Father of Murdered Team 6 SEAL: “My Son Did Not Become a Navy SEAL to Win the Hearts and Minds of Islamic Jihadists.” By Daniel Greenfield. Frontpage Mag, May 9, 2013.

Billy Vaughn (27:32 to 28:54 in video):

Let me tell you something. If my son had gone in on an MH-47 that night with guns blazing and they’d been shot out of the sky, it’d be a whole lot easier to live with. If the air weapons teams overhead were offering suppressive fire because a three and a half hour operation was already underway in the valley, it’d be a whole lot easier to live with.

But you know why we were not. Because according to a high ranking three-star admiral, Admiral Harward, who made a statement to the grieving families at the debriefing that day, we want to win the hearts and minds of the enemy. Aaron Vaughn did not become a Navy SEAL Team 6 Gold Squad to win the hearts and minds of the Islamic Jihadists. He became a Navy SEAL to fight for this republic and defeat the enemy.

And I’ll tell you right now, any American flag officer who does not want to defeat the enemy, needs to find another job. Any man who sits in that White House who does not want to defeat the enemy of this republic needs to step down. And any vice president who goes around speaking gaffes time after time needs to be held accountable. Just like the man who played the video of Benghazi. Where’s that guy today?
