Obama official Ben Rhodes attempted to defend disgraced CIA chief John Brennan, but was shot down by Navy Seal hero Rob O’Neil. The Daily Caller reports:
Former Obama foreign policy advisor Ben Rhodes took a shot at President Donald Trump on Wednesday after learning that the White House had revoked former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance.
Citing Brennan’s involvement in the raid that killed 9/11 terrorist Osama Bin Laden, Rhodes seemed to suggest that proved Brennan was above reproach.
John Brennan was the point person for the Obama White House on the operation that killed Osama bin Laden. He knows a lot more about defending our nation than someone who uses security clearances to punish his political adversaries.

Robert O’Neill — the SEAL Team 6 member who went public as the man who fired the shots that killed Bin Laden — fired back at Rhodes, making an apparent reference to the other operators who carried out the mission alongside him.
Rhodes did not respond to the comment.
