Description
On August 6, 2011, thirty Americans, including seventeen commandos from the vaunted SEAL Team Six that ninety days prior had killed Osama Bin Laden, were shot down at point-blank range in an apparent preplanned Taliban ambush against their helicopter. This single deadliest loss of American life in the Afghan War raises more questions than it answers. Was this an inside job by the Taliban? Were the SEALs sacrificed on the altar of political correctness? Or was this gross military incompetence? Best-selling author and former US Navy JAG officer Don Brown breaks down the mountain of evidence from the military's official report to provide a stunning analysis of the shoot-down of Extortion 17, with shocking revelations about the fate of the brave Americans who died. Book jacket.
