Barack Obama, the Obama administration and the POTUS campaign staff will put the presidential election above all, even national security!
Somebody needs to remind President Obama of the old adage from World War II, "Loose lips sink ships."
This phrase needed to be created because "The majority of these citizen-soldiers had no idea how to conduct themselves to prevent inadvertent disclosure of important information to the enemy. To remedy this, the government established rules of conduct."
Do any of these apply to the Obama administration? At the very least Number 6 seems to ring a bell!
1. Don't write military information of Army units -- their location, strength,, materiel, or equipment.
2. Don't write of military installations.
3. Don't write of transportation facilities.
4. Don't write of convoys, their routes, ports (including ports of embarkation and disembarkation), time en route, naval protection, or war incidents occurring en route.
5. Don't disclose movements of ships, naval or merchant, troops, or aircraft.
6. Don't mention plans and forecasts or orders for future operations, whether known or just your guess.
7. Don't write about the effect of enemy operations.
8. Don't tell of any casualty until released by proper authority (The Adjutant General) and then only by using the full name of the casualty.
9. Don't attempt to formulate or use a code system, cipher, or shorthand, or any other means to conceal the true meaning of your letter. Violations of this regulation will result in severe punishment.
10. Don't give your location in any way except as authorized by proper authority. Be sure nothing you write about discloses a more specific location than the one authorized.
The following video commercial shows the mother of fallen Navy Seal Aaron Vaughn telling how her son warned them of the risks from irresponsible and politically motivated leaks out of the White House.
Soon after he was killed!
