Special Ops Group Attacks Obama over Bin Laden Bragging, Leaks ^ | 14AUG12 | Not listed

Posted on 08/15/2012 10:49:40 AM PDT by bayouranger

A group of former U.S. intelligence and Special Forces operatives is set to launch a media campaign, including TV ads, that scolds President Barack Obama for taking credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden and arg u es that high-level leaks are endangering American lives. Leaders of the group, the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Inc, say it is nonpartisan and unconnected to any political party or presidential campaign. It is registered as a so-called social welfare group, which means its primary purpose is to further the common good and its political activities should be secondary.

In the past, military exploits have been turned against presidential candidates by outside groups, most famously the Swift Boat ads in 2004 that questioned Democratic nominee John Kerry's Vietnam War service.

The OPSEC group says it is not political and aims to save American lives. Its first public salvo is a 22-minute film that includes criticism of Obama and his administration. The film, to be released on Wednesday, was seen in advance by Reuters.

"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," Ben Smith, identified as a Navy SEAL, says in the film.

"As a citizen, it is my civic duty to tell the president to stop leaking information to the enemy," Smith continues. "It will get Americans killed."

An Obama campaign official said: "No one in this group is in a position to speak with any authority on these issues and on what impact these leaks might have, and it's clear they've resorted to making things up for purely political reasons."

Very clever. Put Obama into the middle of a controversery with the brave special ops men.

I always wondered why everyone bent over backwards to give this guy credit for such a “gutsy” decision. What was his alternative? He only had to say “yes” or “no”. He picked the right one - big deal.

WOW. Outstanding video. I really, REALLY! hope they blanket the airwaves with this message in the next few months. Excellent job!

Let the Dems try to convince a majority in this country that Obama is being “swift boated”. It will not work!!

I’ve been looking for PACs that I can contribute to and make a difference. This looks like a winner.

If any of the obama phonies should be (falsely) claiming credit for the killing, it should be Valerie Jarrett, who, apparently gave obama permission to okay the plan after refusing him three times.

Obama didn’t kill Bin Laden. Someone else made that happen!

I remember there were some Freepers scolding the rest of us cautiously cynical types for not wetting our pants with glee in praise for Obama.

If The Obamanation is such a natural born killing machine... why was he shoveling pacifist sh!t instead of serving in the armed forces during the Gulf War?
