Obama on SEALs’ anger at Security Leaks: ‘I don’t take (them) too seriously’

Last week, we posted the video featuring Navy SEALS and intelligence officials who are not happy with the national security leaks that are taking place under the current Obama administration. President Obama was asked about the concerns of the individuals behind the film and doesn’t appear to be all that impressed.


President Obama said Monday that he isn’t too worried about two groups of military veterans running campaign ads against him.

Last week, two groups — Special Operations Speaks and Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund – formed to criticize Obama on national security policy, the Osama bin Laden raid and intelligence leaks.

“I don’t take these folks too seriously. One of their members is a birther who denies I was born here, despite evidence to the contrary,” Obama told The Virginian-Pilot. “You’ve got another who was a tea party candidate in a recent election.”

“This kind of stuff springs up before election time,” Obama said.

Again, here is the video from OPSEC, one of the two groups referred to in the POLITICO article. This video is entitled “Dishonorable Disclosures”:
