Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Trying to Swift-Boat Obama Over Bin Laden Leaks

Obama is being swift-boated by the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Inc.,  which says it has about $1 million in the bank and hopes to raise more with the release of its 22-minute documentary about the Obama administration’s alleged leaks.  The group, which is registered as a 501(c)3, which is educational and charity purposes, not political advocacy. Where’s the IRS?  The group is also planning to air TV ads in several swing states.

The OPSEC group says it is not political and aims to save American lives. Its first public salvo is a 22-minute film that includes criticism of Obama and his administration. The film, to be released on Wednesday, was seen in advance by Reuters.

“Mr. President, you did not kill Osama bin Laden, America did. The work that the American military has done killed Osama bin Laden. You did not,” Ben Smith, identified as a Navy SEAL, says in the film.

“As a citizen, it is my civic duty to tell the president to stop leaking information to the enemy,” Smith continues. “It will get Americans killed.” Source:  Reuters

Um, the IRS ought to send them a certified letter revoking their not-for-profit status. This seems like they are trying to make a political statement and not educating anyone on the raid that led to Osama Bin Laden’s death.

GOP Attacks on Obama for Politicizing Osama Bin Laden Assassination Only Helps Him, Remember 9/11?

GOP ATTACKS ON OBAMA:  I am amazed at how quickly Republicans forgot how the Bush 2004 reelection campaign blanketed the airwaves with the events of 9/11, so much so that people were literally hoodwinked into voting for George W. Bush. They saw nothing wrong with that tactic but now that President Obama is milking the Osama bin Laden assassination, they are screaming “off with his head.” Politics is just a dirty game and voters like you and I are used as pawns.

While I found the campaign video playing up the Osama bin Laden assassination somewhat distasteful, it is nonetheless politics and if the shoe were on the other foot, the Republicans would do the same as they did in 2004. GOP attacks on Obama will only help him at the polls and continue to prove that Mitt Romney is like a deer caught between two headlights on foreign policy. A little like his dog Seamus on the top of the family station wagon with all that wind smacking him in the face.

Mark McKinnon: “Just as it would have been absurd for the Bush campaign not to mention 9/11 in our 2004 reelection launch. In fact, all we did in our ads was say we faced some unexpected challenges and showed some images of 9/11. And we were crucified by the Democrats… And now, how dare Obama exploit OBL for political purposes, say Republicans today.”

“When Democrats went crazy about our 9/11 ad in 2004, all they did was bring more attention to the message we were trying to communicate. Which is precisely the trap Republicans are falling into today.”
