Reckless Leaks

STOP THE LEAKS!

INFORMATION LEAK SOLELY FOR POLITICAL BENEFIT BY OBAMA'S ADMINISTRATION SHOWS "RECKLESS DISREGARD" FOR SAFETY OF SPECIAL OPERATIONS FORCES

Col. Dick Brauer, USAF (Ret.), one of the founders of Special Operations Speaks, issued the following statement in response to politically-motivated leaks by Obama's administration in regard to a rescue mission carried out by United States Special Operations Forces in an attempt to rescue abducted American citizen and journalist, James Foley, as well as other hostages:

“Just as occurred after the Bin Laden takedown, Obama's administration has leaked high-end classified information strictly for political gains. AGAIN. They have jeopardized future operations and endangered our Special Operations Forces (and potentially even their families). And once again, it is abundantly clear that they have no compunction about standing on the backs of our military in order to gain political traction. These purposeful leaks have undermined the safety of our soldiers as they go into harm's way and have further enhanced our enemy's knowledge of the battlefield and our tactics as well as bolstered their morale.


ISIS stated that they were unaware of who conducted the raid to try to save American citizen and reporter James Foley for nearly two months; now they know, thanks to these conscious leaks by this administration.

This is unacceptable and borders on treasonous. It is nearly incomprehensible that an administration, whose head is ostensibly in charge of the country, can be so callous and have so little disregard for the people who actually do the work of killing terrorists and rescuing hostages.

Between this, Benghazi, and the illegal and horrifically ill-advised Bowe Bergdahl fiasco, it is crystal clear that politics comes first in the world of Obama and his administration, and that he could not care less for the safety of the men and women of our Armed Forces.

This is unconscionable."

Demand Congress investigate the reckless leaks from the White House!

Congress MUST ACT before the Obama Administration puts more Men and Women of our Armed Forces in harms way!
Once again, Obama and his lackeys have released high-end classified information for political gains. This time, the information released was in regard to a rescue mission carried out by United States Special Operations Forces in an attempt to rescue abducted American citizen and journalist James Foley, as well as other hostages.

This adminstration cares about nothing beyond its own self-interest. And the people of this administration have made it clear that they will do anything and step on anyone in order to maintain their grasp on power. No one is exempt-- not even veterans.

This is beyond the pale.

The time to act is now. Sign the petition to demand that the Obama administration stop continuing to leak high-end classified information. This must not stand.


    Whereas, Obama released sensitive and classified information about the secret operation conducted by U.S. Special Operations Forces to kill Osama Bin Laden, thus exposing American tactics and techniques and procedures in real-time and real-world scenarios, and was done so strictly for political gain; and

    Whereas, against the advice of many servicemembers and military consultants, Obama pulled all U.S. troops out of Iraq, creating a power-vacuum that ISIS has now filled in less than 2 1/2 years. He did this for political points and proceeded to "spike the football" for the next year; and

    Whereas, the Benghazi cover-up is unconscionable and is an egregious demonstration of just how little both Obama and Hillary Clinton truly care for the fighting men and women of the military; and

    Whereas, Obama's Veterans Administration actually created secret waiting lists in order to collect bonuses, which resulted in the deaths of dozens of veterans. Obama's response was to throw more money at the VA. Using the root cause of the problem as the solution to the problem is essentially planning to fail; and

    Whereas, Obama secretly and illegally traded five high-level Taliban commanders for one American soldier who allegedly deserted, knowing that the Taliban commanders would almost undoubtedly go back to waging war on American soldiers;

    We, the undersigned, call on the Obama administration to cease and desist all leaking of classified sensitive information involving future, ongoing and recently concluded military operations for the following reasons:

    1. Preserving the safety and welfare of the servicemembers involved in these operations and in future operations

    2. Protecting the safety and welfare of the families of the servicemembers involved in these operations and in future operations

    3. Releasing classified information on the previously mentioned subjects bolsters the morale of the enemy and helps to lift the "fog of war" from their eyes. Case in point is ISIS not knowing who hit the compound during the July 4th, 2014 weekend in an attempt to rescue reporter James Foley. Courtesy of the Obama administration, ISIS now has this information.


Just as occurred after the Bin Laden takedown, these purposeful leaks have undermined the safety of our soldiers as they go into harm's way and have further enhanced our enemy's knowledge of the battlefield and our tactics as well as bolstering their morale.

This is unacceptable and borders on treasonous. It is incomprehensible that an administration, whose head is ostensibly in charge of the country, can be so callous and have so little disregard for the people who actually do the work of killing terrorists and rescuing hostages.
