Obama’s hand-picked head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff made a recent quote to the media that isn’t sitting well with many.

WASHINGTON (Stars and Stripes) — America’s top military officer said defending the embattled Iraqi city of Ramadi is of secondary importance compared with protecting the Beiji oil refinery from Islamic State militants.

The group may be on the verge of overrunning Ramadi, according to news reporters. But Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the city’s fall would be more of a humanitarian problem than a strategic setback.

The city itself it’s not symbolic in any way,” he told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday.

What a douche.

Along comes a Gold Star Mom to correct him:

I am shaking and tears are flowing down my cheeks as I watch the news and listen to the insensitive, pain inflicting comments made by you in regards to the fall of Ramadi.

“The city itself is not symbolic in any way”? Oh, really? Are you willing to meet with me and with the families who have lost a son, daughter, husband, wife, father, mother, aunt, uncle, grandson, or teammate?

My son Marc Lee was the first Navy SEAL who sacrificed his life in Ramadi Iraq Aug 2, 2006. His blood is still in that soil and forever will be. Remember that was when so many of our loved ones were taken from us. You said that “it’s not been declared part of the caliphate on one hand or central to the future of Iraq.” My son and many others gave their future in Ramadi. Ramadi mattered to them. Many military analysts say that as goes Ramadi so goes Iraq.

What about the troops who sacrificed their limbs and whose lives will never be the same. Our brave warriors who left a piece of themselves in Ramadi. What about the troops who struggle with PTS/TBI who watched their teammates breath their last or carried their wounded bodies to be medevac’d out of Ramadi.

I’ve traveled to Ramadi and visited Camp Marc Lee in 2007. I brought back soil from that city where Marc breathed his last. I interviewed Iraqi General Anwer in 2010 when I returned. I asked him “If you could say one thing to the American people what would you tell them? He paused and with deep emotion said “We will tell our children, our grandchildren, for generations to come we will tell them what Americans have done. There is American blood poured out on our soil.” It seems the Iraqis understand the importance more than you do sir.

You sir owe an apology to the families whose loved ones blood was shed in Ramadi. Ramadi matters to us and is very symbolic to us. You need to apologize to our troops whose bodies were blown to pieces from IEDs and bullet holes leaving parts and pieces behind, Ramadi matters to them. You need to apologize to our troops who endured the extreme temperatures and battled the terrorists in some of the worst battlefields in Iraq, Ramadi matters to them. They carry vivid memories of the battles and the teammates whose future is gone, Ramadi matters to them.

You and this administration have minimized that Ramadi could fall, now you are minimizing that it is falling, but you Sir WILL NOT minimize the sacrifice my son Marc Lee made or any of our brave warriors!

Awaiting an Apology

  1. WOW! If only this response would go viral. Our sympathies and thanks to you Debbie and your family.

  2. A lot of good men never returned from Ramadi. 2nd Lt. Mark J. Procopio was KIA on Nov 2, 2005 while rushing to rescue/secure the site of a downed Marine helicopter.

    Tell his widow, parents, sister and rest of the family that none of our sacrifices over there mattered.

  3. Barack Obama and his pals make me want to puke.

    Who else besides me used to think we couldn’t get any worse than Jimmy “Peanut Farmer” Carter?

    How I miss that guy. At least he loved his country.

    Obama? Yeah.

    I just hope I’m still alive when it comes out that Obama is really a Muslim, was really born in Kenya, and worked behind the scenes with Muslims to cripple America. We’ll probably never be able to try him for treason and convict him, but it’s nice to imagine.


  4. I agree with Sam. When our forces headed by Moslem leaders go into 4 western states using blank amunition to conduct practice operatiion. To enforce martial law. When this happens and it is happening soon. Folks I think it’s time to take up our arms ….

  5. Obama’s entire administration is nothing but a collection of leftist twits, social misfits, academic know-it-alls, and America apologists.

    His time in office should serve to demonstrate to all how poorly leftist ideology works in the real world.
