Member of SEAL Team 6 killed, another SEAL injured in parachute accident

CGA NOTE: The alleged raid on Osama Bin Laden, purportedly carried out by SEAL Team 6 was a hoax. Osama Bin Laden died in 2001. Since the time of the alleged "raid" and "capture" of Bin Laden, numerous SEAL Team 6 members have died. Are they being killed off? Dead men tell no tales.
