FOLLOWING DEBATE EXCHANGE ON BENGHAZI, NEW OPSEC AD AIRING IN CINCINNATI HITS OBAMA ADMINISTRATION FOR NOT TELLING THE TRUTH ON LIBYA ATTACKS
"Bump In The Road" Ad Asks "Aren't Some Things More Important Than Politics?"
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- OPSEC has begun airing an ad titled "Bump In The Road" in the Cincinnati market, hitting the Obama Administration for not telling the truth about the attacks in Libya that cost the U.S. Ambassador, two former SEALs and another U.S. diplomat their lives while also having politicized the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
"President Obama wanted credit after our military killed bin Laden. Highly classified secrets were leaked, endangering real heroes and their families. But when terrorists killed SEALs and diplomats in Libya, this administration does not tell the truth about what happened," says Scott Taylor, former Navy SEAL and president of OPSEC, in narrating the ad. "The president says, it's just a bump in the road. There is nothing acceptable about playing politics with national security and American lives. Aren't some things more important than politics?"
The thirty-second ad began running in Cincinnati around the second Presidential debate as part of an impactful buy in the run-up to the election. "Bump in the Road" follows the earlier release of Dishonorable Disclosures, a documentary short film that views the impact of the increasing number of leaks by the Obama Administration on Intelligence and Special Operations missions, tradecraft, tactics and capabilities from the perspective of those who have relied on these tools to carryout similar missions and protect themselves and those they served alongside.
Since its release on August 15, Dishonorable Disclosures has been viewed more than 4 million times and tens of thousands of Americans have signed up as fans of the film. Both the ad and the film can be seen at the OPSEC YouTube page
OPSEC, a group of former Intelligence officers and Special Operations members, previously released the film "Dishonorable Disclosures," a documentary short film that views the impact of the increasing number of leaks on Intelligence and Special Operations missions, tradecraft, tactics and capabilities from the perspective of those who have relied on these tools to carryout similar missions and protect themselves and those they served alongside. The film is being shown in ads and at events and in advertising in key states across the country over the next several months, including Virginia, Florida, Ohio, Colorado, North Carolina and Nevada.
