The idea that evolution works everywhere else but is impossible in a few special cases, which therefore require the use of (unobserved) supernatural forces, is the extraordinary claim.

This is where you go seriously off. Behe makes it clear that it's not a few special cases. More on that later.

The loss of useless parts is observed, as Joe pointed out. That's all scaffolding is.

It is not observed. It is speculated. If it were observed, we wouldn't be having these discussions. Scaffolding is just another evolutionary "meme" without testable, verifiable evidence.
