Mom of first Navy SEAL to die in Iraq responds to news of Osama bin Laden’s death

“I have gone through a scope of emotions this evening as I learned that Osama had been killed,” writes Debbie Lee, mother of Marc Lee, the first U.S. Navy SEAL killed in Iraq. 

Debbie and Marc Lee


“I received a text from a friend, ‘we have Osama.’ I told my son Kristofer to turn on the news. I listened as I heard that in fact Osama had been killed and that we had the body and had confirmed it was him.


“I screamed jubilant, joyous screams for justice.

“I began shaking and thought of my son Marc who bwillingly gave his life fighting the war on terror which was lead by despots like Osama Bin Laden and Sadaam Hussein.

“If it wouldn’t have been for Osama I would have my son. 

“I thanked God for giving us the victory and information which lead to the Navy SEAL’s successful mission of killing one of the world’s most vile, inhuman, deranged men.  He was America’s Most Wanted Terrorist. 

“My phone began ringing and texts and emails frantically began coming in.

Marc Lee


“O, how I wish Marc was here to celebrate this victory. Somehow I think maybe it wasn’t just human intelligence that brought this about, but somehow think Marc was invloved with Heavenly Intelligence that helped.

“Once again the tears flow as I realized how much I miss him.  Through the evening I have thought over and over about all of our braves warriors who gave their very last breath in this fight. We will never forget their sacrifice or their families who have given their very best to this country.

Thank you is not enough. 

‘I also think of every one of our men and women who served so sacrificially, courageously and faithfully in this war on terror.

“They volunteered to find the enemy that attacked us on 9-11 and bring them to justice for their, horrific, hateful, cowardly actions. To each one of you I say thank you for the sacrifices you have made defending me and my freedoms. You are my heroes! 


“To my Navy SEAL ‘adopted sons’ I say:

“Job well done. Momma Lee is so proud of you. As President Bush said you are ‘the elite of the elite.’  I am blessed to be part of the community and have your love and support. You never cease to amaze me.

“To the terrorists, we send a strong statement:

“We will hunt you, find you and bring you to justice as we did with Osama. Osama did not find his 72 virgins waiting but found his justice in Hell with another famous enemy of the one true God.

“We thank God for hearing our prayers and leading us to victory. May God continue to bless our brave warriors serving in the military and give us victory.


“May God bless our troops and once again bring us back to our knees to pray that our nation will once again be “One nation under God.'” 

“Celebrating with our Heroes!

“Debbie Lee”

      As I sit here at my desk, my heart is overwhelmed with joy, and my eyes are filled with tears. To know that we finally see our day of “justice for all” who perished in the 9/11 attacks. Their spirits can now rest in knowing that this evil man will now meet is real maker!

      Your headline (along with MANY others of the (obvious) right-wing persuasion reads:

      “Obama bin Laden’s death”

      Do you need to be reminded that his name is actually OSAMA (or Usama) – NOT “Obama”.

      DO BETTER!!!

      I am saddened by anyone who rejoices at anyone’s death. What a waste of 100s of 1000s of lives and $$$trillions to seek revenge against this sick Saudi expatriate. There is no justice in slaughter: pretending that OBL or anyone of the approximately 1000 tortured and falsely imprisoned Gitmo detainees ever had a fair trial is absurd. They were tried in the court of warmonger propaganda. Their deaths are mere further warmonger propaganda.
      Probably others planned and executed the 9/11 hijackings. We choose to never know why the 3 towers were demolished with nanothermite.

      Statements like: “Osama did not find his 72 virgins waiting but found his justice in Hell with another famous enemy of the one true God.” only serve to inflame the so-called “culture war”. Puke-making. Utter pseudo-pious, self-righteous religionism. No wonder America is not respected in the world anymore.

      At least you got the headline corrected. Talk about your (un-)intentional slurs!!!

      Sometimes, it becomes tough, however, Justice is always in order. I pesonally believe our Govenment has done the right thing in this case. To this mother: The photo of your son shows him as a happy, loving person. As a surviving military widow, and the parent of one who spent 15mos. in Iraq and prior to that, a year in Korea, we share in your joy for Justice being served on behalf of your son, and all whose lives have been snuffed out as a result of terriorism. Furthermore, It is noted that you showed respect for President Bush concerning this matter. This too, is a good thing. However, it is our sitting President Obama who is the commander-in-chief that Justice was rendered. In your post, you show no appreciation for his efforts. It is always a good thing to give credit where credit is due.

      I am appalled at some of the stories that BeliefNet is beginning to display. Should we hate all Muslims? Should we hate all Whites? Should we hate all Blacks? Should we hate all Jews? Should we hate all Latinos? Get my point, we should NOT hate anyone. All that jubilation is just a sign to me of how far we still need to go. That mother says if it wasn’t for OBL she would still have her son. She does not know this. He could have gotten killed in a car accident, died of cancer etc… – how shortsighted but that is that white privileged mentality speaking and the loss of a child pain. How many jumping in jubilation have wronged someone, lied on someone, bullied someone – is your justice coming? Joining the military is a volunteer act, no one has been drafted lately. You join with the possibility that you may lose your life in war. America has terrorized innocent people for years but when it comes back to slap us in the face, then we do not know how to deal with it. This whole OBL is sad and I wonder how many will be jumping for joy when the reprisals begin, when there is more innocent bloodshed. As long as we hate, we will beget hate. I know it is not easy as I am dealing with my own struggle against a terrorist Jew, but that does not mean I should hate all Jews, nor does it mean I should hate him. I am about to unsubscribe to BeliefNet, seems like satan is seeping in. :o( I come to BeliefBet for comfort, strength, inpiration & motivation not HATE, I struggle with that enough against my oppressors, I need to be lifted up, not made to think that rejoicing in someone’s death is okay, right of God! Sorely disappointed.

      “I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” –Martin Luther King, Jr.
