|Obama and his buddy play XBOX as a wine steward looks on|
The new Navy SEAL movie, Act of Valor debuts today, and just in time!
President Obama is making history. He has racked up more XBOX kills playing Call of Duty: Black Ops than all the other presidents combined.
I don't mind him playing video games, but he and the rest of government needs to STFU about secret operations.
Does anyone else see the absurdity of this headline?
Secretive Navy SEALS Take Starring Role in New Film
That’s just as funny as “Quiet Professionals” showing off their craft to a worldwide audience. All of this redounds to Obama’s electoral advantage, of course.
MSNBC nutball and Obama fanboy Daniel Klaidman positively gushes over Obama’s military prowess (by proxy):
“One of President Obama’s earliest kills came in April 2009…”Obama’s kill? I could have sworn it was Navy SEALS, far from home and family, who smoked those Somali pie-rats…
It makes me want to puke when I hear lefties talk like this, glomming onto the valor of those whose budget they want to slash. Here’s some more leftist bedwetter twaddle:
“At a time when many Americans think their government is incompetent, the SEALs are public employees who often get the job done.”Public employees? Often get the job done? What a moron! See what’s going on here? This is boosting Obama and big government by proxy while damning the military with faint praise while trying to equate them with apple-shaped Washington bureaucrats.
Even the title of this bearded-girl’s article screams fundamental ignorance.
Navy SEALS: Obama’s Secret Army
SEALS are Obama’s Army? Yeaaaaahhhh.. I'd like to see ya walk into a Norfolk bar and say that. And they're not so secret anymore, are they?
Later in the article, Klaidman’s Obama ardor subsides and he settles down to some credible national security reporting, but that also shows what’s wrong with bringing details of these operations out into the open.
He describes what intelligence we had ahead of time and the options that military officers discussed with Obama. All details no one in government should have ever let out. Every detail provides a lesson that helps terrorists correct their mistakes and plan better in the future.
As SOCOM Commander Admiral McRaven played head cheerleader at the pep rally for Act of Valor, a retired Special Forces general stood up and sounded off…
“One of these days, if you keep publishing how you do this, the other guy’s going to be there ready for you,” fumed retired Army Lt. Gen. James Vaught at a recent conference in Washington. He was speaking directly to Admiral McRaven: “Mark my words. Get the hell out of the media!” Vaught knows a thing or two about how things can go wrong. He ran the task force that tried to rescue the U.S. hostages in Iran in 1980, which became a fiasco after aircraft ran into dust storms and encountered other unexpected problems. (ABC News)McRaven responded weakly, citing facebook and the John Wayne movie, The Green Berets, saying Special Operations can't get away from the publicity anymore, although they don't invite it (unless they are making Hollywood movies about themselves or the Vice President is sharing classified details with the world).
Keep The Bad Guys Guessing
I agree with Vaught. We are giving the enemy way too much information. Remember back when the US government wouldn’t even acknowledge the existence of Seal Team 6?
I want the flea-infested terrorists squatting in their squalid lairs and the stinking superstitious hordes who cheer and shelter them to think our Spartan warriors are hiding underground right now spying on them, ready to come up through the soil and strangle them at any moment.
I want these 7th century obscurantists to believe we can read their thoughts, see through the walls of the grimy cinderblock huts, and swoop down and grab them at any time with trained invisible eagles.
I want them jumpy at the thought that every crawling bug and slithering reptile is a trained US spy. I want them to think our special forces are supermen, and I want them to think we have a million of them.
It's not so far-fetched. Primitive Muslim throngs blamed the shark attacks off an Egyptian coastal resort on Mossad-trained predators. If the gullible followers of Mohammad actually believe Israel made a pact with King Poseidon to produce a trained flotilla of sharks just to wreck Egypt's tourist industry, they'll believe anything…
By all means, continue publishing pictures of Obama and Palooka Joe eating popcorn in the situation room as Obama get another video game kill, but get the shadow warriors and the intelligence professionals back in the shadows where they belong and keep the bad guys guessing.
