Let me lay it on the line: Barack Obama’s loose lips are doing worse than sinking ships – they’re putting our entire nation at risk.
And if you and I don’t get this man out of office, he’s going to destroy our military, undermine every ally we have, and arm our enemies to the teeth.
It’s interesting then, that the group’s website promoted a Fox News article yesterday reporting that current U.S. Special Operations commander Adm. William McRaven, while warning about national security leaks, praised Obama as a “fantastic” commander-in-chief:
Indeed, talking with CNN’s Wolf Blizter at the Aspen Security Forum this week, McRaven said, “we’re never happy when leaks occur obviously,” but the Special Operations commander never pinned any blame on the president. In fact, as the article SOS promoted notes, McRaven praised Obama:
BLITZER: What kind of commander in chief is he?
MCRAVEN: The president of the United States is fantastic. And, again, I am not a political guy. I have worked in both administrations. I very, very much enjoyed working for President Bush, and I very much enjoy working for President Obama. … This is about a commander in chief who I have the opportunity to engage with on a routine basis, and watching him and the decisions he makes, along with his national security team. They’re a very impressive group of guys and gals.
Watch the clip:
If you’re a group of former special ops officers and your goal is to kick President Obama from office on national security grounds, it’s probably not the best idea to promote stories reporting the top American special operations officer calling President Obama a “fantastic” commander-in-chief.
SOS has updated its post promoting the article with McRaven’s comments about Obama:
*NOTE: While we respect Admiral McRaven’s service to his country, we do not share his view that President Obama is a fantastic Commander-in-Chief. Rather, we believe that President Obama will make a much better former Commander-in-Chief.
