U.S. Military Airstrike Kills Insurgents That Shot Down U.S. Helicopter
Recently, we posted the story of 25 special forces members and 5 other miliary members being shot down and killed while flying in a CH-47 Chinook helicopter. Most notable among the casualties is reported to be several Seal Team 6 members, the U.S. Navy's special warfare team that carried out the mission that ended Osama Bin Laden's life.
It was only a matter of time before we got to share this news with you: retaliation. Anybody can get a lucky shot off, but it takes more than that to win the war. That only just REALLY pissed us off.

The Stars and Stripes reported about an hour ago an article outlining the demise of this lucky dirt bag.
Coalition forces have killed the Taliban insurgents who recently shot down the helicopter that killed all 30 U.S. troops on board...Taliban leader Mullah Mohibullah and the insurgent who fired the shot that downed the helicopter were killed in an airstrike on Tuesday in the Chak district of Wardak...
This wasn't an easy task of course, but one I'm sure the operatives were anxious and well-motivated to carry out. The insurgents didn't just kill an aircraft full of soldiers, they killed brothers, fathers, sons, husbands, best friends and the most dangerous person of all to kill: a comrad.
Mohibullah and his insurgents were the original targets of the U.S. military when the helicopter was shot down. After following tips, intelligence leads and more exhausting work, Special Operations forces located Mohibullah and brought down the rain of death by calling in an airstrike.
The security force located and followed the insurgents to a wooded area in Chak district...the force called for the airstrike which resulted in the deaths of the Mullah Mohibullah, the shooter, and several of their Taliban associates.
