"That's not a negative thing", he said. I mean, it's frightening. "I believe they all write".
The deaths of USA troops is an emotional issue for Kelly, a retired four-star general, whose son was killed by a roadside bomb while on patrol in Afghanistan in 2010.
"If you want to go after Gen. Kelly, that's up to you", Sanders said. "He knew what the possibilities were because we're at war".
"[Wilson] also had quite a few comments that day that weren't part of that speech and weren't part of that video that were also witnessed by many people that were there", Sanders said.

This is a bold claim and I'll need additional hands-on time with the laptop before I can say if that figure is accurate or not. Almost two years after introducing the Surface Book, Microsoft is adding a new member to the family, a 15in Surface Book 2 .
Kelly made the comments at the White House on Thursday while discussing President Trump's conversations with the families of four USA soldiers killed in an ambush in Niger earlier this month. The family of Army Sergeant Jonathon Hunter, who was killed in an August suicide bombing in Afghanistan, was told to expect a call from Trump. The attack happened in a remote corner of Niger where Americans and local counterparts had been meeting with community leaders.
Chalian was also stunned by Huckabee Sanders' suggestion that Kelly is "beyond reproach and should not be questioned for his own words simply because he was a 4-star general".
Wilson was present when Johnson's widow received a call from Trump, and she said that over a speakerphone, she heard him tell Myeshia Johnson that her husband "knew what he signed up for". La David Johnson "knew what he was getting into", when he joined the military. Johnson's aunt, who raised the soldier from a young age, said the family took that remark to be disrespectful.
She then asked all first responders to stand so they could receive applause. During her speech, Wilson said, "It is a miracle, to say the least, but it speaks to the respect that our Congress has for the Federal Bureau of Investigation". The congresswoman herself, asked by WSVN-TV in Florida about Kelly's remarks, replied only indirectly. "She said, 'The dog can bark at the moon all night long, but it doesn't become an issue until the moon barks back'". To drive home that criticism, Kelly drew on a speech he heard Wilson deliver at the FBI's dedication ceremony for a new Miami field office in 2015.
"I was stunned when I came to work yesterday morning and brokenhearted at what I saw a member of Congress doing - a member of Congress who listened in on a phone call from the president of the United States to a young wife and in his way tried to express that opinion that he's a courageous man, a fallen hero".
