Bush and Uncommon Valor - retired Air Force colonel
Bush and Uncommon Valor
By John Wambough
March 2, 2004
George Bush and I were fighter pilots.
Lt. Bush flew F-102s in the Air National Guard (ANG)-- 111th Fighter
Interceptor Squadron (FIS); I flew F-105s in combat -- 34th Tactical
Fighter Squadron (TFS). Both our flying assignments were inherently
dangerous -- Lt. Bush's because of the high performance nature of the
fighter interceptor aircraft he was flying, the training required to
fly the F-102, and the high risks that come with all weather (night
and day) intercept missions.
Sen. John Kerry, the Democratic National Committee's Mr. Terry
McAuliffe and the anti-war (weak on National Security) left wing of
the Democrat Party have relentlessly attacked the service of Lt. Bush
and by inference other pilots and service members in the ANG and
Reserve forces as cowards and shirkers of responsibility for not being
in Vietnam. Their flippant slandering of our Guard and Reserve forces
in an effort to discredit President Bush and win an election is beyond
the pale. They have no decency left.
Cowards (or people who lack courage)
don't take on the risks that Lt. Bush did
in flying Fighter Interceptor Aircraft.
Flying jets in wing formation in the weather and carrying explosive
ordnance on board is dangerous work. The pilots in these squadrons
(including Lt. Bush) did what their country asked them to do. They
performed their assigned mission and did it well.
In November 1970, the Commander of the Texas Air National Guard,
Lt. Col. Jerry B. Killian, called Mr. Bush, then 24, "a dynamic
outstanding young officer" who stood out as "a top-notch fighter
interceptor pilot." "Lt. Bush's skills far exceed his contemporaries."
Colonel Killian wrote: "He is a natural leader whom his contemporaries
look to for leadership. Lt. Bush is also a good follower with
outstanding disciplinary traits and an impeccable military bearing."

Waa, waa, waaaaa...how soon your ilk forgets their ¨maligning and disparaging¨ and denigration of Bush for 8 years.
Go 'sniff Hillary's panties'. I'm sure Liz Warren and Moochelle would also donate a pair to a high level sycophant like you. Save your whine for THAT nasty cheese.

During the Vietnam conflict, military pilot training was greatly
expanded to accommodate the increased need for pilots. Thousands of
pilots were trained during this conflict, primarily to support mission
and pilot rotation requirements. F-105, F 4 fighter pilots, and the
pilots of other combat aircraft were routinely rotated out of the
combat theatre after completing their 100 combat missions. That meant
that other pilots needed to be trained to take their place. As the
Vietnam conflict began to phase down around 1971, there was a surplus
of hundreds of pilots in the U.S. Military, for which there were
relatively few flying jobs. Thus, the active duty force as well as ANG
and Reserve forces could be very accommodating to those who wanted to
pursue alternative career paths (such as Lt. Bush going to Harvard
Business School). In fact, these sorts of administrative actions
(early releases) helped alleviate the challenges facing the services
of a pilot surplus. Also, commanders were lenient in allowing
individuals to fulfill their service obligations in ways not involving
flying duty. Such arrangements were coordinated at the unit level.
Just as Lt. Bush's supervisor released him from the ANG to go to
Harvard, I released a pilot from the Air Force months early (when I
was Commander of the 4442nd Tactical Control Group) so he could
participate in the pilot hiring cycle of Delta Airlines. I could have
held this pilot to the end of his service commitment but chose not to
-- since letting him go early created no hardship to our unit. Rather,
it gave a pilot (who had served his country well) an immediate
opportunity for a future career. I point this fact out so that the
public knows that Commanders have the prerogative to make decisions
that take into consideration the needs of the Unit and the needs of an
individual ready to make a career transition out of the service.
Having been a Squadron Commander, I can tell you this -- we know the
status of our assigned personnel all the time -- everyone is accounted
for. We reported the status of all our squadron personnel daily to a
higher level in our organization. Likewise, Lt. Bush's Squadron
Commander of 30 plus years ago (Lt. Col. Killian, now deceased), would
have known where Lt. Bush was or, at the very least, how to contact
him should that have been necessary. The bottom line: Lt. Bush's
documented Air National Guard service exceeded the requirements set
forth in his Guard contract and Lt. Bush received an Honorable
As Lt. Bush completed his flying assignment in April 1972, F-102s were
being phased out of the Air National Guard.
What we know is that he served honorably;
he flew fighter jets;
he embraced the inherent high risk of flying an F-102;
he served our country;
he met his Air National Guard requirements and
he received an Honorable Discharge.
The attacks on Lt. Bush are designed to diminish Lt. Bush's service to
our country in the eyes of our citizens and soldiers some thirty years
after Lt. Bush received an Honorable Discharge. This is truly
reprehensible and driven by political adversaries like Sen. Kerry, Mr.
Terry McAuliffe and their left-wing media surrogates.(Go to cspan.org
for the White House Press Briefing with Scott McClellan on 02/10/04 --
the impetus for me to write this letter.)

Bingo! Here's a perfect example. You are not debating or disagreeing.
You are disparaging. Good little dittohead.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said the United States needs Iran's involvement in Iraq, and Washington should open talks with Tehran, a step he described as unattractive but perhaps unavoidable.
Graham, a South Carolina Republican, spoke on CNN's "State of the Union" and CBS' "Face the Nation" on June 15 making the case for necessary engagement with Iran to prevent the Iraqi government from falling to militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
"We are probably going to need their [Iranian] help to hold Baghdad," Graham said, adding "The Iranians have an interest. They have Shi'a populations to protect."
Graham also called for Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to resign.
The ISIL staged surprising attacks in Iraq seizing large areas in the west and north of country, though the Iraqi military has slowed the ISIL advance toward Baghdad.

Bug-eyed presidential hopeful Hillary calls American politics most 'brutal' in the world.
Mean, brutal America. No doubt preparing us for the tears that will constantly flow while she's campaigning.

Even Republicans disagree with your anti American posts ?
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that the government should talk with Iran about the deteriorating situation in Iraq.
"We should have discussions with Iran to make sure they don't use this as an opportunity to seize control of parts of Iraq," the hawkish senator said. "They're in this. They're already on the ground. We need to put a red line with Iran."
Asked how the U.S. should do that, Graham replied, "You just sit down and talk with them."
Graham has long been a hardliner on Iran, and his comments came as a surprise to interviewers Gloria Borger and Dana Bash. The pair asked Graham to repeat himself. "I'm sorry, it's sort of hard for me to believe that I'm hearing a Republican say,'Sit down and talk with Iran,'" Bash said.
"Do you realize what's happening?" Graham replied. "If Baghdad falls and the central government collapses in Iraq, the Iranians are the biggest winner. We're the biggest loser."
The Iraqi government is currently facing an insurgency, and Iraqi officials have warned they may accept help from Iran should the U.S. continue to stay out of the conflict.
President Barack Obama said Friday that he was reviewing options, but would not send troops to Iraq. Graham said he believes the U.S. should use air power to stop the advance on Baghdad and to hit Syria. He added that Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki should be replaced with someone more trusted by the Iraqi people.
"We should be the ones who save Baghdad so the central government can survive," Graham said. "But to ignore Iran and not tell them,'Don't take advantage of this situation' would be a mistake."

Frankly speaking; if I were Hillary; I wouldn't want the job. However, politicians are a quirky lot. She may or may not run; but my bet is that she will.
Same with McCain; I wondered why he would want that job; he's very wealthy and old, why not go and relax?
