Senate hopeful critical of bin Laden spy leaks

US Senate hopeful Gabriel E. Gomez may be a fresh face to the Massachusetts Republican Party, but the former Navy Seal was briefly the face of a controversial group that criticized President Obama for politicizing the killing of Osama bin Laden.

Made up of former Navy SEALs and intelligence officers, the group, known as the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, expressed concern that national security was being compromised by a spate of ­intelligence leaks. The focus of the organization’s campaign was a 22-minute video released three months before the election that slammed Obama for exploiting the killing of bin Laden and endangering troops for political purposes.
