Billy and Karen Vaughn, the parents of a SEAL Team Six soldier who was killed in the line of duty, is calling for President Obama to resign.
The couple lost their son, Aaron Carson Vaughn, in 2011 after his helicopter went down in Afghanistan. About three-dozen other people died in the incident.
They wrote a letter to Obama on Monday to slam how he’s handling dealing with ISIS, or the Islamic State. They apparently drafted the letter after journalist James Foley was beheaded by alleged ISIS members a few weeks ago.
The two also panned Obama’s golf vacation, reported The Daily Mail.
“As Commander-in-Chief, your actions – or lack thereof – Mr President, cost lives,” it says. “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.”
It adds: “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.”
The letter was published on the World Tribune. “You have been at the helm during unprecedented national security leaks — including, but not limited to the outing of SEAL Team VI on the Bin laden raid, the outing of the Pakistani doctor who provided the intelligence for that raid, the outing of Afghanistan’s CIA station chief, and the outing of your personal “kill list” to make you look tough. In addition, 75 percent of American deaths in Afghanistan and 83 percent of Americans-wounded-in-action have occurred on your watch, according to icasualties.org,” it adds.
Billy Vaughn elaborated on the matter to the Mail: “I’d like to see him have some passion about anything going on in the world instead of just speaking in a monotone voice like he has a script that has been made up.”
The couple’s letter has also been making the rounds on conservative and Republican-oriented websites and blogs.
