Peoria Journal Star:
"DOVER AIR FORCE BASE - President Donald Trump made an unannounced and secretive trip to honor the arrival of the Chief Petty Officer William "Ryan" Owens, the Navy SEAL from Peoria who was killed over the weekend while on a raid in Yemen.
The family had requested no media at the "dignified transfer," according to a White House press pool report. The "dignified transfer" is a ceremony where the remains of a fallen solider, sailor, Marine or airman are returned from the location overseas where they were killed. It's a solemn affair and usually held at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware. ...
"I just returned from an amazing visit with a great, great family at Dover. It is something very sad, very beautiful. Ryan, a great man.".......
More: "The Web was full of tributes for Owens,including from San Francisco Giants baseball player Buster Posey, who posted a tribute to the fallen SEAL on his Instagram site."
"Ryan was a member of Seal Team 6 and a big Giants fan. He would come to spring training frequently and I had the honor of meeting him and his son in 2012. For me, it is easy to take for granted the life that my family and I get to live everyday. Words don't do justice for the gratitude that I have for people like Ryan that sacrifice their lives fighting against evil, so that we may live with freedom. Unfortunately for Ryan's family, they lost a husband and a father this weekend. I can't imagine the pain they must be going through. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. Ryan Owens was a hero that is gone way too soon."
UPDATE: Daily Wire: NBC Hypes Terrorist's Daughter as 'American Girl'
Congrats to NBC, The Enemy Propaganda Network, for using fuzzy soft-focus photos of Anwar al-Awlaki staring thoughtfully into mid-distance and for handing their NBC megaphone over to terrorists, regurgitating paragraph after paragraph of al Queda claims uncritically.
The AINO (American In Name Only) terrorist al-Awlaki was indeed a thoughtful guy--when he wasn't, say, killing soldiers at Fort Hood.
NOTE TO NBC:
al-Awlaki's daughter Nora was a Human Shield, killed by terrorists, not by SEALS.
|She was American Family, too, NBC. Not a prop for your Trump-bashing.|
The SEALS were attacked trying to protect and free her--and all of us--from the enemies of civilization, the ones NBC seems so eager to assist.
But now that you mention it, it's almost as if the terrorists were waiting for the SEALS.
Did an Obama Mole in the bureaucracy warn them we were coming, just to "Get Trump"?
Is that why Democrats are stalling all levels of confirmations, to keep all their moles in place in a kind of slow-rolling coup?
Sadly, you can't put it past these gutter-dwelling political gangsters.
Investigate that, NBC.
