Default Why Was the Navy Seal Painting The Mortar ???

Any one know exactly how this works ??? Why would Tyrone Woods have been painting the Mortor if there were no assets in the sky ????

Because there was at least one AC-130U in theater. One that General Ham was going to use, along with the rapid response team he had assembled and was about to deploy before he was told to stand down. He said "The hell I am!" and about one minute later was relieved by his 2nd in command.

That's why.

Yep, you don't laz something unless you expect someone can see it. Now it could have been for the UAV to see it. In Afghanistan I would use my M4 rifle's IR laser to ID targets for the UAV, then the UAV would hit the target with its "dazzler" laser to confirm.

Yes !! but my question is if there was not an asset in the sky or anywhere near the compound like the regime was saying then why was he painting the mortor.I know he wasn't painting it just for grins because I believe that would give away his position.

This act is why I have no faith that the 'military' would stand up to a catastrophic takeover and suspension of civil rights event by a corrupt regime.

For many decades other 'traitors' have been promoted within the command structure fo the military and on the day of such an event you have to hope and pray that more patriots than traitors are in positions of power.

The 2nd in command should not have obeyed the order to remove General Ham from command.

Such events are what corrupt regimes use as insurance against coup d'état attempts. That is how Africa is ruled.

He would likely have been getting daily info on what is in the air, land and sea at his disposal. When we were other there a few decades ago we received that kind of info daily... even where the SSBN's were.

Likely that the ground operator knew that his painting was in sync with something up above. From transcripts he was heard to say at some point, "Where the he!! is the Spectre?"

But like I said in the other thread....WHY would he specifically ask "Where the F*** is the Spectre?" if there wasn't one. Like you and others have said, he lazed the target expecting a Specter to hit it. He was specific in his request....he had to have been aware that there was one close by. But on a fall back....the UAV wasn't used either so who in the F*** left those guys out to dry? Petraeus has already denied it was anyone in the CIA so it was either DoD or the Kenyan administration.

well it should be no surprise that the coward in chief had a lot to do with it. He had no problems releasing the info on the UBL raid, I wonder if the raid to kill Bin Laden had gone sideways, would this snake have covered that up as well???

All the lasers are infrared, they can't be seen with the naked eye, it ain't like hollyweird.

I haven't read the transcripts, didn't know he was calling for spectre.

A minute by minute of the UBL raid was released, (way too much info in fact) proving what BHO is all about.

Lets hope that BHO is removed Nov. 6th.

That is what I was getting at, he can paint himself a friggin hero, but runs like a cockroach when something like this happens. His administrations f'up got Agent Brian Terry killed, and it was covered up, now his incompetence had resulted in more people being killed and it is covered up. If the MSM (Pravada) had exposed the first situation, my guess is the second would not have happened as they would have provided the requested security!!!
