Obama's Navy SEAL Critics Are Failing Miserably
The Atlantic Wire ^ | 22 Aug 2012 | JOHN HUDSON

Posted on 08/23/2012 6:13:52 AM PDT by Toadman

...the veterans' partisan excesses and absurd public remarks are turning them into a laughingstock within the special forces community.

This article is a blatant lie. I keep in daily contact with active duty SOF. Not scientific, but I'd have to say that the ratio is AT LEAST 10:1 are in agreement with OPSEC and are glad the retired guys have their backs.

I tried to comment on the site to point out their propaganda, but couldn't post. Don't know if it's intentional or if it's a compatibility issue with my browser.

Our active duty folks need a voice, and the Bambies surrogates are now in the process of character assassination.

Hold a guy down while he’s doing all the dangerous work and you’re blabbing to all the enemies exactly how they can kill him, and then beat him up in front of everybody with orders that he has to smile and take it in the shorts because he’s required to “respect” you.

Real classy piece of crap we have occupying our White House right now.

He’s a foreign enemy combatant - a conclusion warranted by the fact that the Hawaii registrar recently confirmed that his Hawaii birth record is not legally valid.

He let Lt. Col Lakin go to jail for 6 months and lose his military career because he, Obama, knew darn well that he HAS NO LEGALLY VALID DOCUMENTATION that he could have presented to Lakin, to prove that his orders were lawfully given in accordance with the 20th Amendment, the War Powers Act, and the Authorization to Use Force. IOW, Obama KNOWS that his orders are unlawful, and his giving them anyway is treason against the United States and the US Constitution.

His trashing of America, America’s interests, and America’s allies is all part of the plan.

His trashing of these fine men is just because he’s the lowest scum to ever slither the face of the earth. Likeable? Only if you like miserable vomitous masses.

Who did he interview? The new dyke desk-jockey "Major General"? Obama's progressive appointees? What a joke, except it isn't funny. Romney must win, and then purge the military from head-to-toe of all Obama Drones.

Only a rabid liberal would look at it this way. There's nothing partisan or absurd about the truth.
We have an anti-American in the White House. The massive damage he's done to this country couldn't have been done by accident.

The article mentions Special Forces Major Lujan, whom I know through a former Delta operator and good friend. Lujan was personally picked to work within the House Foreign Affairs Committee under Representative Howard Berman (D-CA), and is a Harvard graduate and ultra-liberal Democrat despite his impeccable military credentials.

If they're such miserable failures the best policy for Osama Obama and his Poliburo would be to ignore them.The fact that the Politburo feels the need to openly *label* them as failures proves that they're anything but.

—Swift Boaters, version 2012?—

That’s my take. And they will probably be just as effective. I play a game called “Command and Conquer”. The computer will attack your base in various wave styles, with breaks in between. Some are huge and designed to end the game. They require ridiculous amounts of coordination and bouncing from site to site to make sure your guys are defending that particular front.

Obama is going to be seeing that AFTER the convention. He - and his handlers - are so outclassed and over their heads on this it is going to be historic.

I repeat my prediction that I do not think the amateur will finish his term, probably due to personal meltdown, possibly in public.

They want to paint them as “dummies” because the leader of one of the groups said he’s a “birther”. And they desperately want to hide the fact that HI registrar Alvin Onaka confirmed that Obama’s HI record is legally non-valid. There is not a soul in this country who can LEGALLY say that Obama is even old enough to be President because he has no legally-established birth facts. At least not based on a Hawaii birth certificate. If he’s got legally-established birth facts they were established by some country BESIDES America - in which case he is known to not be a natural born US citizen as required by the Constitution.

And that issue is absolutely core for the media to try to undermine, because it is actually the reason why Obama couldn’t wait until the actionable intel from Bin Laden’s assassination was exploited, before telling the whole world what happened. Obama desperately needed a diversion because the now-legally-acknowledged FACT of the White House longform forgery was being noticed and documented.

The guy is a foreign enemy combatant, and in order to hide that fact he had to compromise all our intelligence efforts and the war on terror. That’s why the Founders wouldn’t allow foreigners to be President. That’s why the 20th Amendment says that even if somebody has been elected, certified as the winner, etc - if they FAIL TO QUALIFY by the start of the term they were elected to, they CANNOT ACT AS PRESIDENT. He’s 3 1/2 years into his term and CANNOT even legally qualify as old enough because he has no documentation to prove that he’s old enough to do ANYTHING - drive, buy liquor, register for the draft (which he never did...)..... anything that is restricted by age.

Whoever this “John Hudson” is, he’s obviously either ignorant of the facts, too stupid to comprehend what they mean, or too evil to speak the truth.

Its called “creating the narrative” - the leftist media do it all the time.

90% of Americans know little of the details of the case, and you can’t prove “respect” or opinions anyway - so if “Atlantic” tells them the Navy Seals are supposedly a laughing-stock, then its few readers might believe it.

The term ‘swiftboating’ (like “McCarthyism’) has been used by tthe libtards to mean an unfair persecution of the innocent, when in fact it is the ACCURATE portrayal of the guilty.

In both cases: McCarthy was proven to be right about the communists, and John Effin Kerry WAS a coward who ran from a gunfight in a War zone dumping his men into the water to be rescued by someone else. He was declared “unfit to command” and sent home after something like a month in Viet Nam.

It is a lie. Their tactic is to undermine the whole concept to make their message ineffective.

My only observation is that their team needs to heed the same advice as Akin, and other past candidates like Angle in NV. They need to stay on a very tight message. The one guy going on about birth certificates and such undermines their main message and gives people like The Atlantic and Obama something to hit back with. These guys need to tighten up and hammer 2-3 points over and over. No deviation.

Total bullsh*t. This is the left’s way of not appearing to dislike the military and the SEALs. They tell a lie saying their own community does not agree with them.

Perhaps military personnel aren’t supposed to be disrespectful to their commander and chief, and perhaps some of these individuals got off their main point by bringing up issues related to Obama’s background.

The author mentioned those things but didn’t dispute their basic message.

Just wait ‘til I get started! lol

There is way more to be said than most people have the patience to hear.

Suffice to say that these retired Special Ops guys are dead right.

And everybody in DC knows it. Lawrence Sellin told Mark Gillar about one of the R Pres candidates who, when asked why nobody was addressing Obama’s eligibility, said that it goes deeper than anybody knows. They all know this guy is a foreign enemy combatant. Unfortunately, there’s something he’s holding over their heads to keep them hostage from doing anything about it. That’s the “deeper than anybody knows” part, and that’s what America really needs to be afraid of.

I would bet that on a list of most respected people and entities in the USA the Navy SEALs would be a solid Number 1.

Only an arrogant fool would try to do a Kerry style "reverse Swiftboat" on the SEALs to discredit them for telling the truth about Obama and Osama.

Come to think of it, this attack on the SEALs isn't working any better than the attack on the original Swift Boat group who told the truth about Kerry, is it?

I do believe the backlash from the Obama suporters attack on the SEALs will will actually do more damage to Obama because of the huge respect the nation holds for the SEALs.
