Scott Taylor is a former Navy SEAL and the president of Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund.

Taylor and his group, which is composed largely of former special operations warriors and retired members of the intelligence community, are speaking out this election cycle because they think the Obama administration is putting American lives in danger through intelligence leaks.

Taylor spent eight-and-a-half years with SEAL teams, serving in Iraq, South America and Central America. He is now a security consultant.

As head of OPSEC, Taylor helped put together a short Internet film, “Dishonorable Discharge,” which has registered over 4.3 million views to date.

The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas recently spoke with Taylor about his organization, his new film and his critics.
