President Obama says the loss of Polish President Kaczynski is devastating
April 10th, 2010 - 8:15 pm
WASHINGTON, D.C. (BNO NEWS) President Obama on Saturday released the following statement after Polish President Lech Kaczynski, his wife, and other senior government figures were killed in a plane crash in western Russia.
Today, I called Polish Prime Minister Tusk to express Michelles and my deepest condolences to the people of Poland on the tragic deaths this morning of President Lech Kaczynski, First Lady Maria Kaczynski, and all who were traveling with them to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Katyn massacre. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Kaczynski family, the loved ones of those killed in this tragic plane crash, and the Polish nation.
Todays loss is devastating to Poland, to the United States, and to the world. President Kaczynski was a distinguished statesman who played a key role in the Solidarity movement, and he was widely admired in the United States as a leader dedicated to advancing freedom and human dignity. With him were many of Polands most distinguished civilian and military leaders who have helped to shape Polands inspiring democratic transformation. We join all the people of Poland in mourning their passing.
Today, there are heavy hearts across America. The United States cherishes its deep and abiding bonds with the people of Poland. Those bonds are represented in the strength of our alliance, the friendships among our people, and the extraordinary contributions of Polish-Americans who have helped to shape our nation.

Nothing good seems to happen when Poles and Russians interact.
Yeah.... right. Not buying his feigned concern for one minute. Obama is the one that stripped Poland of the missile defense that would protect them from Russian expansion.
All talk, he has craped on our Polish allies like he has all of our other true friends.
Is it actually the case that the plane didn’t have land by instrument capabilities??
Just saying....take II
We will hear so many variations of the truth we will never really know how this plane came to crash.
Maybe I’ve just become a total cynic, but with Russia being involved, I can’t fully accept that this is just an accident.
Just like they got General Sikorski.
Yes, it has also been reported that NONE of the cell phones worked when found in the wreckage. One Freeper is (rightly so IMO) speculating it might have been an mini EMP used which would have fried the plane’s electronic equipment necessary to land in such heavy fog which would also account for the cell phones not working.
Anticipating doubts, the Russians wanted to put everyone’s mind at ease: “Putin to head investigation into Polish president’s death” http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2010/04/10/2869413.htm?section=world
Yeah, I’m convinced!
To bad it was them.
To bad it was them.
That statement makes me think he had something to do with it.
How satirical. Anyway, that characterizes the narcissistic attitude of the Kenyan-born American Antichrist toward leaders of the free nations alike.
