Posted on 06/14/2014 8:18:02 AM PDT by blueyon
As the Al Qaeda aligned ISIS jihadists roll on towards Baghdad, there are reports that at least 200 Americans were trapped and surrounded at the Balad Force Air Base. An anonymous contractor claiming to be among the besieged U.S. citizens posted this call for help on CNNs IReport website yesterday:
I am writing from ballad Iraq as a employee of sallyport, ksillc..there are approx 500 US citizens on balad air base north of Baghdad trapped..we are part of a little known F16 iraq support mission here
The company has reportedly for the last 3 days to fly us out, we are now all herded into a central location on base..and being told nothing.

That being said, I am so glad to know Obama will be golfing and fund raising this weekend. Bless his heart, He sure does keep his priorities in order doesn't he.
The Iraqi air force evacuated all those folks late yesterday. Thank God.
These civilians can thank Obama/Jarrett for providing a commander for these terrorists.
c’mon...we don’t leave anybody behind
Let the President think about this for another month or so.
Bet the emails and recordings of this will be lost in a computer glitch as well.
Don’t interrupt Obama’s golf game.
Great, and we problably had to immigrate the Iraqi evacuation force to Texas as well I would guess.
If you were all deserters and defectors, Dear Leader would have you rescued in a jiffy.
Alas, you are loyal, good American citizens so he will give you a good speech and then go fiddle while R...er go do a couple rounds of golf and do some Dem fund raisers...while you die.
Great guy...the Butthole In Chief.
Doubt our enemies could have chosen a better guy to destroy the USA.
(but the “moare free sh*t” folks will always vote for him.
Very soon a line will be drawn. When Mullah Baraq reads about this he’s going to be madder than hell. Period. Full stop.
Obama is hoping a few get captured alive so can finish with Gitmo
Al qaeda is obviously working for the U.S.
The U.S. Traitor-in-Chief desires the Americans be sacrificed as an honor to the jihadists.
Congress will do nothing in response other than to flatulate the sounds of being upset.
Fundraising...oh, and golf.
The question is fast becoming... "HOW MUCH MORE WILL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TOLERATE?"
So much for Americans being safe anywhere in the word, No where is more like it.
The Famous Amateur Golfer (FAG) strikes again.
When asked about this, Obama replied: “Those aren’t military folks”. We can leave these folks behind.
Golf is hugh and series! We need to let the man-child THINK for the coming days as that is how his brilliant mind works. Oh and he is on the patch so don’t stress him bro.

It's like deja vu all over again. This is what "diplomacy" will get you. Evil people only understand one thing. Americans need to learn that.
ISIS are Sunni, so is Muslim Brotherhood, and the article above will tell you WHY our leader is not intervening in Iraq...
Report: Hundreds of Illegal Immigrant Children Besieged by US Border Patrol at Air Force Base in America
There, fixed it.
Wait....citizens? I thought these were American contractors. Are they Americans or not?
I see Treason all around us. God help us!!
If any one had any doubt, they shouldn't now....Obama is a muslim through and through.
I’m waiting for a Democrat.....any Democrat......to come out and say that Obama’s golf outing is a good idea.
I’m pretty sure they were evacuated to Baghdad. If reports yesterday were correct.
“At this point,what difference does it make,”
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Thanks for that info, I was praying for those 200.
Now lets get the rest out.
My 32 year old son said this same thing this morning.... Nam all over again? Almost the same time period since we left has passed this time as well.
Diplomacy? With savages? I keep saying that David didn’t take a Bible to negotiate with Goliath. He killed him with God’s blessing.
Yes, I have an exceptional son who studies history and lots of other things. Most of all, he thinks.
It’s great to hear there are still young people out there who care about things like freedom, liberty and America.
Obama is once again voting “Present”, his SOP.
Obama and the American left are getting everything they want, the radical Islamic takeover of the Mideast, the flooding of America with illegals, normalization of homosexuality, racial violence in our cities. It’s a dream come true for the left, one that is worth losing a few elections. The left and its fanatic media have beaten down opposition to radical leftism, so that the Republican Party is incapable of changing the direction this country is going.
Well, to quote Chris Matthews, “you got to get out there and take risks and sometimes you get killed. And thats part of the business...”. So, Chris has Obama’s back, he says it’s no big deal if a few people get killed here and there, it’s just “business”. Sounds like the defenders of this Administration are getting their talking points from Michael Corleone.
Last night I read that out of 500 400 had been evacuated and they were coming back for the last 100.
I hope the President reads about this in the newspapers soon so he will be aware of it and do something about it.
And Obama does nothing!
good news—but what about the Iraqi people who helped them? I bet they will be missing their heads soon.
I’ve been trying to learn more about Sunni/Shiite, so your link caught my eye. So I went to read, and as I’ve learned from FR, always check out sources that are new to me.
After researching MintPress, I am now not sure about anything I might read from them. Here is a link from FAIR, dealing with MIntPress and Syrian chemical weapons use. Seems MPress’ version, which was heavily quoted in all the news reports I read and heard, was disavowed by the supposed reporter.
Originally thought I would write you privately, but thought, why not discuss it with all. As I said, I am still trying to figure out the Sunni/Shiite thing.
These tribes are all nuts and it's the same problem in Afghanistan....little power houses.
Truth is truth even if a donkey says it...remember that.
I sent you a link to study the Jihad you wanted to know about, it is written by intellectual historians from a neutral perspective (non-religious).
Their historical accuracy helps us see the intensity of the conflict between Sunni and Shiite.
As for reporters who approve or disavow things, it makes you wonder are they Arab, Liberal, or Well known neutral...because only neutral reporting is necessary. Any religious, nationality, or country loyalty will be scewed in someone’s favor.
I guess in a warped sense this conflict is like the Hatfield and McCoys...sort of.
Let me give you a Christian link to see the Sunni-Shiite conflict from the Biblical viewpoint. Both accounts should correlate... If you understand the old Persian Empire. You can see what is happening today to fulfill this prophecy:
This is not going to be a short conflict, imho...look for Turkey, Pakistan, and other influences to be a part of this Iran-Iraq fight> Sunni-Shiite sorting out of old hatreds, if this is Daniel’s prophecy of end times.
WE think we can only take certain Republican approved links to prove a point, when in fact some of the less religious links (not liberal but historical facts) that stick with history and when compared with the Bible we see there is the picture of what prophecy we are witnessing. As long as they are not trying to fulfill a political agenda.
