Last Thursday three families of Navy SEAL Team VI special forces servicemen, along with one family of an Army National Guardsman, appeared at a press conference to disclose never before revealed information about how and why their sons, along with 26 others, died in a fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011. This was just months after the successful raid on the Bin Laden compound in Pakistan.

At the press conference the families released video on how military brass, while prohibiting any mention of a Judeo-Christian God, invited a Muslim cleric to the funeral for the fallen Navy SEAL Team VI heroes. This cleric disparaged in Arabic the memory of these servicemen by damning them as infidels to Allah. A video of the Muslim cleric’s “prayer” was shown at last week’s press conference with a certified translation.
On Sunday, the Vaughns went on FOX and Friends. Billy Vaughn wants the Commander-in Chief, “To defend the policy that in this United States government allows the body of a slain warrior to be desecrated and allows the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to be mocked.”
