OBL Raid: Parents Of SEAL Team Six Member Say Unit Endangered By Obama Administration Statements
I salute them for coming forward to tell their story, their son and all of SEAL Team Six deserved better from this administration.
Identifying the Special Operations Force behind the Usama bin Laden raid amounted to placing a target on the back of the team members as well as their families, according to the parents of Aaron Vaughn, a member of SEAL Team Six who was killed in Afghanistan in 2011.I remember when Biden named them, my jaw literally dropped. It wasn't a "gaffe", it was stupidity.
The Vaughns spoke with Fox News as part of an ongoing report on the war in Afghanistan for an upcoming episode of the "Fox Files." While the Vaughns do not believe their son was part of the bin Laden mission, they said the entire team shared the victory, and eventually the shock, of being named.
“Aaron called me and said, 'Mom, you need to wipe your social media clean of any reference to me or any of my buddies. Just disconnect completely,'” Karen Vaughn said her son warned after Vice President Biden publicly identified the SEALs on May 3, 2011 -- two days after the raid. “He [Aaron] actually said to me, 'Mom, there's chatter, and all of our lives could be in danger, including yours' ... then I realized all of those families, you know, you're talking about a community of around three hundred families who were all of a sudden made targets by this administration.”[...]
Fox News asked the White House National Security spokesman and the vice president's office for a response, but none was immediately available.
The Pakistani doctor who aided the raid has felt this administrations stupidity also. ISI jailed and tortured him.
The Obama campaign continues to push that Rep Ryan has no foreign policy experience. Biden does.
