I wouldn’t be surprised if he was faking this trip.

I’ve never seen a salute with the elbow that low. RAISE THAT ELBOW UP, OBAMA. Is that a friggin’ insult? Probably. Also, what’s with Panetta and Obama disallowing troop presence and/or disarming the troops? Isn’t there something wrong with “leaders” who are not trusted by their own troops? Don’t answer that!

perhaps they were afraid of booing during the speech. How do you go to Afghanistan and not include the troops.

White House Insider has an interesting piece on this trip.

*******************

Just what else did he give or promise his muslim brotherhood pal while he was there? I’m sure we will soon find out. Wonder if he told Karzai the backstabber that he’ll be more flexible after he’s re-elected.

They say the last sad act of a clown who’s lost his audience is to drop his pants just as the lights dim as a desperate attempt to get the applause he yearns for. Looks like OBozo’s getting close.

“How do you go to Afghanistan and not include the troops.”

Wait. This can’t be true. Really. How could he go to a war zone and not meet with the troops. Are we sure we have the details down correctly?

I don’t believe he’s in Bagram...he’s in some warehouse in Maryland pretending to salute.
