Conservative talk radio host Michael Savage believes the public is being misled about the deaths of 17 members of the Navy’s famed SEAL Team Six. The team, which gained worldwide fame for killing Osama bin Laden, was traveling with Afghan soldiers in a Chinook transport helicopter when the craft was downed by insurgents in August 2011.
