The Biden administration running this country is an egregious national security risk.
The White House media team reportedly made a catastrophic blunder on its social media pages Wednesday while Joe Biden visited Israel.
A picture of Joe Biden meeting with U.S. troops labeled “first responders” was posted on the White House’s Instagram, Facebook, and X accounts.
The picture had a caption that read: “In Israel, President Biden met with first responders to thank them for their bravery and the work they’re doing in response to the Hamas terrorist attacks.”
Here’s the picture with the faces blurred:
However, these aren’t “first responders” in the photo.
According to reports, they’re members of the elite “Delta Force” (Combat Applications Group or CAG).
The White House reportedly posted the photo on its social media pages for roughly an hour with the faces revealed.
Intelligence analyst Sam Shoemate called out the White House for the disastrous security risk to one of the U.S. military’s most skilled and secretive groups.
“The Whitehouse media team shared this picture last night (I added the black boxes) without blurring or censoring the faces of the ‘Delta Force’ (CAG) operator’s faces. They deleted it an hour later after hundreds of thousands had already viewed it. This is a massive failure on the Biden admin,” he wrote.

“The White House admits they accidentally doxxed US Special Forces by posting an uncensored photo of them w/ Biden in Israel,” Fox News National Correspondent Bill Melugin wrote.
“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,” the White House reportedly commented.

“Is the White House really this stupid or are they just trying to get people targeted ? This is totally unacceptable… These operators are required to maintain a level of discretion that this administration has completely disregarded. I would know, my husband is a retired operator. They are elite trained fighters and something as simple as facial ID recognition is putting them in direct threat by adversaries. How did this happen White House?” Sara A. Carter asked.

Military.com provides further info about Delta Force:
“Delta Force,” officially known as 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (1st SFOD-D), is one of the U.S. special missions units primarily focused on the counterterrorism mission. SFOD-Delta has been through a few name changes over the years, and even though it likely always will be known as SFOD-Delta, it recently was renamed the Combat Applications Group (CAG) and is now known officially as Army Compartmented Elements (ACE).
Though Delta Force is primarily a tier-one counterterrorism unit, specifically directed to kill or capture high-value units or dismantle terrorist cells, Delta Force remains extremely flexible and can engage in direct-action missions, hostage rescues and covert missions working directly with the CIA, as well as high-ranking protective services of our senior leaders during visits in war-torn countries.
Delta is under operational control of the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) though administratively supported by the Army Special Operations Command (USASOC).
This isn’t the first time Joe Biden has been blamed for putting an elite U.S. military unit in harm’s way.
“The families of three fallen Navy SEAL Team Six members say President Obama and Vice President Biden are culpable for the deaths of their sons for publicly identifying the unit that killed Osama bin Laden,” WND wrote in 2013.
SEAL Team Six carried out the daring raid in Pakistan in early May 2011. Three months later, three members of the unit were among 38 killed in a Chinook helicopter crash in Afghanistan. Twenty-five of the dead were special operations forces. Larry Klayman is founder of Freedom Watch, a WND columnist and the attorney representing three of the families who lost their sons. He said the Obama administration carelessly and illegally revealed the role of SEAL Team Six shortly after announcing the successful mission to kill bin Laden.
“Shortly after that successful raid on bin Laden, the president – through the vice president for political purposes – released the name of SEAL Team Six. That’s classified information, and even (then) Defense Secretary Robert Gates was critical of that. So that was like putting a target on the backs of the sons of my clients,” said Klayman, who revealed the helicopter may have been infiltrated by the Taliban before the crash because the Afghans on board were last-minute changes from the names on the original flight manifest.
Klayman said Vice President Joe Biden deserves special blame for these deaths.
“Biden did something, which was more than irresponsible. He served on foreign relations committees, intelligence committees. He knew, or should have known, what he was doing. He should be held accountable. Frankly, he should even be held criminally accountable for doing that,” Klayman said.
