A group of former special forces and intelligence operatives are set to launch a series of television advertisements criticizing President Barack Obama for 'taking credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden', Reuters reported Wednesday.
The group, dubbed OPSEC Education Fund Inc., is led by former Va. Beach Congressional hopeful Scott Taylor, according to the report.
Taylor is an ex-Navy SEAL and ran unsuccessfully for the GOP nomination for the 2nd Congressional District in 2010. Taylor placed 4th out of 6 candidates, behind eventual winner U.S. Rep. Scott Rigell, R-Virginia Beach. Taylor also made an unsuccessful bid for Virginia Beach mayor in 2008. He has been a frequent critic of the Administration's handling of the aftermath of the Bin Laden raid.
The group, which bills itself as non-partisan, also criticizes the Obama administration for a series of classified leaks which they said jeopardizes special forces security, the report said.
