A soldiers email regarding the Obama visit to Afghanistan

This is an excerpt from an email I got from a lady who is well connected to troops and supporting them. I am outraged but not surprised at what he has to say about Obama:


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 American's 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 Cheer leaders than from a Senator, who wants to be the President of the United States . I just don't understand how anyone would want him to be our Commander-and-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


yep, not surprising at all

Andrea Mitchell on TV said that she personally witnessed Obama talking to troops in a hospital, when there were no cameras around.

This particular one hour visit to Bagram is not indicative of everything.

And that soldier should learn the UCMJ. One isn't allowed to go interjecting oneself in political campaigns... although maybe that rule is only for officers, I forget.

Its only for officers and like I said previously, keep your head in the sand.

Even when you ninnies have proof you still find ways to subvert the truth.

Do you deny the authenticity of this email?

Too bad

I said I doubt that one soldier's view of one hour, during which Obama was meeting with a General, is hardly, in any way shape or form, indicative of the soldier's claim that Obama doesn't talk to the troops.

It is simply A FACT that he did talk to the troops, both in America and abroad.
