New conservative PAC aims to get former US Army Green Berets elected

Many Americans were appalled last summer when President Joe Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan ended in the deaths of 13 Americans.

However, Fox News reported this week that a new political action committee (PAC) has just been created by former military personnel to keep that disaster from happening again.  

PAC calls out “failed leadership”

Called Green Beret PAC, the organization went public on Memorial Day, a decision that its founder says was significant.

Fox News cited a press release put out by former U.S. Army Special Forces soldier Jason Bacon in which he explained the launch date’s symbolic importance.

“It is no coincidence that we are launching on Memorial Day, less than a year after we witnessed the Biden administration’s failed leadership contribute to the loss of American lives in Afghanistan,” Bacon said.

As its name implies, Green Beret PAC exists to promote a number of former Green Berets and other conservative veterans running for Congress in this year’s midterm elections.

“Warrior-diplomats”

“It is imperative that we elect real leaders to Congress with the knowledge and experience to prevent this kind of travesty,” Bacon insisted. “Green Berets have spent years implementing U.S. Foreign Policy on the ground.”

“They are warrior-diplomats, who have learned foreign languages, understand foreign cultures, and have lived among local populations,” the former operator continued.

Bacon pointed out how such individuals “have a breadth of experience that surpasses that of a typical Congressional candidate,” adding, “We are proud to support these outstanding candidates for Congress.”

Big names included

In addition to Bacon, the group’s leadership also includes former Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, who serves on its advisory board.

Fox News stated that Green Beret PAC has already released its list of favored Republican candidates, all of whom are former Green Berets except for one who served as a Navy SEAL.

The list consists of:

Christian Castelli in North Carolina’s 6th Congressional District, Pat Harrigan in North Carolina’s 14th Congressional District, Derrick Anderson in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District, Jay Collins in Florida’s 15th Congressional District, Tyler Allcorn in Colorado’s 8th Congressional District, Joe Kent in Washington’s 3rd Congressional District, Don Buldoc in New Hampshire’s U.S. Senate race, Mike Waltz in Florida’s 6th Congressional District, and Eli Crane in Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District.
