"Bump In The Road" Ad To Run During Broadcast, Asks "Aren't Some Things More Important Than Politics?"

WASHINGTON, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- OPSEC will air ads in key battleground markets during the broadcast of National Geographic's "Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden" on November 4th after reporting by the New York Times and other media outlets disclosed that the timing and editing of the film by Obama mega-donor Harvey Weinstein were orchestrated to use the heroic work of U.S. Special Operations Forces to promote President Obama's re-election.  The ad, "Bump In The Road" will hit the Obama Administration for not telling the truth about the attacks in Libya that cost the U.S. Ambassador, two former SEALs and another U.S. diplomat their lives while also having politicized the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

"There is nothing acceptable about playing politics with national security and American lives," says Scott Taylor, former Navy SEAL and president of OPSEC, in narrating the ad.  "Aren't some things more important than politics?"

The thirty-second ad will run during the Seal Team Six movie itself on the National Geographic Channel on local cable systems in Tampa, Orlando, Miami, Denver, Las Vegas, Charlotte, Raleigh, Cincinnati and Richmond.

"Bump in the Road" follows the earlier release of Dishonorable Disclosures, a documentary short film that views the impact of the increasing number of leaks by the Obama Administration on Intelligence and Special Operations missions, tradecraft, tactics and capabilities from the perspective of those who have relied on these tools to carryout similar missions and protect themselves and those they served alongside. 

Since its release on August 15, Dishonorable Disclosures has been viewed more than 4.7 million times and tens of thousands of Americans have signed up as fans of the film. Both the ad and the film can be seen at the OPSEC YouTube page.

OPSEC is a group of former Intelligence officers and Special Operations members concerned about the impact of the increasing number of leaks on Intelligence and Special Operations missions, tradecraft, tactics and capabilities.  In addition to the release of Dishonorable Disclosures, OPSEC is screening the film at events and in advertising in key states across the country, including Virginia, Florida, Ohio, Colorado, North Carolina and Nevada.  More information about OPSEC and news about the release of "Dishonorable Disclosures" can be found at www.OpSecTeam.org.
