“Today we remember one of the most horrific attacks against America. The attack at Pearl Harbor resulted in the death of thousands of servicemen and women as well as civilians. As a result of this attack, the United States entered World War II. Not only should we remember those who died on this day in 1941, but we should also remember the response of those who fought for their country during World War II and the response of the American people who showed a similar spirit of determination, dedication, and support.
Today we will also witness a travesty in the arraignment of three Navy SEALs who are accused of assaulting an enemy detainee. Navy SEALs are some of the most elite special forces in our nation’s military and in the world. The apologetic attitude that is pervasive in our federal government only paralyzes these elite forces from protecting our freedom and our country. The interests of other nations come second to those of the American people and the United States of America.”
