The grieving parents of a Navy SEAL killed in Afghanistan say major blunders by the U.S. military and the White House led to his death — and described how his body and the bodies of other soldiers were "desecrated'' in an Islamic ceremony at an American base.
"As our son's body lay there [with the other soldiers], their first amendment rights and freedom of religion were violated,'' an emotional Bill Vaughn told "The Steve Malzberg Show'' on Newsmax TV.Vaughn's disturbing claim came in the midst of a Congressional probe of an alleged cover-up in the facts surrounding the deadly attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya last Sept. 11th.
The couple are pressing for their own Congressional investigations into the downing of the chopper — why it happened and what mistakes were made. Aaron Carson Vaughn, an elite Navy SEAL died on Aug. 6, 2011 when a helicopter carrying 30 American troops was blasted out of the sky.
