TROOP TRICKS: OBAMA STAGES FAKE MILITARY RALLY
Atlas Shrugs ^ | April 13, 2009 | Pamela Geller

Posted on 04/13/2009 4:02:52 AM PDT by Nateman

This is so evil ..... and the corrupt media is in lock step, goose step.

I watched that poor piece of theater and I knew it ........ well, at least we know the few in the military who are anti-American. Obama’s Potemkin Military Reception Flopping Aces (hat tip Dave)

“Cheered wildly by U.S. troops,” begins Jennifer Democratic Operative Loven’s AP report on Obama’s surprise visit to Iraq on Tuesday. Quite a contrast to the silent treatment Marines gave Obama at his Camp LeJeune speech in late February. Just how did Obama manage to fix that little problem? According to a sergeant in Iraq :

We were pre-screened, asked by officials “Who voted for Obama?”, and then those who raised their hands were shuffled to the front of the receiving line. They even handed out digital cameras and asked them to hold them up. [Via Macsmind.

As supporting evidence for the digital-cameras part of the story, the sergeant (or Mac, can’t tell which), suggests that the identical cameras can be verified in the AP photos. Looks right:

....Snip!...

I figured it was a set up but now we know it for sure. I'm expecting the redstream media to jump into action and begin ignoring this story immediately!

I think they did not know they were being played. You have a bunch of men and somebody comes out and says "who voted for Obama ?" A bunch of men raise their hands. They are asked to step forward and some are given cameras. They are then told where to stand. Of course with the sycophants up front it gives the appearance of a love in but if you look at the faces in the back it reveals the true contempt.

Violation of the Military Code of Conduct and the Hatch Act and they know it. Every one should be prosecuted.

I would have figured this much. Nothing this admin does is transparent or dignified.

I knew it was a set up in Iraq when the MSM said Obama made a surprise visit.

It wasn’t a surprise. Fox was reporting he was going there before Obama left Turkey.

4 years of lies and manipulation is too much.

Using the military as phony propaganda is nothing but desperation of a failing political party.

If they kept the cameras, they illegally took gifts, the participated in an openly partisan political event and received special privileges as a result of their political affiliation.

Not to mention the manhours of OPSEC training down the drain if these people honestly didn't realize they were being played.

My thoughts exactly. Notice post #62 and the date. That's why I made this post, I admit it, I'm bragging.

To be fair to Zeros willing idiots here: If they are guilty of anything it is of being naive and/or ignorant. If they were use to only watching the lamestream news how could they have known what a dirt bag Zero is ? The training was meant for working against known enemies , they honestly don't realize Zero is their enemy. They only see a president that they have come to believe is the second coming of Camelot , in black no less.

That morning my husband and I laughed when the MSM kept saying it was a surprise. Maybe they meant it was a surprise he was even bothering to go there. LOL He probably had to make it look like the troops all loved him after spending the prior 6 days denouncing America to the whole world and blaming Boosh for all the problems.

I bet there wasn't a dust storm either. Some of the photos didn't support that report.

The O admin is so predictable. They are an embarrassment. Just like Hillary and Biden have always been embarrassments with their lies and exaggerations.

Obies failure to visit the IZ last week and the excuse his staff gave still frosts me. Helicopters were flying in Baghdad that day and there was no bad weather. The Iraqis had to convoy out to him. The truth is if the weather is too bad to fly, then it is too bad for a high value convoy because you can't get air support and lose some of the intel support you have in good weather. I just think the guy was too scared to come.

Or he is racist. (Found out that Gurkhas guard a lot of our bases now.)

They want the military folks who support the Commander in Chief to be in the audience. I remember when President Bush came to our base in Korea. They asked us who wanted to go see President Bush. Those who wanted to went. We were briefed not to boo or have any shout outs that were derogatory etc. This is standard. I think the media is making much ado about nothing.

The truth is the “surprise visit” was purposly leaked so that Obama could get the optimium MSM adulation.

Once that happened, it would have been to dangerous for him to move around in Iraq. If his visit would have been a genuine surprise, like the times Bush went there, Obama could have moved around a bit.

As usual with the O admin, all hat and no cowboy.

“They asked us who wanted to go see President Bush.”

The thing here is that they asked the soldiers who voted for Obama.

You were asked if you WANTED to go see President Bush.

Big difference.

Look at that faggy, limp-wristed REMF in the center of the photo.

As a former infantryman, I agree with some previous analysis I saw which indicates there wasn’t a single combat arms troop in the bunch. The whole lot are chairborne rangers.

I agree. I just wonder who it was that asked that question. It must have been somebody with the military...I think.

You've missed the whole point, THE MEDIA is not telling you this. It came out on a BLOGGERS website. If you read the whole article she makes it crystal clear any manipulation of the troops by Bush , real or imaginary , was covered. It's this kind of staged "truth" that led to an ineligible Marxist America-hating Muslim to usurp the Presidency .

Look for the CIB’s in the first photo. I don’t see any. The second set looks like marines and they don’t wear them.

You were asked if you WANTED to go see President Bush.

Big difference.

Whenever senators or Congress reps come to Iraq, e-mails go out from the Public Affairs Office announcing who will be here and asking those interested in attending a lunch or some other PR-type event to contact the PAO.

In other words, it's a voluntary thing and nobody is ever asked for whom they voted.

I'd sure like some independent verification of this. I know from being deployed that there is a limited number and type of items to buy at the exchange. You can look around and see lots of folks wearing the same running shoes, listening to the same MP3 player, sporting the same t-shirts, using the same digital camera...whatever was in the last shipment from the states...

By whom?

Clinton for one ... distinctly remember the picture of him leading a large contingent of military across the WH lawn ... trying to look resolute. The liberal media played up the picture big time ... it came across as contrived, which most certainly it was.
