The SEALS seem to have a good publicist, and an even greater mysticism to the American public [and the world] so they get used in situations of a "secret" nature that aren't. This is classic Orwellian doublespeak. Prudence would dictate that particulars of [a] mission (assets, operators, etc) not be compromised as a matter of OPSEC.
The Obama administration's promise of "transparency" does not extend to compromising operational security. EVER. An announcement of any kind, public or private, assigning blame or giving credit [read responsibility] thereby putting your asset at risk is what is referred to as a "burn."
Washington has a bad habit of self aggrandizing and fraud in attempts to distract from the real issues. Obama is no different. He is becoming a better "Bush" than "W" was. His speech [Obama] on the fabricated operation bringing about the second "death" of Osama Bin Laden was the most disgusting example of "patting oneself on the back" I have ever seen.
America better wake up, and wake up fast. The game isn't about "us" anymore, and it hasn't been for a while. The Powers that be are DESPERATE. They are grasping at straws because they are losing the information war. Anything that can be done to obscure the issues, quell the masses, stay in power, and neutralize intelligent dissent WILL BE DONE.
The country is on the brink of economic collapse. We are involved in SEVERAL conflicts [read wars] we cant afford, where American people [soldiers] are DYING. To pay for it -the "Fed" keeps printing more money, and the dollar continues to fall. Gas prices are skyrocketing because the dollar isn't worth as much, and masses of people are still clinging to obsolete and outdated "partisan" allegiances.
It isn't about Obama vs. Bush.
It isn't about Left vs. Right.
The governmental policies of this administration are simply an extension of the previous administration, regardless of partisan affiliation. Republican or Democrat, the policies have no major shift from election to election.
Again, here's the damning passage from the book "Tragedy and Hope" by Carroll Quigley, Bill and Hillary Clinton's mentor at Georgetown University:
"The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can "throw the rascals out" at any election without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy."Its right there. The left/right paradigm is gone. The line has been blurred. The whole farce is a simple case of Obama practicing CYA.
