WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama on Monday dismissed attacks about his national security record from a group of former US spies and commandos who have accused him of taking too much credit for the death of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

The Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Inc, which says it is a non-partisan group, launched a media campaign accusing Obama of leaking information to "the enemy" and taking undue credit for the May 2011 operation in which US Navy SEALs killed bin Laden.

Reuters reported that the group has extensive links to the Republican Party.
