  ” As President Obama is wont to remind us (no, but really — would anyone like to place bets on how many times we’ll hear about it again before November?), he gave the order that led to our amazing special forces taking out Osama bin
Laden. (‘Murika!) To hear President Obama & Friends tell the story, the president handled the situation beautifully, from the beginning when the intelligence started to come in and right on through all of the fallout — but it would appear
that some rather well-qualified Americans are of a somewhat different mind. Politicker reports
that Ryan Zinke, an ex-Navy SEAL of Team 6 and a current Montana state senator, has just launched a new political action committee:
Special Operations for America , a group to support “the election of Mitt Romney and like-minded candidates.” “

Color Me Unsurprised Part 2

We touched on this the other day here but it seems to me that this item , like so many others involving this administration , deserves much more air time .   

  “National SecurityNew documents obtained by a watchdog group show our commander in chief gave the name of a Navy Seal Team 6 commander to the makers of a movie about Osama bin Laden. Valerie Plame, call your office.

Those documents, recently obtained by Judicial Watch, reveal that the Obama administration not only spiked the football and did an end-zone dance after the Navy SEALs dispatched bin Laden from his Club Pakistan abode, but was also willing to expose to the other side our playbook and the name of a SEAL commander.”

This whole affair is just one more example of the shameful lengths that the Obama Cartel will go to in it’s effort to move us “FORWARD” .

” “These documents, which took nine months and a federal lawsuit to disgorge from the Obama administration, show that politically connected filmmakers were given extraordinary and secret access to bin Laden raid information, including the identity of a SEAL Team 6 leader,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

“It is both ironic and hypocritical,” Fitton noted, “that the Obama administration stonewalled Judicial Watch’s pursuit of the bin Laden death photos, citing national security concerns, yet seemed willing to share intimate details regarding the raid to help Hollywood filmmakers release a movie ‘perfectly timed to give a home-stretch boost’ (as described by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd) to the Obama campaign.” ”

 Ask yourself , can the nation successfully endure another four years of these endless breaches 

of security ? The economic damage wrought in the past 3 years is plain enough for all to see but there has been much less notice of the national security threat posed by Obama & Co.

When you’ve accomplished so little of note , you are forced to go with what you’ve got . So we have a one trick dog and pony show in Afganistan , where dear leader is showing off his national defense bona fides , meager as they are .  I may be way off base here , but does anyone know if the troops were disarmed while Wile E was incountry ? I’m going to guess that they were seeing as how that was the case when Panetta visited a month or so ago . 

   Given the level of animosity apparent on the part of the SEALS towards Wile E it would seem crazy to let any soldiers with weapons anywhere near him .

  ” What was supposed to be an easy win—a victory lap on the anniversary of Bin Laden’s death, trumping up the president’s most militant moment—appeared to be slipping away.

The frustration—or, even anger—within the SEAL community is real, and has been brewing for months, particularly among a politically conservative core of operators. It started immediately after the raid, with questions among the Special Forces and intelligence community of whether the president should have waited to announce the kill to exploit the intelligence cache at Osama’s compound. It simmered after a Chinook helicopter was shot down, killing 30 Americans, 22 of them Navy SEALs from Team Six.

Was it a coincidence, SEALs asked themselves, catastrophe hit Team Six so soon after being named as the team responsible for the killing? “

I will forever believe that the president’s grandstanding , indiscretion and ego played a direct role in the SEAL Team 6 losses .
