Team Obama responds to special ops criticism via John Kerry

posted at 5:21 pm on August 17, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Earlier this week, a group of former special forces and intelligence agents launched a media campaign criticizing President Obama for the White House’s poor handling of sensitive national-security information and for Team Obama persistently using the death of Osama bin Laden as a subject for bragging rights. The Obama campaign can’t have that — Obama almost certainly plans to bring up his daring OBL raid during any foreign policy discussions we have on our way to November, and members of the military and intelligence community rallying in criticism of Obama’s national-security creds would certainly put a damper on that.

I’d guess that’s why the following e-mail from Obama for America just landed in my inbox:

Friend –

It’s easy to look at the attacks, smears, and lies being told about President Obama and his record and say, “Come on, that’s ridiculous. No one could possibly believe that.”

Trust me: You and I learned the hard way eight years ago this August that in the new world we’re living in — one with 24-hour news cycles, the internet, blogs, the echo chamber, and now the new Citizens United-fueled Republican money machine — even completely baseless attacks can stick if people don’t call them out quickly enough. No matter how self-evidently false the attacks are, or how disreputable the people telling them may be, there’s no attack that can’t take hold.

Seeing the new outrageous attacks made against President Obama from a shadowy Republican-allied veterans group called OPSEC, which take issue with the mission to kill Osama bin Laden, remind me all too well of the notorious “Swift Boat” attacks I faced in the 2004 campaign. I honor and appreciate the service of my fellow veterans, but a false attack is a false attack — no matter who’s making it.

It’s not enough to wish them away or dismiss them because they come in part from “birthers” who still won’t concede that President Obama was born here in the United States.

No, we need to get moving now — before it’s too late.

Take a look at this blog post that fact-checks these most recent smears, and be sure to share it with others:

Throughout this campaign, Mitt Romney and his allies have shown that if the truth isn’t favorable to them, they have no problem claiming the opposite — and the reality is that President Obama has a foreign policy record that is among the strongest in recent memory.

In 2008, then-Senator Obama said he’d end the war in Iraq in a responsible way and refocus on taking out Al Qaeda’s leaders.

You and I know he’s followed through in a big way on both those promises.

In contrast, the Republicans have a candidate with absolutely no foreign policy experience, who thinks Russia is our “number one geopolitical foe” and who is advised by people who think — and have repeatedly said — the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia are countries that still exist. Romney’s two major foreign policy speeches never even mentioned Al Qaeda once, and he’s prone to stumbles when he steps onto the foreign policy stage. (He can’t even manage to visit London without causing an international incident!)

Faced with all this, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Romney and his allies are resorting to the same national security smear tactics I faced in 2004. We have to take it seriously. Forward this email to your friends, and encourage them to join us on the Truth Team today:

Thanks for fighting back — forewarned is forearmed!

John

Senator John Kerry
Massachusetts

Well, there you have it, folks — a persuasive argument for Obama’s foreign-policy management if ever there was one. These “shadowy” special-ops groups are just trying to swift-boat President Obama (and John Kerry is the expert, you know!) and are coming from people associated with those crazy right-wing birthers; while Mitt Romney still thinks the Soviet Union exists, couldn’t even make it through the Olympics without upsetting the delicate sensibilities of the liberal media, and tends to focus his major foreign-policy speeches more on Israel and Iran than al Qaeda. Yep, that’s me convinced.

(And, by the way, “the Republicans have a candidate with absolutely no foreign policy experience”? Someone remind me, what were candidate Obama’s spectacular foreign-policy credentials, again?)

They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, tape wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the country side of South Vietnam

“Swiftboating” is a bad thing?

Kerry was a phony who played the system, collected a bunch of medals for non-events, and got caught in the deception.

Obama didn’t even go so far as to don a uniform. To make himself look like an insider he’s released alot of detail, simply for political gain. He’s collected the accomplishments of others and tried to make them his and in doing so has put brave men in jeopardy.

This is a new one. Men in the field want the leadership to shut up. Generally it is the leadership that wants the men in the field to shut up.

Now, contrast that with the Democratic candidate who had abundant foreign policy experience as a communist organizer in southside of $hitcacago,
who also thinks that Iran is a tiny country and is advised by people who are actual terrorists and jihadies.

Hit me in the head and call me doggy, but for me, the only reason the Swiftboat stuff rang true…
Was that Kerry came back from Vietnam and badmouthed his fellow soldiers in front of Congress with all his Genghis Khan BS.

My now deceased brother served in Vietnam, and til the day he died of natural causes, he despised Kerry for that turncoat “testimony.”

Far as I’m concerned, the wimpy, ‘Genghis Khan’ Kerry swiftboated HIMSELF.
