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”

      I agree with Dawn comments I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one. Revenge is mine said the lord. We do not repay evil for evil that is the resonsibility of our creator (GOD). Hate cannot drive out hate only love can do that.

      She has every right to hate the person(s) who killed her son including the Americans who orchestrated the attack. However, only one person said it was Osama Bin Laden and to my knowledge most of the people died in the plane crashes, and no one knows OBL except Bush.

      I am so grateful to our current president, Barack Obama, for his patience, perseverance, and careful decision-making in undertaking this complicated and difficult operation. I must assume that Mrs. Debbie Lee also meant to say thanks to President Obama.

      Unfortunately, Ms. Lee’s jubilation over the death of Osama Bin Laden is misplaced, since he had very little if anything to do with her son’s death, having never even been hiding or strongholed in Iraq . . . the real justice has yet to be served, when the trial of former President George Bush and former Vice President Dick Chaney for their war crimes, torture and corporate greed in the name of war takes place for sending thousands of American military personnel into a war against Iraq established under false pretenses, that never should have taken place . . . May God speed THAT day!!

      The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. I, you, we, are all sinners under God before Jesus. God’s words, if we have done something wrong we will be punished. That includes me, you, all of us. I, you, we are not pefect, but we should pray for ourselves, our families, our leaders and even the ones we hate. God through Jesus we will find peace in our heart, soul, mind, and body. Believe me folks I have been there, and with God. today, I would not be here.
      May we all continue to pray without ceasing. Brother K

      I agree with others who believe that it is wrong to rejoice in someone’s death, even if that person has done great evil. The bible says to pray for our enemies. A hard one I know, I’m still working on that. I am disappointed in this story because I thought it would be about forgiveness not hate.

      I do believe that sometimes war is necessary for self-defense and I am certainly not against taking out a dangerous person. I support our troops even though I don’t always agree with the policies of their leaders.

      My emotions when I first heard about this was not joy, but a profound sadness. The sadness came from the fact that Bin Laden led a wasted life and a meaningless death. He undoubtedly thought that he was doing the right thing. Imagine what good this man could have accomplished if he had chosen the path of love and forgiveness.

      I cannot and will not envision him in hell. We may fail God but God never fails us. To me justice and forgiveness go hand in hand. I believe he will get a chance to redeem himself. His true self is not darkness but light.

      We may be safer or less safe as a result of this action. Time will tell. But I will never rejoice at the death of an “enemy”

      The statement that she has every right to hate those who killed her son is correct. But God asks us to go beyond our hate and have forgiveness. Having said that I do understand that those who have been personally affected by the war and terrorist attacks have experienced a huge trauma that can take a long time to process. Because of this I cannot judge those who haven’t arrived at forgiveness yet.
