That was a well-known expression spoken during World War II, and it certainly applies to the alleged remarks of Vice-President Joe Biden as outlined in an email I received recently. Please take a look.
“President Obama is not the only goof up in this Administration ...
So, here is how I understand what happened in Afghanistan with the slaughter of the guys from Seal Team Six.
On the night of the Osama Bin Laden raid, Secretary of Defense Gates asked all the people in the situation room to abstain from revealing that Seal Team Six was the military unit responsible. Everyone agreed, understanding the danger of revenge seekers from the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
Then on Monday, Vice President Joe Biden, in an attempt to show how much he was in the know, revealed that it was Seal Team Six. Of course the media then ran with it. So the Pentagon has gone to great effort to protect Seal Team Six and their families. As of last Thursday Gates, who is no longer Defense Secretary, stated that they had implemented very advanced security measures.
As to what happened in Afghanistan, apparently Al Qaeda fed false information to the US that a high value target would be at a precise location on Friday. So naturally, the military sent in Seal Team Six to get them. It was all a set-up and heavily armed Al Qaeda and Taliban were waiting for them and we know the results.
This is not the first time that a politician has caused the deaths of American Servicemen, but it is one of the most egregious. I guess Panetta, the current Secretary of Defense, and Gates are furious. I think Biden should be tried for treason, but I doubt that will happen. I just hope the American electorate will kick these amateurs out of office.
Incidentally, all of the above is public record. Gates has made many speeches since he left office in which he discussed the extreme danger Seal Team Six was under since their identity was revealed by Biden.”
It gravely concerns your Commander that our Vice-President would make such a blunder which resulted in the death and destruction of brave American personnel. I really did not want to believe this information, but upon conducting a search on Google, it is clear that Biden did make the statement exposing and identifying the Navy Seals to the Osama Bin Laden raid.
If you or I had made that criminal remark we would be dealt with harshly, and it would be justified. That will not happen to Biden, but I personally can react with my total disrespect for his action and make a point to guarantee my readers that he will never ever receive a vote from this American.
I salute the brave Navy Seals, the Air Force personnel, the Afghans aboard, and the Army men who operated the helicopter who in early August lost their lives in proud service to our country as a result of the ambush by the Taliban and Al Qaeda. Joe Biden has a significant amount of blood on his hands and he should be ashamed of his repeated blundering and loose lips.
