Press Release from Special Operations for America (SOFA):

Whitefish, Montana – State Senator and Former Commander at SEAL TEAM SIX; Ryan Zinke,
has announced the formation of Special Operations for America (SOFA). SOFA will advocate for
the election of Mitt Romney and like-minded candidates who want to bring true leadership
back to Washington and who believe in permanent and enduring American Exceptionalism.
Leadership that does not apologize and bow to the world for America’s greatness or politicize
military operations for political gain. SOFA stands against the core threats to National Security
created and unchecked by the Obama administration. SOFA will strike to ensure that veterans
and our families receive the care and benefits their sacrifice has earned. (more…)

Yesterday, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Emken sent an email to her supporters calling out Dianne Feinstein for not publicly debating an opponent  in 12 years.  In the email, Emken suggests that the candidates take part in a “series of regional debates” focused on issues important to each area of the state that would be moderated by local reporters. Today, The Los Angeles Times also put pressure on Feinstein to debate Emken, making the case that Emken has earned the right to debate the Senator and that California’s voters deserve a public hearing on the issues.

Over the weekend, The Washington Post ran a devastating exposé by Scott Wilson titled, “Where Obama failed on forging peace in the Middle East,”  that recounts how Barack Obama repeatedly demonstrated a complete lack of understanding, judgment and leadership when dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the Middle East during his first term.

According to people who attended early meetings between Obama and influential Jewish leaders, the president was quoted as saying, “Don’t think we don’t understand the nuances of the current issues. We do.”  Yet Obama’s attempts throughout his first term in office to negotiate a peace agreement between Israel and Palestine met with failure due in large part to his unrealistic view of the issues dividing the two parties and the dynamics that govern the region as a whole.
