This comment from a US Marine, does not go along with what we saw on national liberal TV… S.
I Received this from someone who was in Afghanistan when Obama blew in. I've taken out all the forwards
Hi all FYI--for what freedom is worth.
T and J P are our friends who live in Virginia.

I don't know each of your personal political convictions, and apologize if anyone finds this offensive. I thought it was important enough to share.
This is J's first hand view of Senator Obama.
---------- Forwarded Message ----------
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 where 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 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-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.

This struck me because it is a first hand, behind the scenes, account of what we don't see from the media. Honesty.
God Bless All Of Our Troops!
