Retired U.S. Army Major Gen. Paul Vallely says the United States government is covering up the true facts of the ambush of an American military chopper in Afghanistan, in 2011.

"This was pretty much a cover-up, a very badly put together tactical operation for a rescue of some Marines who we found out really weren't in that much danger," Vallely told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.




"This whole thing ... may have well been an established ambush by the Taliban in response to SEAL Team 6 taking out [Osama] bin Laden three months earlier."

Vallely, founder of Stand Up America, has teamed up with Billy Vaughn, the father of Aaron Vaughn, a Navy SEAL killed in the chopper crash, to write a new book, "Betrayed: Exposing the High Cost of the War on Terror."

It details how on Aug. 6, 2011, Taliban forces ambushed the U.S. Army chopper — which carried 30 Americans, 25 of whom were Special Operations — in the Tangi River Valley of Afghanistan.

Vaughn believes the mission that led to their son's death was not only botched, but that the Navy SEALs had been targeted as they were sent to capture a high-level Taliban leader.

And he blames Vice President Joe Biden for revealing that it had been the SEALs who took out bin Laden, a fact that basically made them sitting ducks for retaliation.

"It's been said by people a lot more important and higher-ranking in our U.S. government than me that the vice president committed a breach of national security," Vaughn told Steve Malzberg.

"Never before had the SEALs or any special operators, for that matter, been identified after they had completed a raid. ... Our son actually called ... and said, 'Mom, you’ve got to get any information about us off the social media, you've got to shut your social media down; there's chatter; our lives are threatened ... ," Vaughn said.

"This is directly because of Vice President Joe Biden, when an agreement had been made not to give the details."

The book is available for pre-order at SpecialOpsBetrayed.com.
