love the media
Just in case you happened to see the ABC News piece (if you watch ABC News)
With interviews of 5 military folks in Iraq - 3 planned to vote for Obama
And 2 for Hillary; no mention of any McCain supporters. Well, here's the
"Rest of the Story.
This from Major General (ret)
Buckman, a close friend of ours.
My niece, Katelyn, stationed at
Baluud, Iraq was assigned, with others of her detachment, to be
Escort/guard/watcher for Martha Raddatz of ABC News as she covered John
McCain's recent trip to Iraq . Katelyn and her Captain stood directly
Behind Raddatz as she queried GIs walking past. They kept count of the GIs
And you should remember these numbers. She asked 60 GIs who they planned to
Vote for in November. 54 said John McCain, 4 for Obama and 2 for Hillary.
Katelyn called home and told her Mom and Dad to watch ABC news the next
Night because she was standing directly behind Raddatz and maybe they'd see
Her on TV. Mom and Dad of course, called and emailed all the kinfolk to
Watch the newscast and maybe see Katelyn. Well, of course, we all watched
And what we saw wasn't a glimpse of Katelyn, but got a heck'uva view of
Skewed news. After a dissertation on McCain's trip and speech, ABC showed 5
GIs being asked by Raddatz how they were going to vote in November; 3 for
Obama and 2 for Clinton. No mention of the 54 for McCain.
