Mom of Marine killed in Afghanistan wants investigation

Kyle Griffin @kylegriffin1 3m
The mother of a Marine killed last year in Afghanistan wants an investigation of reports that her son and two other Marines may have been the targets of Taliban-linked fighters who collected a bounty on US soldiers offered by a Russian military intel unit. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/06/29/mom-of-marine-killed-in-afghanistan-wants-russia-bounty-claim-investigated.html

“I just happened to randomly see” the news about the report, Felicia Arculeo (whose son Cpl. Robert Hendriks died in the April 8, 2019, attack) said.

“I got pretty upset.”

Her 25-year-old son, Hendriks, and the other two Marines, Sgt. Benjamin Hines, 31, and 43-year-old Staff Sgt. Christopher Slutman, were killed by a car bomb near Bagram Air Field. The three Marines, who had been assigned to the 25th Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division, died just days before they were scheduled to return home from Afghanistan.

Arculeo said that the possible link of the attack that killed her son to Russian bounties should continue to be probed despite the White House’s claim that the intelligence about the bounties is not verified.

1. Poor woman...

I would be demanding an investigation if it were my son.

2. If this were a Democratic President

Faux News would have had 10 crying women on TV within an hour of this story breaking.

Politics ain't beanbag.
