Obama Attacks Navy Seals
The Patriot Update ^ | August 17, 2012 | Patriot

Posted on 08/18/2012 12:32:46 PM PDT by CaptainKrunch

Politically speaking, Navy SEALs aren’t the safest targets to rail against in a presidential race, but the Obama campaign isn’t hesitating to take down a group of former SEALs who’ve criticized the president’s national security decisions.

On Thursday morning, campaign officials waged a full court press against the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, a group of former U.S. Special Forces and intelligence officials accusing President Obama of leaking vital national security secrets and taking too much credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden. When the group launched its anti-Obama media campaign Wednesday, consisting of TV ads and a 22-minute film, it wasn’t clear if Obama officials would avoid a potentially messy confrontation or refute the military veterans publicly. But now the campaign has made clear it views the attacks in the same light as the 2004 John Kerry “Swift Boat” attack ads, which, however misleading, were painfully effective.

“The Republicans are resorting to ‘Swift Boat’ tactics because when it comes to foreign policy and national security, Mitt Romney has offered nothing but reckless rhetoric,” Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt told Reuters’ Mark Hosenball last night. Taking a direct shot at the leaders of OPSEC, an Obama campaign official lambasted the group’s accusations about national security leaks this morning. “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,” said the official, speaking on background, “and it’s clear they’ve resorted to making things up for purely political reasons.”

I made contributions to the swift boat veterans that took down Lurch back in 2004.  Thank you for you service swift boat vets!

Just a month ago O'crapy was proclaiming himself to be a hero to the American public for making the "ballsy" decision to send the SEAL team in to risk their lives to kill bin laden, and now O'crapy is attacking the very same American patriots who not only made him look good by killing bin laden, but also got the embarassing birth certificate issue off the front pages for him.  Remember that?  The birth certificate issue was front and center across the entire nation, then suddently bin laden is dead within the same week and everyone forgot about his birth certificate.

What was misleading about the Swift Boat stories? They were effective because they were the trutn.

This probably also infuriates Obama because he was counting on the “trailers” for the upcoming movie about how “he” took out Bin Ladin to be airing around election time and show the world what a hero he is. This documentary may complicate his victory march just a little!

It is only a matter of time before speculation that those members of Seal Team 6 who were shot down shortly after Obama blabbing about things that SHOULD have been confidential might be alive today if it weren’t for White House leaks. Sad when our own President is an Enemy of the State.

For 16 years, Barack Obama represented in public that he was born in Kenya:

Despite 16 years of portraying himself as "born in Kenya," in December 2010, Obama, as Commander In Chief of the US Military, allowed a decorated war veteran and Army Flight surgeon, Terry Lakin, to be wrongfully court-martialed while being denied the right of discovery. Lakin was unjustly punished with six months in prison, forfeiture of all pay and allowances and dishonorable discharge from the US Army for questioning Obama's questionable eligibility as President and, consequently, Obama's authority to give lawful orders to the military.

 

True Americans need to get busy and evict this usurper.
He is ineligible under the Constitution and Congress knows it.
We should not suffer having him on the ballot, let alone in the White House.

Some one please tell me who in the Ostupid administration is qualified to say what the consequences for the security leaks will be. How many in the service of the stupidest person in history to ever be elected, actually served honorably in the military services of the United States? Probably just like their bosses IQ, ZERO. Who is in a better position to tell us what the consequences will be; those who serve in the field and see the results of the leaks, or some loud mouthed Chicago street thug who has never served any one but himself.
F##K that pig Obama and every traitor in his administration.
If it were up to me we would have a lot of rope and be looking for convenient lamp posts in the public square.

And now both the SEALs and the birth certificate will come around to bite him in the butt - because HI registrar Alvin Onaka issued a verification to AZ SOS Ken Bennett confirming that Obama’s Hawaii birth certificate is not legally valid and the White House’s posted long-form is not a “true and accurate representation” of the original record on file.

Obama couldn’t wait days or weeks for the captured intel to be exploited before telling the whole world about the Bin Laden assassination, because the world was noticing that the long-form he called genuine at a White House press conference was just a very bad fake. Now that fact has been confirmed by Alvin Onaka.

And the reason for it to be faked has also been confirmed by Alvin Onaka: because the record Hawaii has is not legally valid; it has stamps on it indicating that it is not legally valid - most likely because it is LATE and ALTERED.

Obama tried to buy himself more time by sacrificing all the work (and ultimately also the lives) of SEAL Team 6. He wasn’t afraid of showing himself to be a self-centered, egomaniacal dolt who would sacrifice national security for his own popularity... because the alternative was that the evidence itself would show him to be even worse: a foreign enemy combatant who is out to destroy - from within our own White House - this country and the military he illegally commands.

I would prefer an above board, open, absolutely legal, every letter of the law
perfectly addressed military tribunal and its attendant consequences.

It makes for an unassailable mark in the annals of history
and a more lasting impression on would-be tyrants.

I’m glad I saw your reply, because I was going to write the same thing: “They were effective, because they were the truth.” Absolutely!!

butterdezillion, please elaborate on this assertion.

"Good list."

Thanks for your support. How people can fail to be roused by the info in just those few facts is beyond me. And the mountain of evidence which Congress continues ot ignore has become overwhelming.

I fear our Republic may not survive the precedent resulting from this attack on the Constitution if we do not collectively demand justice and establish safeguards to uphold the "natural born Citizen" provision of Article II, Section 1.

Our elected officials have neglected their oath to the Constitution. Our gov't should be responsible for certification of all candidates BEFORE their names appear on any ballot. Instead, they foist that national security task off on the biased political parties who are nominating their candidates.

It is worse than negligence.

Well, he ain't very consistent.

Part of your "h" key is busted; better replace it.
