This is a message I recieved from a friend at work.

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 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
Battle Captain

Doesn't surprise me at all. He will never be able to relate to a Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine as the elitist he is. Smoke and Mirrors for the folks back home.

I'm really interested to see what snopes.com digs up on the truthfulness of this letter. I understand they are researching it as this thing has exploded across the web.

I'm sure that many service members want to shake Obamas hand and have their picture with him and have him address them personally.

This soldiers view is valid to his desires. After being involved in Many, many, many dog and pony shows as a member of the rent-a-crowd I'd rather he spend his limited time getting the low down from the higher ups and not waist my time with flowerly speech and at-a-boys. But thats me.

I know it must be disheartning not to have an oppertunity to have a picture to show Mom and Dad back home. Get over it. I'd remind the service member that he has the right to Petition Congress for any redress he feels he was denied.

Oh, I don't know if they are lefty or righty to be honest... hard facts like video of the said incidents make it kinda hard to dispute. Not to mention that there's a picture of Obama shaking hands with a soldier in another thread on this very forum.

Snopes debunks crap about Republicans too, like the one where GW was supposedly looking thru binoc's that were capped. It was put out there to show how dumb GW was, but it was a photoshop job as I recall.

Don't get me wrong, I can't stand Obama, but mudslinging isn't right even if it comes from the right.

Where's Reginald Denny when we need him... hehe

all he is a darker skinned john kerry ( i`m Puerto Rican so I can comment on him i`m not caucasian and not a racist), sh*t i got more respect for kerry atleast kerry was in the military. I personally think all of the forum members should just say F U Obama, and vote to McCain, just because he is such a pos in my eyes. If anyone deserves the respect and votes of the military ( past present and futures) its McCain.

Hate Obama all you want but if he wins I still going to be glad it wasn't Hillary. We need to concentrate on a republican congress to go with the democrat in the White House (face it - Mcain's campaign is floundering, to a lot of people he looks like "more of the same" so its not looking good for him) then we get 4-8 years of sweet, sweet gridlock.

Agree with kanthek. I don't see McCain beating Obama. If this Bob Barr stays in the race he will pull votes from McCain's extreme neo-conservative group.

I'd rather have 60 republican Senators. The House would be very hard to get the majority in, after what has happened. The Senate is do-able.
