So now the Navy SEALs are asking for protection for their families and themselves.
“Frankly, a week ago Sunday, in the Situation Room, we all agreed that we would not release any operational details from the effort to take out bin Laden. That all fell apart on Monday, the next day” [Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said.]
No information was going to be released and then it all went to hell, did it? And the elite professionals in our armed services have the WH to thank for this. Are they going to take responsibility if anything happens to our SEALs and/or their families? I doubt it. There will be countless trumped up excuses but no one will take responsibility for flapping their yaps and endangering some real American heros.
When is someone going to start talking about how much the WH is leaking and how dangerous this is to our soldiers and to the nation’s security? Someone needs to tell them to shut the hell up. There’s way more information out there than anyone needs to know. And the information we do want – a picture – is “too dangerous to our troops to release.” How stupid is this?
All of this leaked information is a national security issue to be sure but it’s also a life and (God forbid) death issue for our SEALs.
For Obama, it’s a political stump speech issue. And that is the most disgusting, immoral thing about this whole episode.
Barry, please shut your pie hole. This is not going to win you another term, especially if something dreadful happens to our SEALs and our nation.
