Operation Dark Heart (Anthony Shaffer) – Book Burning by Obama Administration
Book Burning is no longer the sole shame of Nazi Germany. On September 25, 2010, the Obama administration (through the Pentagon) burned all 9,500 first run copies of Anthony Shaffer’s memoir “Operation Dark Heart”.

Based on his experience as a Lt. Col. in the US Armed Forces, Operation Dark Heart was deemed a threat to national security after it had already passed two separate Army reviews and had already been published.
Burning books that have already been published seems like an obvious affront to free speech and seems particularly dangerous coming from the Obama administration, which has sought access to nearly every piece of American personal lives through its massive expansion of government.
This is not a right or left issue. It is not a democrat or republican issue. It is an issue of free speech and the government burning published books. It happens to have been done by a Democratic administration. If it had been done by a Republican administration, I would have made the same video criticizing that person.
If you think this story is fake, please Google “Operation Dark Heart”. I wish it was fake.
The NY Times also did a great article describing the absurdity of censoring this book. The article is entitled “Secrets in Plain Sight in Censored Book’s Reprint” and is available on the NY Times website.
Please also see the videos I’ve favorited on my channel for news coverage of this event.
My video is commentary and analysis. I’m not a news organization and I have an obvious point of view about whether governments should be in the business of burning published books.
Note: For all you mental midgets who think the video says that Obama the man actually sat somewhere and burned the Operation Dark Heart books himself and therefore this video is fake, please watch the video again. Obviously Obama the man was not physically burning books in a warehouse somewhere. I can’t believe that some people are so nuts that I actually need to point that out, but after receiving several comments indicating such, I felt it easier to make that clear.
The Operation Dark Heart books were burned by the DIA, which is part of the Executive Branch and serves at the pleasure of the Defense Secretary and the Commander in Chief. The Commander in Chief is Barack Obama and the DIA Directors/Secretary of Defense/Commander in Chief are part of the Obama administration.
And Barack Obama the man is aware of the symbolism involved in government book burning. If you think he, himself, was not aware of the book burning or at least tacitly approve it, then you need to start researching what is happening in this country. It’s no joke.
