Anyone who is remotely familiar with Fox’s “The Five” knows Bob Beckel. He’s the token liberal who constantly looks down at his crotch for long periods of time and mumbles to someone or something under the table. When he does pick his head up and look into the camera he has a habit of swearing; he’s like Fox News’ Joe Biden, a blowhard who doesn’t realize he’s a blowhard.
Yesterday he took issue with the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, the organization of Navy SEALs and Special Ops guys who are slamming President Obama for the political leaks that have been putting their brothers-in-arms’ lives needlessly in danger. Beckel said that what the vets were doing was borderline treasonous, and then closed with:
If I were them – I assume they are out of the military now – they ought to take their benefits and go home.
It’s no surprise that a liberal like Bob would look at a Navy SEAL and think of the “benefits” the government provides them when they exit the service. It never occurs to Bob that maybe these guys have a fidelity to the constitution and a love for their country that runs to the bone. They don’t give a shit about “benefits” Bob, because guys who become Navy SEALs and Special Ops are selfless warriors who risk their lives for the freedom of stupid boobs like you to spout off.
Bob Beckel’s suspenders must be really, really tight — so much so that they’re cutting off circulation to his brain. What kind of sick soul would accuse Navy SEALs of “borderline treason” because they’re ticked off at national security leaks? Contrary to what Bob says, no one is saying the president is “intentionally” trying to endanger SEALs. What is being said is that President Obama — or people very close to him — care more about his re-election than the safety and security of our fighting men and women in the field. That is a fact. That is what Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., knows and what every other intellectually honest individual is willing to say on the record.
It wasn’t the Navy SEALs who publicly admitted to Stuxnet — it was the Obama administration. It wasn’t the Navy SEALs who disclosed the existence of the “kill list” — it was the Obama administration. It wasn’t the Navy SEALs who disclosed sensitive data about the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden hours after it happened — it was the Obama administration. Bob Beckel doesn’t get it, because like most of the Beltway crowd he only sees the world through a political lens.
Duty. Honor. Country. Sadly, those are words without real meaning to men like Bob Beckel, not because he’s a bad person, but because he’s just not very bright.
Bob Beckel went off the deep end long ago, so I don’t expect him to listen to what our soldiers and CIA agents have to say — but if you get a chance, check out “Dishonorable Disclosure.”
