According to Obama.
So now Obama is not only revered as a great human being according to polls in the US, he has elevated the US to the #1 position in the world in terms of respect.
Well what do you expect from a President who has won a Nob ...[text shortened]... om the press? This guy is awesome!! 😵
Hillary, 8 more years, 8 more years, 8 more years!!!
I served in Afghanistan in the 75th Ranger Regiment, and served with the Special Troops Battalion on over 30 separate different combat missions around the globe. About 5 years of my active duty were under Obama's administration.
I am speaking from a Veterans perspective. I was a Captain in the Army.
None of this will be in the press. Yet, Obama should be tried as a war criminal. He has released sensitive information (names, locations, etc) of military personal that resulted in the death of American Service Men.
Obama has repeatedly denied critical technology and supplies to units resulting in loss of American lives.
I think of one instance, where I was working in Africa. We needed air cover. We were denied Spectre Gunships because the administration thought they were too high profile and would cause too much collateral damage to the enemy. Instead, we were given SOAR (no offense to them) but I'd like something that can kill him who is trying to kill me with the maximum amount of lethal force.
We completed the mission, but only after we sent 8 Rangers back home in body bags and sent about 30 to the Hospital. Lives shattered. And instead of targeting just enemy combatants effectively with softening tactics we had to engage them on the ground which resulted in a much higher number of civilian casualties.
If I ever meet Obama again-I won't salute him or acknowledge. I'm no longer in. He's a gutless coward who denies the American military critical assets to complete their missions.
I joined the military to serve and protect the constitution from enemies foreign and domestic. I did not want to go to Afghanistan or anywhere else I served. I went because my country told me to.
Before you sing his praises too highly you should hold him accountable for hundreds of American Military Personal who lost their lives due to his orders.
I mean, you remember the SEAL team that took out Osama? They were killed shortly thereafter, remember? Who was it that released their names and location? The administration. You never, ever, ever, ever release critical information like that. The SEALs phoned back home to their families several days before their deaths to be in prayer for them because they were in trouble (what that was wasn't exactly specified). I knew 3 of the SEALs killed on that chopper.
I hope Obama gets what he ought to get-a trial and prison sentence for all the deaths his administration has caused.
Edit: before you just call me an ignorant grunt-I graduated from West Point, so I was an Officer. So keep your high and mighty mindset to yourself.
