    Bagram GI: Troops Waited While Hillary Chowed Down

    U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton forced U.S. troops stationed at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan to wait for their Thanksgiving dinner last Thursday while she and her entourage arrived late, then cut in line and were served first.

    A soldier who witnessed the scene tells NewsMax:

    "Thanksgiving Dinner started at 3 p.m. that day, so the line was forming around 2:30 p.m. She didn't show up until around 3:30 p.m.

    "Once she got there," our source maintains, "Clinton and her entourage bumped everyone in line, forcing them to wait almost an extra hour."

    The brass at Bagram apparently had a hard time rounding up New Yorkers who wanted to have dinner with Clinton, D-N.Y. Only six GIs responded to an e-mail sent out last week that stated, "Looking for military members from New York and Rhode Island interested in meeting their Senator/Congressman."

    People magazine was on hand to cover the event and wanted to interview the troops for reaction to Clinton's visit.

    "But they were getting declined left and right," our source said. "People were actually telling the reporters, 'You don't want to print what I think about her and her visit.'"

    After Clinton and her entourage departed, the only topics GIs wanted to talk about were "how great the food was and how fantastic they thought George Bush's visit to Iraq was."

    I'm not surprised, and I'm (almost) ashamed to use up some of Oleg's precious bandwidth to bump this post, but, no I'm not! I haven't seen this particular report anywhere but here, so Bump! Bump! Bump!

    She's even a poor imitation of her PR chasing, philandering hubby :cuss: The best thing about her trip was that everyone over there recognized it for what it was! :scrutiny: :cuss:

    Bush isn't perfect, but Clinton bumping troops to get food first, and Bush serving the troops food instead pretty much defines the difference in the two.

    It would be nice to see some further verification of this, but if she did :barf:

    President goes over to Baghdad and raises the moral and Hillary goes to Afghanistan and lowers it. Shame on her!

    Yup, one considers himself, and acts like, a servant.

    The other acts like, and considers herself, a master.

    Big difference.

    Rule #1 regarding troops and chow:

    The lowest rank ALWAYS eats first, the highest, LAST.

    It is a simple and effective way to raise moral. Just goes to show that she had no interest what-so-ever in the troops, it was all a PR show...

    No, she was having an attack of the munchies :neener:

    You do not get calves that big by waiting in line to eat :D

    Oops :what: She forgot to read up on MILITARY tradition.

    Heh.

    You really think her actions were unintentional?

    When did Rhode Island become part of New York? Or did they just assume that troops from the most heavily democratic state would want to eat with her?

    Probably ticked her off to no end that so few did, so she probably thought "f---'em" and cut in front of them, not that she wouldn't have anyway.

    Bill,

    I think one of the people along with her was a congressman from RI.

    BB93YJ's observation hit the proverbial nail on the head.

    If nothing else, it may have confirmed for her and her handlers what an incredible uphill battle she'll have running for any national political office:D .

    Gee, another anonymous-source NewsMax story? It MUST be true!

    MPayne,

    I question it also, but something like this probably wouldn't register on the AP, etc. Drudge (for example) has has some so-called questionable stories on his site that proved true and were picked up by major media sources later. Considering that most journalists identify themselves as democrats or liberals, I'd wonder if this story will ever get the investigation it deserves.

    The Rhode Islander was Senator Jack Reed, a West Point and Ranger School grad who served in the 82nd Airborne. A Democrat, if one of a decidedly different caliber from Hillary. After meeting him firsthand, he's somebody I can still respect even though I don't buy into his politics. Not a self-absorbed a-hole with an entorage like Elvis or something. Something I can't say for either of the Clintons.

    Ya know, Bill was a pretty good president, 10 round magazine limit nonwithstanding. When it comes to issues outside the political scene...hes...well...yeah.

    Bush may not be up to the intellectual par...but he is nice, and he does his best, which is what counts.

    A friend of mine over there said basicly the same thing, they weren't happy with her coming over. That part I know is true.

    I subscribe to NewsMax and like most of what I read there, but as Mpayne indicated, most of the items have no by-lines; just as anything on the Brady Bunch/MMM site. Its easy to believe she did cut in as indicated but I'd like a little more confirmation before I called it that way.

    I think GWB showed a lot of class on Thanksgiving Day. I'll never forget it and I'll bet those that were present won't either.
