White House Accidentally Doxxes Special Forces Just For Biden Photo-Op
Are you serious?!
If we truly had a free, fair, and honest press, this would be the number 1 story across cable news right now.
The White House “accidentally” doxxed our Special Forces just so Biden could have a photo-op.
He is the Commander in Chief.
He’s supposed to lead them, to guide them, to protect them.
Yet he just literally jeopardized their lives by publishing their images online.
This essentially put bounties on their heads.
If it were President Trump, you know the media would be in an uproar.
Well, if it would be bad under Trump, it would be bad now.
And let me tell you, it’s bad right now.
Biden just doxxed the special forces team he sent to Israel to help free the hostages

That feeling in your gut when @Biden whitehouse DOX #DeltaForce and leave up for 1 hour after over 100K views they then delete it. We are so screwed when the President is more interested in PHOTO OPS than saving lives. #PrayForPeace pic.twitter.com/YfCkck7KAD

Even if it truly was an “accident,” then this really makes you wonder about their competence.
If you can’t get something as simple as a picture right, then how can you get something as complex as wartime strategy right?
Breitbart confirms the photo-op blunder:
The White House admitted to accidentally doxxing American Special Forces in Israel by posting a photo of their faces on Instagram this week, which put their safety at risk. The incident occurred after President Joe Biden’s visit to Israel, as the White House posted a photo of Biden meeting with special operators onto its Instagram account, which has 7.6 million followers.
The White House failed to blur or otherwise obscure the faces of the Special Forces — which could reveal their identities to adversaries and put their missions, their lives, and their families’ lives at risk. There were other markings visible that could also identify them, such as tattoos.
The damage has been done.
It’s impossible to retract it, since the picture was up online for over an hour before being removed.
It had 100,000s of views and had undoubtedly been screenshot, indexed, and shared.
NEW: The White House admits they accidentally doxxed US Special Forces by posting an uncensored photo of them w/ Biden in Israel.
WH: “As soon as this was brought to our attention, we immediately deleted the photo. We regret the error and any issues this may have caused.”

Whether it’s botching the withdrawal from Afghanistan or doxxing US special forces on their own social media – Biden’s WH is rotting with incompetence.
And they expect us to trust them to manage US foreign policy? No thank you. pic.twitter.com/z9VSHDkDdN

The reckless act by President Biden in disclosing the identities of US Special Forces is deeply concerning. For someone like me, this blunder hits painfully close as a former Special Forces member. The implications are clear: compromised security and potential harm to their… pic.twitter.com/VBuMyBlFe1

It’s one thing if you have a historian there documenting the moment.
But if you’re team is focusing on your next social media post, then how are you truly prioritizing what’s important?
Instead of posing for the cameras, how about you do your job?
The New York Post has more details on the embarrassing moment:
The revealing photograph was up for approximately an hour before officials were made aware of the problem, a White House spokesperson told The Post.
“As soon as this was brought to our attention, we immediately deleted the photo,” the rep said.
“We regret the error and any issues this may have caused.”
The photo received more than 6,100 likes, according to a screenshot that circulated on social media on Thursday.
The faces and names of special operators are kept secret to prevent identification by enemies if captured. Photos of Delta Force members are rare, and almost never include their faces.
We always pray for the safety of our troops.
But now, we especially pray for our Special Forces, especially those who have been doxxed.
If they were to be captured, they would be in grave danger.
May God’s grace and safety be on you.
