PHOENIX, May 2, 2012- On Tuesday, the political group, Veterans for a strong America, released an ad saying, “Why does Obama take so much credit for killing Osama Bin Laden?”
One year ago, Operation Neptune Spear resulted in the killing of Osama Bin Laden. The Al-Qaeda terror leader had been hiding in Abbottabad, Pakistan, killing.
One year later, President Barack Obama is launching “Operation Spike The Football”, as a tough re-election campaign.
The first attack is President Obama's political ad attacking Mitt Romney, claiming that presumptive Republican nominee wouldn’t have ordered the kill to take out Bin Laden.
The ad, narrated by former President Bill Clinton states that Obama took the “harder and the more honorable path,” in killing the terror leader.
Hard-Hitting Ad Has Bill Clinton Praising President Obama For Getting
The ad then displays a banner of text reading, “Which path would Mitt Romney have taken?”
The ad continues with clips of President Obama announcing the death of Bin Laden, highlighting just how much Obama overused the word “I,” instead of the United States for example.
Ever since Osama was announced dead, Obama has run around on a victory lap claiming that it was his leadership that ultimately killed Bin Laden.
When in fact, Obama only authorized the operation to take place; he was not there. The troops killed Bin Laden. Obama and the White House haven’t given credit to where credit is due.
The Navy SEALs.
Unfortunately for Obama, serving and former Navy Seals aren’t keeping quiet about his political victory lap, as they’ve come out against Obama.
"I think every president would have done the same. He is justified in saying it was his decision but the preparation, the sacrifice - it was a broader team effort," a former Navy SEAL and Team 6 assault leader is quoted as saying the Daily Mail Online, "The President and his administration are positioning him as a war president using the SEALs as ammunition. It was predictable."
Another serving SEAL Team operator says about the president:
"Obama wasn’t in the field, at risk, carrying a gun. As President, at every turn he should be thanking the guys who put their lives on the line to do this. He does so in his official speeches because the speechwriters are smart. But the more he tries to take the credit for it, the more the ground operators are saying, “Come on, man!” It really didn’t matter who was president. At the end of the day, they were going to go.’
Even the far-left Editor-in-Chief of the Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington, slammed Obama for making the OBL raid political, saying, ‘...to turn it into a campaign ad is one of the most despicable things you can do.’
To top off Obama’s inaccurate victory lap, according to the CNSNews’s database on Afghanistan war casualties, 69% of war casualties in the country have happened under Obama’s watch since taking office in January 2009.
