30 Jan OBAMA serves as a reminder, lest we forget
JUAN SAYS: Lest we all forget. Our Commander-In-Chief fell short of our expectations, not only with his lack of sensitivity and empathy, but as a leader, who takes responsibility of his actions and receives his fallen men. Even at the height of controversy, even at the most uncomfortable circumstances, a leader must do what is humane and what is right, not because he is obligated to do so, but because he is a human being too.
In 2011, 22 Navy Seals and eight American troops died in Afghanistan during a rescue mission. An insurgent shot a rocket-propelled grenade while transporting the U.S. service members and commandos to the scene of an on-going engagement between ISAF and insurgent forces.
