The parents of a SEAL Team 6 member, who died in Afghanistan, have called on President Barack Obama to resign, saying that his "cowardly lack of leadership" in his failure to confront the barbaric Islamic State (IS) threatens U.S. and world security, the Newsmax website reports today (September 3, 2014).
In an open letter published on the WorldTribune website, Billy and Karen Vaughn, whose son Aaron died in 2011, wrote that they were stunned by Obama's decision to go golfing directly after giving a somber speech about the beheading of American journalist James Foley by the jihadists, also known as ISIS.
"As commander-in-chief, your actions, or lack thereof, Mr. President, cost lives," said the Vaughns, whose son was killed in action when a Chinook helicopter was shot down over Afghanistan with 30 American soldiers on board.
"As you bumble about in your golf cart, slapping on a happy face and fist-pounding your buddies, your cowardly lack of leadership has left a gaping hole -- not only in America's security but the security of the entire globe. Your message has come across loud and clear, sir: You are not up to this job. You know it. We know it. The world knows it."
