Just a headline right now. Do the Seals have to meet with 0? I would try to avoid it.
He sure is doing the photo opt tour! Seems like a lot of spiking the football going on..........
Watch for the leaked picture with their faces over AlJazeera within a week.
Maybe the SEALS will punch the tricky Moslem in the face.
Uhh.. sorry, Skipper. I feel a toothache coming on.
Hope he doesn’t spit in their faces or call them “Cheney’s executive assassination ring”........
That was the official story.
Behind the scene, teh WON is making sure they collaborate his version.
If I were the CO, I’d hire actors and give them uniforms.
They did a great job so far keeping these men anonymous, keeping them (and their families) safe from reprisals. Leave it to Obama to blow their cover and put their lives in danger just for his photo op.
Maybe O can ask them what really happened so he keep his story straight.
VICTORY LAP = “SPIKING THE FOOTBALL”
I dispise his guts. He didn’t do anything but oppose the very policies that killed Osama!
Remarkably, he can have all kinds of secret meetings with CIA, but he he can’t meet with the SEALs without announcing it to the world?
I can’t believe they’re telling everyone where the president as well as the seals will be. This is not something you blare out.
Heavenly Father, please keep these good men and their families safe from harm, since their CIC has no interest in doing so.
Didn’t know the SEALS hung out at Fort Campbell, although SOAR is there.
Sir, We do not have time right now to meet you but you can meet our founder Rich...
I think it is deliberate and goes back to the killing of the Somali pirates. I think he hates them; they are everything he is not.
It would be fitting if all of them just happened to be sick ... but they are guided by integrity and a commitment to their oath, so they will grit their teeth and smile, and hope that they don’t barf while Chairman O takes all the creidt.
That’s what I was thinking too.
Or a case of "The Bends". Need some time in the Chamber, Skip!
I wouldn’t doubt he’d slap cuffs on them as this whole mission is turning into his nightmare.
I Will be surprised if a photo comes out of this. But I can say, it won’t. It all comes down to the officers to tell this kenyan klown that no pics will ever come out because our Seals know for damn sure, Odumbo is just using them.
This is the most appalling thing I have ever heard, disclosing the location and even mentioning the reason!!!
I am furious at this bozo.
If you think the SEALS would avoid meeting or spit in the CIC’s face you have never served in the military. They may despise him but that would never happen in a million years. I met Clinton when I was in. Even shook his hand. Couldn’t stand him or his politics but you take an oath and that is the most senior person in your chain of command.
Send the 3d Messkit Repair Platoon (ABN).
SEALS in Kentucky?
What happened to old RVN era rule. No Salt Water (brackish water will do); No Squids.
I wonder if any of the three that he wanted to prosecute for allegedly giving a terrorist a fat lip will be among them. wouldn’t that be ironic.
Well, he is running for re-election. I’m pretty sure that’s his only motivation.
This had BETTER not be a Photo Op! Those Seals need to receive their medals in private, in a secure facility, with no pictures allowed. If Obama jeopardizes their safety for a little bit of PR there is gonna be hell to pay.
Betcha the SEAL team will be disarmed before Obama meets with them (I read somewhere that was the case when Obama went to Afghanistan).
I have a feeling Rich would want to meet him in that fashion.
Though he’d probably bring out his best Ev Barrett to meet him...
I haven’t taken that oath myself, but last I remember it’s to the Constitution, not the President.
“Maybe the SEALS will punch the tricky Moslem in the face.”
Let’s see, a Navy Seal punching their Commander in Chief (whether you like it or not) in the face. How old are you, 5?
Exactly. And, when he asks which one of them whacked OBL, I hope that one by one they step forward and declare "I am Spartacus!"
My first thought too.
I thought the whole purpose of Special OPs, was we just know they exist. PERIOD. It is not a need to know WHO, WHEN, WHERE, OR WHY.
Pray for these guys and gals doing their jobs, all the while their COMMANDER IN CHEIF, PRESIDENT OBAMA is trying to get them killed.
At this rate I’m rooting for Kate Middleton to announce she is pregnant or something really anything to make Opatmyselfontheback go away for a while.
“which one of them whacked OBL,”
“Sgt Peterson sir but he couldn’t be here. He has a bone in his leg”
“How old are you, 5?”
No, I’ll be 5 next month. Thus, I am 4.
I didn’t mean the post literally, I was just thinking out loud.
Spike that ball baby!!!
HA! I would certainly pay to see that!
How does this do anything but to set up as targets the base and those who would meet him ?
I wonder if this might be where he shows them his real colors and tells them he’s going to throw them under the bus.
Or maybe he can tell them how grateful he is for himself that he made that “gutsy call.”
And can we please keep BIDEN away from these SEALs and their commanders? He’s dumb enough to put a picture of the team up on twitter. Can’t you just see it... “big effin deal - seal team badasses #looselips #plugsdiditagain”
“Why don’t they just paint a big RED TARGET on these guys backs.”
Are you forgetting that Omoslem is/was trying to prosecute SEALS for giving that terrorist a fat lip?
Why WOULDN’T Omoslem do everything possible to raise their profile and expose their identities? That way, it’s easier to gin up a case against them, if necessary, to score political points and rile up Michael Moore.
It must be that Super-Duper Top Secret Navy base on Lake Barkley, KY. Psst AP “Navy Bases are usually on coasts, like Atlantic, Pacific, Gulf or Great Lakes.”
You may not have taken it but you could have googled it.
“I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).
If this is an accurate headline....well, my head is about to explode.
Do I expect the President to award medals to the team, and shake their hands? Yes
Do I expect that we in the general public would know the who/what/when/where? Nope...not even after it happened.
OPSEC hasn’t been a strong suit of these guys lately...unless its a secret coffee shop meeting in DC.
And for goodness sake, keep Joe away from these guys...he’d run to a sketch artist.
