Did an Imam Really Use Arabic Prayer to Covertly Damn Fallen Seal Team 6 Members to Hell During Their Funeral?
Parents of fallen service members spoke at a press conference on Thursday morning, an event during which they accused the U.S. government of complicity in the deaths of their sons. The families highlighted a number of grievances, including the notion that military brass invited a Muslim cleric to their children‚Äôs funeral in 2011 ‚ÄĒ an imam who they claim ‚Äúdisparaged in Arabic the memory of these servicemen.‚ÄĚ
Three families of fallen Navy SEAL Team 6 special forces members and one family of an Army National Guardsman held the event at the National Press Club to make this startling allegation, among many others. Their children perished during the fatal Chinook helicopter crash that occurred in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011. The presser was an effort, as noted in a press release, to corroborate the notion that the U.S. government is ‚Äúas much responsible for the deaths of their sons as is the Taliban.‚ÄĚ...

It's not the Imam's fault that Christian chaplains don't have any gonads.

The individual, someone well-versed in Islam and Islamic law, called the imam‚Äôs comments ‚Äústandard fare at a funeral rite‚ÄĚ and reiterated that a slight may not have been intentional.
Coughlin said that responsibility should fall on the generals who purportedly did not call for a translator beforehand. ‚ÄúThat general should have known what that guy was saying [and what it meant],‚ÄĚ he added.
