White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer emotionally described the sacrifice of slain Navy SEAL Chief Special Warfare Operator William Owens, saying, “What [Owens] did and what we got out of that mission … is going to save American lives.”
Owens perished in an operation against al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) over the weekend. Trump spoke with Owens’ family this week.
“It’s hard to ever say something was successful when you lose a life, but you got to understand that Chief Owens, he went back, deployed 12 times because he loved his country and he believed in the mission,” Spicer said.
Spicer continued: “You never want to call something a success 100% when someone’s hurt or killed … but I think that when you recognize that an individual like this loved this country so much, and deployed over and over again because he knew that the mission that he was conducting was so important to our protection, our freedom, our safety.”
