U.S. Reveals Identities Of Its Service Members Killed In Manbij

From Right to left: Scott A. Wirtz, Jonathan R. Farmer and Shannon M. Kent

On January 18, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) revealed the identities of three out of four Americans killed in the bombing attack in the northern Syrian city of Manbij, which occurred three days ago.

“The deceased are: Army Chief Warrant Officer 2 Jonathan R. Farmer, 37, of Boynton Beach, Florida. Farmer was assigned to 3rd Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne), Fort Campbell, Kentucky … Navy Chief Cryptologic Technician (Interpretive) Shannon M. Kent, 35, of upstate New York. Kent was assigned to Cryptologic Warfare Activity 66, based at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland … DoD civilian Scott A. Wirtz of St. Louis, Missouri. Wirtz was assigned to the Defense Intelligence Agency as an operations support specialist,” the DoD’s official statement reads.

The DoD didn’t explain why the name of the fourth killed American, who is supposedly a civilian contractor, was not revealed. However, it noted that the incident is still under investigation.

A day earlier, a team of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) arrived in Manbij in order to participate in the investigation, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack. However, the U.S. is apparently not taking the terrorist group’s claims as the only version of the attack. This means that a third party may have been involved in the bombing, which was the bloodiest attack on US-led coalition troops since the beginning of the war on ISIS.

yes and what ever they say they find is verified as fact, how exactly? I am sure the americans will find out the russians did it and I am sure the turkish agents been arrested the other day have absolutely nothing to do with what is happening over there.




The Mossad agent Lindsey Graham was in Turkey today meeting with Erdogan. It’s so obvious the kikes and their useful idiot Turds are planning something together:


As I’ve predicted before the Jews will ditch the Kurds and go back to using Turds as proxies against the rest of the people in the region. For a while I thought Turkey or at least Erdogan would have learned his lesson and changed course after the failed CIA coup but it seems like you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.


Erdogan isn’t even smiling,…. lol.

Turkish Greywolves

We saw Iran/Syria/Russia helping YPG in afrin against Turkish army, bark harder, Turkey made a political win in the world. :)


The only reason Turkey invaded Afrin was because Russia allowed it to with the agreement of the Syrian government but being a typical Turd you’re too delusional and brainwashed to know that fact (Assuming you really are who you pretend to be).

Turkish Greywolves

Hahahaha, because of Russia, right if Russia wanted and take bullets for you, they could stay. Russia tried everything to stop it from advancing into afrin by sending NDF/Hezbollah/Iranian units into afrin, but as we know your army is weak, and now in Tel-Rifat you work with PKK/YPG/Israeli/american/mossad terrorists. :)


All I’ll say is that I’m glad my enemy is so dumb and delusional. I almost feel like I’m speaking to a mentally handicapped person, which is why I sometimes doubt you’re even a real person.

Turkish Greywolves

Truth hurts, nice helping YPG/PKK terrorists in afrin with iranians Russians and SAA, helping mossad CIA terrorists, good job :) today we bombed tel-rifat again in front of your russian protection for ocalan cult. :)

Zionism = EVIL

More Gay baloney :)

Zionism = EVIL

Gay Wolf you are posting nonsense as usual :)

Turkish Greywolves

I saw everything in afrin, and i know who cooperated with YPG terrorists

Tommy Jensen

It reminds about the meetings between McCain and ISIS leader Abu al-Baghdadi.
American women are spitting turds out from their vaginas in millions.


lol but but… Lindsey Graham and Brett McGurk still love us! Israel loves us too! they would never betray us for big bad ottoman jannisaries! – said every r3tarded ypg fanboy ever

Zionism = EVIL

4 less pigs to create wars and problems for humanity. These worthless Americunt cowards have killed millions for their Zionist masters. Karma is a bitch and sooner or later it all evens up.


Special forces, operations support, intelligence ….. sounds like these guys were running Syria’s proxy terrorism show on behalf of Uncle Sam …. I wonder if they took part in the anti-Syrian chemical weapons false flags? … anyway, in Syria illegally and they must have known it, so it’s a ‘good riddance’ from me.

Zionism = EVIL

Exactly, it was NSA, DIA, CIA terror recruitment team and with the Cryptologists means that they were handing out encryption communication equipment to the headchoppers, A cryptologic linguist is primarily responsible for identifying foreign communications using signals equipment.These pigs were up to no good.

Prince Teutonic

The Russians did it!


To those Yankees dead while illegally occupying Syrian soil and supporting terrorists, to them
I will only say: ROT IN WAR!


2 rattle snakes.The Kurds better make peace with Demascus very quickly,they are going to be slaughtered if they dont.


So we have a special forces officer, a Cryptologist and a military intelligence civilian (likely former military).
1. Special forces (officer)
2. Cryptologist (Navy Intelligence)
3. Military Intelligence (Defence Intelligence Agency / DIA)

Important hit! Very important hit!
My take on this is that this was NOT a USA military hit on its own people!
This was another intel agency hit on the USA that sends both a message and makes it hard for them to leave! Also since when does the FBI get specially flown to investigate this!
Normally NCIS or some other US military agency would investigate!

Someone doesnt want the USA to leave! Someone is sending a message to military intel!

Im telling u, there is an intelligence war happening in this world between black hats and white hats of all nations! (even allies) (even USA upon USA)

Willing Conscience (The Truths

Who would Isis prefer to target, 4 US service personnel, that they could kill anytime anywhere, or the Saudi minister for Gulf affairs, mmmm, which would be a bigger scalp to Isis, I doubt the Saudi minister for Gulf affairs would ever be considered and easy target for anyone, at any time or anywhere, mmm, interesting.

Angelo Cinarelli

Im sorry for theyr family, but I do not care about them. They were in another country e nobody invited them.

Angelo Cinarelli

Erdogan shoul kick out all American from Turkey. He do not remember the failed CIA coup ?? PUTIN SAVED HIS ASS. I do not know why but if Edogan is still president of Turkey is thanks to Putin.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
