“It’s gut-wrenching and disgusting to me that we choose to stand by and do nothing,” Debbie Lee, whose son Marc Alan Lee was the first Navy SEAL to be killed in the Operation Iraqi Freedom while fighting insurgents in Ramadi, told FoxNews.com. “Our troops are more than capable to secure that city and they are just not given the ability. “It’s because they [Washington] refuse to send troops that we are seeing this insurgence,” she added.

This Memorial Day Remember Ramadi

All too many of today’s politicians are too cowardly to speak the truth about what is really at stake in our war in the Middle East. They are unworthy of leading a great Nation founded and preserved upon the sacrifices of those we honor today. So this Memorial Day, if there was ever a time to respectfully breach President James A. Garfield’s admonition to stay silent beside the graves of our war dead, today is that day.
