Special Operations Speaks:
With All Due Respect, General Dempsey 

Special Operations Speaks (SOS), the group representing special operations veterans, notes with great concern the comments made by General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, about the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund.

Among other observations, General Dempsey said “If someone uses the uniform, whatever uniform, for partisan politics, I am disappointed because I think it does erode that bond of trust we have with the American people.”

SOS at once takes umbrage with and is saddened by General Dempsey’s remarks.  A spokesman for SOS stated that the organization is concerned that a serving military officer, much less a four-star general, would make such a statement, especially considering how unauthorized leaks of classified information at the highest level continue to imperil the men and women of our Armed Forces.

Said the spokesman, “It is ironic, indeed, that the senior military officer in the land would attempt to stifle the legitimate comments of an organization dedicated to defending the free-speech rights guaranteed under the First Amendment.  After all, if military veterans can run for federal office, surely they can express themselves without being political candidates.”

The SOS spokesman added that SOS would continue to pursue its goals of stopping the leaks of classified information attributed to White House sources.  He also emphasized that SOS is not connected with active-duty military personnel, nor does it purport to represent them.
