Parents of Slain Navy SEAL: Obama Admin Put a Target on Our Son's Back

Navy SEAL Team 6 became a household name when members of the elite unit took out Usama bin Laden. But the same unit suffered tragedy just three months later when a helicopter carrying 30 American troops, most of them members of SEAL Team 6, was blasted out of the sky by Taliban forces in Afghanistan.

Now, the parents of three of the men killed are publicly speaking out and blaming the Obama administration for serious missteps that led to their sons’ deaths. They are pushing for a Congressional investigation.

Targeting the Tea Party? IRS Apologizes for 'Flagging' Conservative Groups

Karen and Billy Vaughn, the parents of deceased Aaron Vaughn, joined America Live Friday. They’ve uncovered startling facts that they believe show incompetence on the part of the government, including that the forces were flying in outdated aviation equipment from the 1960s and that they flew unescorted, which is not standard protocol.

More than that, they believe that Vice President Biden’s announcement that it was a SEAL team that took down Bin Laden, put a target on the backs of the SEALs.

The Vaughns heard from their son shortly after Biden’s revelation, who said that there was chatter that their lives were in danger. Karen said, “As soon as Joe Biden announced that it was a SEAL Team who took out Bin Laden, within 24 hours, my son called me and I rarely ever heard him sound afraid in his adult life […] And he said, ‘Mom, you need to wipe your social media clean.’” She continued, “The community was very unnerved by that unveiling, so yes, a target got put on their back.”

Billy Vaughn blasted Biden, saying, “The media has let [Joe Biden] get away with saying ‘Uncle Joe’s gaffes.’ This is not Uncle Joe and he’s not some senile old grandfather. He is the second in command of the most powerful country in the world and he needs to take responsibility for the comments he makes and quit being given a pass.”
