SOS – Special Operations Speaks

Special Operations Speaks

From this group’s website

MISSION STATEMENT of Special Operations Speaks:

We, as veterans, legatees, and supporters of the Special Operations communities of all the Armed Forces, have noted with dismay and deep alarm the recent stream of highly damaging leaks of information about various aspects of America’s shadow war in the overall War on Terror.  Our principles are the same as when we were in active service — Duty, Honor, Country.

Our goals are:

  • To emphasize the pressing need for the nation and its representatives to understand the value of our Constitution and actively support a return to its application in all phases of government;
  • To illuminate the failed operational security environment of the Administration and to provide the public with accurate information about these repeated releases of highly classified information;
  • To restore accountability in government and with it the trust in our government that We The People deserve and demand.

The obama Regime’s Media Minions Blackout Marine Corps Worse Squadron Disaster Since Vietnam

September 24, 2012 Leave a comment

[TWG: No surprise obama’s media minions have blacked this out.  The glassy eyed obamazombie marxists could care less about our Veterans and about the harm obama has inflicted upon them.  Their newest scheme is posing as caring “Veteran” supporters while labeling them ALL with PTSD in order to disarm them.  It makes me sick to my stomach to see ANY Veteran supporting this marxist regime. They are traitors to this nation and Her citizens, but most of all they are traitors to all Veterans who’ve ever fighted against communism, fascism and dictatorial tyrants.  If you’re a Veteran who’s supporting obama and his team of anti-America marxists, YOU ARE A MARXIST AND A DISHONORABLE, DESPICABLE TRAITOR NOT WORTHY OF RESPECT.]

Untold Loss: Media Blackout on Military Disaster on Obama’s Watch

By Kim Zigfeld

Under the leadership of Barack H. Obama, though hardly noticed by the pro-Obama mainstream media, the U.S. Marine Corps has suffered its worst air squadron catastrophe since Vietnam, and its prized VMA-211 squadron has taken its worst hit since its defense of Wake Island in World War II.

It happened on September 14, 2012, northwest of the city of Lashkar Gah in southern Afghanistan.  A team of fewer than two dozen Taliban fighters attacked the USMC’s massive Camp Bastion base there, killing VMA-211 squadron commander Lt. Col. Christopher Raible and destroying or permanently disabling eight of the ten top-of-the-line harrier AV-8B attack aircraft stationed under him.  Out of production for more than a decade, these aircraft can never be replaced.

Marine police training response ignores civilian rights concerns

September 6, 2012 3 comments

 

Inquiries about police personnel training with United States Marines have resulted in a boilerplate response that glosses over civil liberties concerns and fails to acknowledge and address specific questions about those operations, a September 5 letter from USMC Public Affairs shows. The letter, signed by N. G. Fahy, Camp LeJeune Director, Public Affairs, states “The decision to hire civilian police officers into the armed forces was made in order to free up our trained military policemen to deploy without having to sacrifice security at home.”

The policing of military installations was not the concern raised by citizens inquiring into domestic operations. What Fahy wrote next was.

“In return, their civilian counterparts would be integrated alongside Marine military policemen to provide security and policing within the continental US as a blended force,” he revealed….(Con’t)

AGAIN, Veterans Get The Middle Finger From The obama Regime.


[TWG Note: Just when I thought I couldn’t HATE that marxist bastard son of a whore any more than I do now, he pulls THIS. The obama regime continues to stick “it” to our Veterans, with nary a whimper from said Veterans. Most of our returning Veterans are being systematically labled with so-called “PTSD” before they even step foot back on our soil, pumped up with drugs and, as a result, DISARMED.  The so-called “Veterans” groups are popping up everywhere, but when one looks into who’s behind them, it’s soros and obama’s klan.  Our Veterans are being used and abused here, treated as nothing more than pawns in the game by this obama regime.  It makes me SICK to see ANY Veteran supporting those marxist pigs. Especially when we see articles such as this one.  HOW MANY TIMES DOES THIS OBAmA REGIME NEED TO SCREW YOU OVER BEFORE YOU OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE THIS REGIME FOR WHAT THEY ARE?!?!?!?!  First obama cuts $500 BILLION from seniors and disabled, and now he wants to cut $500 BILLION from Veterans healthcare.  obama and the rest of his horrid regime (INCLUDING STATE GOVERNMENTS)  parade our Veterans, police, firefighters and teachers whenever they want to steal more money to line their own coffers.  VETERANS…. WAKE UP.  Don’t allow them to label you with a non-existent mental issue if you are not suffering from such.  YOU ARE BEING DISARMED ON A MASSIVE SCALE.  With PTSD and the drugs they’re pushing, you will NEVER regain your Second Amendment rights.  obama’s thug at DHS already labeled you Veterans as potential “Domestic Terrorists”.  They don’t want YOU owning or carrying firearms.  WAKE UP, VETERANS.  You are being used and abused by the obama regime.  Our Veterans shouldn’t have to pay ONE PENNY toward their healthcare….EVER.]

The Obama administration on Friday threatened to veto a defense appropriations bill in part because it does not include higher health care fees for members of the military.

“The Administration is disappointed that the Congress did not incorporate the requested TRICARE fee initiatives into either the appropriation or authorization legislation,” the White House wrote in an official policy statement expressing opposition to the bill, which the House approved in May……(Con’t)

obama Regime Committed To Hiking TRICARE Fees, Veterans Continue To Support His Regime


[TWG Note: obama and his dim grunts…. sticking it to our Veterans…. AGAIN.  Yet many of our Veterans will support them anyway.  Sure wish those Veterans would OPEN THEIR EYES. Any Veteran who would support marxist obama and his socialist/marxist/communist FASCIST regime is a TRAITOR. Their fellow Veterans from wars past did not fight FOR fascism. They fought AGAINST fascism.]

 

WH Committed to TRICARE Fee Hikes

May 16, 2012 | Terry Howell

The House Armed Services Committee recently forwarded the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2013 (HR4310) to the full House for a vote. The bill added back many of the cuts proposed by the White House, and ignored the DoD’s request to increase TRICARE Fees for military retirees. (Read the original post)

While most expect it to pass in the House, it is also assumed that the Senate will not pass the current version. And, of course the President would surely veto it if it happened to make it through the Senate. On Wednesday the Office of Management and Budget that confirmed that the President would veto the bill. The OMB statement states, “If the cumulative effects of the bill impede the ability of the Administration to execute the new defense strategy and to properly direct scarce resources, the President’s senior advisors would recommend to the President that he veto the bill.”

The OMB’s  ”Statement of Administration Policy” responded to the House bill,  declaring the administration’s “disappointment” with the House for not supporting their budget recommendations. The report highlights specific sections of the HR 4310 that differ from their plan, such as limits to the reduction in forces, BRAC, missile defense, and limitations on reduction of nuclear forces, to name a few.

One of the areas we have been watching closely on the Military Advantage is the proposal to hike TRICARE fees. The statement makes it clear that the WH is committed to using the fee increases to make TRICARE sustainable.

The following is an excerpt from the OMB statement:

TRICARE Fees and Co-Payments:  The Administration agrees that retirees deserve a quality health care benefit.  For this very reason, the Administration strongly supports its requested TRICARE fee initiatives that seek to control the spiraling health care costs of the Department of Defense (DOD) while keeping retired beneficiaries’ share of these costs well below the levels experienced when the TRICARE program was implemented in the mid-1990s.  The projected FY 2013 TRICARE savings of $1.8 billion and $12.9 billion through FY 2017 are essential for DOD to successfully address rising personnel costs.  DOD needs these savings to balance and maintain investments for key defense priorities.  The Administration is very disappointed that the Committee did not support the proposed TRICARE fee increases and included section 718, which, while supporting some fee increases, caps them at levels below those allowed under current law and below the requested authorization.  If section 718 remains in the bill, it would only provide five year savings of $2.6 billion.”

Let your elected official know what you think about this issue.
