Obama defies judge over Seal Team plane crash documents

Once again, the administration defies a judge. The judge apparently isn’t very upset as to date. Why so many Seals would be in one plane never made sense. So here we go:

The Obama administration is violating a judge’s order to turn over documents in the Aug. 6, 2011, shootdown of a U.S. helicopter — call sign Extortion 17 — that killed members of SEAL Team 6 in Afghanistan, a watchdog group is charging.

On the fourth anniversary of the worst one-day loss of military life in the war on terror, families of the dead say they are aghast that the government will not honor basic requests under the Freedom of Information Act.

“It has now been four years since Extortion 17 was shot down,” said Doug Hamburger, whose Army air crew son, Patrick, was one of the 30 Americans killed. “I find it quite disturbing that the government is not willing to give us the answers we deserve. I find it very irritating that we will not question the Afghans about their knowledge of what took place that night.”

U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon in February signed an order requiring the Obama administration to release documents on a continual basis through the spring and summer. The Justice Department said at least 50 documents in the Pentagon have been identified as relevant, but only one has been turned over. And Justice unilaterally set a new deadline for the release and then ignored it, Mr. Klayman said. Throughout, he said, Justice lawyers have refused to take his phone calls.

“They don’t even produce under their own self-imposed deadline,” Mr. Klayman told The Washington Times. “We’re pleading with the judge to do something, and he’s just sitting on it.”

    I never knew there was even a question about these horrid deaths; I figured we’re at war and, in war, people get shot down. Reading the details, or what seem to be valid questions, is really troubling.
    It almost sounds like someone thinks they were killed on purpose and we were in on it…..WHY?
    But what else could be shutting our own people up? Was it something very clandestine? Something that involved security or classified things parents can’t know because if parents of the dead know, they could tell?
    Terribly sad for the families…to say nothing of all those stellar lives lost.

      One wonders were Hillary’s dirty fingers involved in some way.

        sure, but why? What could have happened other than a bunch of great Americans hideously dead because someone shot the helicopter at just the right place? You see what I mean?
        What’s Hillary got invested in people not knowing the details?
        Is this another case of her keeping files shut, like her emails are shut? If anybody thinks we’re getting all the emails, they’re NUTS. The State Dept overseeing itself is like a murderer overseeing his own trial, right?

    Yet another example showing the death of the separation of powers which kept America, America. Exactly what Peter said. The executive appears to be now unchecked. The rest is theater.

    The simple answer as to why Obama continues to defy the courts and ignore the constitution is …because he can.

    I guess we shouldn’t be surprised by this but damn it is infuriating. This is a story which disappeared into the night amidst some of the other scandals and the family deserves answers. There is something fishy about this story and I don’t doubt Obama is hiding something.

    Reblogged this on Brittius and commented:
    Answer: Because raid on Bin Laden compound was probably a hoax or a cover. Bin Laden is most likely, alive and paid a US Government pension as he was/is a product of the CIA and must have some dirty laundry that the US federal government would not like aired out. No other reason for Extortion-17 to continue to be covered up, and leads to one more thought: Maybe an American operative, took out, SEAL Team-6.
