This administration didn't.
Capture or kill or eliminated -- line or anybody else.
Then there was wanton disregard.
-- leaked information deliberately or otherwise and that led to the identification.
Of the outstanding doctor that helped us in achieving our goals and join -- on.
That makes it almost impossible to recruit other human -- -- it was more than stupid because -- was done with its fourth.
That was done for political purposes.
That is a quick look at new documentary called dishonorable disclosures created by the -- sex education fund which is made up of former US intelligence and special forces operatives.
Joining -- now president of the group former navy seal Scott Taylor thank you sir for joining us and thank you for your service first ball.
My pleasure thank you very much for having me tell us a little bit about this -- and why your putting it out now.
Shore -- of -- -- by Sam this group and I'm just one of many on this we don't see recognition airing things like that at all.
We're simply just tired and fed up of all the these leaks that have gone out.
Now the reason why the group of special forces delta forces.
Former intelligence officials Navy SEALs have gotten together and decided to release -- this time is because this is the only time quite frankly when politicians pay attention.
-- when they're.
There -- elections.
And we're looking a little bit of the documentary they're -- can see it common.
I know that there are plans at least haven't told you can confirm or deny this that that this will be made also into television ads that -- air.
In key states during this election is that still the plan.
You know yes ma'am it is and and again.
This is that the timing is key because it's the -- and politicians pay pay attention with the potential political lives -- state.
And these key states there -- of the nation is going to be paying attention so absolutely again this.
This group doesn't seek recognition.
We're just set up with the amount of leaks from the highest levels of government.
Law the matter highly and men and women are highly organized as you would imagine special operations intelligence -- officials to be.
Very motivated and we really believe in what we're doing.
I haven't -- instead it's you answer some of your critics here it's no secret the U ran for congress as a Republican.
I and there are those who say that this is nothing but a partisan attack that's the response we've gotten from Democrats who say this is swift boating essentially -- when he twelve.
-- your response to those claims sure.
It certainly doesn't take much in investigative journalism to see that I am personally a Republican but this issue isn't held a political issue it's a life or death issue.
And in our group.
We have Obama donors Obama voters we have folks from all sides of the aisle who really just believe in what they're saying and and they believe very.
That these potential leaks could -- future operations and putting their Brothers and sisters lives at -- On day in.
To take out bin Laden and other times and he has praised the military.
Does that offset some of the worries you have about leaks which the White House has denied many of leaks have have come from there -- levels and come from their ranks.
Do you appreciate at least the chance that he's taken to -- those who revolves.
Yes absolutely let me say we appreciate our respect -- the the president and his position.
He deserves credit for for the -- and as it would any president who would resume preside over this type of operation.
But again these these leaks have obviously -- some of the highest levels in government because the -- that security and classified information works its its compartmentalize.
It -- a finite amount of people who who know about the potential operations.
And in those two par compartmentalize groups it had to come from from somewhere from the highest levels that's pretty obvious and I think the American public.
Understands that that leaks are bad regardless of what political persuasion that you are.
Howell do you think it will impact operations moving forward.
It's certainly gonna -- I mean.
Again it's very simple to understand it whether you're fighting a war play a game of basketball or chests.
You obviously don't want your opponent to understand your strategy because they'll switch up tactics is gonna be just some of these -- are gonna make it difficult for us to recruit sources which sometimes takes years to to develop.
It's also gonna hinder the hurt the trust that our allies -- placed in us -- we can't -- seekers and exposing some of the countries that work with us and some of these mission.
It is called it dishonorable disclosures we will watch and see as well the television ads -- roll out a little bit later this year.
Scott Taylor thank you very much for explaining what's going on with this project.
Thank you for have.
