I wanted to take the liberty of sharing the following letter that I forwarded to our NM U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman, on or about August 15, 2011, respectfully requesting the conduct of a Congressional investigation into what I consider to be the mysterious circumstances surrounding the downing of a Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan, on or about August 6, 2011, which 'killed 22 SEAL Team 6 members', along with the “security breach” that I believe was perpetrated shortly after the helicopter was downed. Also included is his response to my request, which I received, on or about August 24, 2011. What's wrong with this picture?-You Decide:
“August 15, 2011
The Honorable Jeff Bingaman
United States Senate
703 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510-3102
Dear Senator Bingaman:
I hereby request that a Congressional investigation be conducted into the mysterious circumstances surrounding the recent downing of a Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan, to include the “breach of security” that I believe was perpetrated shortly after it was downed. What follows are my reason(s) for requesting said investigation:
On August 6, 2011, a Chinook helicopter is supposedly shot down in Tangi, Wardak Province, Afghanistan. Within hours, before family notifications could possibly have been completed, which requires an “in person” visit to the family, global press accounts positively confirm that 22 of the 30 Americans killed were not just SEALS, but members of SEAL Team 6. Up until now DEVGRU operations have been highly classified, but on this date it seemed that someone within this administration made it a point of immediately revealing the unit identities of the SPECOPS forces among the dead.
Note: What follows is an August 6, 2011 New York Times article and/or blog post that reported in part that: “insurgents shot down a Chinook transport helicopter, killing 30 Americans, including some Navy Seal commandos from the unit that killed Osama bin Laden, as well as 8 Afghans, as reported by both American and Afghan officials”, which substantiates my statement above:
Copter Downed by Taliban Fire; Elite U.S. Unit Among Dead!-Posted on The New York Times-By RAY RIVERA, ALISSA J. RUBIN and THOM SHANKER-On August 6, 2011:
In the past, DEVGRU men and other SPECOPS men have been killed in action, but their missions were so secret and so crucial to OPSEC that their deaths were covered-up by the government and attributed to such things as “training accidents” and the like. These men understand when being assigned to intense units such as DEVGRU that OPSEC is paramount and they will never be publicly acknowledged for their heroism, and, if they are killed or captured in action, the government normally never confirms the operation in order to protect OPSEC and to prevent the enemy from gaining some propaganda. Compare that reality with what transpired shortly after the Chinook helicopter was shot down in this operation.
- Why did someone within the administration immediately reveal the unit identity of the SPECOPS forces involved in the first place, despite the fact that DEVGRU was highly classified?
- Why was the personnel composition of the Chinook released immediately after the helicopter went down – before even family notifications could be made?
On or about August 9, 2011, it was reported that an unnamed Afghan official had said that the Taliban, working with some Pakistanis, had lured the U.S. Forces into a trap to shoot down the Chinook helicopter, but an ISAF spokesman stated that there was no initial information as of yet to validate that this was some kind of ambush or trap and that the helicopter incident was still under investigation for the cause of the crash. What follows are pertinent excerpts published by that news source:
“The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force-Afghanistan (ISAF) says it has no information yet to validate whether the U.S. Chinook helicopter that crashed in eastern Afghanistan, killing 30 U.S. troops, flew into a Taliban ambush.
It was reported by AFP news agency that an unnamed Afghan official had said the Taliban, working with some Pakistanis, lured the U.S. forces into a trap to shoot down the helicopter. CNSNews.com asked the ISAF if that report was accurate.
U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jimmie Cummings Jr., a spokesman for ISAF, responded by e-mail, saying, “I have seen a number of media stories stating this allegation. We have no initial information as of yet to validate that this was some kind of ambush or trap, but with that said, the helicopter incident is still under investigation for the cause of the crash.”
Lt. Col. Cummings Jr. also did not confirm definitively whether the helicopter was brought down by “hostile fire,” although ISAF Joint Command reported on Aug. 8 that “the helicopter was reportedly fired on by an insurgent rocket-propelled grenade.”
The Taliban, which often exaggerates its effectiveness, has claimed responsibility for shooting down the helicopter. However, Lt. Col. Cummings Jr. suggested that it is still unclear whether the helicopter crashed as a result of “hostile fire.”
“The helicopter incident is still under investigation and we should be able to determine what type of munitions was used, if it is found to have been downed by hostile fire,” said the ISAF spokesman when CNSNews.com asked about the kind of weapon used to shoot down the helicopter. “The initial security force on the ground observed several insurgents, armed with rocket propelled grenade launchers, and AK-47 assault rifles, moving through the area.”
NATO Not Confirming That U.S. Helicopter in Afghanistan Flew Into Taliban Trap!-Posted on CNSNews.com-By Edwin Mora-On August 9, 2011:
On or about August 10, 2011, there was an article and/or blog post published by The Telegraph that reported in part that: “at approximately midnight on August 8th the Taliban insurgents who shot down a US military helicopter in Afghanistan, leaving 30 American troops dead, have been hunted down and killed by allied forces, according to the US commander in charge.” What follows are pertinent excerpts published by that news source:
“General John Allen, the new commander of US forces in Afghanistan, said at the Pentagon that “at approximately midnight on 8th August, coalition forces killed the Taliban insurgents responsible for this attack.”
A separate statement to the media from Afghanistan said the strike killed Taliban leader Mullah Mohibullah and the insurgent who fired the rocket-propelled grenade that downed the Chinook helicopter.
“The strike killed Taliban leader Mullah Mohibullah and the insurgent who fired the shot associated with the Aug. 6 downing of the CH-47 helicopter, which resulted in the deaths of 38 Afghan and coalition service members,” the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force said in a statement.
The statement did not say explicitly that the Taliban fighters had shot the helicopter down, although it was the clearest indication yet that was the likely cause.
Military officials believe that the shooting down of the helicopter, killing 37 people, was most likely a “lucky shot” rather than marking a new insurgent ability to destroy aircraft.”

I will be looking forward to hearing from you regarding my request for a Congressional investigation into this disturbing issue.
Thank you again for all you continue to do for our Veterans, our state and our country.

Automated Electronic Response Received From Senator Bingaman’s Office Regarding My Email Above:
“Thank You For Your Message”
“August 24, 2011
Dear Mr. Martinez:
Thank you for contacting me regarding the recent downing of the CH-47 Chinook helicopter in eastern Afghanistan, killing 30 U.S. special operations troops. I appreciate your taking the time to write and share your concerns about this tragic day in our nation's history.
On August 11, 2011, the Department of Defense announced the names of the 30 servicemembers who died August, 6. You can read the release, which shares their names and unit assignments, on the Defense Department's website at:
Although many of these troops were part of the Naval Special Warfare unit, it is my understanding that none of these servicemembers participated in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden in May 2011.
Unfortunately, anonymous sources that reveal secret information about the tactics, training, and equipment of covert forces not only put at risk our ability to mount similar missions in the future, but it also endangers the lives of our troops and their families. I understand your concerns for the welfare and safety of the families of the servicemembers who participated in this raid, and believe there must be a consistent and effective effort to protect the identities of those individuals. Please be assured that I will keep your comments in mind as I continue to monitor the situation.
Again, thank you for writing. Please continue to inform me of issues that are important to you and your community.
