Special Forces


There has been a good deal of prattle from the propaganda wing of the Obama Government – otherwise known as the Mainstream Media – regarding the new Super PAC, Special Operations for America, led by former Navy SEALS and other special operators.

The propagandists looked to cash in on a hoped for backlash against Special Operations for America by pointing to past criticism that resulted when the Obama administration gave Hollywood filmmakers access to names and other classified information regarding SEAL Team Six. They then hoped to portray Special Operations for America as hypocrites in the face of their very public censure of President Obama and his administration.

Where the Propagandists fall flat on their faces is in the fact that the Obama administration gave access to what most agree was classified information as well as access to active members of the teams. In other words information that could negatively impact our security and endanger lives. Alternatively, the Super PAC is made up of veterans, men who are no longer duty bound to silence so long as they do not divulge any classified information.

The public sees the disparity in this and it is apparent that Obama and his propaganda media are accomplishing nothing in their attacks on Special Operations for America other than to make themselves look bad. In reality the issues of providing access to active SEAL team six operatives, divulging likely classified mission details and taking credit for the Bin Laden operation resonate deeply with the American people across party lines.

As veterans, the folks of Special Operations for America most certainly have the first amendment right to speak out in any way they choose just like any other American Citizen. What is important about what is happening is that veterans of Special Forces, with a few notable exceptions, normally keep their past with the teams to themselves. It is a sort of unwritten code. It takes extraordinary circumstances to force these private men into the public eye.

What is it then that would bring these veterans forward? These are men who have served this country in ways that most of us would shrink from the very idea of. These men truly are heroes in every sense of the word, yet they would never willingly accept that title. These men, these Heros, were compelled to come forward as a united political front by one man: President Obama.

I believe that this country is at a significant place in its history. We are at a crossroad of epic proportion. This country can either embrace its roots as a Republican Democracy based on the economic principles of capitalism with the Judeo-Christian ethic as its social foundation. Or else, we can throw away hundreds of years of unprecedented growth, influence and prosperity for a utopian, euro-socialist fantasy that has been proven time and again to be unsound and even now, across the sea, is plunging into an abyss of its own making. This country must decide its course not just in the coming election, but in the coming years. Very hard decisions must be made if this country is ever to reclaim its place in the affairs of the world.

President Obama has shown himself to be the antithesis of everything that this country was founded upon. His actions, many directly by his own hand via executive order, have led this country to the brink of oblivion. This man, who promised to heal the differences between peoples, to have an open and transparent government and lead us to economic prosperity has, instead, plunged this country into a morass of heightened racial and social tension, governmental excess and abuse of power and brought us to the verge of economic ruin. It has been so thorough and so systematic that it is as if it were all done specifically to plan.

In my opinion, Special Operations for America was formed as a response to a perceived threat to this country. It was formed by men who once swore an oath to defend it from any threat, foreign or domestic. I believe that they see Obama and his administration as a direct threat to the future of this country. They have been summoned out of anonymity to address this threat. In doing so, in peacefully exercising their rights under the constitution of this country, they have focused the light of truth on Obama and his administration.

Despite the efforts of the Propagandists, Americans who otherwise might have dismissed the concerns over Obama’s actions as nothing but conservative carping are now being forced to reckon with the truth. Because of the respect for the men and women of our Special Forces, respect which crosses party lines, peoples eyes are being opened. They are being opened to Obama’s willingness to jeopardize the security of this country and the safety of those brave men and women who lay their lives on the line to defend it. All simply to make himself look good in the eyes of the electorate.

Whether by accident or design, incompetence or complicity, this President has done immeasurable damage to The United States on all fronts: Socially, Economically and Diplomatically. It is quite possible we will never regain our place as the leaders of the free world thanks to this man. Is it any wonder that the men and women of the Special Forces would feel compelled to come once again to the defense of the country they so love?
