Tears of a true American hero:
Soldier who fought off brutal
13-hour Taliban attack weeps for
his eight fallen comrades as
Obama awards him the Medal of Honor

Associated Press, by Lydia Warren

Original Article

An Army veteran who was today awarded the Medal of Honor for his courageous leadership during a daylong firefight in Afghanistan wept as President Obama named his fallen comrades. Former Staff Sgt. Clinton Romesha took a moment to compose himself after Obama read the names of the eight Americans who died in the 2009 firefight. At a White House ceremony attended by the military´s top leaders and former Medal of Honor recipients, Obama recounted the dramatic battle at an outpost in the mountains near the Pakistan border where U.S. troops were far outnumbered.

Comments:
On this somber occasion, the CinC crawfished from his own responsibilites, seeming to blame someone else for asking soldiers to "defend the indefensible," as if he was not in command of the military the last part of 2009. The president should have personally apologized to the SSgt for his indecisiveness and his lacadasical attitude that play a large part in the death of this honorable man´s comrades. I can hardly contain my contempt and disgust at Obama for making such a statement on this occasion and in the presence of such of man as SSgt Romesha

I watched it all because its my way of honoring this magnificent patriot and his fallen comrades. Even Obama failed to stain the ceremony although as OP says, he made several inappropriate statements.

Obama should send his crew out to investigate just who the officers were who came up with the incompetent strategy to locate a combat outpost on low ground, with unsecured high ground (mountains) within small arms range all around the outpost, and run them out of the army.

Once the enemy took positions on that high ground they could look and shoot right down on the US positions and as anyone who ever served in the infantry will tell you that is a recipe for disaster. If it were not for brave soldiers like SSG Romesha probably no US personal would have survived.

My family took part in a fund raising drive to provide airline tickets so that some of Romesha´s fellow troops could attend this ceremony. The fund raiser was developed and run by a woman who lost her son in Afghanistan. Heroes all.

#2 is correct. Who was responsible for putting our boys is such an indefensible position? The ranking brass who made the call have the blood of those dead and wounded soldiers on their hands. God bless those soldiers, their families and all our troops who serve.

Another comment on the visual images from the ceremony: Obama and Michelle were both wearing purple to the ceremony. This is some non-verbal communication to the gay community. Another instance of Obama sticking his thumb in the eye of the military. He just can´t help himself. I´m surprised that Michelle did not decorate the White House in butterflies for the occasion, just to appeal to that leftist radical voting bloc.

The soldier that Obama speaks about in the beginning (whose mother sent Obama a letter about her son) is from our town. Stephan Mace died after having to wait 12 hours to be medevac´d that day. Very proud of Clinton Romesha. Very, very sad for Stephan´s family and for the families of the 7 other fallen men.

In four years more American Soldiers have been killed or injured in Afghanistan under Barack Obama´s "leadership" than were killed or injured during the entire eight years of the Bush presidency.

In fact, 75% of American casualties in Afghanistan have come under Barack Hussein Obama´s watch.

God bless our heroes.

God damn our enemies, both foreign AND domestic.

The American woman who was shot dead in Syria accused of being an Al Qaeda supporter married a Muslim man in a sham wedding for which she was paid cash and a van, MailOnline can reveal. Nicole Mansfield entered in a ´deal´ with Ayman Mohammed Bafil under which they would stay together until he got a green card. The pair met online, never lived together and did not even consummate their marriage - but after his papers came through he paid her what he owed.

Sgt. John Hartley Robertson´s name is etched along with 60,000 others onto Washington D.C.´s poignant Vietnam memorial - no doubt visited many times by the wife and two children he left behind. But what if Robertson didn´t die during a classified special ops mission over Laos in 1968 as military records show but is still alive and well? That is the jaw dropping question posed by a new documentary which claims to have tracked down the one-time Green Beret to south-central Vietnam - where the 76-year-old is unable to remember his birthday, his American children’s names, or how to speak English.

It’s a close call on

The Republican assault on Susan Rice is a fabricated scandal, attacking her for repeating CIA talking points, almost verbatim, to explain the Benghazi attacks. The U.N. ambassador’s version, even with its omissions, may turn out to be closer to the truth than some of the inflammatory GOP rhetoric. But just because Rice is being unfairly pilloried, this doesn’t mean she would be a good secretary of state. And it’s a close call on the merits: Given her friendship with President Obama, she would be uniquely able to speak as his emissary. But she would also carry some baggage

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
