#1 Fighter jets in Democratic convention’s military montage were Turkish, not American09-17-2012, 06:43 PM
First it was the Russian warships in a video backdrop at the DNC, now this.
It just gets better and better...
The Democratic Party’s national convention in Charlotte, N.C., may have doubled down on insulting the U.S. military community.
The Democratic National Committee has already apologized for using a photo of four Soviet-era Russian warships in a giant stage backdrop intended to illustrate the party’s support for military personnel and veterans
That huge image, visible in the Time Warner Cable Arena during speeches by Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry and retired Admiral John B. Nathman, also depicted a synchronized formation of jet aircraft that convention-goers assumed were American fighter planes.
But the F-5 fighter planes in the photo are part of the air force of Turkey, a nation whose government is now jailing journalists and establishing Islam as a state religion.
Brad Woodhouse, a spokesman for the Democratic National Committee, did not respond when the The Daily Caller asked why the convention planners displayed Turkish-flown aircraft alongside Russian warships while seeking support from the American military community.
On Sept. 12, Democrats apologized for using the picture of Soviet-era, Russian-operated ships after the slip up was first reported by the Navy Times. The Navy Times also received a tip that the planes depicted may have been from the Turkish Air Force.

You need a colon after "http" in your link.Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

Did they do anything right at the DNC? Well, they lied right. All the DNC was, was nothing but lies.

They already apologized for the boat thing. And that shocked the crap out of all of us. There's no way they will make two apologies a decade.Be Not Afraid.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

If it weren't for incompetence, Democrats would have no competence at all.
