OPSEC Has a Birther and Pentagon Propagandists as Members

 
This new political group is putting an ad out similar to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth Campaign against John Kerry in 2004. The group is called Special Operations Opsec Education Fund Inc or OPSEC. Their target is President Obama. The group is made up of former special operations soldiers of CIA, special ops etc. Instant credibility right? Not so much. Immediately when I watched the 22 minute documentary, I recognized two men speaking as members of the group. What about the two? One is a proud birther and both participated in an illegal covert propaganda program which was known as the Pentagon Pundit Scandal.

The 22 minute video below:



Paul Valley: Birther, 
Pentagon Propagandist




Lets begin with the birther retired Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely.











I previously posted about this man back in 2011 when I read a statement he gave to the birther website World Net Daily. In a headline titled: Ex-CIA: 'Forged document' released as birth certificate, it said:
Retired Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, the chief of Stand Up America, a national security expert and Fox News contributor, says the “Certificate of Live Birth” released in April by the White House as “proof positive” of President Obama’s Hawaiian birth is a forgery, but the FBI is covering the fraud and no one in Congress is willing to tackle the situation because of fears of a “black backlash” if the failings of the nation’s first black president are revealed.
[...]
“We’ve had three CIA agents, retired, and some of their analytical associates look at it, and all came to the same conclusion, that even the long-form was a forged document,” Vallely said.
[...]
“No members of Congress will take this on. The word I get out of Washington is that they don’t want to challenge this because it would be in fact a felony offense and in some cases may be even treasonous and [they are] afraid of a black backlash from some of the urban areas,” Vallely said.

When I read his name an saw his image, I recognized him from the Pentagon Pundits Scandal along with the other general that is a member of OPSEC: Lt. Colonel Bill Cowan. Both men appear throughout the 22 minute video.

Bill Cowan: Pentagon Propagandist
The scandal involved a program that had pentagon operatives on the major network, cable, radio and print news outlets knowingly conspiring to echo administration talking points, sometimes even when they suspected the information was false or inflated. Also they were not disclosing they were consultants and lobbyists for military contractors. Corporate tycoons that are making money off the wars. This is known as "covert propaganda" and under Federal Law it is illegal. Both had been actively and knowingly participating in the Pentagon program by former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

Free Press had an excellent video covering and outlining the scandal:

 


Not only is this political group have discredited members but is simply echoing anti-Obama talking points that have either been debunked or are baseless.
 
Such as:
 
I can't guess the motives of the other members. I'm sure if they knew the background of the two men I just talked about, they'd want to make their statement elsewhere and not with this group.
