Time for Another Hard Look at Our “Allies”?

Associated Press is reporting that the helicopter that crashed, apparently under fire, in Afghanistan, has killed 20 members of Seal Team 6, the same unit that nailed Bin Laden.  It is not clear yet whether it may in fact be some of the same individuals from Seal Team 6 who were on the Bin Laden mission–that information we’re likely never to find out.  But either way, it seems doubtful this is a coincidence.  I hope a congressional committee will not accept the State Department and Pentagon line on what happened, and inquires whether Bin Laden sympathizers in Pakistan’s ISI, or inside the Afghan government, played some role in targeting and bringing down this crew.
