(The Hill) – According to a report from Reuters, the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund plans to spend around $1 million on a swing-state ad blitz targeting President Obama.
In a short film set to be released Wednesday, members of the group look to undermine Obama’s foreign policy credentials.
“Mr. President, you did not kill Osama bin Laden, America did. The work that the American military has done killed Osama bin Laden. You did not,” Ben Smith, identified as a Navy SEAL, says in the film, viewed in advance by the wire service.
“As a citizen, it is my civic duty to tell the president to stop leaking information to the enemy. It will get Americans killed.”
The film goes on to criticize the president over recent intelligence disclosures about secret drone strikes and cyberattacks on Iran’s nuclear program. Those leaks have come under major fire from congressional Republicans, and the group said commercials hitting that theme will air in Virginia, Florida, Ohio, Colorado, North Carolina and Nevada.

(Huff Post) July 19, 2012 – Ryan Zinke, a GOP state senator and former Navy SEAL commander, announced the launch of a new super PAC this week, designed to oppose President Barack Obama. Zinke currently serves in Montana’s state legislature.
Zinke has criticized Obama similarly in the past, claiming earlier in the year that the president’s decision to use the successful bin Laden mission as a “political tool” to attack GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney was inappropriate.
With the creation of his new political body, Zinke has been speaking out again about Obama’s handling of the bin Laden mission and the military in general.
“It’s time to stop President Obama from negotiating away our freedoms and our ability to win on the battlefield,” Zinke told the Daily Inter Lake.
Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)(4) group. The group’s president is former Navy SEAL Scott Taylor, who failed to win a Republican nomination for a Virginia congressional seat in 2010. Because its primary purpose is to further the common good, the group doesn’t have to disclose who is funding it to the public.
