Like many Kossacks, I listened to President Obama's State of the Union addressTuesday night with great interest. Leading into the election year, I wanted hints of his campaign strategy and any bold proposals he would put out there to challenge the Republican establishment. But while reading media analysis I came across another media story: US Navy Seals liberated an American woman and a Danish man from Somalia. Suddenly I realized that, in failing to read between the lines, I missed what Obama was really saying. Encoded in the State of the Union was a code to send the Navy Seals in on the rescue mission, which I dub "Operation Spilled Milk".

More facts below the fold.

We shouldn't be surprised President Obama is a fan of the Navy Seals. From sniping Somali pirates in 2009, to last year's heroic killing of Osama bin Ladin, the Seals have been the enforcement arm of the Obama national security apparatus.

I noted that yesterday's Somali raid news followed the State of the Union address. Prior to the killing of Osama bin Ladin in 2011 Obama made his correspondents dinner speech dissing Donald Trump and the birther movement.

Clearly we're starting to see a pattern of Obama using widely televised speeches and events to signal to American Special Forces when to take actions against American's enemies. We've already seen Obama tame lawless Somalia and kill America's greatest enemy

There have been more speeches than that. In fact, in his first year in office, President Obama gave more primetime speeches than any other president. These were often criticized by the media, who saw ad revenue drop. But maybe the reason wasn't because he wanted air time, but because America was facing a greater existential threat than we knew.

Conservatives tried to assure us that Bush needed to suspend the Constitution because of "national security" and used the fact that there hadn't been a major terror attack as proof that Bush was working. Using there same logic, with the additional facts that major military operations have taken place following two of Obama's speech, and we can make the case that every time Obama is addressing America, he is killing America's enemies.

Which makes you wonder, when Fox news decided not to air a primetime President Obama's third primetime speech in 2009, were they threatening America's national security? Could they, by not airing the speech, have caused embedded agents to not move?

Obviously we can't prove that Fox directly enabled America's enemies by snubbing Obama. But there is a good chance. And the Obama administration clearly couldn't call Fox out on it. The economy was fragile, there was a swine flu epidemic and hearing of a potential threat to America could have shaken the already damaged nation. Continued use of the speech system also requires they can't let our enemies know how or when they signal US Special Forces to move.

So I can't prove Obama signaled Navy Seals during the SOTU address. But I believe he did, using the "No use crying of spilled milk" as the code word. (Seriously, can you think of any other reason he'd stick that lame joke in there?).

So it's time to put America's enemies on notice: Next time Obama speaks, listen closely. That odd phrase, alliterative sentence or odd joke you hear may be followed by the shattering of your windows and the cold muzzle of a Navy Seal's gun to the back of your head.

Come Obama's nomination acceptance speech, you're a dead man, Ahmadinejad


Do you think Obama uses televised speeches to communicate to Special Forces troops?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    So here's the coded message that will bring death to Ahmadinejad, this leak c/o Anonymous' latest foray into the White House's computer network:


    DATE: 24 JAN 2012

    SEAL TEAM SIX to listen for "Obama speech on status of TBTF banks."

    PRESIDENT to use the following lines:

    "The state of our nation's banks has become the stuff of children's humor.  
      Who's there?  
      Ahh who?
    When the big banks sneeze, America catches pneumonia."

    SEAL TEAM SIX upon receipt of the line "Ahh who?" to move on Ahmadinejad.  

    UPON COMPLETION of mission, Commander to relay the following message to Situation Room:  "Gezundheit!"

    ALL PARTIES to this memo please acknowledge ASAP so preparations can begin.


    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.

    Not to nitpick what is a delightful diary, but the rescue mission from the pirates was completed before the SOTU.  In fact, the president congratulated Panetta on his way up to the podium.  It was caught on camera, but we didn't realize what it was about until after.  I really like that he kept it under wraps at that point, not to distract from the economic message of the SOTU.

      he sent them an advanced copy of the address. I'm sure there is a Navy Seal somewhere who is proud he saved that American and Dane, but couldn't get back in time to save the President from the "spilled milk" joke
