Before BENGHAZI there was EXTORTION 17....
August 06, 2011, 2:20 a.m.—Operation Lefty Grove is underway...a highly dangerous mission to take out another high-level Taliban operative...three months after the takeout of Osama Bin Laden. Twenty-five US Special Ops Forces (including 17 members of SEAL Team 6) and a five-man flight crew board Extortion 17, a CH-47 Chinook helicopter. Seven Afghan also board but they have been switched out at the last minute from the original seven listed on the manifest.
Extortion 17’s specially trained warriors drop into the Hot Landing Zone to help their fellow warriors. But there’s a problem...the standard chopper escorts have all been directed elsewhere. Betrayed is a heart rending account of an operation gone horribly wrong and is an engaging account of faith, patriotism, honor, duty, and loss.
Betrayed is not just the biography of an American military family, it is a crucial, true-life narrative that every American must read and understand about their government and the danger America’s military strategy currently poses to all families. Betrayed is a book Billy Vaughn wishes he didn’t have to write. But his son is gone and there are still unanswered questions. He needs to know if finding the truth may prevent another father from standing in his shoes.
Billy & Karen Vaughn are seeking answers and finding them. Join us to see what these amazing parents have discovered in their quest for the truth.
