2 FBI Agents Involved in Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s Arrest “FALL” Out of Helicopter and Die

Remember that scene in Scarface?

Two members of the FBI’s elite counterterrorism unit died Friday while practicing how to quickly drop from a helicopter to a ship using a rope, the FBI announced Monday in a statement.  

The statement gave few details regarding the deaths of Special Agents Christopher Lorek and Stephen Shaw, other than to say the helicopter encountered unspecified difficulties and the agents fell a “significant distance.”

Last month, the team was involved in the arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. And in February, it rescued a 5-year-old boy held hostage for six days in an underground bunker in Alabama.

“Whenever things go really wrong, the FBI calls in the Hostage Rescue Team. It’s the government’s 911,” Coulson said.

Irvin Wells, a former FBI special agent who retired in 1990 after leading the Norfolk field office for three years, stressed that the Hostage Rescue Team is different from the FBI’s regular SWAT teams. He noted that agents assigned to a field office’s SWAT team also must perform other jobs inside the bureau, while agents assigned to the Hostage Rescue Team have no other duties.

  1. As with the Seals, of the Bin-Ladin raid, who were conveniently
    exposed to enemy rocket fire, while in their helicopter…..
    And many others, who “just happen” to have accidents.
    These two F.B.I. agents, must have either known too much,
    asked too many questions, or were about to reveal the truth.
    Rogue governments, and other entities, will always protect
    their agenda, and their secrets……
    even at others expense.

  2. Dear FBI,

    This is your reward when you cooperate with Fed Gov’t Black Ops, then decide you may want to, “talk about it”.

    Go ahead FBI,… keep going along with these hard corre communists,… you will also get “rewarded” when the time is right for you.

    My Fellow Americans:

    The probability that one would “fall out” like that is very unlikely,.. the potential that two would fall out is zero.

    The rope master for the training op would know how to ensure that everyone is tied off before releasing their safety line.

    There is only two reasons for this:

    1) They were about to talk, and let it be know.

    2) They were demanding something in excess of what this criminal gov’t was willing to pay to keep silent.

    Either way, when they FBI, like other agencies of the Fed Gov’t decided to become completely criminal,…. they have to expect they are going to get “rubbed out” for not following mafia orders.

    This is the state of our criminal gov’t.

    JD – US Marines – Two more Americans,.. FBI,.. murdered by our own gov’t. Does anyone have a tally of the total number of Americans killed by this gov’t to date?

    1. Governments don’t decide to become completely criminal. They are criminal when they are instituted. The USFedGov is no exception.

  3. How does that old saying go?
    Or my favorite,
    Three can keep a secret if two are dead.
