The parents and wife of Aaron Vaughn, one of the Navy SEALS Team 6 members killed in Afghanistan, sat down for an interview with the Today Show's Matt Laurer. Vaughn's father goes off message to the obvious disappointment of Lauer, a certified member of the Omedia, and questions the role the Obama administration's efforts to politically capitalize on the alleged role their son's Navy SEAL team may have had in bin Laden's capture and death in Pakistan earlier this year had in the deaths of the Navy SEALS. Vaughn describes how his son believed there were three types of people in this world: sheep, sheep dogs and wolves. Most of us are sheep who can't see the wolves that threaten us he said. The members of his son's SEAL team were sheep dogs who understood the threat the wolves, or in this case, radical Islamists, posed to our way of life. Vaughn's father expresses his concern that high-ranking sheep may have cost the lives of his son's SEAL team by outing their role in the alleged capture of bin Laden. I say "alleged" because I question, as should all Americans, whether the capture actually took place as we were told by our government. There is reason to believe bin Laden actually died several years ago; we just weren't told about it because it didn't serve the end of pursuing purposeless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that are bankrupting this country and costing the lives of thousands of innocent American soldiers. The military industrial complex and the oil industry seem to be the primary beneficiaries of these wars. Several skeptics who claimed bin Laden's capture and death earlier this year was a big hoax by our government accurately predicted members of the SEAL team who supposedly played a key role in the heroic tale would never live to tell about it. They were right. I'm just not sure the reason Vaughn's father thinks they died is the real reason the so-called Taliban ambush took place last weekend.
UPDATE: Here's a bit of evidence that the entire capture of bin Laden has been nothing more than a Hollywood-produced political stunt to aid The One in his re-election campaign:
There may be an overtly political reason that moviegoers will be seeing the story of the Osama bin Laden raid just before they vote for president. Sony Pictures, the company distributing next year's film, hosted a fundraiser for Barack Obama on their studio's premises in California last April. So far, Sony is the only major studio to hold a political fundraiser this cycle. According to Deadline Hollywood, Sony will release the bin Laden movie, directed by Academy Award-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, on October 12, 2012--less than a month before the presidential election.
"The eyebrow does go up when you see the release date," says Douglas Urbanski, a Hollywood producer and conservative radio talk show host. Urbanski said he believes Bigelow's movie will be straightforward and apolitical, much like her 2009 war film The Hurt Locker (which won the Academy Award for Best Picture). But Sony's decision to release the bin Laden movie just weeks before the election, he says, is most likely "very, very deliberate."
Urbanski was a producer for The Contender, a 2000 political thriller with a plot that sympathized with a sex scandal-plagued Democrat and demonized a conservative Republican member of Congress. The movie was released on October 13, 2000. "It was without a doubt a deliberate attempt to influence the election," says Urbanski.I'm sorry to say that I don't believe our soldiers serve the noble cause they mistakenly believe they are serving when they enlist in the military. It's absolutely sickening that a narcissist like Obama who sacrificed nothing for this country can exploit the deaths of American soldiers to advance his re-election campaign. Hopefully, a crack documentary producer will get the real story out about the great bin Laden hoax before this movie hits the big screen.
UPDATE: If you doubt the Hollywood production theory, check out Maureen Dowd's recent column in the New York Times discussing how this movie is intended to bolster Obama's reputation and how movie producers were given unprecedented access to high level persons in our government:
The White House is also counting on the Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal big-screen version of the killing of Bin Laden to counter Obama's growing reputation as ineffectual.
The Sony film by the Oscar-winning pair who made "The Hurt Locker" will no doubt reflect the president's cool, gutsy decision against shaky odds.
The moviemakers are getting top-level access to the most classified mission in history from an administration that has tried to throw more people in jail for leaking classified information than the Bush administration.
It was clear that the White House had outsourced the job of manning up the president's image to Hollywood when Boal got welcomed to the upper echelons of the White House and the Pentagon and showed up recently -- to the surprise of some military officers -- at a C.I.A. ceremony celebrating the hero Seals.
