Video: Former Navy SEALs Launch Attack Ad on President Obama
A group called OPSEC, made up of ex U.S. Navy SEALs, Special Forces and CIA operatives, has created a video attack against President Obama, reports the Daily Mail.
In the opening of their 22-minute video (below), Ben Smith, a former Navy SEAL, says: "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. As a citizen, it is my civic duty to tell the president to stop leaking information to the enemy. It will get Americans killed."
However, President Obama has never claimed that he killed Osama Bin Laden and gave immense credit to the Navy SEAL team that did.
Scott Taylor, chairman of OPSEC, told Reuters: "We want the American people to understand the cost of these leaks and politicization both on those who serve and on our national security and to hold those in positions of leadership accountable if it doesn’t stop."
Taylor failed to win the Republican nomination for a congressional seat in Virginia in 2010.
Fred Rustmann, a former CIA operative, said the Obama administration has been leaking "to help this guy get re-elected, at the expense of peoples' lives."
However, neither Taylor or Rustmann named any specific leaks or present any proof of people dying.
Untouched by the OPSEC video attack is Admiral William McRaven, who oversaw the Bin Laden raid and gave President Obama credit.
The Daily Mail quotes Admiral McRaven as saying: "At the end of the day, make no mistake about it, it was the president of the United States that shouldered the burden for this operation, that made the hard decisions, that was instrumental in the planning process, because I pitched every plan to him."
