A Muslim spy ring was reportedly uncovered and has been linked to the recent death of Navy SEAL William Ryan Owens.
The spies, Abid, Imran and Jamal Awan, were reportedly hired by former President Barack Obama’s administration and given security clearance with access to sensitive information. The brothers were fired by President Donald Trump’s administration shortly after the death of Owens during a raid in Yemen.
The brothers were fired because they were suspected of accessing congressional computer networks “without permission,” reports The Daily Caller.
According to the Daily Mail, al-Qaeda fighters were prepared for American soldiers and knew they were coming.
Defense Secretary James Mattis released a statement about Owens following his death.
“Ryan gave his full measure for our nation, and in performing his duty, he upheld the noblest standard of military service,” the statement read.
“The United States would not long exist were it not for the selfless commitment of such warriors. I thank our gallant troops and their families for their dedication to protecting this nation, and I pass our respects to Ryan’s family in this most difficult time.”
The grandfather of Nora, who was killed in the Yemen raid, spoke of the circumstances surrounding the raid.
“My granddaughter was staying for a while with her mother, so when the attack came, they were sitting in the house, and a bullet struck her in the neck at 2:30 past midnight. Other children in the same house were killed,” he said, Daily Mail reported.
“[The SEALs] entered another house and killed everybody in it, including all the women. They burned the house. There is an [assumption] there was a woman from Saudi Arabia who was with al Qaeda. All we know is that she was a children’s teacher.”
The story of the alleged spy ring quickly went viral, with many calling for Obama to be held accountable.
“They should be tried for treason and dealt with severely. If they leaked info that botched the mission that’s treasonous intent,” one Mad World News reader wrote on the site’s Facebook page.
“The Muslim brotherhood is embedded in our government and Barack Obama put them there. Look at the people he hired and who they are connected to,” another added.
