|Obama Exposes Navy Seals as 'Contractors'|

President Barack Obama continues to throw national security under the bus to help him get re-elected. The White House disclosed that it deploys members of the 'US Navy SEALs' to be identified as US State Department "contractors" to work as security at US consulates in the Middle East.
This puts them and all "contractors" working at US consulates located in the Middle East at strong risk of getting named on an 'assassin hit list' for radical Muslim terrorist groups to target.
The Houston Chronicle reports that, "the Pentagon comments came a day after senior U.S. intelligence officials detailed the CIA's rescue efforts, striking back at allegations they failed to respond quickly or efficiently against the deadly attack, which killed US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans."
The report identified two of the killed Americans as ex-Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glenn Doherty, who had initially been identified as "State Department contractors." At first the CIA didn’t want to disclose this information, but then President Barack Obama started to face more scrutiny over Benghazi.
According to the Houston Chronicle, "US officials are using the details to rebut some news reports that said the CIA told its personnel to 'stand down' rather than go to the consulate to help repel the attackers. Fox News reported that when CIA officers at the annex called higher-ups to tell them consulate was under fire, they were twice told to 'stand down.' The CIA publicly denied the report, laying out a timeline that showed CIA security officers left their annex and headed to the consulate less than 25 minutes after receiving the first call for help."

Please spare us, Obama. As a former Dem, I am tired of being told how smart and great you are. Hillary should be in your seat.

First, they WERE SEALs, past tense. When you get out of the military, you're out. They were in Libya working for a private company, so yes, they're contractors. This political BS needs to stop. You don't call a 20 yr. old a child, why do that with these guys?
