RIP 25 Navy Seals :(

Very sad to hear this.... A big thank you to these guys and their families for the sacrifice they have given!

(CBS/AP) Updated 12:23 p.m. ET
KABUL, Afghanistan -- A helicopter crash in Afghanistan's eastern Wardak province has killed 31 U.S. special operation troops and seven Afghan soldiers, the country's president said on Saturday. It was the highest number of casualties recorded in a single incident in the decade-long war.

More than 20 U.S. special operations forces killed, most of them Navy SEALs, reports CBS News correspondent David Martin in Washington. They were not members of SEAL Team 6, as some reports claim. The crew of five U.S. servicemen was also killed along with seven Afghan commandos, a civilian interpreter and a dog. Bodies are being evacuated from the crash site.

President Obama offered condolences to the dead. "Their deaths are a reminder of the extraordinary sacrifices made by the men and women of our military and their families, including all who have served in Afghanistan," said Obama in a statement. "We will draw inspiration from their lives, and continue the work of securing our country and standing up for the values that they embodied. We also mourn the Afghans who died alongside our troops in pursuit of a more peaceful and hopeful future for their country."

President Hamid Karzai sent his condolences to President Obama, according to a statement issued by his office.

"A NATO helicopter crashed last night in Wardak province," Karzai said in the statement, adding that 31 American special operations troops were killed. "President Karzai expressed his deep condolences because of this incident and expressed his sympathy to Barack Obama."

NATO confirmed the overnight crash and said the alliance was conducting a recovery operation at the site and investigating the cause of the crash, but did not release details or a casualty figure. The coalition said there "was enemy activity in the area."

"We are aware of an incident involving a helicopter in eastern Afghanistan," said U.S. Air Force Capt. Justin Brockhoff, a NATO spokesman. "We are in the process of accessing the facts."

Of the 31 dead Americans, as many as 25 Navy SEALs died, a senior military official told ABC News. 38 people were killed in all.

CBS News correspondent Charles D'Agata said on "The Early Show on Saturday Morning" that, "Nighttime strikes are one of the most successful ways U.S. forces have to battle Taliban hideouts, but they're also one of the riskiest."

If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.
