    Obama and those he surrounded himself with are also a national security threat.

    The first time I heard someone say that was in 2010 while attending a social function and it was an Air Force Lt. Gen who made the comment off the record.

    Americans will be bleeding and dying twenty to forty years in the future because of the decisions had had already made just during his first couple of years as as the Incompetent CnC.

    No man left behind is a motto that comes to mind.

    But lying is never good, so that army should have told the truth.
    Why does it matter? I can't believe you actually asked that.

    I remember when Clinton gave the Tals 43 billion dollars.

    He is not.....They have his own statements to his CO and Dempsey said this morning that he will face any Charges brought upon him.

    But any old lie will do to s*** on the American military.
    Ahhh the old CON game... you cite a BLOG who makes claims... You expand what I said in an attempt to disprove it all...

    Where did I say the PENTAGON???? the blog cite says the reporter, Loeb said the Pentagon wasn't the source but refused to name the source.

    Now that you mention the Pentagon, on April 2, 2003 the PENTAGON released 5 minutes of the rescue video and claimed Jessica had been tortured, shot and stabbed. As far as I know the entire video has never been released. (taken from the same source that makes the vague claim Jessica's Congressman made up the shot stabbed story, did ya miss it????)

    The Pentagon and Centcom sure pushed to make the Pvt Lynch story a propaganda piece.

    If you could post the name of the source for the Congressman being the start of the shot and stabbed rumor please, it seems to yet another unnamed source...

    I doubt it......he thinks because he disagreed with the Law he signed in which he issued a statement about it. He is above the law.

    Until.....he gets shown Otherwise. He will just continue on in his botched and failed Hopes.

    The Afghanistan government was shifting towards democracy in the 1950s and 60s before the Taliban took over. Women could work, become educated, dress casually and use many of the modern day services that men could.

    Makes me wonder WTH we didn't stomp these roaches into sand long before now. Guess we didn't see that slippery slope lefties claim doesn't exist.
    This is actually really interesting. Do you also have statistics for the general population of Afghanistan? Those living in poverty, those with schooling, etc?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    I post the following quotes from Military men-

    Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman JCF- "It is our ethos we never leave a fallen comrade. Today we have back in our ranks the only remaining captured American soldier from our conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Welcome home Sgt. Bowe Berdahl."

    General Dunford, commander US and Coalition Forces, Afghanistan- "You almost got choked up. It was pretty extraordinary. It has almost been 5 years and he is home."

    Oh and before the usual suspect wanders in here to spout off about PC generals and the like, Fortune Magazine (no bastion of PC Obama love) ranks General Dunford as one the the WORLD's top 50 leaders...

    General Dempsey led the Army's largest Divisional command in US History in Iraq. He would be one of those 'war fighters' some claim Obama loves to purge...
