    Hello everyone,

    As you know I am not a very political person. I just wanted to pass along that Se nator 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 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,

    None of this surprises me. There is too much potential for disaster. He knows how unpopular he is in military circles. He is the best pandering politician I have ever seen. After the Klintoon years, that's saying something.

    Can you imagine the disaster when the camera catches the facial expressions of the hundreds of soldiers around him. The media would be hard pressed to marginalize a photo op like that.

    Obama looked nervous at the Israel trip also. He and the rest of his Socialist followers didn't like the spent rocket backdrop provided courtesy Hamas who Obama would have us negotiate with.

    Is there anything that Obama hasn't had to further explain or backtrack on? I'm asking foir those things that he originally supported and now has hedged or the opposite.

    He is the first Presidential candidate that I recall that has had to explain every statement he makes.

    My Sister was in Bagram Afghanistan the day before BO got there. Are you still there?
