Dishonorable Disclosures is an explosive documentary produced by Special Ops OPSEC. I am sympathetic to their message because I’ve been there and done that. I came from an environment when we got underway at night, or the wee hours of the morning. There was no media, and often no wives or family to see us off. We returned under the same cover of darkness but unlike some of our brothers, there were no bands, crowds and the press to welcome us back. All of it was in the interest of OPSEC. What these former SOF members and Intelligence Officers are saying is quite true. Where I diverge is its agenda.
In the history of the United States of America, there has never been a President that did not take credit for a successful military operation. The President is the elected Commander In Chief and it doesn’t matter if it’s Barack Hussein Obama or Ronald McDonald filling the office. If you don’t like who’s sitting in the White House vote him or her out but you don’t discredit the office. Moreover, there are investigations underway and if you want to be a professional about it let then run their course. Finally, the timing of this production marginalized its informational value, making it nothing more than a campaign video.
I thank you all for your service. I share your insights and sense of frustration, but do not dishonor our country or yourselves just to make a point.
