I realize that many Americans are not old enough to remember the “Loose Lips Sink Ships” posters of World War II, but it seems as if many of our politicians have gone totally in the wrong direction on the matter of national security.
USMC Life posted the following article yesterday:
Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, has a son in the Marines. And he’s getting ready to deploy — today apparently.
Clinton spoke at a VFW Convention saying, “My running mate in this election is a wonderful man from Virginia named Tim Kaine. He’s a US Senator, he was governor of Virginia, mayor of Richmond, Virginia… His son is a Marine. His son is actually deploying today, to help defend our NATO allies in Europe.” See 7:20 in YouTube below for the sequence.
So now the enemies of America have the date and location of these troops, putting a target on them overseas.
A few days earlier, one of Kaine’s aides told reporters Saturday that Lt Kaine was deploying to Europe on Monday, according to CNN. Kaine followed up saying his son was helping “to uphold America’s commitment to our NATO ally,” according to the news source.
It seems Kaine needs to attend OPSEC classes as well and national news organizations have posted the information since he relayed it.
Didn’t Clinton and Kaine read the directions?
