Black Hawk Down? Black *something* down...

In 2006, Joint Special Operation Command [JSOC] commander General Stanley McCrystal was operating under the understanding that that U.S. units could not enter Pakistan except under extreme circumstances and even then, Pakistan would deny giving them permission. Wikileaks later revealed JSOC was conducting an ongoing drone program, along with snatch & grab and assassination operations, based in Karachi and conducted both in and outside of Pakistan.

Osama Bin Laden's now-famous sprawling compound was located on the outskirts of Abbottabad, 50km north of the Pakistani capital Islamabad. It is a town with a high military presence due to proximity to Kakul, the Pakistan Military Academy - the equivalent of Westpoint or Sandhurst and many retired officers live there.

But at 1AM Monday morning, local time when the area was shrouded in darkness and bereft of moonlight, 25 operators of DevGru [the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, commonly referred to by it's former name - SEAL Team Six], their dog and the pilots of the U.S. Army 160th SOAR [Special Operations Aviation Regiment] under the direction of the CIA, entered Pakistani airspace in two Modified MH-60s and two MH 47s to undertake Operation: Neptune's Spear.

The helicopters inserted the operators who performed their duty and hovered over the compound for 40 minutes. During this time, it appears that no one from the local security forces or military facilities seemed seemed to take issue with this. Kakul's front gate was not 700m from the compound of evil. In fact most of the people in the area only realised something was happening when one of the aircraft was blown up to safeguard secrets after making a hard landing due to "engine failure". Closer residents to the compound however tweeted complaints about the noise of the helicopters and described it as a rare occurrence.

If we assume for the moment that the U.S. Government is telling the truth when they say that Pakistan had no prior knowledge of the raid then it stands to reason that there was some pretty impressive technology employed to circumvent Pakistani air defence systems. The Pakastani's are no slouches when it comes to military hardware and especially air defence as they maintain cold relations with their neighbour India with whom they have had several conflicts with since the end of WWII. Many organisations and individuals are speculating about some new kind of “Stealth Copter” but the only credible answer to this conundrum is that technology of extra-terrestrial origin was used to mask the radar signature, disperse the heat emissions, muffle the sound and decrease the visibility of the aircraft to the point where it’s just short of a Romulan Cloaking Device from Star Trek.

Evidence of this comes in the form of the fact that the presence of Colonel “Whopper” Creedon of UNETIDA was noted travelling from Area 51 to the 160th SOAR airbase at Fort Campbell, Kentucky some weeks ago as he personally oversaw a convoy of several armoured articulated trucks with Osprey and Apache escorts flying overhead. Col. Creedon in particular is believed by some to be responsible for acquiring advanced alien technology from various sources and integrating it into U.S. weapons systems such as rail guns, airborne lasers, the V22 Osprey and the recently revealed successful test of a HEL over a body of water. Questions must now be asked as to the dangers of such technology obviously being applied haphazardly to vehicles, weapons and aircraft in such a way that caused one of the helicopters involved to malfunction and put both the lives of the Special Forces operators and their mission at considerable risk.

“So we lost a helo!” Creedon said when asked to comment. “Shit happens! It’s not the first time a Blackhawk has gone down is it? SOAR modify their birds all the time to be as stealthed as possible. The tech’s classified because they don’t want the Reds or the Yellahs getting their grubby paws on their fine work; not because it was dug out of the Antarctic and carbon dated to over 7000 years ago – er, actually strike that last comment from the record will you?”

One must now wonder if the only technology we are getting from extra-terrestrials is weapons? What does it say about the aliens, or more importantly: What does it say about us?
