Former intelligence operatives have issued a video and also plan TV ads, complaining about national security leaks in the Obama Administration.

As one of them says, "Mr. President, you did not kill Osama bin Laden. America did. The work that the American military has done killed Osama bin Laden. You did not."

He adds, "As a citizen, it is my civic duty to tell the president to stop leaking information to the enemy. It will get Americans killed."

They note that the White House revealed sources, methods, and even the name of the dog that was used in the raid. Also leaked was the story of the computer virus used by Israel and the USA to delay Iran's nuclear weapon program.

The soldiers say now is the only time people will pay attention to their video. President Obama's campaign says it's obviously done for political reasons.
