Navy SEALs to Obama: We Aren't Bumps in the Road

Navy SEALs are hitting back against President Obama again for his comments this week that the events in Libya, including the murder of four Americans, were "bumps in the road." Navy SEALs Tyrone S. Woods and Glen A. Doherty were among those brutally murdered in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya on 9/11. Former Navy SEAL Ryan Zinke, an outspoken critic of President Obama, released the following statement on his Super PAC website:

The President refuses to admit that his policy of appeasement and apology has failed.  The murder of our Ambassador and two former Navy SEALs is more than a “bump in the road,” it is a global catastrophe where America is seen as being weak and vulnerable by our enemies. This President has failed to establish a red line for Iran’s nuclear ambitions and has failed to recognize the scale and implications of the attacks against us. Reagan had it right: don’t negotiate with terrorists and recognize the clear and present danger of not being willing to act or lead from the front.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney denied President Obama was referring to the murders of Americans when he said the comment and tried to explain the comments were in reference to countries rebuilding after revolution.

“The President was making clear that in this historic transformation that’s taking place in the region that progress won't come in a straight line, that there will be challenges."

“This transformation will not happen overnight and we will certainly encounter challenges.”

“The President as you know is not minimizing what we recognize as historic transformations taking place and the President is certainly not minimizing the challenges."

‘That assertion (of Obama referring to the murders of Americans as 'bumps in the road') is both desperate and offensive.”

“There is a certain desperate attempt to grasp at words for political advantage here and once again, that’s offensive.”
