Proud members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. We strongly believe in personal freedom, responsibility, and gun rights. We also believe in the 90/10 theory. That means that 10% of the people have 90% of the talent. Unfortunately, we are not in the 10% category. However, the rest of us are still better than 90% of the politicians.

Just a question

Did we really send SEALs out on a mission to kill bin Laden in a helicopter that stalled? If so, what does that say about the equipment the rest of our servicemen and women are working with?


  1. Possibly a density-altitude problem. One news report quoted someone as saying the air temperature at the compound was much higher than expected.

    Or maybe the the fixed-wing pilots are right: "Air planes just naturally want to fly. Helicopters just naturally want to crash."

  2. Apparently it was something of a new breed of "stealth" chopper, and the military is sitting on further information.

    Seriously: .

    Also, if it got low enough, and the compound walls were high enough, I could see a definite air density problem...
