After members of Navy SEAL Team Six succeeded in taking out Osama bin Laden, President Barack Obama was quick to take credit for kill. Fifteen months later, he’s made it possible for Ali Mussa Daqduq, a Hezbollah terrorist from Lebanon who tortured and killed five Americans in Iraq, to walk free. Now, U.S. Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), a retired Army lieutenant colonel, wants to know who’s going to take responsibility for this action.
In the Fox News Channel video above, Congressman West makes several good points, noting that he’d like to see the president come forward and talk to the families of those five American soldiers and show some type of plan that they have to try to get Dacduq back in U.S. custody and preventing future catch-and-release actions of individuals who’ve killed Americans.
