The father of slain Navy SEAL Aaron Vaughn, possibly one of the members of the elite SEAL team which killed Osama bin Laden, prominently, and seemingly purposefully displayed a “Molon Labe” forearm tattoo furing a nationally televised interview with Fox News (see in the video above).

The Vaughns, and other family of service members whose plane was shot down in Afghanistan resulting in their deaths, allege that excessive promotion of the fact that the SEALs were the ones who killed bin Laden along with inappropriate rules of engagement made their son a target and a sitting duck following the bin Laden mission.

Here is a screenshot from the freely embedable video of the tattoo that Mr. Vaughn made sure was prominently displayed in the interview.

The phrase molon labe (Ancient Greek μολὼν λαβέ molṑn labé; means “Come and take”. It is a classical expression of defiance reportedly spoken by King Leonidas I in response to the Persian army’s demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae. (Wikipedia)
