Boots on the ground is not a military term. According to The Official Dictionary of Unofficial English it means individuals deployed under a military command. There functions may be anything from spying, ground combat to advisory roles. The first known use of it was General Warner stating that even a light token land force would signal that there is "boots on the ground."

Obama Linked Benghazi to Video 3 Days After CIA Eyewitnesses Confirmed No Protest There
December 31, 2012 - 9:44 PM

( CNSNews.com )- Three days after CIA and State Department eyewitnesses reported on Sept. 15 that there had been no protest in Benghazi, Libya, before terrorists attacked the U.S. diplomatic mission and a CIA facility there on Sept. 11, President Barack Obama and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney both publicly linked the attacks, which killed four Americans, to protests against an anti-Muslim video that had been posted on YouTube.

Carney did it at the White House press briefing on Tuesday, Sept. 18, and Obama did it later that same day in a taped interview with David Letterman.

However, according to a new report by the Senate Homeland Security Committee, personnel working at the CIA "Annex" in Benghazi on Sept. 11 reported on Sept. 15 that there had been no protest in Benghazi that day, and State Department security personnel who survived the Benghazi attacks told FBI interviewers on Sept. 15 and Sept. 16 that they, too, had seen no evidence of any protest before the attacks.

At the White House briefing on Sept. 18, Carney said that there was a protest in Benghazi on Sept. 11 against the anti-Muslim YouTube video and that the attacks there were "sparked" by protests. Obama, appearing on David Letterman’s show that same day, instantly referred to the video and called its maker a “shadowy character” when Letterman asked him what had happened in Benghazi.

Also, an internal State Department email exchange on Sept. 18--the same day Carney made his claim at the White House briefing and Obama made his on Letterman—shows that State Department security officers new by that date that there had been no protest in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012.

Oblamer's people died

then he lied and lied and lied some more.

Wow, this is amazing, you finally got something right. That's a first and probably only event.
Boots on the ground” has become a fairly familiar phrase, primarily in discussions of a military presence but sometimes in other contexts. The definition is simple: troops (or other physical presence) actually on the ground in the place being discussed. Wikipedia suggests the phrase was coined by a British officer in Malaya in the 1950s but doesn’t give a citation. However, without too much difficulty, I was able to find a print reference with the right context and meaning in a Congressional Quarterly Weekly from 1956 (“The decision to retain 10 Army divisions appears to reflect a decision that ‘boots on the ground’ remain a uniquely potent pledge of U.S. support.”). The phrase was known and used in military circles during the Vietnam era, and there’s no doubt that it’s surged in popularity since 9/11.
http://thebettereditor.wordpress.com/2014/05/...
when those thousands of military advisors become 10 Army divisions, then you would have Boots on the Ground
All of this propaganda jargon is quite routine especially now with the Magic Negro Administration.

When JFK sent Cuban exiles into the Bay of Pigs, were they "boots on the ground"?

When they were captured and executed on the spot because JFK wouldn't send backup support, did we incur a military loss of personnel or not?

Are Black Ops considered "boots on the ground"?

All of this talk here over the definition and implementation of "boots on the ground" is a moot discussion about how many SEALs can dance on the head of a pin.

Michael Brown's Step-daddy in the White House doesn't know the difference between Mom Jeans and Evisu's much less "boots on the ground" and "black crime in America".

You people are very selective in your view of the Reagan presidency. It borders on insanity.
It is no secret that I am not a fan of Reagan. I had him as a governor. But, Reagan did not "bring about the demise of the Iron Curtain and the Societ Empire." I wish you people would stop spreading that lie. Gorbachev came to power. That was what made the difference. Reagan did, however, do all the things I mentioned. He doubled the debt. He sold arms to Iran (not to mention his blunders in Grenada and Beirut). Eight of his senior officials were indicted but he knew "nothing". He ignored AIDS. He pushed the mentaly ill out onto the streets and into jails and he granted amnesty to nearly 3 million illegal immigrants. His approval rating fell to 35% during the Reagan recession and, we still have not recovered from his “trickle down” economic which widened the gap between the rich and poor.
Reagan was a dunce for Pete's sake..."“Trees cause more pollution than automobiles do”. Oh, and lets not forget his recounting, at a 1983 Congressional Medal of Honor ceremoney, the story of military heroism that never happened. It was a scene from the movie "A Wing and a Prayer" but he thought it was real. Pathetic.
Now, Obama has "ended the BUSH recession" and he has "returned American pride in this country" and restored global opinion of America around the world but you are too brainwashed to acknowledge those accomplishments.
Russia's economy collapsed under Reagan's presidency. And the Berlin wall was torn down.

If Reagan even had a small part in ending the Cold War and tearing down that wall, it was a pretty big achievement.

An exhaustive nonpartisan investigation exonerated Reagan from any wrongdoing in the Iran-Contra affair.

And, actually, trees DO contribute to pollution. Many trees emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which in the presence of sunlight and nitrogen oxides (NOx), may react to form photochemical smog, otherwise referred to as ozone.

But who would you choose as the better president? Reagan? Or Obama?

Tax refunds may get hit due to health law credits
Associated Press By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR

WASHINGTON (AP)— Taxes? Who wants to think about taxes around Labor Day?

But if you count on your tax refund and you're one of the millions getting tax credits to help pay health insurance premiums under President Barack Obama's law, it's not too early.

Here's why: If your income for 2014 is going to be higher than you estimated when you applied for health insurance, then complex connections between the health law and taxes can reduce or even eliminate your tax refund next year.

Maybe you're collecting more commissions in an improving economy. Or your spouse got a better job. It could trigger an unwelcome surprise.

The danger is that as your income grows, you don't qualify for as much of a tax credit. Any difference will come out of your tax refund, unless you have promptly reported the changes.
