Anti-Obama Navy SEAL leader admits belief in ‘birther’ conspiracy

Published

on

A new anti-Obama Navy SEAL group called Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund was created by a man who believes the president is secretly a socialist communist foreign-born interloper, or so he told Foreign Policy Magazine.

The “OPSEC” group claims it is “non-partisan,” and accuses President Obama of taking too much credit for ordering the operation that killed terrorist financier and spiritual leader Osama bin Laden. But the national media put the brakes on that claim Friday with OPSEC founder Larry Bailey’s admission to FP and a CNN broadcast featuring a thorough deconstruction of the group’s spokesman.

“I have to admit that I’m a Birther,” Bailey reportedly told FP in an exclusive interview. “If there were a jury of 12 good men and women and the evidence were placed before them, there would be absolutely no question Barack Obama was not born where he said he was and is not who he says he is.”

Bailey added that he believes the president’s father was secretly the famed African-American journalist and poet Frank Marshall Davis, who’s mentioned in Obama’s book “Dreams From my Father” as one of his dad’s old drinking buddies. The same theory is commonly espoused by World Net Daily conspiracy columnist Jerome Corsi and followers of his writing.

President Obama released his short-form birth certificate from the state of Hawaii before running for the nation’s highest office, and ultimately released his long-form certificate as well (found here in PDF form) after months of hounding by billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump, who’s since become a Romney campaign surrogate.

Both forms were were verified authentic by Hawaii officials, and notices published in local newspapers were also found in public records archives bearing Obama’s birth announcement on August 4, 1961.

Prior the release of President Obama’s long-form birth certificate, CBS News and The New York Times determined that 45 percent of Republicans believed the birther conspiracy. Polling after the long-form certificate’s release showed that Obama’s move cut the number of birthers roughly in half.

“I know that there’s going to be a segment of people for which, no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest,” the president told reporters last April. “We don’t have time for this kind of silliness. We have better stuff to do. I have better stuff to do.”

Barr, who called the prosecution 'righteous' in an interview Wednesday with ABC News, the official said, adding that those pushing Trump to show loyalty to Stone included Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), who is close to the president," The Washington Post reported Saturday.
