Posted on 08/17/2012 12:32:45 PM PDT by lward99
Yesterday, Fox News The Five ran a segment on the military members who are taking action against President Barack Obama and his administration for their deliberate, continuing national-security leaks that are endangering the lives of the military men and women who serve and protect the United States of America. In that segment, liberal smear artist Bob Beckel defended the Obama White Houses intentional release of highly sensitive and highly classified security information:
"The idea to suggest that the President of the United States would leak intelligence information, jeopardizing people in the field is close to treason," Beckel said. If I were them I assume they are out of the military now they ought to take their benefits and go home.
As honorably discharged and retired veterans of the Special Operations communities of all the Armed Forces and their supporters, whose mission in forming Special Operations Speaks is to illuminate the failed operational security environment of the current presidential administration, we find Bob Beckels commentary slanderous, insulting and appalling.

A seal vs Wimpoid Beckel.
This’ll be extremely short, but v good.
Where I can I purchase tickets?
Beckel may break a few bones “stepping off a curb” and I’m going to laugh my ass off!
To Bob Beckel mere free speech is "close to treason" ? Is he a North Korean citizen?
When will Fox fire Beckel? Useless piece of trash - never watch the Five or Hannity when Beckel is on. What is Foxes’ purpose with this mindless, stupid jerk? Juan is another one.
So, Beckel said that to suggest 0bama is a traitor is “treason”?
Hmmm... sounds like we have a “king”, not a president.
“Where I can I purchase tickets?”
Beckel - that pusse should just keep his mouth full of jelly donuts instead of swallowing and coming up for air. I never saw this guy a lot until I started to watch the five (right around getting home from work) and I like the show, especially the girls...but that gooey Pillsbury dough boy, Beckel is just another pastry faced lib...a walking vomitorium of liberal fantasies and tough guy posturing that makes me ill. Reminds me of Olberwoman.
That would be correct Bob, just like conspiring with the Russians and intentionally damaging our military and economy.
I wish he would stuff some more fudge brownies in his mouth.
Bob Beckel once opened a can with a manual opener instead of an electric one....so he knows character.
I think Beckel is confusing “blasphemy against his idol” with treason, a charge that he, like most liberals, do not understand.
(”The idea to suggest that the President of the United States would leak intelligence information, jeopardizing people in the field is close to treason,” Beckel said.)
The idea that Obama would seems pretty justifiable. Just ask Brian Terry’s family.......... information weapons whatever its all the same when it cost American lives for politics.
I hope Beckel reads this. It's as close to normal testosterone as he'll ever get.
It’s time for someone to put a true conservative cable product together and watch what happens to the Fox News ratings.
FOX is no better than he is; they employ the POS to stir up consternation, like it had appeal. I don’t watch any of them any longer. To hell with TV; it’s no longer entertaining.
Don’t forget that Beckel is a veteran of the Gin-Vodka wars.
Sounds like a good idea to raise money for Wounded Warriors. I’ll run the popcorn concession. Free bag for every tooth Hecklin’ Beckel loses!
Heck, the fight would be over before it started, Beckle would probably keel over from a coronary if the walk from his car to the fighting ring was more than a hundred feet.
SEAL in > 20secs.
There’s a fine nuance here, Beckel thinks its treason to speak against the president. In Nazi Germany they swore allegiance to Adolph Hitler. We don’t. No American soldier has any legal obligation whatsoever, to remain silent when he has knowledge of his superiors committing crimes. This includes the president.
SEAL? It wouldn’t take a SEAL to pulverize Bob. I’m a 52 year old overweight former intelligence analyst with edema, heart problems, diabetes and a raft of other issues, but I could swat Beckel like a bug. Let our SEALS do the heavy work, I’ll take care of the journalists.
I can't stand staged political discussions either.
I don’t think the left has achieved that level of confidence yet to try something that would make the military make that choice.
Another 4 yrs of this guy... maybe.
These SOS guys are great... it’s long overdue to have someone challenging Mr. Beckel. I think Eric Bolling is the most frequent member of the Five who fails to challenge Beckel’s serial misstatements. I think Bolling should hire an intern just to fact-check (in real time) Beckel’s absurd assertions so that they can be knocked down throughout the show.
Watching Beckel makes me wonder how Walter Mondale carried Minnesota in 1984.
Any suggestion of ANYTHING regarding Barack Hussein Obama is absolutely UNTHINKABLE, not to mention RACIST and TREASON, to these people. After all, Obama’s administration is SO transparent.
"Americans should never have to wonder if their loved one died to get someone elected."
"Americans should never have to wonder if her service members have killed to get someone elected."
"The American military is above politics and each member swears an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States - not a political party, not a politician."
"The decisions involved in committing American Military Forces to combat are so grave, and the consequences life altering, that no one can ever doubt the motivation behind those decisions."
"It is beneath the Presidency for Mr. Obama to allow his political operatives to campaign on this rhetoric. For him to allow this demeans the office, demeans the man, and it demeans the integrity of the nation. This type of campaign rhetoric puts all of our military at greater risk for a cheap political point. Mr. Obama may believe that his reelection is of vital national interest, but try to explain that to the families of those 803 service members who have died in Afghanistan since January 20th of 2009. The raid to kill Osama bin Laden was fortunate enough to not have suffered any friendly casualties, but if he is willing to take individual personal credit for this action is he willing to take the personal blame for the deaths of our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who died faithfully executing his orders in Afghanistan?"
Its time for someone to put a true conservative cable product together and watch what happens to the Fox News ratings.
Drives me insane that this is all we have on TV.
Totally agree with you. Fox can’t call these morons fair and balanced. We’re weaning ourselves off of Faux news.
I think Bob Beckel represents the liberal cause very well - he never has facts, talks over anyone making a REAL point, reflexively defends the liberal cause even when he knows it's wrong, loves to hear himself talk, has no respect for any other opinions, couldn't find his own rear-end with two hands AND a map, is rude and obnoxious.
He is the perfect liberal! Fox is doing a public service in juxtaposing him with 4 people who have brains and manners!
“we find Bob Beckels commentary slanderous, insulting and appalling.”
So do we which is why we don’t watch The Five.
He couldn't carry the jock of a single Seal Team member and I mentioned that in the letter I sent FOX News.
If I recalll correctly, Bob Bechtel also wrote letters to all the electors asking them to cast their electoral vote for Al Gore over George W. Bush! I don’t know if that was before or after he gave up drinking.

PERFECT EXPLANATION of a liberal! The other four on the Five should get extra pay for having to be near Beckel. But what’s Hannity’s excuse - he seems to LOVE him.
never watch the Five or Hannity when Beckel is on.
I never watch F&F when geraldo is on
Good for them!
Theres a fine nuance here, Beckel thinks its treason to speak against the president.
The nuance isn’t that fine. The oath ALL take is to protect and defend the Constitution. No loyalty, no obeisance, is owed to the president of the U. S. And treason hasn’t been charged often enough against certain members of that particular portion of the population.
Another agreement. The operative word in all this is “morons.” Some have departed (I hope, with prejudice)—like Margaret Hoover; but far too many are left (no pun). They completely miss the point of the so-called fair & balanced mantra: Sure, expose the ideas, good and bad. Then have the courage and intelligence to argue on behalf of the good. Since when does fairness compel that evil or wrong get equal time?
It's true. No Service Man (or government employee, or any other citizen) is obliged to obey an order not "deemed lawful."
Ditto for me.
Can’t stand either Bob or Juan .. or most of the hyper-ventilating radical dems that appear on FOX. I call them “arrogantly ignorant”.
Bob’s comment (10 years after 2000), that “Bush stole the election” did it for me.
I sent FOX an email and ranted and raved about what the truth was regarding the 2000 election .. explaining that one year after the election, several liberal media pooled their money and went down to FL to do a recount (all legally allowed under election laws). I’m sure their goal was to prove Bush had not really won the election. What happened is that the libs found out that not only had Bush won the election .. he had really won it by more than 1500 votes, not 537. And .. in 2004 he won it by more than 4 million.
Of course, the lefty media placed the story at the bottom part of the fold - buried in a weird section of the NYT. To make sure nobody saw it .. so they could continue to hit Bush as illigitimate.
Funny thing .. Bob quit saying it for awhile .. but I heard him say it again recently. Which proves to me that Bob only said it because he believes the public is too stupid to know the correct answer.
As for Juan .. FOX created a monster when they supported him after he was fired from NPR. Juan has such a big head now, he thinks whatever he says is the most important thing .. and he yells over everybody with his ignorant statements.
I would love to see Bob and Juan removed from the 5 - but I know that’s never going to happen. So .. I just don’t watch it.
What people probably don’t understand is that Bob is a political hack and he will defend the dems no matter what they do - good or bad, wrong or right. Bob is a sheep.
I’ve been praying for that for years.
What a relief that would be not to have to listen to the “nattering nabobs” all the time.
But .. NONE OF THE PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THIS NEW ENDEAVOR ARE CURRENTLY IN THE MILITARY.
Obama is no longer their Commander - so they have the right to say what they think.
In the video, Bill Cowen (one of my favorites) made this comment. “My advice to this administration is, Shut the F*** Up!”
You can find the video at PowerLine.
None of the military are CURRENT - all RETIRED.
It’s so simple: It’s idealogy - that’s the whole answer.
That’s the primary reason the left loves the dictators of the world .. because they’re jealous that it isn’t them.
Sadly, Obama has the same idealogy - he fancies himself as KING; which well explains the “hit list” the president keeps of those he wants to get rid of.
Once people understand it’s about idealogy .. they seem to realize it answers all the questions of why the left does what it does.
I agree .. and I’m especially unhappy with Hannity lately. Twice now he has brought on Ann Coulter and then had Peter Johnson Jr (jealous little man) and pitted them against each other. Peter is so rude to her and Hannity does nothing. The 2nd time Hannity did it - Ann told him to take a hike and she would never be on his show again. She finally relented - but only because Hannity had her on by herself.
The other incident happened just a few days ago. Dinesh was on to promote his movie “2016”. A squishy dem, Shoen, was on with him. Untrue to Shoen’s usual comments, he was simply outrageous .. ranting and raving and not allowing Dinesh to get a word in edgewise. I was so angry.
I have calmed down now, and plan to send Hannity a msg telling him how appalling that episide was. He needs to have Dinesh back on, by himself, and show us clips from the film.
Remember, if you just don’t watch - they don’t care as much as they do when you actively complain with specifics.
OK, mine was a general comment regarding my belief that King Obie and his attitude that the military belongs to him.
Yes, I knew that .. but these men no longer “belong to him” .. that was my point. People who are upset don’t seem to realize that these men are not under Obama any longer - because they’re retired.
For Beckel or anybody else to get upset about it is useless .. these guys are no longer under the power of the “king”.
