Father Of Late SEAL Speaks Out About Suing Obama, Biden

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

The father of a Navy SEAL from Philadelphia discusses why he's suing the president of the United States.

Mayfair native Michael Strange was one of 38 people killed when a Navy Chinook helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan in August 2011.

Michael's father and some other families have filed a lawsuit against President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

Strange says they made his son, a SEAL Team Six Special Forces serviceman, a target.

"How'd they know 10 days after killing bin Laden that it was SEAL Team Six? It was our government. Our government did that, put a tag on my son's back. They marked him," Strange said. "My son never had a chance to get married. So, I want some answers."

Strange says his main goal is to convince Congress to launch an investigation.
