Military Heroes Disavow Vindman As Utter ‘Disgrace For Undermining POTUS’

Robert O’Neill, the Navy Seal who shot Osama bin Laden, and Mark Geist, who is the Benghazi hero and a Marine Corps. veteran, are some of the United States military heroes who are now on the record about Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. The consensus of this esteemed group is that Vindman is an “utter disgrace for undermining the president of the United States.” But that’s not all. You don’t want to miss this.

During yesterday’s impeachment hearing, social media lit up with military men and women who found Alexander Vindman a disgrace to those who have served our great nation. Robert O’Neill and Mark Geist were extremely disturbed by his testimony and found no problem in calling him out.

Mark “Oz” Geist is one of the lucky Benghazi heroes who made it out alive. Geist finished his career as a security contractor in Benghazi, Libya, where he was credited with helping to save the lives of more than 25 Americans even though he sustained extensive injuries. He co-authored the book “13 Hours” which was made into a major motion picture.

Yesterday as he watched Vindman, he tweeted: “Vindman is a disgrace to all who have served. Transcript of his previous closed-door testimony he clearly admits to undermining the @POTUS foreign policy and now he has chairman Schiff advising him on how to answer questions. @codeofvets #treason #traitor #POS #conductunbecoming.”

Then, there is Rob O’Neill, the Navy Seal who we all owe a debt of gratitude for killing Osama bin Laden. He also strongly disavowed Vindman. O’Neill re-tweeted a post by Carl Bigbie: “How about a dishonorable discharge for #Vindman Conduct unbecoming, Lying under oath, Undermining @POTUS on foreign policy.”

O’Neill also posted a response to Donald Trump Jr., “I agree. I wish the left wouldn’t use his uniform to make him a saint. He’s an operative with an agenda.” Trump Jr.’s post reads, “Anyone listening to Vindman stammer through this seemingly trying to remember the Catch Phrases he was well-coached on should get that.”

This United States Airforce veteran of 21 years also voiced his disgust of Vindman. “I was a back up for a witness in a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing in 1991. Sat behind him during the hearing. Requiring someone use your rank when they address you, even if its a Senator or Representative, or any civilian for that matter is wrong. This guy is a tool,” tweeted “Flyboy7798.”

Formal Naval Officer Tom Quinn tweeted, “I was an officer and I rolled my eyes. One’s rank isn’t an honorific. It’s a job. Scolding civilians for not referring to you by your rank is the opposite of what that job entails.”

Veteran John Gabriel, who is also the Editor-in-Chief of Ricochet, also found Vindman repulsive. “Had a Lt. on our sub like this. His senior officers would regularly humiliate him in front of enlisted to take him down a notch. No one likes these guys,” he tweeted.

The problems with Alexander Vindman’s testimony were many. Transcripts of the closed-door testimony of Tim Morrison, former Russia and Europe director at the National Security Council, released Saturday by the House Intelligence Committee, revealed that Morrison had reservations about Vindman.

He was concerned Vindman would “not exercise appropriate judgment as to whom he would say what.” and that when Morrison informed Vindman he wouldn’t be included in a trip to Ukraine, he made sure to have a witness in the room for that conversation.

Morrison further testified that Vindman was apparently concerned that not being included on the trip would make him less effective “because he would be seen by the interagency as not being relevant.”

In his closed-door testimony last month, Vindman had made reference to the “interagency consensus” about Ukraine policy—specifically, that the policies President Trump was pursuing through Rudy Giuliani, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, EU ambassador Gordon Sondland and others related to corruption in Ukraine ran counter to the “interagency consensus.”

It was this arrogance that caused everyone in Vindman’s sphere to be leery of him. Indeed, Vindman had an agenda and it ran contrary to the duly elected president of the United States.

As we reported yesterday, Vindman heard the July 25 call, and instead of taking his complaints up the chain of command, he goes to this whistleblower and leaks the contents, which is against the law. Then, the whistleblower goes to Schiff’s staff and they all conspire to set Trump up.

It begs the question where was Vindman during this setup?

It’s hard to imagine Vindman had no idea what the whistleblower and Schiff’s staff was doing with the information he gave them, especially since Vindman was so upset Trump wasn’t doing what he “advised” even though he never spoke to the president.

No one likes a liar and a leaker. Unfortunately, there are times when military personnel become an utter disgrace to the uniform they wear. This is why so many honorable veterans of this great nation spoke out and are warning us about Alexander Vindman.
