30 soldiers die when helicopter shot down

Could anything more perfectly epitomize how utterly pointless this war has become, then the death of these elite soldiers, some of whom may have been involved in the assassination of Osama bin Laden?  I'm shocked that so many soldiers of that caliber would have traveled together in such a vulnerable vehicle (Chinook helicopter).  We are wasting a ridiculous amount of money in this country, and now we are losing our very best soldiers. It's time to get out.

". . . the team was thought to include 22 SEALs, three Air Force air controllers, seven Afghan Army troops, a dog and his handler, and a civilian interpreter, plus the helicopter crew. The sources thought this was the largest single loss of life ever for SEAL Team Six, known as the Naval Special Warfare Development Group."
