The killing of Osama bin Laden is an accomplishment mentioned many times by President Obama and his administration. Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod once said the case for a second term could be summed up by saying, “General Motors is alive and Osama bin Laden is dead.”
But even though the al-Qaida mastermind is gone, many veterans of U.S. Special Operations are furious over how the Obama administration handled the matter.
A new, scathing Internet video accuses Obama of arrogantly taking credit for the kill when he had little to do with it and for revealing operational details they believe compromise our forces, our location, our sources and more.
Retired U.S. Navy Capt. Larry Bailey was also a Navy SEAL and is co-founder of Special Operations Speaks.
“Somebody needed to stand up to keep Obama from taking credit for an operation he had nothing to do with and for spilling the secrets of our military,” Bailey told WND.
He said Obama’s handling of that mission and other sensitive national security issues makes him unfit to be commander in chief.
Bailey said Obama should have leaked almost nothing about the bin Laden mission, except to say that bin Laden was dead. He contends the president’s ego led to far too much information being made public – all to the benefit of our enemies.
When Obama defenders accuse these special ops veterans of being the 2012 version of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, Bailey said he wears that allegation as a “badge of honor.”
He said his group unequivocally endorses Mitt Romney and wants to see President Obama retired after just one term.
