An Army Captain's view of Barack Hussein Obama's Visit...

> 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 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 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-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
> Battle Captain
> TF Wasatch
> American Soldier
