President Bush is eating in my undisclosed location (UPDATE: Undisclosed location is IRAQ!)
Eyes on ^ | 271830(C)NOV03 | ChiefKujo

Posted on 11/27/2003 7:37:26 AM PST by ChiefKujo

President Bush secretly landed an hour ago and is currently eating Thanksgiving dinner at my undisclosed location. Anticipate a press release after he takes off.

I wonder why we have not heard any comments concerning the President's visit with the troops in Iraq from the scum and vermin, oops, I mean the the traitor/treason Democrat low life that are running for President! Did you get to see how "The Living Devil Personified", Hillary Clinton was received by our troops? Coldly, coldly, coldly. Fact is, our troops know that she and her miserable Democrat husband Bill Clinton and the entire Democrat Party are guilty of causing 911 and the deaths of thousands of innocent American citizens! The "WITCH" Hillary is a traitor and should be treated as such!

To you, and the other eight or ten idiots who read my post #2, when the poster was being very coy and secretive about the story, I have already SEVERAL TIMES acknowledged the reality of his post. Why don't you all just grow up and quit wasting bandwidth complaining. You obviously have NOT read the whole thread. I've explained it several times, so just chill. Sheeesh!!

My amusement with this thread has grown into thinly veiled amazement at how lazy and stupid some Freepers are. Of course, I have to take into consideration that this thread originated on Thanksgiving, a day associated with imbibing in copious amounts of tryptophan-laced foodstuffs, along with unrealistic amounts of adult beverages. Combine this with testerone-oriented sports programs, and hence the stupidity.

"Pic from aljazeera hoe did they get this so quick?"

That picture is file footage. The soldiers are wearing the wrong style of camo for this to be from Iraq. I think the photo is from when Bush visited some troops here stateside--somewhere on a base in the southern US during the early days of the invasion or just prior to the invasion.

The soldiers in & around Baghdad are wearing desert style camo. I would think that most of Al Jazeera's viewing audience would have been jarred to see that woodland camo in the background and had to know it wasn't actual tape of the president in Baghdad.

"Is that stroy true? Did that really happen? That must have been surreal for that other pilot!!!"

Yaelle, the way I understand it, is the back up plane is the same as AF1 but does not have all the Presidential markings on it. So if that British Pilot saw it he was familiar with the size and shape

As far as the story being true, I don't know.

OMG... we're on our way to Thanksgiving dinner with all of our Democrat relatives... this is going to be fun!

Full report please!!

Thanksgiving after action report: I'm deeply saddened. Not a political word crossed anybody's lips... I suspect because my liberal brother-in-law brought friends and it's not polite to have a food fight in front of company. Of course these friends looked like hippie-types (I really liked her diamond stud nose ring) and when they pulled up in front of the house they parked right behind our Bush/Cheney 2004 bumper sticker, but not a word. Nobody even asked why we were smirking more than usual, or why we were sequestered in the back room watching Fox News and roaring with laughter.

Of course, once we left I'm sure it was open season, with all of them bashing the black sheep. BAAAA!

It should be reminded that x42 could NEVER surprise troops like this. His visits had to be planned and then they actively reminded the soldiers it was an offense to criticize the president. x42 could not afford to trust the troops and the troops did not trust x42.

Exactly! I was on active duty during x42 and we were briefed continually to watch what we said about him. Of course he rarely came near us, so it wasn't that hard.

Funny story:I do recall once in Quantico when he landed there at the airfield, my CO had to be there at the hangar. He hung as far back as he could so as not to be associated with him, but Clinton saw him, made a beeline for him, and shook his hand for a photo. When he got back to the squadron he was very upset, so of course we teased him mercilessly. Threatened to revoke his membership in the Rush Limbaugh fan club.

I never said that ck didn't say where he was... I said he talked about the President after the president was already landed in baghdad.

But before he had left Baghdad. All the press stories were held till after the President had left. This was done to prevent Al Qaeda of Baathists from being able to attack the airport or Air Force One when it would later attempt to take off. Someone with an internet connection anywhere in the world could have determined that the President was on the ground in Baghdad and alerted terrorist to take action.

"Is that stroy true? Did that really happen? That must have been surreal for that other pilot!!!" (about the British Airways pilot supposedly seeing AF-1.)

I tend to doubt the story because that plane would have to be awfully close to AF-1 to be able to see the markings. Wouldn't it?? OTOH, I've read that AF-1 was flying "dark" and didn't have all of the electronic gizmos lit up & functioning. Haven't read anything (yet) as to whether or not AF-1 had a complement of escorts which I think is SOP.

The other thing that bothers me is that I think the Gulfstream 5 is about half the size of AF-1. One wouldn't think a commercial airline pilot would be fooled into confusing it w/ a Boeing 747. However, I'm mindful that any plane the president is passenger on is technically "Air Force One".

It IS a good story though; I just have some doubts as to its veracity.

Just heard a woman call in to a Mpls. radio talk show this morning.

She said she is very much a peace activist and very much a democrat.

She said seeing Pres. Bush surprising the soldiers had her crying, and she thought it was a wonderful thing that he was there!

The sincerity and involvement that President Bush has for the troops is changing some minds.

I heard much the same thing this morning in Springfield Mo. Also heard a caller say that the president "has two of them, and they weigh five pounds each". This did not surprise me as much as the next caller, a lady, who heartily agreed. The gals around here almost never answer to a veiled reference.

I've been slowly reading all the posts on this thread - and saving pics for my CnC\Iraq collection - and must point out that when Chief posted, the president would have had to have left Iraq already. He appreantly believed it was all clear, and perhaps it was, Baghdad time.

Thank you for posting this Chief, and thank you for your service. I hope you'll give us your first hand account from your unique perspective.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

But now, beyond a doubt in my mind, security was breached with this thread. and the danger to the CIC increased.

Agreed. If GW's current location (Iraq) could have easily been discerned, which I believe was the case, it could have been possible to quickly muster anti-aircraft offensive action (e.g. shoulder-fired missles) near Bahgdad Airport. They could have gotten lucky. it's not out of the realm of possibility.

Everyone bitching about his posting this is forgetting one thing, he could be at any one of the Centcom centers and be moved between them within a days time, Baghdad, Kuwait, or Quatar. Just because his prior post were from Baghdad doesn't mean he was there yesterday.

My nephew was assigned to Centcom in Kuwait and when the hotel was bombed in Baghdad his mother saw him on TV attending to one of the wounded.

Our President is not motivated by ANYTHING Hillary does or does not do. He is not petty like she is.

Hillary's visit had to be planned for a long period of time. However .. FOX revealed the President's trip was kept very quiet (5-6 trusted people) - with the final decision on Wednesday.

FOX is reconfirming that info this morning (10 am PST).

Nope,when he posted he said the CIC had landed an hour before hand,he left 90 minutes later.As a matter of fact,about an hour and a half after he posted this,the media reported it also.As I posted earlier,there is more than one mess hall in BD.Also,one would only have 90 min. to read,decipher info,plan and execute an attack on some exact unknown location.I do not think the info in this post compromised our President.

Yeah, that's convincing. I'm sure any bad guys setting up a missile strike on AF1 would just stop cold when one of them said, "Wait a minute, maybe this American fool is no longer in Baghdad!"

Let imagine that this soldier asked permission of his commanding officer during the dinner to return to his barracks and post hints about Bush's whereabouts on an Internet news site. What do you think the response would be?

In the ORIGINAL POST, that I happened to look at this morning, there were two keywords: IRAQ, PRESIDENT BUSH. Then the Chief told us further that we would understand why he couldn't tell us where he was.

It's not like the President was taking a jaunt down to the Canal Zone now, was he?

That's when I strongly suspected that the POTUS was in Baghdad. It was confirmed in my mind shortly thereafter when some very alarmed moderators had done an Emergency Pull pursuant to JimRob's "Loose Lips" ruling.

The people holding up the Yellow Caution Flag are correct: all it would take would be for one satellite call to activate the local jihadi. Whether or not the jihadi could have reacted in time is another question, but beside the point.

Agreed. I decided to repost most of your clear explaination. With GW present in a war zone, it was a breach of security for anyone to post that real-time information on the Internet. Granted, it would be a long shot, but it is possible that an anti-aircraft missle attack could have been mustered in time, and they just might have gotten a lucky strike oh AF1 at departure.

Some here refuse to accept this (albeit remote) possibility.

Pure BS speculation, he could have been at any base in the world including the US since his last post on FR.

The military has ways of stopping communication when they want to (scary thought for a freeper lol). Anyway, I don't know if it's technical or just orders but I have two sons in the military , who at times have not been able to call or use the net (esp. when HS decides to change crayons)There were probably lines at phones and computers to ask mom "guess who's here?"
