Navy SEAL Ad Ravages Obama: ‘Politics Before Patriotism?’

THE WEEKLY STANDARD has obtained this new political ad that knocks President Obama for saying the al Qaeda terrorist attack in Libya is a bump in the road.

The thirty-second spot will soon be airing in the battleground state of Virginia, and possibly elsewhere. It is courtesy of Special Operations OPSEC PAC, which is made up of former military and intelligence officials.

“President Obama wanted credit after our military killed bin Laden,” the ad’s narrator says. “Highly classified secrets were leaked, endangering real heroes and their families. But when terrorists killed SEALs and diplomats in Libya, this administration does not tell the truth about what happened. And the president says, it’s just a bump in the road. There is nothing acceptable about playing politics with national security and American lives. Aren’t some things more important than politics?”

The closing video text asks: “Politics before patriotism?”
