A group of former U.S. Navy SEALs, CIA operatives and Special Forces troops calling themselves OPSEC, which stands for Operational Security, have launched a campaign against our nation's president over his boasting that he killed Osama Bin Laden for his own political advancement and for leaking classified material. Tisk tisk, Barry O.
According to the Daily Mail:
'Intelligence and Special Operations members are angry and frustrated at how our work has been used for political advantage by officials across government, including President Obama himself who bears special responsibility as Commander in Chief,' Scott Taylor, chairman of OPSEC and a former SEAL, told Reuters.
'We want the American people to understand the cost of these leaks and politicization both on those who serve and on our national security and to hold those in positions of leadership accountable if it doesn’t stop.'
Leaders of the OPSEC insist it is nonpartisan and not connected to any presidential campaign or political party
Its opening attack on Obama is a 22-minute film. In it, Ben Smith, a former SEAL, says: 'Mr. President, you did not kill Osama bin Laden, America did. The work that the American military has done killed Osama bin Laden. You did not.
'As a citizen, it is my civic duty to tell the president to stop leaking information to the enemy. It will get Americans killed.'
Look, I don't want to wear my political affiliations on my sleeve, but I've been saying this for months and I'm glad someone is finally calling Obama out for playing the Osama card. Yeah, he died during your term but I doubt you had anything to do with finding him, surrounding him, or putting a beautiful flurry of bullets into his head. So stop hogging all the goddamn credit. Or any credit at all.
