Obama Adds Military Heroes to ‘Enemies List’
Nobama has no problem releasing secret operational details of our armed forces that put them in harms way, yet won’t release his college grades. Turns out, the credit for giving the operational go on the Bin Laden raid should go to Hillary as Barry had nixed it 3 times prior (new eBook hitting stores today details the story). So how does this White House respond when a group of veterans organizes to prevent his ‘spiking the football’ and putting the lives of active duty personal at risk with security leaks – He puts them on his enemies list. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised, it is his justice department suing Ohio to prevent early absentee voting for military personnel.
The charge made by the Obama campaign is that the veterans’ groups are “Swift Boat 2.0”–referring to the group that launched a series of ads (never refuted) in 2008 contesting claims by then-Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry about his war record. Left-wing groups aligned with the Obama administration have even gone so far as to call the U.S. Navy Seals “gutless” for their participation in criticism of Obama.
Ryan Zinke (above, in 2006), a member of the Montana state Senate and a U.S. Navy SEAL from 1985 to 2008, told Breitbart News: “It’s a sad time for America when a President has to resort to bully tactics, intimidation, and misleading personal attacks against anyone who dares to speak out and be heard. The good thing is Americans have a long history of defeating tyrants.”
Joel Arends, recipient of the Bronze Star and chair of Veterans for a Strong America, said:
The president’s team is more serious about labeling a group of veterans as “swift boaters” than they are about going after the leakers in his administration. The reality is as simple as it is disturbing – American lives are now in danger because this White House under the leadership of President Obama have leaked vital national security secrets. And instead of appointing a special prosecutor – this President dispatches his campaign team to smear a group of vets looking out for their buddies in uniform. It just shows the lack of seriousness on the part of this administration.
If they want to call us swift boaters because we are looking out for our buddies on the battlefield that’s fine with me – we’ll take the political body blows for our comrades in order to ensure that the American people fully understand our position on the issue and see the administration’s intransigence on this issue
