    We need to take a deep breath here ! I can’t believe I am agreeing for once with Beckel, but he is correct in this case. We really have no dog in this fight, this is an international matter that the US has only a speaking and assist role in. Yes we need to strongly condemn, yes we need to offer help, but we have no business putting anyone on the ground unless we are asked to do so. Quite frankly some of the comments here are getting a bit over the top. AND this is coming from a 24 year vet and someone that despises this administration.

    #bringbacktheplane – State Dept call for action

    I was there at the beginning…I never saw a point of sending large number of troops to Afghanistan in the first place. We bombed the crap out of the leadership as punishment and used the special forces to boost the power of the warlords to get the Taliban out of power. The warlords are not to be trusted because they have ulterior motives for their own power. One let Bin Laden slip out in Tora Bora. We didn’t have a big troop presence there until Obama bought into the surge in 2010, an operation doomed from the beginning despite what you might have read. 1500 of the 2000 (3/4) of the KIA + thousands injured were under Obama, not Bush. The Iraq conflict is where we killed more Al Qaeda, not Afghanistan. Now he threatens to leave? OK, but why now..WHY NOT IN 2008? You mean we lost that many troops just to pull out?? Obama makes Bush look like a genius. Wonder how those troops there feel? How about those Army Captains getting their “pink slips” while they are deployed there. I bet morale is sky high ! ….My 2 cents….

    So you agree, fake and edited.

    But look at the angle. He would have had to be in an official vehicle very near the runway and not at the end. Most people couldn’t get those kinds of shots, especially as a hobby..

    Of course prop planes have instant power unlike jets. If that was a tower controlled field that guy would have lost his license. I always go around if I see someone approaching a runway not in contact with the tower or stating his intentions on Unicom.

    Doesn’t anybody else think this is strange that someone was filming this? Is it even real? The video could easily be doctored with the blue sky background. The ATC communication was departure, not tower too. Why would the video have that? This could of been a practice go-around being filmed and transposed into a taxi video. Also where were the landing pilot’s comm saying he was going around? Sorry, as a former military aviator, I don’t buy the story without more proof of the facts.I read other accounts of the video, none had a statement from Spanish ATC authorities. The stories were more or less a clone of each other from a travel reporter in Australia. Just saying…..

    FACT ALERT – Mandatory show ID portion of the North Carolina law takes effect in 2016.

    This is the established state approved punishment in Saudi Arabia. They do it in public with crowds around. Foreigners are sent to the front to watch. This is not radical policy to most Muslims, it is normal justice.

    I have no douby HER hard drive was destroyed (maybe not even in a cover up)….however it’s the E-mail exchange servers records I question. I worked in the government we had local comuter crashes and even server crashes, but we always were able to recover e-mail… the most I ever lost is one day. There are backups run. These files exist.

    He’s more into USSR history, 1963 was the year they sent the 1st woman into space. In his book, I guess that’s a more significant feat. A small faux pas on his part.

    Another thing about the VA….when you need an appointment to any specialist they give it to you by mail without asking you when it would be convenient, if you turn down when they give it to you, it make take much longer to get another.

    You forgot about loving to kill Americans, only they like to before they are born.

  • [3] June 7, 2014 at 7:27am

    From that Twitter comment: “Are you comparing Democrats to the Taliban?”

    Answer: NO they are worse, they are working to destroy this country’s morals and values, monetary system, and have killed millions of Americans who were never born.

    I am speaking as one who saw the Top Secret Intel reports prior to the Iraq War. I do not fault President Bush in starting the war, but I was admittedly not supportive of what the state department did after we toppled the government. I believe we should have not have excluded the former military in setting up the new government. I also did not think trying to set up a Western government in Afghanistan was the right thing to do. I do think we did the right thing in toppling the Taliban and sending a loud message to Al Qaeda, but we should not have tried to establish our government there. I also think Bush went too far with setting up the TSA, Homeland Security, and pushing the Patriot Act. IMHO they really helped the terrorists win against the American people. But all that said, President Obama is acting against the best interest of our national security and dishonoring the vets who have been fighting since 2001. This goes far beyond policy disagreements.

    I served 24 years as a US military officer and retired in 2006, I just wrote my congressman to support immediate impeachment of President Obama. I realize that the Senate will not convict without major public pressure, but it needs to be done for the country. I really think that the combination of this prisoner swap and the complete lack of border security to the south violates POTUS’s oath of office. While I think many other things that he and the Democrats are doing is wrong, these two can be directly tied to POTUS. If we don’t try to impeach him, I fear that it will lead to the complete collapse of our legal system and any pretense that we have a Constitution that means anything. I don’t say these things lightly. I hope everyone does the same. The President is becoming more and more bold in his disregard of his oath of office.

    This happens in this country, only it rarely is on live TV.
