May 9, Thursday 10:00 AM, National Press Club, Washington, DC: Watch these Navy SEAL Team VI families and other family members as they reveal the Obama Admin...
Video - Obama Administration Allowed Radical Cleric to Curse US Navy SEAL Heroes at Funeral Services. HT: GatewayPundit.
At the press conference today 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 this morning with a certified translation.
If this doesn't sicken you about this administration I don't know what will!! My heart breaks for these brave families, but am thankful they have come forward. The speech by Billy Vaughn, the father of fallen SEAL Aaron Vaughn, at 24:19-44:20 minutes, is very moving and inspiring and makes you realize our government has become an enemy of our military men and women and an enemy of the US!
Don't tell me Obama isn't a Muslim, or at the very least a dhimmi,Muslim appeaser and panderer. WTH is a Muslim Cleric doing saying the prayer for a Christian nation over the caskets of our fallen heroes??!!
What I don't understand is why these families didn't protest this and stop him from praying over their sons?? Why weren't they given a non-denominational military chaplain?? What the HELL is going on here!!?? I'm disgusted. We are at war with these Islamic terrorists who hate America and everything we stand for and who killed these brave Americans.
Why should we allow one of their own to worship over them and praise Allah while condemning them to hell??!! This is outrageous! My head hurts and my blood is boiling over!!
This must not stand!! I refuse to tolerate this politcal correctness and insult to our military heroes to continue to go unnoticed and unpunished! Their lives were taken forgranted, and they were exposed by the Obama administration as being the ones who were on the mission to take out Osama Bin Laden and therefore targetted!
Why did they give them one helicopter and one not normally used for special ops forces, but is normally used for troop transfers?!! Why did they remove the Afghani forces who were suppose to go on the mission instead of the SEALs??
According to The Blaze and families of the victims, the families detailed other information surrounding the tragedy that they find objectionable. They question the type of helicopter being flown; why so many elite members of the military were in one helicopter at a given time; why command switched out members of the Afghani forces at the last minute; and why other procedures they considered protocol did not seem to have been followed.
“A Chinook from 1989? Unacceptable,” Strange said of the Boeing CH-47 Chinook the men were flying in that day. “93 days after killing bin Laden you put 22 [members of] SEAL Team 6 into a Chinook?”
“That helicopter is meant to transport troops and people …[it's] not made to conduct special operations,” retired admiral James Lyon said.
Billy Vaughn said he believes if his son were flying in more modern aircraft suited for special operations the outcome might have been different. But even if the outcome wasn’t changed, it would at least “be a whole lot easier to live with,” he said.
Lyon called the details — and remaining questions — surrounding the event “pure dereliction of duty.”
“This is the same dereliction of duty you see reflected in Benghazi today,” he continued. “Not to come to the aid of our diplomats and our personnel when we’re under attack is un-American.”
Billy Vaughn also noted that a commander made a call to switch Afghani forces on the mission, which the families believe might have led to a leak of classified information to the Taliban about their plans. Vaughn said he doesn’t know what commander authorized this and said that fact wasn’t included in the military’s report, something he finds questionable.
What’s more, Karen Vaughn said the helicopter didn’t have an escort on its night mission to the Tangi Valley in an area that had already seen hours of hostility. This, she said, violates standard protocol.
The families and military experts on the panel lambast “rules of engagement” (ROE) that have they say in this case and in many others have prevented troops from protecting themselves adequately.
“Everybody knows our ROEs better than we do and they use them against us,” Lyon said.
On this Webb agreed.
“This is absolutely true, I’ve heard it from U.S. and Coalition forces. They say the current ROE is ridiculous …” Webb wrote.
What has been causing even more of a stir is an Islamic prayer that was said, in addition to another prayer, over the bodies in a ceremony in Afghanistan before they were brought home. TheBlaze reported in a separate article that the families believe the Arabic prayer was disrespectful and damning the soldiers to hell, while other experts say the prayer can’t easily be labeled a deliberate slap in the face.
“Our sons were subjected to a final act of betrayal by their government,” Karen Vaughn told TheBlaze of the prayer being read.
While at the same time, Islam expert Stephen Caughlin gave a bit more background on the prayer, which is common at Muslim funerals:
The prayer isn’t the only thing upsetting families. Karen Vaughn said she and other families were stunned upon receiving the bodies in Dover, Delaware, when the 38 caskets were “paraded” with equal honor.
What’s more, the bodies of all those lost were cremated and the individuals were identified based on DNA and dental records.
“Is it possible that one or more of our sons, that my son, came home under the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan’s flag all for the very guise of appeasement? The very thought fills my heart with more anger and pain than I could possibly express,” she said.
The families are now seeking a congressional investigation and will be pursing some sort of legal action on their own as well.
“Something is wrong,” Strange said. “We need a congressional inquiry. Somebody has to be accountable for the biggest loss in this war.
Was this a setup?? Were they put on that single Chinook so that they could be targeted for a kill??

A wing of Sulaymaniah's military hospital has been sealed off and 24-hour security has been posted at the door of a ward.
Inside lies an injured young man; a very special patient and prisoner.
He is 23-year-old Horr Jaffer, from Chechnya, and he is an Islamic State (IS) suicide bomber.
His capture has been a secret until now.
Sky News is the first to get access to this man who was caught in the southern Kurdish town of Jalula after his bomb part exploded.
He had been attempting to destroy a Kurd checkpoint by driving a bomb-laden car into their midst.

Khreisheh was speaking on Palestinian television last week, in an interview translated by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute),
Responding to a question about the Palestinians’ demand to appeal to the International Criminal Court at The Hague (ICC) against Israel, Khreisheh responded: “The missiles that are now being launched against Israel, each and every missile constitutes a crime against humanity, whether it hits or missed, because it is directed at civilian targets…Therefore, targeting civilians, be it one civilian or a thousand, is considered a crime against humanity.” Relating to Israel’s mode of operation in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge, Khreisheh states: “Please note that many of our people in Gaza appeared in TV and said that the Israeli army warned them to evacuate their homes before bombardment. In such a case, if someone is killed, the law considers it a mistake rather than intentional killing, because (the Israelis) followed the legal procedures.”Read the full story here.
Yet Israel are seen as the terrorists and war mongers because Israel protects its citizens and Hamas uses theirs as human shields leading to thousands more casualties. But Hamas tells their civilians not to evacuate because the more civilians that are killed the more they can gain the worlds sympathy.
A shocking video depicting the antagonism of the Obama and his administration towards Israel. It makes you wonder what could be provoking the president of a democratic superpower to behave in such an incomprehensible way towards the one sane and tolerant democracy in the middle-east. Not to be believed.
I'm so sick of stupid Obama and his bias towards our only ally in the middle east, Israel. Obama wants them to have open borders while Hamas is bombing Israel daily. Would he expect the US to restrain if we were bombed daily and three of our teens were killed by Hamas terrorists? Apparently Obama doesn't care about borders as he leaves ours open to criminals, terrorists and an invasion of foreigners from other countries. Over 50K have come since October after he pushed deferred action allowing thousands of illegal immigrant children who were here already citizenship. Now thousands more are coming thinking they will get to become citizens because they know if they send unaccompanied minors to the US they can get asylum and be allowed to stay with family in the US.
This Marine General is sounding the alarm that terrorists, drug cartel and smugglers are using the same smuggling routes these illegal immigrants are taking and coming into the US while Obama has cut the military budget to help deter this kind of crime.

Obama is not upholding his oath to protect and defend our borders, and enforce our laws. He is leaving us vulnerable to our enemies, criminals and allowing a foreign invasion on our borders. As the video says he treats our allies like an enemy and our enemies, including foreigners like allies.
Many residents of Mosul say they prefer life under ISIS to that under Iraqi army control

A taxi driver, made to kneel on the side of the road, trembling as a gun is put to his head and the trigger is pulled. In one summary execution, the bodies of five men are shown convulsing under the force of the bullets being fired into their backs.
The men of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, the jihadists now rampaging across northern Iraq are proud of their murders. The real footage, posted online as propaganda videos for the group, reveals the cruel psychopathy of men whose humanity has been lost to it’s extremist cause.
Less than one week ago the jihadists seized control of Iraq’s second city, Mosul, where they have set to work imposing the hardline rules and summary justice of their “Islamic State”.
As many as 500,000 Iraqis escaped Mosul as the city fell and the Iraqi army melted away.
But now, tens of thousands have decided to return.
I can't believe any sane Iraqui citizen would rather live under Islamic jihadist control than the current Iraqi govt...sounds like they are living in fear and willing to return if it will spare them their lives....

Primary to be placed in special measures by Ofsted as parents and staff detail campaign of 'Islamisation’ in city
The Birmingham school at the centre of an alleged campaign of “Islamisation” by Muslim radicals is to be placed in “special measures” by the Government’s education watchdog in a move that could see its head teacher and governors removed.
Park View, previously rated “outstanding” by Ofsted, will be downgraded to “inadequate”, the lowest possible score, in two categories, leadership and management, senior education sources said.
This enables Ofsted to place the school in special measures, allowing the watchdog, if it wishes, to remove the school’s entire leadership.
The move, described as “seismic” by senior educational sources, follows a highly unusual two Ofsted inspections in the past three weeks at the school, the alleged victim of a campaign by Islamists called a “Trojan Horse” to remove secular head teachers and install Islamic practices in Birmingham state schools.
It will be embarrassing for the inspectorate and the Prime Minister, David Cameron, who previously hailed Park View as an example of educational excellence.
In extensive interviews with The Sunday Telegraph, more than a dozen sources disclosed how children at one supposedly non-religious primary school, Oldknow, were led in anti-Christian chanting by one of their teachers at assembly.
The school also conducts weekly Friday prayers, has organised at least three school trips to Mecca subsidised from public funds, and requires all pupils to learn Arabic — almost unheard of at a primary school.
The school sign at Oldknow Academy in Small Heath, Birmingham (ANDREW FOX)
It also runs its own madrassah, or religious school. Oldknow’s highly successful non-Muslim head teacher has been driven from her post for resisting this “Islamising agenda”, this newspaper has learnt.
The head of another successful primary school, Springfield, received death threats, had his car tyres slashed and is under “non-stop attack” by radical governors, according to parents, other governors and staff at the school.
Several sources said their schools had repeatedly appealed to Birmingham city council and the education inspectorate Ofsted for help, but were ignored.
This newspaper has also established that one of the alleged leaders of the Trojan Horse plot, Tahir Alam, is an Ofsted inspector and is employed as a “specialist in school governance” by Birmingham city council. Mr Alam says the plot is a fabrication and denies any involvement.
The council has downplayed the fundamentalist activity. Its leader, Sir Albert Bore, dismissed the allegations as “defamatory” and said there are “no serious flaws” in its management of schools.

Alton Nolen, 30, allegedly killed Colleen Hufford, 54, in Moore, Oklahoma
The woman beheaded by a Muslim convert was a grandmother who had lost her home in a tornado, it emerged today.
Alton Alexander Nolen, 30, is accused of killing Colleen Hufford, 54, and stabbing Traci Johnson, 43, who apparently were attacked randomly at the Vaughan Foods facility in Moore on Thursday, after he was fired from his job
Hufford, who had been married for 25 years, had lost her family home in the Moore tornado.
Today it was revealed that Nolen had served less than two years of a six-year prison sentence for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, reports News OK.
According to records he went to prison March 10, 2011, to start a two-year sentence for marijuana possession and another two-year sentence for assaulting a highway patrol trooper, the website reported.
He began his six-year sentence for cocaine possession April 26, 2011, records show - due to plea agreements with prosecutors, he was allowed to serve the three prison sentences at the same time.
So sad, and what's worse is they are already calling it workplace violence like Ft. Hood and won't call it the obvious...lslamic terrorism!

These are some of the AQ terrorists that Obama has been arming in Syria, they have now spread into Iraq.
Even Al Qaeda thinks ISIL is too extreme. Here's why.
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, the radical Al Qaeda offshoot storming toward the Iraqi capital of Baghdad right now, is terrifying.
ISIL insurgents have carried out mass executions, random killings, public crucifixions, amputations and beheadings across Syria and Iraq where it wants to establish a Sunni Islamic caliphate governed under strict Sharia law.
Background about ISIL from GlobalPost: Where ISIL, the jihadist group that is seizing Iraq, came from and what it wants
ISIL is considered so extreme that core Al Qaeda moved to distance itself from it earlier this year, suggesting the group is too violent. Seriously. Iraq's security forces know: ISIL's attack on the Iraqi city of Mosul this week prompted the US-trained Iraqi soldiers to strip off their uniforms in the street and run for their lives.
Here are just some examples of ISIL's brutality.
Be warned: the images and videos are disturbing.
and these are the jihadists that have been aiding AQ in Syria that Obama has been arming!
President Jonathan Goodnight of Nigeria asked President Obama to help him fight Boko Haram last fall.
I know he was serious about it because he does what anybody who is serious about making their case with our elected officials must do: He hired a high-dollar lobbyist to do his talking for him.
It cost Nigeria $3 million to hire the Patton Boggs lobbying firm to explain how bad Boko Haram is to American politicians. If that doesn’t tell you where things are with our government (and I’m not talking about the Rs and the Ds, I am talking about our government) then nothing will.
One of the most important things President Goodnight wanted was to have Washington define Boko Haram as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, something the State Department has refused to do. This would have made it possible to track monies going to fund Boko Haram, which, in my opinion, is a key factor in bringing them down.I’ve written before about the American government’s refusal to do this.
American officials have been talking a lot since the groundswell of public outrage created by the kidnapping of around 300 Nigerian school girls by Boko Haram. As it becomes clear that the girls were kidnapped to sell and use as sex slaves, public outrage has deepened, leading to even more Beltway chatter on the subject.
Figures....now they pretend to care...after all it's likely Christians who were kidnapped...Obama does nothing to help the persecuted Christians in these countries from Syria to Nigeria he has ignored their pleas for help.
The aircraft was carrying 4.566 tonnes of mangosteens - an exotic fruit - and 200kg of batteries which were part of the mystery consignment weighing nearly 2.5 tonnes.
Eleven terrorists with links to Al Qaeda have been arrested on suspicion of being involved in the disappearance of MH370Suspects were arrested in the capital Kuala Lumpur and the state of KedahSaid to members of violent new terror group said to be planning attacksInterrogations came after demands from agencies including FBI and MI6
A group of 11 terrorists with links to Al Qaeda were yesterday being interrogated on whether they are behind the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
The suspects were arrested in the capital Kuala Lumpur and in the state of Kedah last week and are members of a violent new terror group said to be planning bomb attacks in Muslim countries.
The interrogations come after international investigators, including the FBI and MI6, asked for the militants, whose ages range from 22 to 55 and include students, odd-job workers, a young widow and business professionals, to be questioned intensively about Flight MH370.
During the trial of Sulaiman Abu Ghaith Osama Bin Laden's son-in-law, Saajid Badat, a British-born Muslim from Gloucester, said he had been instructed at a terrorist training camp in Afghanistan to give a shoe bomb to the Malaysians.
He said: 'I gave one of my shoes to the Malaysians. I think it was to access the cockpit.'
Badat, who spoke via video link and is in hiding in the UK, told the New York court the Malaysian plot was being masterminded by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the principal architect of 9/11.
A mystery surrounding the cargo being carried by the missing Malaysian Airlines plane emerged on Friday when it was discovered that it had been loaded with items not specified on the manifest.
The aircraft was carrying 4.566 tonnes of mangosteens - an exotic fruit - and a shipment of lithium batteries, which were part of a separate consignment.
The batteries weighed 200kg, but that separate consignment totalled 2.453 tonnes. So what was being carried to make up the 2.253 tonnes in that separate shipment?
Questions have been raised as Malaysia Airlines said it will close assistance centres in Beijing and Kuala Lumpur for the families of the 239 passengers and crew on board the Boeing 777-200ER jet.
I saw this earlier on RT.com and other sites are now starting to report it...haven't seen anything in MSM yet...but I'm sure it will make its way there once they are done celebrating themselves at the WHCD tonight.
Sounds like this could be a likely link to the missing plane...but will it lead to anything??

That's how you take care of Islamic enemies....something Obama needs to learn.
Channel 4 has responded to criticism of its censorship of the Jesus & Mo cartoon by saying it did not want to cause offence to its audience.
The letter, from Steve Reynolds of Channel 4 Viewer Enquiries, reads:
As we are sure you can appreciate, this is a very sensitive subject for many viewers. Channel 4 News editorial staff gave great consideration to the issues involved and believe that they reached a fair and balanced judgement, weighing up the potential for offence to some viewers by showing the depiction of the Prophet Mohammed and the necessity of showing the cartoon in full.
The senior editorial team decided that the showing of the entire illustration, whilst likely to cause offence, was not integral to the story, and therefore took the decision to pixelate. Whilst we acknowledge your views, we believe that on balance this was the correct decision and as a rule, where we consider the likelihood of significant offence to our audience, we will attempt to mitigate against that. As to not pixelating the image of Jesus, it was not felt that the same level of offence was likely to be provoked as the image is commonly depicted in cartoon form.
We appreciate you taking the time to contact us and be assured your comments have been logged for the information of our News team.
Terry Sanderson, president of the National Secular Society, commented: "The claim that showing the entire illustration was 'not integral to the story' is ludicrous. It was the story. The truth is that Channel 4, like so many others, is intimidated and afraid of the reaction from violent extremists. Such extremists have got this country in a fearful stranglehold that is gradually destroying our commitment to freedom of speech. We may have abolished the blasphemy law, but who needs it when the same effect can be achieved by terrorising people?"
More political correctness on display in the UK...pandering to the sensitivities of Muslims but it's ok to offend Christians because Jesus has been made fun of before and Christians won't kill you.
Iranian deputy minister of industries shot dead in Tehran - IRNA
DUBAI (Reuters) - An unidentified attacker shot dead Iranian Deputy Industries Minister Safdar Rahmatabadi in Tehran on Sunday night, the state news agency IRNA reported.
