Navy SEAL: White House should not have revealed any information about failed rescue mission
(CNN) – Before American journalist James Foley was executed by the terrorists known as ISIS, the militants had tried to squeeze a ransom out of the United States, asking for more than $130 million in exchange for his life, according to Foley's former employer, the GlobalPost.

The U.S. has a policy of not negotiating with terrorists.

The White House said there was a rescue attempt to save Foley and other ISIS hostages, a special operation that was launched early this summer that ultimately failed.

"This was a flawless operation, but the hostages were not there, so we'll do everything we need to do, to continue get our hostages back," Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said Thursday.

But Daniel O'Shea, a reserve Navy SEAL officer who served as the coordinator for the hostage working group at the U.S. embassy in Iraq, says the White House should not be revealing any information about the operation at all.

"Releasing information about classified operations serves no tactical nor strategic value. It certainly doesn't help those folks who have to launch future missions," said O'Shea.

"I'm at a loss of words why there's so much information coming out, even after the fact that," he says.

Everyone who has at least two brain cells must realize that now they will move every couple of days.

Also they can set up false info. That is they can tell everyone in the camp that the Americans are here. And then wait to see if they are attacked.
 
If they are, they kill every surviving member of the camp.

Obama is more White than what 'White' is. He is so out of touch, he doesn't understand anything, as far as I can tell.
 
He does not know international politics.
He does not know economics.
He does not know business.
He does not know "Law".
He certainly does not know anything about 'Military'.
 
What does he know?
 
Who is he? And why is he President?
 
I have known 7-11 clerks who would be one thousand time more "President" than this guy.

I'm coming to believe more and more they revel in our failures.
Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

It becomes more and more difficult every day to believe they are not in collusion with our enemies.

It's now, IMO, straining credulity to believe that Obama wants America to survive.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

If you ever turn on and listen to Leftist talk radio, that's exactly what they do. The American soldier represents American exceptionalism and strength, and that they hate. So yes they revel in our failures. And why would their leader, not do the same. If not in public, then deep inside.
