Afghan President Hamid Karzai announced the number of people killed in the crash and the presence of special operations troops before any other public figure. He also offered his condolences to the American and Afghan troops killed in the crash.
I don't think the Taliban just got lucky. Payback is a bitch. Not only were the majority SEALs from team 6, but it was the biggest kill against American troops in Afghanistan extant. This was a huge propaganda win for the Taliban, that is for sure. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. Where is Obama now? He was the big cheese in chief when they capped that miserable bastard. He's probably off playing golf or eating a heart attack burger somewhere. There's no political gain in this for him.
