By rule, active duty military are not permitted to speak out publicly against their Commander in Chief. But contrary to what some are currently insisting, the return to “Freedom of Speech” comes with the retirement papers. After that, it is a right they, of all people, have earned. John Kerry more than openly exercised his free speech after returning from the Vietnam War.
In the last couple months a group of retired Navy SEALS and other Special Ops men have formed their own PAC (SOforAmerica) in the face of consistent and dangerous intel leaks from the Obama administration. They are outraged at the breach of security and the endangering of the war, missions, the CIA, and military members, not to mention civilians that work with our troops.
These former members of our military’s elite are being attacked as trying to “Swiftboat” Obama in this election. By the way, the Swiftboaters who spoke out against Sen. John Kerry in the 2004 election were correct. However, these men are speaking up for the currently active duty guys that are not permitted to. When asked about it Obama simply dismisses and tries to discredit them…
“I don’t take these folks too seriously,” the president said. “One of their members is a ‘birther’ who denies I was born here, despite evidence to the contrary. You’ve got another who was a Tea Party candidate in a recent election … This kind of stuff springs up before election time.”
This, from the man who thinks so much of the Navy SEALS that he mass produces electronic pen-signed form letters to the families of the fallen.
By the way, Judicial Watch has uncovered and reports of “unusual access” permitted between Hollywood filmmakers and our highest levels of military intel and security. In addition a controversial book is about to be released that counters the Obama version of how Osama Bin Laden was killed. Former Navy SEAL officer and current Montana State Senator Ryan Zinke is also alleging this nation’s special operations community wants Obama out of the White House.
