Three families of Navy SEAL Team VI special forces servicemen, along with one family of an Army National Guardsman, held a press conference on May 9, 2013.
LTG (Ret) William G. “Jerry” Boykin:
“On the day that this crash occurred, why didn’t we suppress the known enemy positions there? Why didn’t we take them out and protect that helicopter?”
“One of my big concerns is the Rules of Engagement that have created quite a restrictive environment for our special operations people.”
