The Biden White House made an unpardonable error.
He exposed critical data that should never have been released.
Joe Biden put lives in danger with this one picture he made public.
President Joe Biden posted a photo of himself meeting with U.S. troops in Israel before quickly deleting the photo which revealed the soldiers’ identities.
The caption of the post read: “In Israel, President Biden met with first responders to thank them for their bravery and the work they’re doing in response to the Hamas terrorist attacks.”
The post was up for an hour and viewed hundreds of thousands of times before being removed, despite violating rules set by the Department of Defense to keep the faces and names of special ops secret.
“As soon as this was brought to our attention, we immediately deleted the photo,” a White House spokesman told the Daily Mail.
“We regret the error and any issues this may have caused.”
The Biden administration sent members of the Delta Force, a special mission’s unit of the U.S. military whose missions are highly classified, to Israel last week to help “their Israeli counterparts on every aspect of the hostage crisis, including sharing intelligence and deploying experts from across the United States government.”
David Cook, the executive director for the Special Operations Association of America, told the Daily Caller on Thursday that the security breach put the lives of the operators in danger.
I don’t even know what to say. These are horrible operational security failures,” Cook said.
“The risk is high. These guys that got pictured, it could ruin their careers. They could put their families in danger. It could put them in danger,” Cook.
The faces of four operators were shown and included other identifying details. The Department of Defense typically blurs the images of elite U.S. military forces to protect their identities.
“Whoever took the picture needs to be held accountable,” Cook continued. “These kind of gaffes happen every once in a while … that’s why SOAA exists, to educate policymakers and people who’ve never been in the community what the sensitivity is around the mission and why special operators are deployed downrange all year round or not.”
Cook noted that it was also a propaganda win for Hamas.
Alec Sears, a member of the Republican National Committee, tweeted, “So funny that the ‘Adults in charge’ are so on top of things they doxxed one of our most elite fighting forces in the midst of their deployment to the Middle East.”
