who belong to public sector unions.

Gertz wrote:

A second congressional aide said the administration’s approach to the cuts shows a double standard that hurts the military.

“We all recognize that we are in a time of austerity,” this aide said. “But defense has made up to this point 50 percent of deficit reduction cuts that we agreed to, but is only 20 percent of the budget.”

The administration is asking troops to get by without the equipment and force levels needed for global missions. “And now they are going to them again and asking them to pay more for their health care when you’ve held the civilian workforce at DoD and across the federal government virtually harmless in all of these cuts. And it just doesn’t seem fair,” the second aide said.

At least one Congressman is standing with the military on this issue.

“We shouldn’t ask our military to pay our bills when we aren’t willing to impose a similar hardship on the rest of the population,” said Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon (R-CA), who chairs the House Armed Services Committee.

Irs takes your money, congress uses it to arm your enemies then they use it to fight the enemies they armed“We can’t keep asking those who have given so much to give that much more,” he added.

McKeon will be joined by some 5 million members of 32 military service and veterans groups, according to retired Navy Capt. Kathryn M. Beasley of the Military Officers Association of America, who called the plan “a breach of faith.”

The Beacon also noted the curious timing of the plan, which is set to begin next year – after the 2012 elections. Critics say this is designed so as not to upset military voters.

It’s one more reason Barack Hussein Obama does not deserve to be re-elected in November.

Pentagon Seeks Another $79 Billion for Afghan War | Already Funded With $526 Billion Including War Fund

Propaganda is now legal in the United states

Well, it’s like I always say, “There’s no real reason to NOT ask for an EXTRA $79 billion for a fake BS war that kills far more civilians than supposed “terrorists”, when you could just ask for another $79 billion for a fake BS war that kills far more civilians that terrorists.”

Actually, I don’t always say that. I just made that up.

Clever. I know…

But, really… if you are already getting $526 billion dollars in taxpayer funds to continue and unnecessary war for the benefit of the rich to the detriment of the citizens, then HOW MUCH MORE do you actually NEED?

I wonder which departments funds the propaganda machine and the government owned media?

Pentagon Seeks Another $79 Billion for Afghan War | Already Funded With $526 Billion

by Jason Ditz

Pentagon officials have submitted a new request for another $79.4 billion for “overseas contingency operations,” essentially to pay for the 2014 fighting of the Afghan War. The request is above and beyond the $526 billion the Pentagon is already seeking for 2014, which was supposed to include the war’s costs.

Propaganda is now legal in the United statesRequests for supplemental war funds are nothing new for the Pentagon, but the latest request comes in the context of a growing budget crisis in Afghanistan, with the 2013 “contingency funds” already burned through as costs continue to soar.

The Pentagon’s estimates for their costs have been much too low, as the “success” that is always supposed to be just around the corner in Afghanistan never pans out, and officials conceded in recent comments that the costs of the war may continue to rise “substantially” going forward.

Officials are bragging that the 2014 request is somewhat less than the 2013 version, but the reality is that with surge troops being withdrawn, the savings were supposed to be significant. Instead, the war continues as an all-consuming sinkhole for tax money, with no end in sight and the Pentagon’s best estimates inevitably falling far short.
