soldier's-eye view of Obama in Afghanistan
Sometimes the news story needs to be told by a writer. But, at other times, the view of the guy or gal on the ground in a war zone is the best way to get the first hand report that the media accompanying Sen. Barack Obama is trying to conjure up to convince the world that Obama is "presidential timber" when in fact he is noting more than a stray twig that took root in the wrong place.
When Obama hit Germany yesterday, the German media addressed him as "President Obama." The communists of Europe love any communist, even an American one. Obama's "high stakes" debut on the foreign stage would be a joke except it is not funny. What is a joke, and what is funny, is Obama's facade, adroitly concealed by the mainstream media who repeatedly compared Obama to JFK when he visited the Berlin Wall. Obama and the media are doing everything to make Obama appear to be a titan in a world of political giants when he is, in fact, a midget is a Europe of political dwarfs who see themselves as the new titans of the world in search of a puppet to do their bidding.
Here is the view of one of those foot soldiers who winning the two wars Obama insists we lost. Listen to his words and form your own opinion. He begins:
POST SCRIPT NOTE
In his revised statement to the media (a copy of which was apparently also send to Snopes.com (which had inquired to the military about the email report) Porter said he was "...writing this to ask that those in receipt of his email to delete and not forward it." His statement continued: "...After checking my sources, information that was put in my email was wrong." What this means (in my limited view) is that Porter is saying he didn't observe what he saw and what Obama did and did not do was misconstrued by him. I'll believe that when pigs fly. Porter's public apology to Obama continued, proving that he did observe what he observed, and accurately recounted it. He said: "The email was meant only for my family...and if there are any blogs [which have] my email...I would ask if you would take it down, too. Thanks for your understanding."
Interestingly, Snopes.com, which received first hand information back from the military on this one, clearly understood that [a] Porter did write and send the email, and [b] that even though he wrote precisely what he saw, Snopes.com chose to label the report as false on its own website and chalked it up to misinformation based on "...tales of prominent Democrats snubbing or acting rudely towards military and security personal (and tales of those personnel responding in kind) have been a common form of political rumor over the last few decades, so it was probably only a matter of time before an example of such popped up during the 2008 presidential election cycle." It is becoming clear that Snopes has taken sides in this dog fight.. Of course, I have, too. But then, I don't fly under a "neutral observer" flag.
Once again, while I want to make it clear that I can't prove the Obama Campaign instigated the effort to "erase" Capt. Porter's email from existence so Obama can later claim on his smear website that it never happened, I learned long agowhen it looks like a duck, waddles like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck.
Capt. Porter's recanting, and his "plea" for anyone who has his email to dump it into File 13 proves two things. First, it proves that he did write it, and that he wrote what he observed. Second, it also proves he was threatened with retaliation for blowing the whistle on the most unpatriotic politician ever to seek the office of the Presidency. Capt. Jeffrey Porter is a man who has put his life on the line to protect the right of all people to exercise their right to speak their mind without fear of reprisal from the State. I think a man who has put his life on the line to protect my right and your right to speak our minds should also have the right to tell his family that it is his personal opinion that Obama is an unpatriotic snake. And, if Porter's father wants to tell his friends what a snake Obama is, he also has that rightmilitary regulations be damned.
Once again, you have my two cents worth on this issue.
