The family of the ill American woman rescued in a daring nighttime raid by a U.S. special operations team in the heart of Somalia today thanked her rescuers from the Navy SEALs on the ground all the way up to the White House.
“We are very grateful that Jessica has been rescued,” the family of 32-year-old Jessica Buchanan said in a statement. “This has been just an unbelievable answer to prayers and we are so grateful for the work of the President, the Navy SEALs and the State Department and we knew that God would set our sister free.”
“It is a great day to be an American. We are very proud and very thankful to SEAL Team 6,” Buchanan’s brother, Stephen, added.
