The guy behind the very LYING video attacking our President regarding the death of Osama Bin Laden is a Birther, Teaparty Republican and a 9/11 conspiracy theorist. Based on his facebook page, Benjamin Smith is demented and very ill. Perhaps he has PTSD.
His Facebook page rails on and on about various conspiracy theories. In the video, Smith is red faced, angry, spewing lies and distortions.
All of his allegations have been proven FALSE by Snopes, Politifact, New American Foundation and other independent agencies. He retired from the Navy Seals several years ago and wasn't even in service during the Osama Bin Laden raid, yet, in the Conspiracy video, he acts as if he was there. (shameful!)
Many active and current members of the Navy Seals and those ACTUALLY THERE have denounced Smith's actions saying the Navy Seals DO NOT talk negatively about OUR PRESIDENT! They said: "Some special operations officers say the activist veterans are breaking a sacred military creed: respect for the commander in chief. "This is an unprofessional, shameful action on the part of the operators that appear in the video, period," U.S. Army Special Forces Maj. Fernando Lujan wrote on his Facebook page, to a chorus of approval from colleagues.
A Green Beret who returned last year from Afghanistan, Lujan says that attaching the title of special operator with any political campaign is "in violation of everything we've been taught, and the opposite of what we should be doing, which is being quiet professionals."
As one reporter noted about Smith: "To be blunt, these are not the words of a calm-minded nonpartisan military professional offering his expert judgment to the American people. They are the unhinged rantings of a racist zealot enlisted to serve as a frontman for the real money and brains behind the effort, whom OPSEC refuses to disclose."
Smith was a friend of another conspiracy theorist and agitator, Andrew Breitbart.
