Former special ops, cops and intel agents plan anti-Obama blitz

The Obama team has been accused of running the dirtiest, most
negative campaign in recent history, but starting today, according to
some former intelligence and police officers, the Obama campaign staff
may get a taste of their own medicine from men and women who have served
on the frontlines of the war on terrorism.

An organization that represents former U.S. intelligence, military
and law enforcement special operatives is planning a TV and radio media
blitz beginning today that blasts President Barack Obama for his
boasting and taking credit for the Navy SEALs mission that killed Osama bin Laden.

In addition, the campaign is going to allege that high-level leaks, suspected of emanating from the Obama White House, have placed the lives of soldiers, intelligence agents and law enforcement officers assigned overseas in jeopardy.

What many intelligence, military and law enforcement officials
believe is an out-and-out scandal and one of the most important issues
facing this nation -- the intentional leaking of classified intelligence for political purposes -- received short shrift by members of the news media.

For example, officials from the organization
Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, Inc., who say they are
nonpartisan and independent of any political party or candidate, said
that their group is registered as a social group and not a political
action committee nor are they affiliated with any political parties or

OPSEC officials say its goals are not political but aimed at saving the lives of America's protectors.

"You, sir, are trying to take the credit for what the American People
have achieved in killing Bin Laden. Your use of the SEALs
accomplishment as a campaign slogan is nothing less than despicable. I,
as a former Navy SEAL do not accept your taking credit for Osama Bin
Laden's death. The American military accomplished that feat,"
U.S. Navy SEAL team member Benjamin Smith said in an email.

Police officers and commanders are being represented by groups such
as the Law Enforcement Alliance of America, a group that's heavily
critical of the Obama administration's actions especially when it comes
to stealth gun control and illegal alien deportation maneuvering such as
the Fast and Furious debacle that left two American law enforcement agents dead.

"I don't know whether to yell or cry. The news media are more interested in protecting Obama and
his minions than getting at the truth. The American people don't seem
to care if their government violated any laws, either. This is a federal
government out of control and the people who are trying to get to the
bottom of this political cesspool are portrayed as the bad guys
attacking a 'sainted' president's administration,"
said former New
Jersey police detective, now a corporate security director, Peter Rosen.

In response to the leaks, U.S. Rep. Peter King wrote a memorandum to Robert Mueller,
director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, requesting that the
FBI special agents already investigating security leaks add other
reports to their probe.

“These reported disclosures
represent additional disturbing and irresponsible leaks of potentially
classified information from this Administration,” King stated in his
letter to Mueller. “Obviously, the ongoing investigations have failed to
deter further leaks."

King stated on Fox News: “The only thing I can think of this is an
attempt to rehabilitate the president going into an election year to
show that he’s a tough guy. The president deserves credit for killing
Osama bin Laden, but at that time they went beyond anything that had to
be disclosed. I think it’s to enhance his reputation and it’s done in an
irresponsible way.”

"This series of leaks -- going back to when the Navy SEALs killed the
world's number one terrorist leader, Osama bin Laden -- is by far more
serious than the media circus of the Valerie Plame-CIA incident that
forced the Bush administration to appoint a special prosecutor to
investigate the so-called outing of a [so-called]CIA officer,"
said former NYPD
police detective and military intelligence officer Sid Franes.

"And instead of outrage in the White House over
these security breaches, all we get is finger-pointing and accusations
about an alleged Republican witch hunt," said Franes.

Fred Rustmann,
a former undercover officer with the Central Intelligence Agency
reiterated that the focus on leaks was "not a partisan concern." He accuses the
Obama administration of leaking secrets "to help this guy get
re-elected, at the expense of peoples' lives.... We want to see that
they don't do this again."

"The sheer amount of leaked classified information about the
operations and methods used by the Navy SEALs who killed Osama bin Laden
is shocking and “abhorrent,”
retired CIA officer Frederick Rustman told

Rustman expressed shock over reports that the Obama administration may have shared classified information with a movie company making a film about the bin Laden mission.

    I don't blame them for being angry. He is the buffoon that cannot come up with an original idea of his own but takes credit for those around him.
  • Matt 2012/08/16 13:13:07
    I hate to defend anybody in our government but since nobody has named names yet, there is always that slight possibility that these agents are the ones who leaked the classified information.
  • Ken Matt 2012/08/16 17:32:56
    Not really - the nature of most of the information indicates that it almost certainly came from the White House. Further, the New York Times attributed its stories to "highly placed White House officials." IMHO, there isn't a chance in the world that an "Operator" would release information that could endanger his/her former comrades-in-arms.
  • Dar 2012/08/16 10:52:24
    More power to them....people should know and understand the damage resulting in Obama's ego.

    Mr Chin
    Because of the raid that Obama approved to kill Bin Laden the Pakistan government gave China a look at our helicopter. China (the people that the US owes a lot of money to0),. have many of our military secrets.
  • Ken Mr Chin 2012/08/16 03:57:07
    You are right about that.

    If any of the sponsors of these ads are active duty personnel, they could find themselves in boatload of trouble. It's my understanding that active military aren't allowed to diss the CIC.
  • Ken Transqu... 2012/08/15 23:50:58
    True, but it is my understanding the group are former special ops and intel officers.
  • Transqu... Ken 2012/08/15 23:58:40
    I saw that. Still. . .
  • Centuri... Transqu... 2012/08/16 01:00:20
    While we made jokes about whoever the CIC was, I don't remember ever hearing serious dissing of the CIC until Klintonkov. Then, suddenly jokes about the CIC became "forbidden."

    I never heard of any against Bush 43 by Active Duty (I was retired by then) but I've not heard any love to the guy in there by the ones I know now. One young man said that there are a "few" that like him "but they are idiots." Troops seem to despise him as much as I do.

    No damned wonder the sonofabitch wants a "civilian security force."
  • Transqu... Centuri... 2012/08/16 01:08:15
    "Civilian Security Force"
    A standing army to be used against the body politic.
  • Centuri... Transqu... 2012/08/16 01:50:25
    You I know that. Hopefully the American people will see the potential for the abuse of this force. It must not be allowed to fully form.

    If the sonofabitch tries to backfill it with UN troops, we know what we are supposed to do.

    "The stunning comments from Democrat Sen. Barack Obama that the United States needs a “civilian national security force” that would be as powerful, strong and well-funded as the half-trillion dollar United States Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force have mysteriously disappeared from published transcripts of the speech."

    I recall an event when Jimmy Carter landed at a base where I was stationed and the plan was to disarm all of the base Security Police. We told them that if they were going to disarm us then to relieve us as well as we would not go on post not properly armed.

    Somehow, the powers that were did not want to be losing such a large number of men and did not push the issue. We went to post armed as prescribed.
  • schjaz Centuri... 2012/08/18 16:14:33
    that's interesting.
  • Centuri... schjaz 2012/08/18 17:09:22
    Yeah, we were protecting an extremely high priority, sensitive weapons system. The logic was, if we could be trusted to protect this system, then we should be trusted to protect the president.

    If we could not be trusted to protect the president, then we should not be protecting that weapons system.

    Logic prevailed.
  • schjaz Centuri... 2012/08/18 20:05:13
    Excellant. I like it.
  • BackWoo... Transqu... 2012/08/16 01:52:24
    Although UCMJ Article 88 states that a Commissioned Officer shall not express contempt toward officials (IE: CinC), and Article 89 and 91 which covers disrespect and insubordinate conduct toward superiors for Enlisted personnel, the UCMJ does not apply to Veterans or non Active Duty reserves or National Guard Units.

    Law Enforcement Officers, active, former or retired are under no such regulations, and have and still are (note, Sheriff Joe Arpaio) speaking against the presidents behavior and policies.

    I believe you will discover that the people and organizations mentioned are all former Military and LEO Agents and Officers.

    But thanks for your concern anyway..

    Have a safe evening,
