Two FBI Agents “FALL” Out of Helicopter and Die?
Were these FBI agents “pushed out” instead of stumbling around and falling? In other words, were they set-up and murdered? The ship was a privately contracted entity (it happened “on a leased Military Sealift Command ship”): no Navy personnel were involved: must be treated like a murder until proven otherwise.
Again, we raise the logical probability: Were these men assassinated for what they knew? Were they considering going public on that knowledge? Did they meet the same end as Pat Tillman, murder at the hands of the Mossad?
Repost: Two FBI Agents “FALL” Out of Helicopter and Die. Two members of the FBI’s elite counterterrorism unit died last Friday while practicing how to quickly drop from a helicopter to a ship using a rope, the FBI announced Monday in a statement.The statement gave few details regarding the deaths of Special Agents Christopher Lorek and Stephen Shaw, other than to say the helicopter encountered unspecified difficulties and the agents fell a “significant distance.” Last month, the team was involved in the arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. And in February, it rescued a 5-year-old boy held hostage for six days in an underground bunker in Alabama.“Whenever things go really wrong, the FBI calls in the Hostage Rescue Team. It’s the government’s 911,” Coulson said.
Irvin Wells, a former FBI special agent who retired in 1990 after leading the Norfolk field office for three years, stressed that the Hostage Rescue Team is different from the FBI’s regular SWAT teams.
He noted that agents assigned to a field office’s SWAT team also must perform other jobs inside the bureau, while agents assigned to the Hostage Rescue Team have no other duties.

FBI: Agents died in fall from helicopter off Virginia Coast
As well as the obituary
Editor’s note: not believing in coincidences, these deaths are hereby held as murders until proven otherwise. Let’s begin the process of investigating this. Use this post as a format for now, and possibly a forum will be started regarding this shortly. It would appear that these men were eliminated, just like the Navy Seals in Afghanistan, who were conveniently obliterated.
From the Intelhub:
“It’s the most rigorous training regiment in law enforcement, probably in the world,” said Danny Coulson, a former deputy assistant director of the FBI who started the team 30 years ago and served as its first commander. “They have to be able to do any mission, at any time.”
Among other things, members of the Hostage Rescue Team 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.
“It sounds risky, and it absolutely is,” Coulson said. “They have the same skill sets as SEAL Team 6 and Delta Force.”
From local affiliates, RE: Monica Asif:
“When the chopper came through, it whizzed around really fast. The urgency was different, and it drew our attention,” Asif said.
She noticed a pilot and uniformed men get out carrying a patient on a gurney and rushing into the hospital. A few minutes later the helicopter left and came back with another patient who was receiving CPR during the descent onto the hospital roof, Asif said.
The two patients were agents with the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team being rushed from a training accident off the coast of Virginia Beach. The accident happened on a leased Military Sealift Command ship, according to a Navy spokesperson, although no Navy personnel participated in the training.
Asif said it looked like the chopper arrived unannounced.
From a nodisinfo.com poster:
They were suppose to fast rope down to the ship. Being former Special Forces I can attest to the fact that there are two ways to use a rope from a helicopter. One is by repelling and the other is by fast roping. The helicopter is about 75 feet above the ground. Repelling is from the side of the helicopter and fast roping is from a trap down in the middle of the helicopter. Since there is all sorts of safety involved murder is a possibility. Just like when I jumped from C-130′s, C-141′s, Huey’s, Russian Bi-plaine, and a Russian Hippo helicopter, you go through a lot of safety throughout the ordeal which is very unnerving. This safety from the repel master or jump master scares you more than just jumping. the chute has a 99% chance of opening just by the way it is constructed. You don’t just fall out of a helicopter unless you are hit by an RPG. In that case, you better just go ahead and jump because you will be dead any way. This is why Tammy Duckworth the new congresswoman never lost her legs flying combat helicopters in Iraq. We have no women, yet, in combat arms, and if the helicopter that she was flying was hit by an RPG or SAM, she would have been toast. You don’t survive. I would have to say that while these FBI agents were repelling or fast roping, somebody probably cut the lines. The rope is pretty strong, it isn’t that easy to fall when you are hanging on to it.
