The killing of Osama bin Laden, seen by President Barack Obama’s aides as his biggest advantage in his re-election campaign, is already being used against him in an ad reminiscent of the so-called ‘Swiftboating’ of John Kerry in 2004.
A group called Veterans for a Strong America released the ad, entitled ‘Credit’, in response to an Obama campaign ad featuring President Bill Clinton that asked whether Mitt Romney would have taken the decision to take out the al Qaeda leader. The group is led by Joel Arends, a lawyer who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and who also worked for the Bush campaign in 2000 and the McCain campaign in 2008.
It came after criticism from serving and former US Navy SEALs of Obama’s politicising of the bin Laden on the first anniversary of the SEAL Team Six operation in which he was killed. After the campaign ad was put out, Obama travelled in elaborate secrecy to Afghanistan to deliver a televised address to Americans. He was on the ground for just six hours under cover of darkness during a trip that left taxpayers with a bill of at least $467,000 in Air Force One flight costs alone.
Operation Eagle Claw was an American military operation ordered by President Jimmy Carter to attempt to put an end to the Iran hostage crisis by rescuing 52 Americans held captive at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran on 24 April 1980. Its failure, and the humiliating public debacle that ensued, damaged American prestige worldwide and is believed by many, including Carter himself, to have played a major role in his defeat in the 1980 presidential election.en.wikipedia.org...
