Barack Obama’s ‘enemies list’ just got bigger. In April, Kate wrote about one of Obama’s campaign sites naming and shaming private citizens who donated to Mitt Romney. Now, one day after Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund released a documentary-style video hammering the president for countless national security leaks and the politicization of the raid that killed OBL, the Obama campaign decided it was time to target military heroes.
The charge made by the Obama campaign is that the veterans’ groups are “Swift Boat 2.0”–referring to the group that launched a series of ads (never refuted) in 2008 contesting claims by then-Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry about his war record. Left-wing groups aligned with the Obama administration have even gone so far as to call the U.S. Navy Seals “gutless” for their participation in criticism of Obama.
