This is from a fellow that I served with in Michigan that is still in the pretty much says it all, and is real...


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, to go to the area

to meet with the Major General (2 Star) who is the commander here at


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


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.
