An American special forces operative who shot and killed the world’s most wanted terrorist, Osama bin Laden, during the dramatic SEAL Team Six sneak attack on al-Qaeda’s Pakistani compound, slammed House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff for turning a great day for the world as a result of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s killing in a secret operation in Syria.
“When I heard about the raid on al-Baghdadi and his minions, I was very pleased and proud of what our guys achieved I almost danced with joy until I heard that intellectually dishonest Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, complaining about not being notified prior to the super-secret mission,” said former Capt. Peter Ruskins, counter-terrorism unit commander.
“Does anyone believe the Democrats care about the lives of America’s military or law enforcement? Those Dems attempted to make the President look guilty with the help of their fellow travelers in the news media,” Ruskins said.
America’s Commander in Chief Donald Trump released reports of the successful raid on Sunday October 27, the day after it took place. The anti-Trump Democrats could not put aside their petty hatred for Trump’s successes and they and their news media propagandists complained that Trump failed to notify them in advance of the military operation.
When reporters questioned the president during press briefings, he answered that he did not notify top Congressional leaders in advance out of his fear of leaks especially by certain Democrats who have a history of leaking secrets to their allies in the news industry.
“Well, I guess the only thing is, they were talking about why didn’t I give the information to Adam Schiff and his committee. And the answer is because I think Adam Schiff is the biggest leaker in Washington,” Trump told reporters on Monday.
Surprisingly, the man who killed Osama bin Laden, retired U.S. Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill, made a similar comment in a Sunday, when the initial political blowback was taking place from Democrats who scolded == even demonized — Trump for not telling them about the raid in advance.
“If you’re the House Intel Chairman and are not told about the raid to kill the world’s #1 terrorist … you might be a leaker,” O’Neill tweeted.
“They were so smart about it,” O’Neill said, referring to the American troops in the raid.
“They knew going to the front door was probably booby-trapped so they went through a wall. They used their breachers, which is a method of entry. The guy or guys went in that way, and then just did what Delta [Force] does; they just got it on.”
“The raid was incredible. I was so proud. So proud,” O’Neill said.
During comments to TMZ, O’Neill said the death al-Baghdadi by Americans was a day to remember. (View accompanying videos below.)
“We should be proud as Americans. We should be proud as a coalition,” he said, calling the raid “a good op. I am so proud of them.”
Citing the deaths of those who fought the Islamic State group, O’Neill said the death of al-Baghdadi was “a day that we shall celebrate.”
“I’m just proud right now,” he said, adding that he was “a little jealous. I would have liked to have been there.”
O’Neill also had a message for political leaders, noting that bin Laden was killed under former President Barack Obama and al-Baghdadi under Trump.
“It’s not partisan. It’s America’s coalition. It’s everyone that’s doing it,” he said.
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, is known for his dishonest political tactics and his use of the chairmanship of the Intelligence Committee to conduct his own politically-motivated espionage. According to John LaGrosso, one would have to go back to the Reagan Administration at the height of the cold war to find a disturbing number of leaks “when Senator Patrick Leahy served on the Senate Intelligence Committee and he admitted he leaked info about Ronald Reagan’s intelligence operations.”
“It got to the point that ‘Leaky’ Leahy had to be thrown off that committee,” LaGrosso added.
