Dishonorable Disclosures - Special Ops and Intelligence Forces Blast Obama for Leaks and Political Exploitation of Military



OPSEC, which includes former Navy Seals and Special Ops forces, has unveiled a video blasting President Barack Obama for leaks of classified information and exploiting military action for political gain.

From OPSEC:
Intelligence and Special Operation forces are furious and frustrated at how President Obama and those in positions of authority have exploited their service for political advantage.  Countless leaks, interviews and decisions by the Obama Administration and other government officials have undermined the success of our Intelligence and Special Operations forces and put future missions and personnel at risk.
The unwarranted and dangerous public disclosure of Special Forces Operations is so serious - that for the first time ever - former operators have agreed to risk their reputations and go 'on the record' in a special documentary titled "Dishonorable Disclosures."  Its goal is to educate America about serious breaches of security and prevent them from ever happening again.

Go figure, the mutt is a total failure! Treason wouldn't be too far off.

Look deeper. The goal in reality is politics. The leaders of this group are trying to support Romney by blasting Obama. The leader has admitted to being a birther. They're trying to do the same thing to Obama that others supporting Bush did to Kerry, making light of his service during Vietnam, and other Bush supporters did to McCain in the 2000 election. Interesting that this group that is trying to support transparency is set up in a way that the members can't be identified, the donors can't be identified, and we have no way of knowing who's REALLY paying for these ads. Obama doesn't claim to have personally gotten Bin Laden, but he DID personally authorize the mission. If the mission had gone wrong, the Republicans (including this OPSEC group) would have blamed Obama. And if Bush had been president and authorized the mission, they'd have given him full credit.

Vice President Cheney revealed the name of an undercover CIA operative. His top aide was sentenced to jail time as a result of the investigation, before President Bush commuted the sentence. Where was the outrage.

President Bush used an aircraft carrier to declare "mission accomplished" when the war was far from over. Mitt Romney used a battleship as the backdrop for the vice presidential announcement.

President Obama gave full credit to the military for the success of the operation that killed bin Laden. The president ordered the mission when a number of his advisers urged that it was too risky. If the mission had failed, it would have been on his shoulders.

President Obama did what Bush could not, he got bin Laden. That drives Republicans crazy.

Plus the Admiral who was overall commander of the operation gave Obama credit.

I will say though that although Bush got too much credit for a lot of things, to be fair he and his people weren't responsible for the banner. The "Mission Accomplished" referred to the carrier returning home after its deployment, congratulating the crew for accomplishing THEIR mission. It wasn't meant to imply that Iraq was over. Of course, there was also the hype about him flying out to the carrier and the implication that he landed on the carrier. The truth is he flew out to the carrier in the copilot seat, and did NOT land the plane. They probably let him fly straight and level on the way out to the carrier.

I also agree with Bush both in commutting Libby's sentence, and in his refusal to give Libby a pardon (that pissed Cheney off!). I think it was fair because Libby was the only one punished, when we all know the decision to out the CIA operative was made at a higher level than Libby -- I think Cheney personally made that decision.

Cheney's heart transplant must have been pretty easy for the doc -- normally you have to take an old heart out to put the new one in. In this case there wasn't one.

HERE COME THE SWIFT BOATS AGAIN. ANYONE WHO BELIEVES THIS CRAP SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO VOTE AS THEY ARE MENTALLY ILL.

You would think a man with a military background would have a little more respect for the Commander-in-Chief. As far as I'm concerned this fellow seems to have a "hatred" issue and is being used a pawn in somebody else's chess game. In other words, the man is a f'n tool.
