The FBI released a statement this week confirming the deaths of two FBI agents who specialized in elite counterterror operations and were involved in the arrest of alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
The FBI announced the two men — Special Agent Christopher Lorek and Special Agent Stephen Shaw — were killed Monday when they were participating in an offshore training exercise in which officers disembark from a hovering helicopter and land on a seaborne vessel by means of a guide rope.
The only other details the FBI provided about the two agents’ deaths are that the helicopter had undisclosed difficulties and that the men fell a “significant distance.”
A law enforcement officer said weather may have played a role in the accident, which occurred about 12 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach.
Do you believe in coincidences? Many of them? A lot of them?
In late 2007, as Obama began his meteoric ascent to be the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, in a span of 1½ months, three black homosexuals, all members of Obama’s Trinity United Church of Christblack liberation theology in Chicago, died. Two of the three (Donald Young and Larry Bland) were shot, execution style.
On July 12, 2012, another gay young man who knew Obama, Alex Okrent, 29, died suddenly and mysteriously while working at the POS’s reelection campaign headquarters in downtown Chicago. Since college, Okrent had worked for the POS one way or another. The autopsy report on Okrent was “inconclusive.”
On August 6, 2011, three months after the elite Navy SEAL Team 6 had assassinated Osama bin Laden in his secret compound in Abbotabad, Pakistan, 22 members of Team 6 were killed when their Chinook helicopter reportedly was shot down by Taliban rebels in Afghanistan.
On March 28, 2013, another member of Navy SEAL Team 6, Special Warfare Operator Chief Brett D. Shadle, 31, was killed and another SEAL injured during a parachute training accident in Marana, Arizona, the military said. Details of the accident were not immediately available.
Now add two more deaths to the “coincidental” list: Christopher Lorek and Stephen Shaw.
Christopher Lorek, 41; Stephen Shaw, 40
Scott Daugherty reports for PilotOnline.com that the FBI announced in a statement that two members of the FBI’s elite counterterrorism Hostage Rescue Team, Special Agents Christopher Loreak and Stephen Shaw, died on May 17, 2013, while practicing how to quickly drop from a helicopter to a ship using a rope.
The incident happened about 12 nautical miles off the coast of Virginia Beach. A law enforcement official blamed bad weather for the incident and said the agents fell into the water and probably died for the impact, instead of from drowning.
Danny Coulson, a former deputy assistant director of the FBI who started the Hostage Rescue Team (HRT) 30 years ago and served as its first commander, said the HRT members “have the same skill sets as SEAL Team 6 and Delta Force.” They are trained to rappel from helicopters, scuba dive and use explosives to break down doors and walls. When needed, the team can deploy within four hours to anywhere in the U.S. “Whenever things go really wrong, the FBI calls in the Hostage Rescue Team. It’s the government’s 911,” Coulson said.
Last month, the Hostage Rescue Team was involved in the arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.
Glenn McBride, a spokesman for the state medical examiner’s office, said it could be months before his staff can release a final cause and manner of death for the two elite FBI agents.
There is another mysterious Boston Marathon bombing-related death.
On April 23, 2013, Sunil Tripathi, initially identified as a Boston bombing suspect, was found dead in the Providence River. Tripathi, a former Brown University students, had been missing since mid-March.
The man shot dead by an FBI agent in Orlando, Florida early today (May 22, 2013) was “about to sign a statement” admitting to a role, along with Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, in an unsolved triple murder in Massachusetts in 2011, two people with direct knowledge of the case told ABC News.
This is obama spitting in our eye – again. He will have the IRS harrass the tea party or anyone who dares to speak out against him.. He is truly a TYRANT.
Lerner’s superior, Sarah Hall Ingram, was the most senior political appointee in charge of exempt organizations reviews during the years when the IRS was targeting right-wing groups. This year the Obama administration has elevated her to a position of authority over the tax implementation of the Affordable Care Act, the president’s signature health care overhaul.
At his 100th-day town hall meeting in St. Louis Wednesday, President Barack Obama took direct aim at the anti-tax “tea party” demonstrations that have cropped up over the last month and took a veiled shot at the Fox News Channel, the cable news network closely associated with the protests.
“Those of you who are watching certain news channels on which I’m not very popular, and you see folks waving tea bags around, Obama said, “let me just remind them that I am happy to have a serious conversation about how we are going to cut our health care costs down over the long term, how we are going to stabilize Social Security.”
So as early as April, 2009, when he said the above, he sent his message to all that the tea party was to be targeted. In essense, they are just “folks waving tea bags around” – not citizens of the country he is supposed to represent.
And then no later than on May 5 2013 at Ohio State University he said, “They’ll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices.” Of course, these are the very same “voices” he was talking about in 2009. Not even to mention the fact that he slyly cast suspicioun (along with his compliant media) that somehow the bombings in Boston were connected to “Tax Day”. And we all know who he thinks that would be.
And when you take a look at what has been revealed in the last week, you don’t think that is tyranny? But this man wants us just to “ignore it”? Never!
I believe the AP story is either released or maybe even manufactured in order to cover for the press in their derilection of duty in covering all other scandals, including Benghazi and IRS. This makes it look like the media was also a target of the administration, but I don’t believe it. Hell, they probably turned it all over to them if they wanted it.
The AP (among most others) but the AP in particular, has been in the back pocket of the obama regime from the beginning. I think the white house gives AP a story, they print it, and then all others pick it up because it has been given the seal of approval and supposed credibility by AP
Plus there is no way they care about the IRS targeting the tea party, et al, and they have known about it all along. So they have covered that up, also. They have all attacked the tea party and participated in the witch hunt..
And we know the entire corrupt media has been covering for the obama corruption and has been participating in the cover-up of Benghazi for months now.
So cry me a river over the AP!

NOTE: I know for a fact the Reuters was all in on the “video” story. They had numerous pictures of the Benghazi scene on the internet right after the slaughter and the burning, and on each and every one of the photos, the caption mentioned that this was an uprising caused by “an offensive video insulting Islam.” I saw this for myself within a day or two of the attack. Now, this could have come from none other than obama and his administration, because they Made .It. Up.
