The SEAL Team 6 families held an extraordinary press conference today, laying blame directly at the feet of the Obama administration for the service members’ deaths in 2011.
Larry Klayman, the attorney representing the Seal Team 6 families, stated that the dead SEALs were “victims of our political establishment who would rather protect radical Islamists than our own people.”
By way of background, the identity of Osama bin Laden’s killers, Seal Team 6, was classified but Obama and Biden publicized who they were, effectively painting a target on their backs.
They then went into battle with an inadequate helicopter, an inadequate pilot, and pathetic rules of engagement that generally required the soldiers to be fired on before firing back.
To add insult to injury, at their funeral, the Department of Defense had a Muslim cleric offer a prayer that apparently damned the heroic soldiers to hell as infidels, desecrating their memory.
What follows is a full, thirty minute video of the press conference. Included in it is an interview with General Jerry Boykin as well as an interview with Representative Gohmert.
If you don’t have time to watch the full video (not professionally edited, but worth the time to watch it), please take the time to review the short news clip below it.
Here’s the news clip of the press conference:
According to the Washington Times, a Pentagon spokesman responded to the press conference with this statement:
“First, I want to say that we share in the grief of all of the families who lost their loved ones. The loss of 38 U.S. and Afghan military personnel was a tragic loss during a difficult campaign. The 30 U.S. casualties represent the diversity and talent of America and its military; these warriors served in three services (Army, Navy, and Air Force), in special operations and conventional units, and represented Reserve and active-duty units from 20 states.”
