US Spec Ops: The Truly Elite -Updated

I wonder how many of you truly understand the quality of person it takes to be a Navy SEAL, an Army Ranger or Green Beret, etc, etc. The only thing I know about it is what I've seen from various Discovery Channel, Military Channel, or National Geographic shows. Which is to say, not much. But they give the stats. The washout rate is high, only ~25% make it through SEAL training. It is TOUGH. We see the NFL players, the NBA players, they are the elite of their sport. A Spec Ops troop will have the physical attributes to play those sports, but will also have the fortitude to keep that up for hours on end, but will also have the intelligence to carry out a mission in FUBAR. These men are incredible. And the United States spends a lot of time, money, and resources making sure our elite are ready.

And we lost 2 a few weeks ago. Two.

We don't lose SEALs. We don't lose Rangers. We don't leave them out there to battle alone if at all possible. But Obama, his administration, did just that. These 2 SEALs, Ty Woods and Glen Doherty, attempted to be the rescue team for their colleagues, but their Supreme Commander, the Commander in Chief, did not have their backs.

And what does Hillary Clinton have to say to the father of one of the SEALs? "We will make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted." Really? The film? That idiot was practicing his First Amendment Right.

I apologize. I have no ability to close this post. I leave you with this.



TRULY SCANDOLOUS!!! THEY WERE DENIED SUPPORT THREE TIMES WHILE THEY STILL HAD THE ADVANTAGE. Why is FoxNews the only one covering this? http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/26/cia-operators-were-denied-request-for-help-during-benghazi-attack-sources-say/

I pray everyday that we get a real man in office who respects the office and the American people. This joke we have now is disgraceful. Romney and Ryan are both decent men who want to do the right thing and who are real and care. Obama is a mystery man who just cares about power and changing the country to his view.

Retired General Tom McInerny told FOX's Meghan Kelly today that Obama's handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack - from reducing security before the attack, to denying backup requests during the attack, to covering up who was behind the attack - "BORDERS ON CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE."

In the wake of Obama's outrageous dereliction of duty, Romney's support among current & former members of the U.S. military is about to jump from 70% to 100%.

Impeach Obama - vote Romney on November 6th!!!

FOX & Talk Radio are the only broadcasters covering this monumental news story.

If this news story had occurred while a Republican was in the Oval Office, it would get wall-to-wall coverage ON EVERY TELEVISION & RADIO NEWS OUTLET IN THE NATION.

Who can possibly forget the non-stop, ubiquitous, breathless coverage of the Scooter Libby-Valerie Plaime controversy, the Bush National Guard controversy, the Bush drunk driving controversy, the Casper Weinberger controversy, the Iran-Contra controversy, the Watergate controversy, the list goes on - all of which paled in comparison to the outrageous conduct of the Oval Office's current occupant.

This constant, blatant, fraudulent double-standard by government-sponsored, FCC-licensed "newscasters" is beyond the pale, and is clear grounds for suspending and/or canceling their broadcasting privileges.

Last time I checked the U.S. Constitution, freedom of the press does NOT include the freedom to monopolize the public airwaves with left-wing propaganda, lies, and coverups.

This makes me MAD. Punish a filmmaker for murderous acts? Democrats are sick and braindead zombies, just as Bob Hope said so long ago. They are disgusting. Punish Hillary, she's the one who didn't send the requested help. She should be shot for suggesting the denial of first amendment rights. We are not terrorists or subjects of Shariah Law. Who is Hillary? Down with her. That Navy Seal died to protect that filmmaker's first amendment rights, not Hillary Clinton's pro-Muslim political agenda. Hillary reminds me of the people in England who threatened the lives of Stanley Kubrick and his family because he made "Clockwork Orange." Only shown now in England after his death. He was blamed for gang killings because some claimed in court that the gangs had no responsibility, but that blame went on Kubrick.

Hillary Clinton NEVER took direct responsibility for anything except "running the State Department and its 60,000 employees and 275 posts."

She NEVER took direct responsibility for reducing security at the Benghazi consulate before the attack.

She NEVER took direct responsibility for denying backup requests during the attack.

She NEVER took direct responsibility for the coverup following the attack.

Nor should she, because all those decisions were made by Obama, and she has e-mails and cables to prove it.

Hillary's so-called "mea culpa" was purely designed to take the heat off Obama during the final 2 months of his re-election campaign, knowing full well that the left-wing news media would play along with the ruse.

Long after November 6th, 2012, but long before her presumed 2016 presidential run, Hillary will simply release/leak e-mails & cables that completely exonerate her and point the finger of blame for Benghazi squarely at Barack Hussein Obama.

But Obama won't be running for anything in 2016, so what does he care?

I don't actually mean Hillary should be shot. I mean that I hate seeing the filmmaker with a bag on his head, and being hauled off to prison. Not a great country that can't protect its citizens from Muslims nutcases that apparently come in the millions.

Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution. The term aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information. If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given.

The Treason Clause applies only to disloyal acts committed during times of war. Acts of dis-loyalty during peacetime are not considered treasonous under the Constitution. Nor do acts of Espionage committed on behalf of an ally constitute treason. For example, julius and ethel rosenberg were convicted of espionage, in 1951, for helping the Soviet Union steal atomic secrets from the United States during World War II. The Rosenbergs were not tried for treason because the United States and the Soviet Union were allies during World War II.
