Sources: no wrongdoing in SEAL chopper crash

By CNN Pentagon Correspondent Barbara Starr

The military investigation into the cause of an August helicopter crash in Afghanistan that killed 30 troops is finished and families are being briefed on the findings, according to two US military officials.

At the time, the US said it believed the helicopter was shot down by a Taliban insurgent on the ground. The officials, though they have not seen the final report, tell CNN that scenario is still expected to be the finding of the investigation.

The officials also said it was their understanding investigators found no wrongdoing in deciding to send a team of Navy Seals to the site in eastern Afghanistan to reinforce troops already on the ground.

    Hamburgers are usually a feature of fast food restaurants. The hamburgers served in major fast food establishments are usually mass-produced in factories and frozen for delivery to the site. These hamburgers are thin and of uniform thickness, differing from the traditional American hamburger prepared in homes and conventional restaurants, which is thicker and prepared by hand from ground beef. ;

    See you in a bit

    "No wrongdoing determined". That should be very comforting to the families that lost their loved ones. Even more comforting to the brass that go home each night to theirs, and now don't have to worry about accountability for lives lost. It's so easy to sit back thousands of miles away from harm and make decision that get people killed...Kinda like Johnson did during the Vietnam Slaughter where "taking" Hamburger Hill was decided like a chess game on a table inside the White House. Dick Cheney, his Halliburton lackeys, and all the other zeros who love reading these kinds of reports must be dancing a jig right now. That poor dog that lied in sorrow next to the casket cradling his master, one of the dead brave seals, is, for sure, a far better creature than they are@
