Never let Hollywood Leftists get facts in the way of a lie...
Noooo, really...... Hollyweird re-wrote the move for their agenda and humanized a Thug... NEVER....
Here is a far better movie of those events, some artistic license taken!
LOL, I went to play the South Park episode and they played an ad for the PC movie, LOL
My memory is sort of foggy, but I seem to recall that some of his comments right after the rescue might indicate otherwise. Didn’t he sort of slam GWB for using deadly force? Or is my mind going the way of my body?
Not sure. But it doesn’t sound like he was going to offer any of the pirates a job on his boat to increase their economic opportunity. Hmmm. Doesn’t john f’n heinz kerry have a boat? Maybe he could hire some wanna be terrorists to be deck hands. Actions john boy. Actions.
It happened under Obama. If I remember correctly Obooga sent the FBI to negotiate with the Terrs. Before the Feebs arrived on site the Capt. of the Bainbridge made a command decision and authorized the shooting of the terrs. Needless to say Obooga wasn’t happy about his beloved fellow Muslims getting smoked by the SEALs.
Tom Hanks is a homosexualist.
Yep, the fog is thick today. Bush was long gone when this happened.
