In this episode of the Dudes n Beer podcast host Christopher Jordan welcomes Gold Star mother, lecturer and analyst for America Out Loud, Susan Price to the program to discuss the horrific facts behind the now infamous ambush on US Marines in the Ganjgal Valley of Afghanistan On September 8, 2009.
Young Marine intelligence officer Aaron Kenefick was deployed to Afghanistan would seem to be a usual assignment. But Aaron, believed otherwise. Shortly before deployment he left his mother, Army veteran Susan Price with a laptop asking her to take care of it and that “If anything should happen to me while deployed…you will Know.” Fast forward to September 8th, Ganjgal Valley of Afghanistan, Aaron and his unit are deployed to acquire a specified target amid “light scattered fire from possibly ten insurgents” according to military intelligence. Upon arrival the unit is ambushed and held down with a 2.5 hour fire fight before the first mass casualties were reported, including Gunnery Seargent Aaron Kenefick by a single gunshot wound to the spine. All while air support was denied from Tactical Command! Shortly after the skirmish begins across the globe, Susan’s house is broken into and she is followed by shady characters.
Could this ambush have been the work of Deep State forces trying to eliminate Aaron before he leaked information that he had access to during his years as an intelligence officer? Why was the story hidden from public view? Why was the air support for the incursion denied once the fire became overwhelming? Why was a unit sent on a mission that no one in the unit was in on planning of? How does a mother go about avenging the death of her son and obtaining justice from the Government that killed him? She becomes an analyst and investigative journalist…that’s how!
All this and more in this revealing episode of the Dudes n Beer podcast as we discuss the disturbing facts behind the Ganjgal valley ambush discovered by analyst and reporter Susan Price of America Out Loud as she began investigating the death of her son, Aaron Kinefick.
