Leadership: The lack of respect our commander in chief has for our fallen heroes was shown by the sending of a form letter signed by auto-pen to the families of 17 Navy SEALs killed in a crash in Afghanistan.
'I don't take these folks too seriously," President Obama recently told the Virginian-Pilot, referring to a group of former SEALs who formed the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Inc., to run ads attacking the leaking of details of the Osama bin Laden raid and other national secrets to further his reelection chances.
Apparently the president doesn't take the sacrifice of Navy SEALs who've fallen in battle and the grief of their surviving families too seriously, judging from the form letter sent out to the families of 17 who were among 30 U.S. service members killed when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter transporting them crashed in Wardak province, Afghanistan, on Aug. 6, 2011.
As Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit reports, Karen and Billy Vaughn, parents of Aaron Carson Vaughn, spoke at the Defending the Defenders forum sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots outside the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
Karen brought a copy of the form letter they were sent after their son's death in that crash. It shocked her to discover that all the families had received the same letter with only the names different.
It shocks us too. This was the single greatest loss of life in the decade-long Afghan war, one involving 17 Navy SEALs who were on a mission to aid a U.S. Army Ranger unit that was under heavy fire. Such a sacrifice by this group of genuine American heroes warranted more than a form letter to the families.

Twenty-five went down in a Chinook that was attempting to rescue Michael Murphy, Marcus Luttrell, and their fireteam.
Sending a form letter. Unbelievable.
No, I take that back. Its all too believable. Absolutely sickening. These men made the Ultimate Sacrifice and the narcissist in chief can’t even be bothered to send a personalized note.
I can't wait for this POS to make his exit in November!
They should have have been honored nightly on the news as individuals with there accomplishments and families highlighted as well. Instead we get gay, gay, gay, war on women and what a stunning genius OB-Dolt is.
The Old Media is going down with their hero and we must endeavor to keep them down and watch as the a New Media arises.
White House Scheduling Secretary: Mr President, should we schedule a meeting to honor the SEALS for their successful mission?
BH0: I don’t have time to visit the zoo and toss some fish to performing seals, I need to be at the golf course by noon.
This disgusting excuse for a leader doesn’t take seriously the most capable and serious people who walk the earth!
The worm is an absolute idiot!
These aliens in the WH are way beyond despicable.
Nov. can’t get here soon enough.
I heard somewhere that odongo is the only POTUS since D-Day that has not attended the D-Day ceremonies honoring our heroes.
Obama and the rapper be on the down-low.
Because he be a homo.
SEALs don’t go on the down-low.
They will stomp some ass though.
This shouldn’t be a surprise. 0 skipped the Salute to Heroes Ball on election night that hasn’t been missed by a single CiC since its inception. Hell even Jimmuh Catuh managed to make it. I think that set the tone for the term right there.
Yeah, love him or hate him, he would have.
Thanks for the ping.
