Remember how Fox News outed and endangered the life of a Navy SEAL Team Six member who took part in the killing of Osama Bin Laden? That was so last month! This month, Fox is all concern about the SEALS' safety - now that it has an excuse to use it to attack the Obama administration.
In an "EXCLUSIVE" report, Fox is touting accusations from the parents of another SEAL Team Six member that the unit endangered by Obama administration statements. Unlike the SEAL Fox outed, this SEAL who, sadly, died in 2011, had nothing to do with the raid.
Identifying the Special Operations Force behind the Usama bin Laden raid amounted to placing a target on the back of the team members as well as their families, according to the parents of Aaron Vaughn, a member of SEAL Team Six who was killed in Afghanistan in 2011.
The Vaughns spoke with Fox News as part of an ongoing report on the war in Afghanistan for an upcoming episode of the "Fox Files." While the Vaughns do not believe their son was part of the bin Laden mission, they said the entire team shared the victory, and eventually the shock, of being named.
They are, however, being disgracefully exploited by FNC in the attempt to wiggle out of it’s own shameful scoop. It’s one thing for Obama to praise a team that even the pebbles on the ground know are specially trained for such operations.
It’s quite another thing to provide the name, place of residence and (according to some reports) telephone number of an individual, even if he wrote a book that may contain classified information.
Closing my eyes, I see a whole room of agents of Homeland Security with feet up on their desks as they read the book and take notes.
