If you, like me, did a “Yes!” when the President announced the sudden departure of Bin Laden last year, you may not have realized that temporary euphoria may have had a cost. Since the first year of his Presidency, the Obama administration has done a bit too much talking about things best left unsaid. OK, I’m being kind here (not really sure why….). They just can’t keep their mouths shut.
I didn’t need to know about the Pakistani doctor who was a key link in the Bin Laden raid. I didn’t need to know the name of the actual unit involved. I didn’t need to know the details of the raid. All this information sure didn’t need to be plastered across the airwaves. But, if you’re a political animal who puts self above country, bragging about all these is natural act (hey, Mr. President – you didn’t do that. Someone with actual skills did!).
Many in our intelligence and military community have had enough. I’ve joined them in their quest, and I’d ask you to consider doing the same. Their message, in true “give to ’em loud and dirty so they’ll remember it” fashion is simple: “Mr. President, shut the **** up!!!”
View this short video, then join with them and help amplify their voice for not only those on the front line today, but all those who will serve in the future. As long as we keep electing politicians, we’ll need to keep stapling their mouths shut!
