A recent article on the killing of Qassem Soleimani had far too much detail to be safe. Someone gave access to a guy they thought had the credibility to put this out without burning them. Now both US units and certainly our Kurdish allies will suffer. The mention of Kurdish units being involved in the mission itself will  quite likely result in reprisals from Iran against Kurds either in Iran or elsewhere. Even if the regime knew about Kurdish involvement having their noses rubbed in it publicly will push them to retaliate.

The author Jack Murphy was a Ranger who now fancies himself a journalist and seems seems to have forgotten what keeps our troops and allies safe. Apparently he feels that outing operationally significant information about a highly-classified mission is good. Mainly because it gets you head pats from the people on the Left who like to pretend spilling classified information is the same as “transparency”. It is most assuredly not

It is unsurprising this came out during a Leftist administration in the same way details of the bin Laden raid did during Obama’s term. Dems don’t value the military and only use it for their own purposes. Biden and the terror-coddling members of his foreign policy and national security team did not approve of the Soleimani op and now they are kissing up to the Iranian regime again.

This whole thing smacks of an information op by the Biden team to hurt allies who helped Trump and show the Iranians they are going to play ball. That probably means they are loading pallets of $$$ on planes to ship top the Mullahs as we speak. Shameful all the way around.

For the uninitiated, Blue Falcon is a euphemism for Buddy F**ker which is someone who screws over comrades in arms for his own benefit.
