Joni Marquez is an American soldier who knows firsthand what a traitor former President Barack Obama is.
In a recent interview, USAF officer Joni Marquez detailed the events she recounts surrounding the night that 38 fellow soldiers were shot down by Taliban insurgents and who is responsible for that tragedy.
According to Marquez, Barack Obama is to blame.
For some inexplicable reason two of the aforementioned insurgents were left alive following a firefight and for that reason events had the capability to lead to a grenade launcher being shot at a military helicopter carrying no less than 38 passengers. Marquez explains that she had the chance to take out the two insurgents whose not dying lead to the deaths of 38 others but was denied that opportunity when her commanding officer refused to give the ok to terminate.
A highly decorated Air Force officer is breaking her silence about the disturbing incident that occurred back in 2011 that marked the deadliest attack on Navy SEALS in U.S. history.
In her first interview since the incident, Joni Marquez recounts what she witnessed that night as she was the fire control officer aboard the ship. Her job that night was to ensure the sensors on the weapons were aligned, so that her crew could hone in on the terrorists’ targets:
“I had the sensor operators immediately shift to the eight insurgents the helicopters had taken out,” Marquez told Circa. “Two were still alive.”
“We had seen two of them (insurgents) moving, crawling away from the area, as to not really make a whole lot of scene. You have two enemy forces that are still alive,” she said. “Permission to engage.”
Marquez went on to say that the ground commander’s refusal to not allow her crew to take out the two terrorists with their weapons would then seal the fate of those involved in Extortion 17.
Now with no way to take out the threat, Marquez and her team were left with little options other than tracking the two enemy insurgents with the surveillance equipment. She watched helplessly as they made their way through an open field, then to a village where they began to rally more terrorists to join the fight.
Meanwhile, a CH-47 Chinook helicopter, with the call sign Extortion 17, was called into the hours-long firefight.
U.S. Central Command’s official investigation concluded that a rocket-launched grenade from a Taliban fighter hit the Chinook and sent the helicopter into a downward spin. The crash killed all 38, including thirty Americans and eight Afghans. Seventeen of the U.S. servicemen were Navy SEALs. Months before, SEALs were made famous for the killing of Osama bin Laden.
“If we would’ve been allowed to engage that night, we would’ve taken out those two men immediately,” Marquez said. She believes with her whole heart that had her team been given permission to take out the terrorists, 38 warriors would still be alive today.
