Navy SEAL Hands Obama His Ass

Couldn’t have said it any better! I wish more former servicemen/women men would speak out against Obama. Obama loathes the military one minute and then uses them for political gain the next.
……

Navy SEAL hands Obama his arse

FORMER NAVY SEAL REBUKES OBAMA
By Benjamin Smith
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.

You have a movie about SEALS within the past year trying to identify with me, with the navy SEALS, and with anything that might improve your polling numbers…and yet it is all a sham to hide a weak un-American man desperate to claim the victories of others for his own.

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 a campaign slogan 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.

Yet now that it is useful, you Mr. President, continue to refer to the event as if it were YOU and you alone which accomplished the worthy task of slaying one of America’s greatest enemies. You say “I directed”, “I Continued”, “My Intelligence Community”, “My national security team”, “I determined that I had enough….”, “My direction…”

Yet 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?

We men who have taken the 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 with Vast Terror Organizations to get to the man you say YOU killed. The United Sates of America has won you a title sir and you have spent the last three years trying to beg, borrow and bow as you GIVE 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. We got fat and weak and you gave it all away. 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!

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, not what America truly is. Your agenda from the beginning has 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.

So you DO NOT speak for me. And I will not stand for your use and abuse of my brethren the SEALS.
For Liberty,

Benjamin Smith

  • May the Almighty bless and protect this fine American Treasure ! You Sir, Mr. Benjamin Smith, are a credit to and an outstanding example of a Patriot ! I’m sure the extensive majority of your fellow military brothers and sisters experience the same DISGUST for this liar and thief that occupies the White House. Sir I stand with you and your account of this IDIOT in the Oval Office ! It’s an extreme shame this nation has become such as to place him in charge of the greatest military the world has ever known. I thank you and pray Divine Providence will always over shadow you with His wings of Grace. I thank God for you and all of this nations military. I am proud to call you my fellow American.

  • Josie

    Excellent! This should be shown to everyone and maybe even put in an ad to show others the truth of the lies the imposter in office tells the hopeless dopes that still follow him.

  • Gingerb4

    I sure hope men like Benjamin Smith will be just as strong and firm in protecting our country and citizens when “0” unleashes his private army and the un on all of us. Wonder how he feels about the fema camps.

  • Mch20s

    Well said and I thank you for your service to this great country!!

  • As a veteran myself, I couldn’t have said this any better. Thank you Mr. Smith for setting the record straight for that which we already know. Thank you for serving and realizing it’s the American military who take credit and not this…person in charge. Doc Chandler (medic)

  • Guest

    With all due respect for Benjamin Smith, and I truly do respect you, I believe that any president would have “taken credit” for this monumental moment in American history. As the brother of an American soldier, serving in Afghanistan at the time of this defining moment, I do not believe that we have had an honest president in the last 6 men holding the office. Obama did not start this war, nor did he plunge the country into debt, he inherited this situation.
    I thank you for all that you have done for this country, and while I will never support the use of the American military for anything other than the protection of our nation from an invading nation, I will always support and be thankful for our veterans. I voted for Barack Obama, and have been thoroughly disappointed with his performance as our President, but we had a far less competent president in Mr. Bush who ordered the invasions of both Afghanistan, with good reason, and Iraq, with no reason at all.
    However, this is the United States of America, one of the greatest nations in the world, and you sir, as one who fought to preserve that, are free to express your opinion and have that right, just as I a citizen of this nation have the have the right to disagree with some of what has been said.
    Thank you for your honesty and your service sir.

    • poorsheep

      This is the best, most well informed, and most well written comment here. He or she is right, any President would have taken credit. Where was this guy when Bush started a war for oil and then stated ‘Mission Accomplished’ when the war was still on? This next election is going to be hard. None of the candidates really deserve to be in office and I don’t think any of them will do a good job of it. Again, we are left with the choice of a douche and a turd sandwich and both leave a bad taste in our mouth.

    • to Guest>I’m sorry guest, your facts are wrong about Bush and Obama. While this is not the place to discuss this, please re-check your facts. Where we are today is not because of G. Bush, it is because we have a President that has FAILED us. He FAILED to act responsibly in his first term and the future is not looking any better. He has shown his dishonesty and incompetence. Obama has led our country into financial ruin and disgrace far beyond any of his predecessors.. There is no excuse for that no matter how many TV shows he goes on.
      I believe any President would have taken credit for getting Osama but they would have stated it as “We the American People “, “Today “WE” can close a chapter”, not “I-I-I”.
      Thank you Mr. Smith, we can’t ask you for better.

  • Alohajonny

    Hell YA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Again, any president would have taken credit for it. You’re just ragging on him because he’s a black/muslim/socialist/liberal/atheist/communist/nigger/arab president and you’re a white christian conservative useless member of the military.

    • Ashamed of Obama

      ^Douche!

    • 123

      Ha! Your the idiot wqho plays the race card all the time…stop doing it, it is pathetic

      • mike

        This useless member of the military gave you the very freedom to say those words Nicolas. Also, playing the race card is typically played when no other arguing points can be made or the person making the argument doesnt have the mental capacity to make such arguments.

  • i cant figure out how anyone that hasnt served can be commander and chief thats like putting the fox in the hen house

    • JB

      It’s Commander IN Chief.

  • Argity

    You’re retarded.

    There, I said it.

  • Jkgcmorris

    what an idiot – Shut your mouth you moron. You Certainly do not speak for any military personnel – You Don’t get to choose what the American Dream is… And guess what, By enlisting in the Armed Services of the United States you agree to defend the constitution, uphold the law of the land, and follow orders given by The Commander In Chief. NOT just get money for college and suck off the whatever government tit makes you feel best. Find some honor, find some humility and represent yourself as your code dictates. Your association implies that You had something to do with any of the action taken, or that you somehow have been deemed the voice of The Navy Seals or any military service (how hypocritical that YOU think you have some right but the President of the United States Does Not!). I can certainly see why you choose to speak up as a “Former” Seal. I hope you get the attention you so desperately need, because your ethics, honor, and intestinal fortitude are long gone.

    • KemperFi

      Show the respect where it is deserved. With the United States Military, not the Socialist States of Obama, asshole.

      • Jkgcmorris

        Ignorance is bliss – Commander and Chief of the United States Armed Forces, The Highest ranking Member of the Military.. Huh, another ignorant statement from another Socialist Elite unhappy with a win unless its HIS win.. How unpatriotic and Pathetic.

        • Will

          LKgcmorris ,You sir are an ignorant and brainwashed idiot !

    • Lindamarkuson

      U shut up! Ur the moron blinded by Obama’s words. Take ur head out of ur stupid ass. Ur probably a commie or socialist.

    • victor curtis mcgee

      you voted for obama because he is black, did’nt you

      • Zena2337

        All of the blacks did, they felt obongo was going to redistribute YT’s money.

        • you mom fell for for lies too like when that homeless homosexual, that is your father told her he would support her. now we have to pay for your ssi too, you are a sick sick little girl madam.

      your a real furbar ya know it…..go back in your whole and drag the dirt in on top of you so when young kids like this navy seal quit protecting your butt that’s all the guts you will have left to is bury yourself…..you yellow belly coward…..sounds like you like this half breed….well hows about you and him go back to where you came from kenya maybe….leave this great country…that you don’t deserve to be in….
      If this half breed were one tenth of a commander I would say you were right…..but he isn’t… never was….. never will be…a community organizer (of golf games) he is a destroyer and more than likely you will help him so shut the up

  • Joe2

    Did W get Hussein? Or was it someone else?

  • Joe2

    Do you even know who Saul Alinski is? You’re just a moron. Stop watching Fox and wack job radio. Just because you served in the military doesnt mean you have ultimate credibility on these matters. McCarthy was a moron. Go sleep with your rifle and stick your Johnson in it. Lord knows it probably fits.

    • Chainshot09

      What is wrong with sleeping with my rifle?
      The Riflemens Creed.
      This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
      My rifle, without me, is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will…
      My rifle and myself know that what counts in this war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, or the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit…
      My rifle is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel. I will keep my rifle clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will…
      Before God, I swear this creed. My rifle and myself are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until victory is America’s and there is no enemy, but peace!

  • John

    Yeah right, no one who serves talks about their President that way. FAKE!

    • BMartin1776

      Uhhhm if you did some research instead of jumping the gun you would know he is retired.

    • John Galt

      I served honorably and I talk about the illegal pResident like that on a daily basis. In fact, I’m sure most vets, active AND retired feel the same way.

      • guest

        First off, you display your idiocy–our President was legally elected by a majority of voters. Get over it! And as a disabled veteran who is proud of my service, I feel if you do your research (and learn something), you will find that most veterans respect our President and respect his positions on getting us out of GW’ messy wars, and increasing awareness and programs that benefit our veterans.

    • Redranch300

      you want to place a very large bet on that?

    • Bob

      John you are very wrong. I served during Bush Sr. and Clinton. Clinton sucked as far as serving during his presidency and anyone that has served his country by fighting in a combat zone has that right to speak the truth. Mr. Smith has earned his right and he isnt a fake. Bow your head to this man who has been shot at to protect your freedom and shut the fuck up.

      • Mjlmcl

        this is America – WE DON’T BOW -STFU!!!!

    • Mjlmcl

      probably a paint-chipper….

  • Sprocket

    what an idiot….a real person would try and reach out and help correct mistakes; not denounce their president. EVERY president in the HISTORY of our nation has made mistakes, whether they were unintentional or, unfortunately, part of corruption. Politics are politics; ONE MAN cannot change everything for the good in a day. Don’t forget that we have imbeciles in congress who would rather argue of stupid party traditions than get things done and accomplished while the American People suffer! Be angry at congress, NOT at the president. I am a service member. I may not be a HOORAH seal, but i’ve been in battle at war and lost brethren as well. I watched the national address when he PRAISED the SEALS’ effort and the cooperation of the intelligent community. You’re an IDIOT if you think he wants all the credit; nobody is THAT naive.

    This is ‘Merica! Stand by her! No matter who is President! Remember that oath you took? Obeying the orders of those appointed over me? Where’s your loyalty? Shut up and drive on!

    “No matter what the situation I am in, I will never do anything, for pleasure, profit, or personal safety, which will disgrace my uniform, my unit, or my country.——-

    I am proud of my country and its flag.
    I will try to make the people of this nation proud of the service I represent, for I am an American Soldier.”

    I heard most of this on fox news.. I think it’s ignorant. President Obama offends so many ignorant people, kinda makes me like the guy.

    • John Galt

      Project much?

  • Truth

    Go fuck yourself Ben… You sound like a wimpy loser. If I was 20years younger, I’d hit you with one of the toys my grandma use to get for my sister… They were always soft like your heart. But really, go fuck yourself. You cunt!!

    • Proud American

      What a tool. Pull your pants back up and move away from the computer. “If I were 20 years younger….”. Yeah, so what?? If you were 20 years younger you would be in the same place you are today. Still living at home without a life.

    • mjlmcl

      I could careless what Ben has to say. Obama, as Commander-In-Chief, he has given credit and thanks to the military PLENTY of times for killing bin Laden, so I really don’t care what he has to say. And NO, he does not speak for all military, he’s not even active duty.

      The American people need to know this. They need to know 6 months after 9/11, GWB didn’t think bin Laden was a priority. Nor did McCain or Romney in 2008. Obama stated CLEARLY UBL was a priority. As Commander-In-Chief, he worked with DoD and CIA that REPORT TO HIM, and he made the tough decision (which cost Carter his election in 1980) to send troops into harms way to take care of UBL once and for all.

      American NEEDS to know where each candidate stood on ALL issues to make their voting decision. Therefore, the killing of bin Laden is de facto political, in that mission, success and failure of our executive branch is important in making a voting decision.

      If this ex-SEAL doesn’t like it, fine, he’s entitled to his opinion. But his opinion counts no more or less than anyone elses in the military or private sector, and NO, he can make no claim to speak for all. If he tried to make that case, then fine: My rebuttal is that Obama has received FAR MORE contributions than Romney, or any other candidate, from servicemen.

      Servicemen OVERWHELMINGLY support Obama with their checkbooks. This man appears to be in the minority – He needs to know that.

  • Proud American

    @Truth. What a tool. Pull your pants back up and move away from the computer. “If I were 20 years younger….”. Yeah, so what?? If you were 20 years younger you would be in the same place you are today. Still living at home without a life.

  • A Real America Patriot

    Pretty much seems like a disgruntaled punk raging, a disgrace to the uniform he wore. Where was this clown when Bush claimed victory and used the military for a major photo op? Holding a ship out of harbor an extra day just so he could land and lie to their faces that “mission acomplished”

  • Difficult to criticize the president for politicizing the event, while simultaneously politicizing the event. He says Obama didn’t get Bin Laden, the american people did. Well, if we’re going to get real about the whole thing the american people not only didn’t get Bin Laden, we didn’t even know he had been gotten until Obama told us.

    If we’re to believe that the Pakistani government was unaware of our presence, then Obama’s decision to go in was not such an insignificant contribution. Listening to this guy, you’d think he believes some retired Navy Seal member, sitting at home planning his next fox news interview had more to do with killing Bin Laden than the president did.

  • JB

    First of all, thank you for your prior service, sacrifices, and selfless willingness to go in harm’s way whenever and wherever it was necessary to do so. As a 30+ year retired veteran of the U.S. Army, I applaud that we still live in a country where citizens such as yourself can freely express their non-threatening opinions for or against their government leadership without fear of censorship or other retribution. That’s a big reason for why many of us served and continue to serve. It sure ain’t the paycheck.

    However, I completely disagree with your point of view that Obama is claiming credit for that POS’s killing all to himself or using it as a “campaign slogan.” It was his call as president to send in the professionals, and he did it. This takes nothing at all away from who actually did the deed, and no one in their right mind would think it does. Obama’s comments recognizing the one year anniversary of POS’s killing were entirely appropriate, in my own opinion. I may not vote for him in the coming election, but it won’t be because of this. You do not speak for me as a service member, you speak only for yourself, and others may or not agree with what you as an individual say, but using your status as a former USN SEAL to add gravity to your comments is as wrong as what you say Obama has done.

    I see your point and respect your opinion, but I disagree with both.

    • RTL

      As a retired USMC family of one who also has over 30 years of military service, we too would like to thank you Mr. Smith for your service while we also commend you for taking a stand and speaking out. Thank you, JB, for your military service, as well. God bless you both!
      JB, although we respect you and your many years of service, we take a different stance then that of yours, as we feel Mr. Smith does speak on our behalf, and probably a majority of most military vets and families.

      By all appearances one would believe PBO has and continues to politicize the killing of BL for his own political gain. I’m glad the American people are smart enough to see right through this while many are speaking out and giving credit where credit is due, which is to USN SEAL TEAM 6 who did in fact execute the mission that eventually took out OBL.

      With that being said, we cannot forget other key players of those serving in the intel field who provided vital information that ultimately lead to the discovery of OBL. One can only assume these men and women contributed in a great way to the success of this mission. Furthermore, OBL’s discovery was a direct result of the very policies that President GWB implemented during his administration. Sure President BHO called the order, and we will respectfully give him credit for that- However, calling the order was the easy part. Any sitting US President would have made the same executive decision. The hard part, were those individuals who put themselves out there in harms way. They are the real heroes.

      While you condemn Mr Smith for using his status as a former USN SEAL, we applaud him for doing so, as it was necessary for him to establish credibility via by status while shedding further light from a USN SEAL’s prospective. Not to mention, he earned that title.

      One thing we can agree on is the beauty of America, a land that we can all agree to disagree, thanks to our Founding Fathers and to the brave military service members, past and present. The moment we take for granted our God-given rights/blessings is the moment we cease to exist as a nation… God bless America!!!

      • RTL

        I wanted to take a moment to say I meant absolutely no disrespect to our President in my comment above, as I do NOT want to water down his role as CIC calling forth the order- Having said that, I do strongly agree w/Mr. Smith on so many levels. Having been a military wife for several years, I have witnessed first hand that many of our service members do not always get the credit and respect they deserve.

        I honestly believe the discovery of OBL was in fact a combined team effort from both sides of the isle and our military service members from the policies of our past President, calling forth the order from our current President, those in the intel field who gathered vital information, and to the men in USN SEAL TEAM 6 who carried out these heroic acts of bravery and courage. May God bless all of our brave men and women in uniform, protecting them from harms way, and may He bless & watch over those precious family members who are left behind!

        • RTL

          Grammar correction (2nd paragraph): ————- was in fact a combined team effort from both sides of the isle *along with our military service members- from the policies of our past President, calling forth the order from our current President, those in the intel field who gathered vital information, and to the men *of* USN SEAL TEAM 6…….

    The big difference between past and present administrations is that we never before had a president and political party who was against the Republic and was making every effort to destroy it uder the guise of “just being fair” but actually sucking up to the Socialists and Communists..

    • Grandmagrandpacrockett

      You have absolutely no legitimate proof of your statements, and when you do, come back with an actual example of what you are talking about–not just fox news talking points.

      • Grandma, grandma, grandma, are you still living in your kids’ basement? Obama has made direct statements against our founders, our country and our constitution. And is now waging a direct assult against our Christian beliefs with his abortion/contraception mandates. In a quick internet search, I came up with this video by Hillsdale College that addresses your request for “legitimate proof”. It’s an hour long, so grab a coffee and sit back….enjoy….http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wzmwG4BwQw If the link doesn’t post, search youtube for the obama administration vs the constitution.

    How can so many here have such a disrespect for their President? I understand you do not agree with Democratic politics- but he is your President. Show some decency and respect. Democrate or Republican- we need to work together. Every President is a figurehead. The navy Seals did a wonderful job- I live in NYC and I commend them. I also think our President deserves credit for getting the job done. My question to the doubting Republicans is – If Bush Jr had acomplished this- would you have been happy to have him take the credit? Would he have been any more responsible for the outcome? We need to realize we all live in the same country- we are not eachother’s enimies. Why is there such a divide?

    • BMartin1776

      Oh shut up

      The Emperor in chief has no respect for the office he is occupying and no respect to the military. FYI I dont think GWB would have been taking credit for giving the “greenlight” order to take UBL out. There is divide b/c ppl have chosen sides and you need to choose one too! Either you are with freedom, capitalism, small government or you are with the progressives aka communists! The choices cannot be any clearer this Nov…

      sorry, one small correction – Obama received more contributions from donors than any other MAINSTREAM GOP candidate….Ron Paul beat him…

    Sorry Mr Smith – But you are wrong.

    The executive branch of the United States RUNS the operations that ensures that the risks associated with deploying US SEALs into a mission like this has risks mitigated to acceptable levels, and based on sound intel.

    Your post assumes the SEALs performed this mission. I disagree. Intelligence officers put their lives on the line to collect HUMINT to ensure SEALs were being sent into a mission with a reliable target. HIGHLY INTELLIGENT analysts sifted through ALL intel to give the President the information he needed for him to make a call.

    Other support personnel, militiary, DoD, intelligence, etc. made sure your mission was derisked as much as was possible. And at the end of the day, OUR PRESIDENT, and the SEALs Commander-In-Chief, made the call, and did it with all due caution and contemplation needed to make sure the SEALs performing this mission were as safe as was possible.

    And the mission was a success not only due to excellent preparation, but by OVERWHELMING capability the SEALs had when they carried out the operation. This president didn’t declare “Mission Accomplished” as his SecDef skimped on armor, then have Walter Reid in a sad state of preparedness as those BLOODIED during conflict returned to LESS THAN ACCEPTABLE conditions than what they deserved.

    Leadership is A VERY LARGE PART of a successful mission. Perhaps you never were a leader, and never understood that. Leaders do.

    Fine, SEALs put their lives on the line. So too did many others, with much higher risks, less preparation and FAR LESS firepower. They lurked in Pakistan months before SEALs went and cleaned up. For all we know, some may have even died – We may never know.

    They did it in service of their country. As did Obama. GWB, McCain and Romney thought a man who architected the death of 3000+ American civilians was a low priority. THIS PRESIDENT said NO WAY – WE BRING HIM TO JUSTICE, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER!!!

    And that’s what he did, presidency on the line and all. When others would not. When others seemed to push the feelings of the 9/11 families onto the back-burner, this President stepped up and got the job done.

    He may have been gracious to our servicemen and deferred to their accomplishments – BUT HE GETS TO TAKE A BOW IN HONOR OF ALL FAMILIES OF 9/11 VICTIMS, AND DIDN’T SEEM TO HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO REALLY GAVE A DAMN WHETHER BIN LADEN WAS ALIVE OR DEAD!!!

    You’re a citizen now, no better or worse than any other citizen. You’re entitled to your opinion. But YOU DO NOT speak for ALL MILITARY and ALL 9/11 FAMILIES….

    There – I’m done with you now, pal !!!!!

    • Mjlmcl

      sorry, there were typo and grammar mistakes in this, but this is emotional for me…

      Our current president got the job done….that means A LOT to many of us, and I’M SICK AND TIRED of hearing it was “just the SEALs” who carried this mission out.

      SEALs get the glory….MOST of the real heros behind this ENTIRE operation are never heard of, and some actually DIE in the process.

      And at the end of the day, IT DOES REQUIRE a president to prioritize a mission, take a risk that could HAUNT HIM for the rest of their life, not just politically, but personally, as they send men and women into harms way.

      For almost 5 years, George W Bush neglected Afghanistan and let bin Laden and most of al Qaeda escape to Pakistan. Going into the sovereign nation to exact JUSTICE took guts.

      I will vote for Ron Paul this year, I’ll write him in if I have to. But I’m a fair man…

      MR PRESIDENT, YOU DESERVE TO TAKE A “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED” VICTORY LAP ON THIS ONE, no matter what this ex-SEAL says. He does not speak for ALL military and clandestine services….

  • Mjlmcl

    /// 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. ///

    REALLY? IT WAS THE SEALS ACCOMPLISHMENT, WAS IT?

    There were no HUMINT officers on the ground putting their lives on the line IN PAKISTAN with FAR LESS firepower than SEALs, and who often improvise, and IF THEY FAIL, just disappear?

    And I suppose the HIGHLY INTELLIGENT analyst in the cubicle, sifting through all the data for 100s of hours a week to ENSURE a safe mission for those SEALs might deserve a tad bit of credit as well…

    Your little BITCH SESSION is your right as a citizen….just stop acting as if this was JUST A NAVY SEALs accomplishment….for every one of these missions, there are 100s of intelligence officers putting there lives on the line, not to mention THOUSANDS of your basic infantrymen who engaged in firefights for hours or days at a time in both theaters…

    Sure, the mission was risky, and the SEALs deserve credit – STOP ACTING LIKE THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE, OR THAT IT WAS JUST “YOUR” ACCOMPLISHMENT….

    And stop pretending EVERYONE in military or clandestine services SHARES YOUR VIEW….Your’s is an opinion, pure and simple….You may be a patriot, fine….there are MANY OTHER patriots that support this president. It probably explains why THIS president enjoys MORE contributions from servicemen than ALL OTHER MAINSTREAM GOP presidential candidates combined….

  • Mjlmcl

    This president is far better than his predecessor. Many act as if George W Bush is a strong supporter of our servicemen.

    This is a falsehood. Put aside, for a second, the easy one – The horrible conditions for our wounded at Walter Reid.

    In December of 2001, after the invasion of Afghanistan, the US, with overwhelming force, had the Taliban close to extinction and al Qaeda pinned in Tora Bora for extermination. Less than 50 American operatives (soldiers and CIA) had been killed and wounded, and less than $50B spent. We COULD’VE WON DECISIVELY by mid-2002 with < 200 servicemen killed and wounded and, btw, < $100B spent – TOTAL.

    Read Gary Berntsen (“Jawbreaker”) and Dalton Fury (“Kill bin Laden”), CIA and Special Ops operatives respectively involved with the late 2001 campaign. BOTH conclude GWB pulled back when we had the Taliban and al Qaeda against the wall, resulting in COMPLETE neglect of Afghanistan for AT LEAST 5 years.

    The rest of the story we know: We pivoted to Iraq, invading based on INCREDIBLY FLAWED and POORLY VETTED intel. To date, over 6,000 servicemen have been killed, over 40,000 wounded and, by estimates, some 400,000 suffering PTSD, not to mention the stresses to family lives from multiple tours and suicide rates in the military skyrocketing. Oh, and again – Instead of only $100B spent, we’ve spent WELL OVER $2trillion in both campaigns (some put that figure higher.)

    In words, GWB supports our servicemen. In deeds, he OWES THEM his support now as penance for the lack of support, through mismanagement of these campaigns, that led to the suffering his failed prosecution has foisted onto America’s treasure – The 1% REALLY worthy of our admiration.

    This president is performing FAR BETTER than his predecessor, and is pulling our nation out of the "Dark Ages" of the Bush administration, including the mismanagement of multiple wars that has put UNDUE stress and pain on our national treasure and TRUE 1%….

      but hey….maybe it’s just all about the SEALs….

      Mjlmcl………….are you on the grape or lemon Kool-aid because you are way out there into left field shagging right field fly balls that aren’t there to catch! You my friend need some immediate help!

    Obama is so incompetent he can’t count his balls twice and come up with the same answer. God bless you sir, thanks for your service to the greatest nation ever seen on this planet!

    • and god bless the president for sending the seals to kill bin laden, the gop had 8 years to do so and failed! so thank god we have a commander in chief who can get things done. you are a traitor and a slob mam. a disgrace to america.

  • wow you chem trail belivers are soo racist youll let the gop fool you into selecting a mormon for president. you arent christians if you elect a mormon. this is the saddest election ive ever seen. no choice at all.

  • Linda77122

    This man (a republican) should be ashamed. If the mission had failed, he would have had no problem putting the blame on Obama. I always heard that the Seals were private and wanted to do the job and fade into the back ground. Evidentally this guy is out for glory. I”m so ashamed of him.

  • L’ilgangsta40blunt

    uhh ben smith you are a fucking pussy and a tea party hand puppet… reg army dude here that could and wants to kick the living shit out of your racist, birther lies…how any iraq afghan vet can blast Obama but leave out gw and dickface cheney is mind boggling… since when the fuck did lying abd using bible quotes to start a war become ok… benny go fuck your lover scitt taylor in his retarded mouth.. you two little lying pussies were made for each other… more vets should be demanding gw and cheneys head. unfucking real Jerseybear Real Vet Not Gop Cum Swallower

  • Thank you Mr. Smith, for your gut instincts, your refusal to be bought, and your stance on protecting your countrymen. I applaud you with my whole heart. As well as all our military–that will never choose to side with Obama, but will always endeavor to protect their brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers and children.~~TKGreenhill

    only problem i have with this is last time i checked the united states president is the head of the armed services and is Commender in chief. . Nothing gets the go ahead in missions with out his say so,. He gave the order to Kill or capture Bin Ladden .No one else could do the plot with out his say so, The armed services in every country who’s president is chain of command regardless of weither they like them or not , has to obey and honor there president. It is a choice to join any army , but in doing so you must honor your commander in chief. What if Bush was in office would this person dare say this about Bush … I doubt that he would . You serve the country and the president . The president has overall say of what missions gets the go ahead. The president takes most of the blame from other countries for what happens. The army work as a team . But if they who serve are not willing to honor the seal of the president of the united states they then should not serve there country . Obama is the commander in chief, he above all is the only one that can declare war on another nation . Regardless of personal feelings or not The overall decision to send in troops lies with the president of a country. Remember the seals acted with out approval of another nation and entered international airspace and broke Pakistan airspace. they were lucky they were not shot down , Pakistan warned the united states afterwards that next time they break there airspace pakistan will get mad at the states. Pakistan were not informed nor were they told of this happening and that really made pakistan mad .

  • CounterRevolution

    Outstanding, Semper Fidelis!

  • As a combat Vietnam veteran, I see this man as a true hero! Obama is no more than a glory hound who needs all the support he can get, so he grabs whatever fame he can reach and use it all as his own “victories”! Benjamin Smith, you have my respect and love as a true brother!

  • mrsH

    Wow, this is powerful! I am glad that not everyone is willing to protect this tyrant of a president who does not deserve to be in office.. way to go and God bless you for your service to America!!!

  • vickie robinson

    God Bless you for speaking up , we stand beside you.

  • This former sailor is a POS. He did nothing to stop Osamma. Who is he to criticize the commander for taking credit for his decision. The seal sailors just popped outta the helo and marched up to the 3rd floor. No resistance. This former petty officer sailor should shut his pie hole.
