To Obama and Leakers: Shut The F Up About Seal Team 6, Secret Ops

From Denny: It's time for the excessive celebration to come to a complete halt over at the White House about the Bin Laden episode. Even I find it obnoxious how they continue leaking secret information about the Seal Team that carried out the raid on the Bin Laden compound.

Since the folks who occupy the White House never grew up in the military - or the intelligence community - it's about time someone clued them in on just how stupid and dangerous their leaks truly are.

Leaking this information is more than dangerous to the families and the warriors. It is also dangerous to those doing the leaking as it points a direct arrow at your house and your family. You are effectively placing a bullseye on your own back. How stupid can you get?

Here are your bullet points and cheat sheet for future reference:

* First of all, if you want to keep a secret organization effective it has to remain secret.

* Never reveal the names of the secret warriors.

* Never publish photos or video of the secret warriors.

* Never identify which branch of service of said warriors that carried out a specific mission.

* Never, never, never give the location of the base out of which said team operates.

* Never disclose where the family of said team lives.

* Never highlight politically on a warrior's tough work as if it were your own.

* Quite ticking me off with this childish excuse for governing wisely and risking the lives of spouses, children and the warriors.

From Sec. of Defense Gates during the time of the raid:  "We had reached an agreement that we would not talk about operational details. Frankly, a week ago Sunday, in the Situation Room, we all agreed that we would not release any operational details from the effort to take out bin Laden. That lasted about 15 hours."

Gates continued in exasperation to reporters, "I’m very concerned about this, because we want to retain the capability to carry out these kinds of operations in the future. When so much detail is available, it makes that both more difficult and riskier."

As a result, measures have been stepped up to protect the teams and their families. It's time the White House shut down their excessive celebration and get about the business of lowering fuel and food prices - and get the jobs situation righted in this chaotic economy.

Yes, "Shut the F Up!" to all you hotdogs at the White House. You are embarrassing the country. "Can you hear me now?"
