A group of former special operations soldiers has launched a media campaign aimed at accusing President of wrongly taking credit for the mission that killed al-Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden.
“Mr. President, you did not kill Osama bin Laden, America did,” Navy SEAL Ben Smith says in a short film released today on the group’s website, opsecteam.org. ” The work that the American military has done killed Osama bin Laden. You did not.”
The group, Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, says it is a non-partisan group composed of veteran soldiers, Marines and intelligence officers unaffiliated with any party or campaign that is calling for an independent investigation into a series of high-level leaks of confidential information that they say compromise overall national security, founder Scott Taylor told ABCNews.com.
