Special Operations Speaks to Bob Beckel:

Say it to my face.

Yesterday, Fox News’ “The Five” ran a segment on the military members who are taking action against President Barack Obama and his administration for their deliberate, continuing national-security leaks that are endangering the lives of the military men and women who serve and protect the United States of America. In that segment, liberal smear artist Bob Beckel defended the Obama White House’s intentional release of highly sensitive and highly classified security information:

“The idea to suggest that the President of the United States would leak intelligence information, jeopardizing people in the field is close to treason,” Beckel said. “If I were them – I assume they are out of the military now – they ought to take their benefits and go home.”

As honorably discharged and retired veterans of the Special Operations communities of all the Armed Forces and their supporters, whose mission in forming Special Operations Speaks is to illuminate the failed operational security environment of the current presidential administration, we find Bob Beckel’s commentary slanderous, insulting and appalling.

Yes Bob, we are indeed “out” of military uniform, but as private citizens in civilian mufti, we are no less dedicated to protect, defend and preserve the Constitution of the United States than we were when we first swore to do so when we entered military service and then honorably served our nation. Bob, we are home and one of the “benefits” we enjoy, like you, is freedom of speech under the First Amendment of our sacred Constitution.

Me likey. There’s much more to read at the link.

My favorite part, right here:

On the plus side, Beckel’s comments, however, have only strengthened the resolve of Special Operations Speaks and like military groups who stand united in a mission to stop the White House leaks for personal political gain. To use Beckel’s own comparison, if Beckel was worried about the Swift Boats in 2004, then the combined efforts of Special Operations Speaks, OPSEC and other like-minded Special Operations fraternal organizations will seem like “Swiftboating on Steroids” during this critical 2012 presidential election. Be afraid Bob . . . be very afraid.

Oh yessss.

Yes, yes, yesssss.

Libs use the term “swiftboat” as a pejorative, but swiftboating  is one of the most honorable endeavors a veteran can ever engage in.

What it means, roughly, is to tell the truth about a self aggrandizing, anti-American Leftist.

And if anybody needs the truth told about them, it’s self-aggrandizing, America hating leftists.


OPSEC Video: Obama’s Dishonorable Disclosures


Uncle Jimbo of Blackfive: Obama attacks special operators for fronting him out:

Well Barry’s team never had any real respect for the knuckle-dragging troglodytes who he sent out to attempt to give him some tough guy cred and get him some campaign fodder by acting as cannon fodder. The reaction to this legitimate concern about our security shows the disdain they have.

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.”

Making stuff up for purely political reasons, Really? Seriously that is your response, to call them liars? And to do so anonymously? Well that part makes sense, the odds of a gutless, spineless political tool standing up and calling those guys, us guys and other folks who are in a position to make those claims, liars is pretty slim. The Swift Boat reference is actually pretty legitimate, though. The ads that former comrades of John Kerry put out accurately portrayed Kerry as a glory hound punk who spent four months in Vietnam, picked up three extremely sketchy Purple Hearts, shot a bunch of reenactments of his exploits for home movies, and then headed out long before his tour was up to try to become the reincarnation of JFK. So Swift Drone away on the mighty Osama Slayer’s wafer-thin resume and phone book thick record of using it for his own aggrandizement.

Foreign Policy: Anti-Obama Navy SEAL leader: I’m a Birther

President Barack Obama is a socialist, was raised by communists, and wasn’t born in the United States, according to the former Navy SEAL who founded the group Special Operations Speaks (SOS), which aims to portray Obama as anti-military in this election season.

Earlier this week, a different group of former Navy SEALS calling themselves the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund rolled out its campaign to criticize Obama for leaking national security information and taking what it believes as undue credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden. That group claims to be non-political.

But the founder of SOS, a similar group with the same mission and the same tactics, says he has no problem admitting that he is against Obama’s politics, personality, and believes that America’s current president is lying about his origins.

“I have to admit that I’m a Birther,” said SOS founder Larry Bailey, a retired 27-year veteran of the Navy SEALs, in an interview. “If there were a jury of 12 good men and women and the evidence were placed before them, there would be absolutely no question Barack Obama was not born where he said he was and is not who he says he is.”

Bailey, who is part of the leadership of SOS’s effort to mobilize thousands to take to the streets to denounce Obama’s treatment of the military through an SOS project called Operation Street Corner, doesn’t only believe that the president is a foreigner. He also believes that he is not actually the son of Barack Obama, Sr. Bailey trumpeted the conspiracy theory that the president is actually the love child of Ann Dunham and writer Frank Marshall Davis.

I didn’t catch the part where Baily said Obama was born outside of the United States. I think Josh Rogin, the author of that Foreign Policy piece was inferring that. What Baily said was he doesn’t believe Obama  was born where he says he was born.

UPI: McRaven: Bin Laden raid was ‘historic’:

The admiral commands 66,000 Special Forces from all branches of the U.S. armed forces, including some 7,000 deployed in Afghanistan, CNN said. He also declined to tell persistent audience members details of the military drone campaign in Pakistan that has killed top al-Qaida and Taliban leaders.

“We are never happy when leaks occur and we go to very great lengths to protect our sources and methods,” he said. “Sooner or later it [leaks] is going to cost people their lives, or it is going to cost us our national security.”

Like clockwork – who didn’t see this coming after what Baily said?
Now Swift-boat victim #1 enters the fray:

President Barack Obama‘s aides and allies are trying to undermine an emerging campaign by former soldiers who are slamming the White House for what they see as a willingness to betray the nation’s secrets in exchange for publicity.

His aides released a plea from Sen. John Kerry late Friday, urging supporters to ignore the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund’s hard-hitting criticisms. OPSEC is military jargon for operational security.

Not because anything OPSEC is alleging about the leaks is wrong, mind you – they’ve got a new angle….

Kerry’s email was accompanied by a second message from Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt.

With the subject line “Forwarded Without Comment,” LaBolt’s message consisted of article which said the head of a different group of veterans — not the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund — believes Obama was born outside the United States.

Okay, not only is Baily not part of OPSEC, he never said Obama was born outside of the United States.

The article, published in Foreign Policy, quoted Larry Bailey, who founded the unrelated Special Operations Speaks organization, saying “I have to admit that I’m a Birther.”

LaBolt’s effort to associate the birther movement with the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund is likely intended to mute the impact of the group’s charges.

Democrats have chosen to be sensitive to criticism from veterans because they blame a veterans groups for derailing Sen. Kerry’s 2004 run for the presidency.

“Seeing the new outrageous attacks made against President Obama from a shadowy Republican-allied veterans group called OPSEC, which take issue with the mission to kill Osama bin Laden, remind me all too well of the notorious ‘Swift Boat’ attacks I faced in the 2004 campaign,” Kerry’s email declared.

That group of veterans, “Swift Boat Veterans for Truth,” said then that Kerry exaggerated his Vietnam combat activities; Kerry’s supporters tried to refute the group’ charges. After he lost to President George W. Bush, they angrily declared that their new neologism — “swiftboated” — should be used to describe people who are unfairly criticized.

Nyet, comrades. Swiftboated should be used to describe commie scum who have  had the truth told about them.
Carry on, men.

  1. Deb, it looks like you had a Meg Ryan moment there!

    The loons on the left still haven’t learned anything about dealing with the Military. They failed the last time when they tried to intimidate the “Swift Boat Veterans”. It didn’t work. The loons tried the bully tactic with them and only got punched back twice as hard.
    These boys [Peckles and Eric] are going to sooner or later find out that these are not the people to be messing with.

    And besides I had first dibs, with Peckles.


  2. I love how this steps all over what President Gutsy wants the electorate to view as his biggest, most glorious achievement: “Getting Bin Laden.”
    Of course he had to be dragged off the damn golf course to watch the operation after he repeatedly disapproved it at Jarrett’s command.

    These guys know the truth.

    No less than THREE Special Op groups have formed to defeat SCOAMF. That alone speaks volumes.


  3. This has been brewing and festering for a long time now. As soon as the I-I- & Me-Me’s started flying the guys who couldn’t talk [Active Duty] reached out to the retired community and asked them for help getting the word out. Not only were they [the Team] identified but their home station was mentioned also, jeopardizing their Families. It started within the SEAL organization but all Special Forces Operations fall under one Command now. They are a very tight community. It’s been years since I’ve been in but, I belong to a SF professional association where the rumblings have been going on for some time now. None of them are thrilled over the entire situation, it’s a very serious breach of security.
    There is always a inter agency rivalry amongst the organizations and services, but there is nothing that will unite them more, then something like this.
    Stay tuned……..


  4. In the current print National Review (summary):

    Adm. William McRaven, C.O of the U.S. Special Ops Command. Planned the bin Laden raid. When he was a 3-star Admiral, still went on night raids with his SEALS. &c, &c.

    A warrior through and through. Here’s an online story:

    McRaven on the raid

    and the money quote:

    “”We are never happy when leaks occur and we go to very great lengths to protect our sources and methods,” he said. “Sooner or later it [leaks] is going to cost people their lives, or it is going to cost us our national security.”

    Obama might take note.


  5. Beckel is such a caricature of the “Away with you and your facts; my mind is made up!” left-liberal that I can’t help but imagine a conversation like this:

    Beckel: So how’d I do tonight?
    “The Five” Producer: Not bad, but the fire wasn’t as hot as last night. You need to ramp up the lunacy a bit more.
    Beckel: Oh? Well, I have to admit, I wasn’t really “feeling it,” much of the show. What do you have in mind?
    Producer: Make wilder accusations. You know, real hairy-eyed, blood in the streets and bodies dangling from lampposts stuff.
    Beckel: Hm. I like it, but…got any suggestions?
    Producer: Well, you know the Navy SEALs, right? Special forces group that’s more selective, trains harder, and takes deadlier assignments than any other force in the world?
    Beckel: Yeah…
    Producer: Well, there’s a bunch that’s angry about the leaks of classified intel. Thinks they’re politically motivated to make Obama look good. Why not light after them? Accuse them of treason, maybe?
    Beckel: Oh, I like it, I like it! How about tomorrow?
    Producer: I’ll set it up.


  6. So, tell me again where this outrage was when the previous White House outed a CIA operator, in a time of war? Where were our flag-bearing men in uniform with their outrage? Show me a link? Come on, don’t be shy.

  8. The worst thing about the Plame trumped up nontroversy is that an innocent man had to go to jail for it.
    Oh yeah. They made a movie about it, too. The best way to rewrite the history about something is to make a movie about it.


  9. You’ll have to do some serious digging to find it. The references seem to have vanished from the Internet. Like some of the other “Anti War Organizations” Like the Weather Underground, Vietnam Vets Against the War received funding through Cuba from the Soviets and Chinese for the purpose of trying to undermine our Government and Military effort. As Spokesman for the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, John Kerry should have been aware of that, he may have personally received some of that money as compensation for his time or expenses. It might be difficult to prove in court after all these years. However. if he did know, it absolutely meets the Constitution’s definition of treason.

    Swift boating is mild punishment compared to a short drop with a length of rope knotted around your neck

  11. Thanks Deb,
    Fred, there was absolutley no secret that Plume was a CIA Op; her hubby bragged about it all over DC and cocktail parties. This was just a campaign to smear Cheney and attempts to impeach in the Bush admin and the anti-Iraq war they were so against….

    Grateful to know that more with authority know are supporting the “birthers”; instead of being called a fringe groups. obama, the usurper, is hiding something and we have a right to know. We may be opening a can of worms and find that he is actually a “natural born citizen” and just who is going to lead him out of the Whitehouse in chains and handcuffs for lying, fraud and forgery ? We got the fox in charge of the hen house (i.e. DoJ)

    I want like to know where he was for 2 years (1981-1983) if he did not go to Columbia.


  12. Fred, allow me to help you out here. [Deb, I beg your indulgence.] I’ll give you the facts, then you google it.

    Bob Novak’s article was the item that set off that controversy, “the so called outing”. He refused to disclose his source for the information, during the investigation.
    A Special Prosecutor was appointed by President Bush [Fitzgerald].
    On the morning that the article appeared, Colin Powell’s Deputy Richard Armitage called Powell and told him “I believe I’m the source of the Novak piece”.
    Powell said that both of them would meet and go to the Special Prosecutor’s office and inform them. Which they in fact did.
    Knowing full well by now that the source had come forward, Powell sat in meetings with the President and never said anything to him about the incident. On instructions from Fitzgerald’s office. Not very loyal from a sitting Secretary of State and former Army Officer, or for that matter a Special Prosecutor [from Chicago no less].
    Fitzgerald continued his investigation and then convened a Grand Jury, having full knowledge that his investigation “did not uncover any additional source for the leak”. Trying to entrap a administration official.
    He [Fitzgerald] continued to march Staff members before the Grand Jury until he got someone with a fuzzy memory and charged them with perjury [Scooter Libby].

    After the Special Prosecutor closed the investigation, Novak then disclosed the source of the article as Richard Armitage. Armitage then admitted that it was he, and that he informed Powell and the Special Prosecutors office. Armitage admitted they were told to “not say anything, to anyone”.
    Richard Armitage sat for a interview with 60 Minutes and admitted to his role. The video in on “youtube”.
    Plame’s husband the former Ambassador regularly introduced his wife at social events as a CIA employee [never as a covert officer]. He also had no expertise or background to be set to Niger to investigate anything regarding “yellow cake”. none!
    The entire thing was a political ruse, trying to cook up a issue. They used the political operatives of Mr & Mrs Plame as pawns. And being the dupes they were, they went with it hook, line and sinker.
    But, if he was officially delegated or appointed as a investigating “official”. They/He usually [in fact never] publish their findings in the “nytraitor” [even if it IS the paper of record for dopey libs]. Their findings are passed up to the investigating chain, the agency [CIA].
    “Covert” operatives of the CIA wouldn’t be caught near Langley, they work in the field.

    /rant off
    Now I’ve just glossed over most of the “facts” of the case, I can provide much more detail should you run into any additional difficulties, with the truth. Get back to me, if you do.
    Now you really have your work cut out for you, if you care to learn anything about the truth regarding this perpetual dopey librul myth that minions like you seem to enjoy in keeping alive.

    “The truth shall set you free”, Fred, try it for once.

    [there for the uptinet time, I got this off my chest]


  13. Deb, I wasn’t sure about that; a lot of conflicting info out there. Recently a graduate at the same time obama was supposed to attend came forward. Maybe obama just registered and never showed up, who knows…..

    According to obama’s own words, he went to Pakistan via Indonesia for two weeks (partridge hunting?) (uh, that was his foreign policy experience to be POTUS) in summer of 1981. When he came back he changed his name from Barry Soetoro to BHO and registered at CU; fall 1981-1983.

    (Grumpy, Accuracy In Media and USA Survival, Cliff Kincaid, has a lot of info on the Cuban connections to the all things radicals of the 60s in America; including the SDS, Weather Underground, Hanoi Jane etc….and redacted FBI files)

  15. Mr. Beckel, it seems fitting that a dishonest narcissist, Obama, would turn to another dishonest narcissist, John Kerry, for support; both having been accused of causing damage to national security and discrediting our military while trying to take credit for the accomplishment of better men and women who actually placed themselves in harm’s way to protect us.

    Read CHAPTER 10 An Incident on the Bay Hap River from Scott Swett’s “To Set the Record Straight” to find out for yourself what a self-aggrandizing liar John Fraud Kerry truly is.

    CHAPTER 13 Rather’s Ruin and the Rise of the Pajamahadeen exposing Dan Rather’s last gasp fraud, the one that cost him his career, is also a free pdf download.

    You do know that John Kerry and the VVAW plotted to kill half a dozen U.S. Senators in 1971, right?
