Hello everyone,

As you know I am not a very political person. I just
wanted to pass along that Senator Obama came to
Bagram, Afghanistan for about an hour on his visit to
'The War Zone'. I wanted to share with you what
happened.

He got off the plane and got into a bullet proof vehicle,
got to the area to meet with the Major General (2 Star)
who is the commander here at Bagram.

As the Soldiers were lined up to shake his hand he blew
them off and didn't say a word as he went into the
conference room to meet the General. As he
finished, the vehicles took him to the ClamShell (pretty
much a big top tent that military personnel can play
basketball or work out in with weights) so he
could take his publicity pictures playing basketball. He
again shunned the opportunity to talk to Soldiers to thank
them for their service.

So really he was just here to make a showing for the
Americans back home that he is their candidate for President.
I think that if you are going to make an effort to come all the
way over here you would thank those that are providing the
freedom that they are providing for you.

I swear we got more thanks from the NBA Basketball Players
or the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders than from one of the Senators,
who wants to be the President of the United States. I just don't
understand how anyone would want him to be our Commander-in-Chief.
It was almost that he was scared to be around those that provide
the freedom for him and our great country.

If this is blunt and to the point I am sorry but I wanted
you all to know what kind of caliber of person he really is.
What you see in the news is all fake.

In service,
CPT Jeffrey S. Porter
Battle Captain

You are so predictable, mbtogo. How does the title of your thread even have anything to do with the content. Oh yes - that's right ... as usual, it doesn't. It is just another example of mbtogo printing something incendiary without checking facts and then slapping one of his or her typical 'boogeyman' thread titles on it.

Did Obama Blow Off Troops at Bagram?

Monday, July 28, 2008 10:14 AM

By: Jim Meyers Article Font Size




The controversy over a report that Barack Obama “blew off” American troops during a visit to Afghanistan has taken a new turn, with an assertion that a photo issued to discount the report is false.


As Newsmax correspondent Kenneth R. Timmerman reported on Thursday, a U.S. Army captain sent an e-mail about Obama’s hour-long visit to Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan on July 19 during his week-long foreign tour.

The e-mail was first posted to the pro-military blog Blackfive.net. Signed by an Air Force Capt. Jeffrey S. Porter, the e-mail said in part that Obama “got off the plane and got into a bulletproof vehicle, got to the area to meet with the Major General who is the commander here at Bagram. As the soldiers were lined up to shake his hand, he blew them off and didn’t say a word as he went into the conference room to meet the General.”

Obama then went to a tent “so he could take his publicity pictures playing basketball,” the e-mail continued, and “again shunned the opportunity to talk to soldiers to thank them for their service.”

The e-mail was quickly circulated in thousands of e-mails and dozens of blogs. Several liberal blogs immediately claimed that the story was a hoax or a fabrication and that there was no such Capt. Porter.

But the Obama campaign went into high gear attacking Porter’s e-mail and got the Pentagon to issue a statement contradicting the claims made. An Army spokesperson acknowledged the e-mail was real and written by an actual Capt. Porter, at the same time seeking to deny its validity.

“These comments are inappropriate and factually incorrect,” Army Lt. Col. Rumi Nielson-Green told the New York Daily News.

Obama did not play basketball at Bagram or visit the tent, she said, adding that Obama “took time to shake hands, speak to troops, and pose for photographs.”

Capt. Porter also issued a statement via e-mail, asking those who received a copy of his posting to delete it and asking bloggers to take it from their sites.

“Some of the information that was put out in my e-mail was wrong,” Porter wrote, according to the Military Times. “This e-mail was meant only for my family.”

Porter did not, however, specify which information was wrong, not did he issue a blanket denial of his account.

And the Army Times reported on Sunday: “An Army officer’s negative e-mail account of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s visit with the troops in Afghanistan that set the blogosphere ablaze prompted Army officials to correct aspects of the e-mail and resulted in a statement from the message’s author that ‘some of the information that was put out in my e-mail was wrong.’”

I hope ever sumbitch who stood outside of vice president Gore's house after the election changing 'get out of Cheney's house' rots their gut with cheap whiskey if Obama wins. If I could get to DC I'd go stand outside where Cheney is living and chant the same thing. I have no sympathy for a single one of the people who hijacked our country for the past 8 years!!

You'd have to stop drinking to start - there'd have to be some sort of hiatus. Haven't seen any evidence of it.

Threads like this got me thinking about the way information is turned upside down, inside out, for a political parties convenience. Either party. How many people have been duped by stories and pictures that have been manipulated to suit ones political purpose.
God knows what percent of news stories, pictures, emails, have been bastardized for political purpose.

I know this is nothing new, dirty tricks and sleezy politics have always been with us. Now the tecnology allows anyone to create their own story/picture for the gullible to swallow.

After all is done tomorrow(hopefully) lets hope hate and anger get a rest for awhile.
God knows this country could use a breather from this election cycle.

For the most part I've enjoyed the give and take in the WP over this election.

What matters is the future. How would (if he wins) Obama write his foreign policy? He has already said he will launch pre-emptive strikes into any country he deems we need to. That is a fact. If you vote for him, you support this policy. I do not.

So don't vote.

Think of it as your personal protest.

I suport this policy if he attacks any of those terrorist supporting countries that you love.


Would you like to see another Pearl Harbor here, only this time it would be worse because the world is using nuclear weapons, bombing people does not solve problems, it just pisses people off, they wait, they plan, they retaliate, if you want to live in peace, we must not launch pre-emptive srtikes in other countries.

I agree with that part of the statement.
