Special Ops Veterans’ Facebook Page Suspended

Mark Zuckerberg‘s social networking gurus at Facebook seem to think the men and women of Special Operations Speaks, who’ve spent much of their lives fighting on behalf of their fellow Americans do not deserve the freedom to exercise the rights guaranteed them under the First Amendment — at least, not when that exercise involves criticizing President Barack Obama days before an election about his mishandling of and lying about Sept. 11 events in Benghazi, Libya.

On Saturday, a Benghazi-focused meme (above) was posted on the organization’s website by Political Media Inc. President Larry Ward, the man who handles SOS social media and publicity efforts. It’s message: “Obama called the SEALs and they got Bin Laden. When the SEALs called Obama, they got denied.”

Twenty-four hours later, Ward was informed by Facebook monitors that he had violated Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities with the meme. As a result, the SOS account was suspended for 24 hours. At last check, the meme is back up on the SOS Facebook page.

Before the election next Tuesday, please consider donating to Special Operations Speaks and spread the word about how Obama denied assistance to people on the ground, including one U.S. ambassador and two former Navy SEALs, in Benghazi.

FYI: I applaud the guys at Special Operations Speaks for taking a courageous stand on this issue and also for endorsing my book, “Three Days In August,” which chronicles the life and wrongful conviction of former Army Green Beret Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart. To learn more about the book, read this post on the SOS Noble Warriors webpage.

Bob McCarty is the author of “Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice,” a nonfiction book that’s available in paperback and ebook via most online booksellers, including Amazon.com. His second book, “The CLAPPER MEMO,” is set for release this fall.

  1. I’m glad Facebook reversed their decision and allowed the Special Operations’ post to stay.
