The father of deceased Marine Joseph Logan sent a scathing letter to President Obama after the tragic death of his son. The man recieved a condolence letter in the mail. Apparently he did not feel that was adequate enough so he took to writing the President a personal letter making clear how he really feels about the Commander in Chief.
According to the Conservative Brief the letter went viral. It read the following,
“Mr. Barrack Hussein Obama, I am deeply saddened that you are the President of the United States. You sir are an embarrassment to the Oval Office.
My son, as well as most Marines I know, despise you and your lack of representation for our military. Your ridiculous rules of engagement have caused the massive amount of casualties on your watch in Afghanistan. While we watch your media pander to your administration and clearly sweep things under the rug for you.
I fully understand Marines die. You have tied their hands & feet! I am thankful I did not serve under a Comm. in Chief such as you. I am sickened that my son had to. I wonder… I doubt that you will see this, I hope you do though!”
The top of the letter read, “I wonder how many of these get returned to you.”
Joseph Logan was killed at the young age of 22 on January 19th, 2012 with five other military personnel when his helicopter crashed. His father felt that the letter was too formulaic, disgenuine, and impersonal. Furthermore, that the letter was disrespectful considering the President did little more than sign his name.
Logan’s father said, “he would have been more mad about this than I am.” Moreover, “where are the representatives of our government? Where is the honor and the respect that all of these soldiers deserve?” he asked.
The White House didn’t respond to KPRCs request for a comment on the issue. It was requested three times. They faced further scrutiny this past year when the administration was accused of using a automated system to send letters to the families of deceased Navy SEALS.
