Skip to comments.Bush to Arrogant Chileans: Hands Off My Guards
Posted on 11/21/2004 9:55:13 AM PST by ArmyBratproud
In an extraordinary display of physical bravado, President Bush personally overrode Chilean security officials Saturday night who were blocking his Secret Service bodyguards from accompanying him to a state dinner in Santiago.
As Bush stepped inside the cultural center where the dinner was held, Chilean agents closed ranks at the door, blocking the president's agents from following, according to the Associated Press.
Can somebody please post images number 2 and 3 from aol news ? Please
Thanks protest1 and your 100% right !
Right, after Kerry wrote his own after action report.
Really? I don't see it. Is the choice available before or after I click on the link that says "Bush Secret Service scuffle" just below the pic? The popup I get gives no such choice.
I saw a report in Spanish on Chilean television that said that only the heads of state themselves were permitted to pass through that particular door, and that the security detail was supposed to go through a different door, on the side. However, they had been arguing about this all day, because Chilean security did not want to permit any entry at all to the security of any of the other countries in attendance; I think an agreement had probably been reached to let the US security pass, and the Chileans, either out of confusion or out of malice, suddenly decided to stop them.
IIRC, at the time of the Olympics, the Greeks tried to prevent US security from being armed. (They didn't get away with it, of course.)
We know what would have happened. He'd flee down the river and once it was all under control would come back blame everyone who fixed it and then claim credit and hold a big press conference and tell us all how swell he was.
Man am I glad I don't have to see that for the next 4 years.

Thanks. The problem was with my Firefox browser. The customize choice never shows. When I use IE it shows all the extra garbage in the popup window.
Did you hear The President?
"Get your hands off him!"
Great stuff. I wish I could have him over to my place on Super Bowl Sunday to watch the Patriots kick somebody's ass. I'll bet he's a hoot with a couple of beers in him.
