What a bunch of traitorous fools!
yep ... wish I was shocked.
Robert Gates was the only adult in the room.
It’s every God-forsaken day. EVERY FREAKING DAY!
I doubt there’s a single person from the top down at least 2 levels in the Federal government who hasn’t done SOMETHING against the law. Yet we’re all just sitting here.
I don’t believe the United States of America exists any more. We are a group of sovereign states, but the Federal government is a dictatorship. There’s not a free-thinking man among them.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I’ll be waiting for the arrest warrant signed by Eric (The Red) Holder.
I’ll bet this is the first time Obama has heard anything about this.
Ship of fools

Defense Sec. Panetta On CBS: Navy SEAL Should Be Disciplined For Publishing Book On Bin Laden Raid
September 11th, 2012
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta appeared on CBS This Morning, and finally opened up about the controversial book written by a Navy SEAL detailing the raid that took out Osama bin Laden. Panetta suggested that the SEAL could face heavy punishment because if the government did not take such action, others would interpret it as a sign that military officials could go public about any secret missions without facing the proper consequences.
Norah ODonnell asked Panetta, who was the director of the CIA when the raid was carried out, why the government is unhappy with the book by the Navy SEAL coming out when the government itself provided information about the bin Laden raid to several news publications and the makers of a Hollywood film about the raid. Panetta said that there is a clear difference between government officials being authorized to provide information to certain individuals and a lone individual releasing details on his own terms.
When ODonnell asked if the SEAL should be prosecuted for writing the book, Panetta said some disciplinary action should be taken to discourage future activity by military members.
I think we have to take steps to make clear to him and the American people that were not going to accept this kind of behavior, because if we dont, then everybody else who pledges to ensure that that doesnt happen is going to get the wrong signal, that somehow they can do it without any penalty to be played.
Panetta, Clinton, Huma, and Obama wanted them DEAD.
Reasons unclear fully as yet, except they always
are there to help al Qaeda over ANY American.
SEAL Parents: Obama Put Our Kids in Danger
Panetta hints at reprisals for author of bin Laden book
By Kevin Spak, Newser Staff
Sep 11, 2012
(Newser) The parents of one of the members of SEAL Team Six say President Obama endangered their son, and the entire unit, by publicly identifying it as the team that killed Osama Bin Laden. “Aaron called me up and said, ‘Mom, you need to wipe your social media clean of any reference to me or any of my buddies,’” Aaron Vaughn’s mom tells Fox News. “’There’s chatter, and all of our lives could be in danger, including yours.’ Then I realized all of those families were all of a sudden made targets by this administration.” Vaughn was killed in Afghanistan last year.
The accusation hits amidst controversy over a new book from an ex-SEAL Team Six member giving an insider account of the bin Laden raid. Leon Panetta hinted this morning that there might be reprisals for the author. “We have to take steps to make clear to him and to the American people that we’re not going to accept this kind of behavior,” he told CBS, according to the AP.
Meanwhile, Shakil Afridi, the Pakistani doctor whose intelligence made the raid possible, tells Fox News that Pakistani intelligence views the US as “our worst enemies, worse than the Indians. I tried to argue that America was Pakistan’s biggest supporter but all they said was ‘These are our worse enemies.’” Afridi also said it was “indisputable” that the ISI funds the Haqqani network and other militants.
Another day, another “behaved improperly, won’t happen again” misstep from this admin. The LSM will give 0 another slap on the hand, buried on page 4.
As I understand it, such lapses result in immediate expulsion for actual members...
Looks like they found somebody to throw under the bus.
Break out your nitro pills...
