Bill Owens, the father of fallen Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, criticized President Trump in the Miami Herald for a US military raid in Yemen where his son was killed.
“I want an investigation…The government owes my son an investigation,” Bill Owens told the Miami Herald in his first interview since his son’s death in January. “Why at this time did there have to be this stupid mission when it wasn’t even barely a week into his administration? Why?” “For two years prior, there were no boots on the ground in Yemen — everything was missiles and drones — because there was not a target worth one American life. Now, all of a sudden we had to make this grand display?”
