Thanks__Galt couldn't, or didn't want to reveal his source for the same sad story.

It really is sad.

Allison seams like a very nice gal though__one who was enabled by the Marine Corps to attend a good university in Malibu CA. Most (the fking lions share) of the children of deceased veterans would never be so lucky.

And of course the deceased, had previously dumped Allison's cancer stricken mother for a fellow CIA employee well before his own demise essentially leaving Allison an orphan.

He wasn't the first American military casualty in Afghanistan__he wasn't military but CIA.

His wiki page is reasonably accurate.

Mohammed Fazi, who was in US captivity since 2001 was never charged and would have been released in the near future as the US winds down it's presence in Afghanistan..

As Paul Harvey would say__

VERY few Americans will want Obama to send troops back into Iraq. i realize that republicans don't really care what America thinks, but hey, you nutjobs really don't want back in the WH anyway, do you?

the only problem i see with Hillary being elected.....too hawkish. voters are fed up with that crap.

Poll: Grim assessment of wars in Iraq, Afghanistan

....when it comes to Iraq, support for the decision to go to war has crashed. The invasion was launched in March 2003 with Bush administration officials asserting President Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, though they were never found. At the beginning, Americans by 3-1 called it the right decision.

Now, by 50%-38%, they call it the wrong one.

The biggest shift in attitudes toward the Iraq War came among Republicans and those who lean to the GOP. In 2011, 65% of them said the war had succeeded; now just 38% do. A double-digit gap between Republican and Democrat views in 2011 has now been largely erased.

did it ever occur to you that there is nothin the U.S. can do cocerning the path Iraq is going down and the eventual outcome. Contrary to what you believe the U.S. is not omnipotent. What is going on right now in Syria and Iraq is a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran. You want to stop al Qaeda, look to Saudi Arabia. After all, that is the home of Wahhabism

Iraq has blowed up in his face, he now has little kids pilling into our country illegally knowing we won't send them home I wonder what plan he has for taking care of all those kids? He is probably going to tell us we have to take at least one of the children in our homes or be fined. What happened to the borders being safer than they have ever been?????????? Another lie.

along with George H.W. Bush hen he explained in 1998 what would have happened to Iraq if he took him out in Gulf War I. Everything he predicted is coming true.

We are powerless to stop it. Enugh American lives and taxpayer dollars were wasted in Iraq. Its time to learn to say I'm out, and toss in the cards

ahem if you hadn't noticed the weapons Bush supplied to the Iraqi government are now being used against it. Mosul, 55,000 heavily armed Iraqis turned tail and ran when confronted by 9,000 ISIS fighters. Leaving tanks, helicopter gunships, armored vehicles, large stockpiles of weapons and munitions.

Do me a favor, read up on the Vietnam war. Maybbe you will learn something. Or you can google the 1998 explanantion George H.W. Bush & Brent Scowcroft gave why they didn't take Saddam out in 92

Fazi was the commander of Taliban forces (chief of staff) during Taliban rule__he was a government figure.
Fazi was one of the original Gitmo prisoners__and was never charged.
Do you have a source for your story?
Fazi is a war criminal who should have been tried by a military tribunal and executed.....

One more for your EYE Openor for today-
(CNN)-- An audio message believed to be from al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri sought to halt infighting among jihadist groups in Syria, urging them instead to turn their arms against Shiites.
In a 26-minute audio message posted on a jihadist website Friday, al-Zawahiri called on the Syria's al Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra, also known as al-Nusra Front, to stop fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). CNN cannot independently verify the authenticity of the message.
A voice that appears similar to previous messages from al-Zawahiri ordered al-Nusra general commander "Abu Mohammed al-Joulani and soldiers in al-Nusra front, and all other mujahedeen groups in Syria, to immediately stop fighting and aggression against their brothers and all Muslims, and should focus on fighting the enemies of Islam from Baathists,(Alawites) and their Shiite allies."
The al Qaeda leader also passed on orders for ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and his followers to focus on the fight in Iraq, where sectarian violence has reached the highest levels in more than five years, often pitting Sunnis, a minority in Iraq, against Shiite Muslims...

insurance plus the death gratuity pays $500,000, enough to send the child to Pepperdine....but still is not sufficient payment....

as for your personal attack on an American who died in combat while serving his country honorably (as opposed to your buddy Bergdahl).....well, what can anybody expect from a draft-dodging scumbag used car dealer like you.....

As soon as you right-wingers adopt all the Black babies you deny their mothers birth control.
