FORMER NAVY SEAL REBUKES OBAMA
Former U.S. Navy SEAL, (and Unite In Action Director),
Benjamin Smith releases an open letter to the President – calling Obama on the
carpet once and for all.
TELL OBAMA – STOP USING THE NAVY SEALs AS A CAMPAIGN PLOY!
May 7, 2012
President Barack Hussein Obama,
STOP using the Navy SEALS as a campaign ploy, because with all due respect,
(what little I have for you), you do NOT speak for me.
We SEALs do not even seek the credit that you claim for yourself. We do the
tough jobs that no-one else can, it is hard to do and we never look for any
accolades; that is why we, like all the other Special Operations Forces are
termed “SILENT Professionals”. And it is certainly NOT in our job description to
help your campaign and improve your polling numbers.
Your LACK of silence regarding the killing of Osama Bin Laden is all a sham
designed to hide a weak un-American man desperate to claim the victories of
others for his own re-election.
You Sir are trying to take the credit for what the American People have achieved
in killing Bin Laden. Your use of the SEALs’ accomplishment as part of a
slanderous campaign ad is nothing less than despicable. I, as a former Navy SEAL
do not accept your taking credit for Osama Bin Laden’s death. The American
Military accomplished that feat. The American People killed Osama Bin Laden, NOT
YOU, President Obama.
TELL OBAMA – I STAND WITH THE U.S. NAVY SEALS!
Memos from then CIA Director Leon Panetta show that it was not you but rather
three star Admiral and former Navy SEAL William McRaven who made the decision to
get Bin Laden. But now that it is useful, you Mr. President continue to refer to
the event as if it were YOU and you alone - your great leadership - which
accomplished the worthy task of slaying one of America’s greatest enemies. When
you addressed the country your language revealed your egotism - “I directed”, “I
Continued”, “MY Intelligence Community”, “MY national security team”, “I
determined that I had enough….”, “My direction…”. I, I, I, my, my, my – words of
a narcissist laying claim to a prize that is not his own.
To make matters worse, Retired General Jack Keene recently informed the world
that you knew of Osama Bin Laden’s location since 2010, yet you did nothing.
Other reliable sources continue to report that not only did you attempt to stop
or delay Bin Laden’s demise, you did not even leave the golf course for the
situation room until 20 minutes before SEAL Team 6 took out Osama Bin Laden.
Even the clothes you wore in the situation room betray this fact. This is a
Commander in Chief? A man who takes credit for actions largely taken while he
was out golfing?
TELL OBAMA – STOP USING THE SEALS AS A RE-ELECTION PLOY!
We men who have taken the military oath say ENOUGH. You do not speak for me, a
former Navy SEAL, or any one of the league of men whom I have earned the right
to be among. You are simply a man running for an office. Yet you behave as a
glory hoarding ruler. You campaign to be our leader, yet in reality you wish to
be our Master.
The American people are the ones who got Bin Laden… You did not! We have fought
wars and slugged it out with Vast Terror Organizations to get to the man you say
YOU killed. The United States of American has won you a title sir and you have
spent the last three years trying to beg, borrow and bow it all away. You just
happened to be president of the USA when WE THE PEOPLE got Osama Bin Laden. We
do not see you as heroic or stoic, we see you as the guy who let America Go –
fat and weak. That is your credit - you bow to foreign leaders and pander to the
press. You do not represent me as a Military Man. You do not represent me as a
SEAL. You do not represent me as an AMERICAN!
TELL OBAMA – STOP USING THE SEALS AS A RE-ELECTION PLOY!
You do not speak for me or any American military man because though you may now
be Commander in Chief, you are not the man to whom we can point our sons and say
“This is the American dream, this is American Exceptionalism, this is what I
wish for your future”,
because you Sir are NONE of these things.
You Sir are the antithesis of American Exceptionalism. Your idols are Saul
Alinksi and Karl Marx and your revolutionary dreams and anti-American ideals
poison your every policy. Your every action betrays the fact that in your soul
you do not understand what it is to be an American, or even know what America
truly is. Your agenda from the beginning as been to get rid of and kill
everything that is and ever was American. You who so easily dismisses America’s
greatness and bows to foreigners… YOU DO NOT SPEAK FOR ME. YOU DO NOT SPEAK FOR
THE NAVY SEALS. YOU DO NOT SPEAK FOR THE MILITARY MAN AND you SHALL NOT claim as
your prize that which you have not earned. The Navy SEALS are NOT a campaign
slogan to be bantered about for play. Nor are our accomplishments, including the
demise of Osama Bin Laden, yours to claim – especially as a narcissistic
Go back from whence you came Sir, for not only do you not speak for me, you do
not speak for AMERICA.
TELL OBAMA – STOP USING THE SEALS AS A CAMPAIGN PLOY!
