This is sick. Just one more example of how much Obama DOESN’T respect our servicemen & women. Navy SEAL Charlie Keating IV was killed in Iraq on Tuesday.
According to CNN, Keating died after he was sent as part of a team to rescue U.S. military advisers who had come under attack by more than 100 ISIS fighters.
How did Obama honor the fallen SEAL? By saying nothing at ALL to the American public about his death. I’d like to say we’re shocked, but this is something we’ve come to expect from this Islamo-loving president.
It’s kind of funny that former U.S. Special Operations Command boss, retired Adm. William McRaven who planned & oversaw Operation Neptune Spear, the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden, came out just a few weeks ago and said that our military hasn’t been respected since Obama came to power. Obama just showed us how much that is true.
What’s possibly even worse, is when WH press secretary Josh Earnest gave that morning’s press briefing, he didn’t mention the SEAL’s death, either. According to the Washington Free Beacon, Earnest instead detailed Obama’s trip to Flint, Michigan to discuss the water crisis, there.
First announcement at WH press briefing is about Obama's trip to Flint, not about the Navy SEAL killed in combat today

Really? It only takes a minute to honor a fallen SEAL. Earnest could’ve at least just made mention of his death, and that the president was saddened by the unfortunate event. But no, a US Special Forces operator dying in combat fighting against ISIS isn’t that big of a deal to Obama or his administration.
The Free Beacon states that a reporter eventually asked Earnest, “On the death of the U.S. Navy SEAL in Iraq, is there any reaction from the president to that or expression of condolence, and can you tell us when he was informed?”
Earnest responded by saying, “I can tell you the president has been briefed on this incident, and everyone here at the White House, including the First Family, extends our condolences to the family of the service member that was killed today in northern Iraq,” Earnest said. “This individual was the third U.S service member killed in action since the beginning of Operation Inherent Resolve, and this service member’s death reminds us of the risks our brave men and women in uniform face every single day.”
According to Fox News 2 in St. Louis, Earnest added, “it’s a reminder of the risks Americans continue to face even in advisory roles there.”
Advisory roles? Keating died in COMBAT. The president is too afraid to designate our mission in Iraq as one of combat against murdering terrorist scum. But of course, Mr. President doesn’t want to offend his Islamist friends. They might not like that!
Time and time again, Obama has shown more respect for Islamic terrorists, than our servicemen & women. That his press secretary has to be PRODDED to even make mention of a SEAL who died protecting our country is just another disgusting example of how much regard this president has for our men & women who are on the line, defending us from radical Islamists who want to kill us.
Thank God we only have to put up with Obama for a little over 7 more months.
May Navy SEAL Charlie Keating IV rest in peace, and may his family find solace knowing he died a hero defending our country.
