Ex-Officers Attack Obama Over National Security Leaks

A group of former special operations and C.I.A. officers started a campaign accusing President Obama of "recklessly leaking information about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden and other security matters to gain political advantage," the New York Times reports.

"The Obama campaign immediately compared the effort to the Swift Boat advertisements against Senator John Kerry in the 2004 presidential campaign. Like that effort, which attacked Mr. Kerry's military record in Vietnam, the Opsec site goes after Mr. Obama's strong points on national security --- specifically his role in overseeing the military-Central Intelligence Agency raid that killed Bin Laden, the founder of Al Qaeda, in May 2011."
