A group of Navy SEALS were forced to return from a hostage rescue mission in Afghanistan after President Barack Obama failed to approve their operation while he was on vacation on Martha’s Vineyard.
According to sources speaking to Ami Newswire, the special operations force traveled swiftly to recover two hostages, but were ordered to stand down because Obama did not have time to approve the mission.
Obama approved the mission a day later, but when the special forces team returned, the hostages had been moved just four hours earlier, according to the report.
The two civilian hostages are English teachers: United States citizen Kevin King and Australian citizen Timothy Weeks.
