Former Navy SEAL: Obama Campaign Has ‘Exploited The Military’

President Barack Obama’s campaign has “exploited the military” for political gain, the president of Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund told The Daily Caller.

Scott Taylor, a former Navy SEAL, cites the campaign ad touting the raid that killed Osama bin Laden and questioning whether Mitt Romney would have made the same decision.

“I think it’s a clear example of how this presidential campaign has politicized this bin Laden raid, overpoliticized it, and have exploited the military in a way that they can hit their political opponents and get re-elected,” Taylor said.

“We believe this unprecedented amount of leaks has hindered future operations and could potentially put lives at risk if it hasn’t already, so we’ve basically had enough, and we’re standing up and exercising our First Amendment rights to say something about it,” he said.

Look for the full interview Monday.

I feel so badly for our troops that have had to serve under this total POS Obama.

obama has spent his first term basically campaigning for reelection. If obama wins reelection I think America is going to come apart, maybe violently. In that case, I can see that the military may be forced to take part. I can also see that the military might just tell it's flag rank political officers to kiss off and the bulk of the military would be unsupportive of the obama govt. Hope this never happens, but I don't believe America has been so polarized since the Civil War.

Tom, I fear you may be right. Not just on racial grounds but economic. Class warfare on the part of the lower economic people has reached a boiling point with Obama turning the heat on as high as it will go. People who are given everything are mad because they don't have more and are blaming those who work for what they have.
