Ol’ “Two Bit” Pulls a Geraldo

Come on, you remember ol’ Patrick “Two Bit” McHenry?  You know, the guy who got all hot under the collar because some “Two Bit” security guard wouldn’t let him hit the gym?  Nevermind that security guard was, you know, keeping him safe.

Well, he’s at it again.

In the dust up over that little bit of nonsense, McHenry started pushing a video about how awesomely patriotic and tough he was.  Problem is, it violated OpSec (Operational Security for the uninitiated), and put American troops in danger.  Thorough at BlueNC has the goods:

The problem? The video violates OPSEC, and McHenry’s attempt at making himself look like he was in danger has now officially put real American lives in danger- and certainly some “Foreign Nationals” too. As written about in VetVoice, a Veteran’s blog, Patrick McHenry’s little ego trip has effectively put lives in danger and violated a rule that McHenry should know full well about.

The irony? Patrick McHenry has previously bashed ABC news and other groups for giving out key information online… just as he just did. In fact, he was quoted as saying the following:

In a carefully worded request, seven House GOP lawmakers led by Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., asked the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to “look into the releasing of sensitive information and its impact on the security of our nation, the performance of our government agencies, and the viability of our diplomatic relationships overseas.”

The awesomeness with this guy just doesn’t stop, does it?  Kinda reminds me of Geraldo during the first Gulf War where he got kicked straight out of the unit he was embedded in for drawing maps in the sand and describing troop movement.

I don’t ever again want to hear another single Republican tell me I embolden the enemy and put our troops in danger when guys like McHenry throw out OpSec to save their own asses.

  1. Right on, Kyle.
    What a dipsh*t.

    I’d let out a good old “beller” if people’s lives weren’t in danger…

    Peace,

  2. Er…

    Um…

    “Beller”?

    Totally not familiar with that. Of course, it is about time for me to go to bed, so that might have something to do with it.

  3. It’s an Ohio expression for guffaw. Bellowing laughter…

  4. AH! I did not know that.
