E Mail about Senator Obama gets Army Captain in BIG trouble
E Mail about Senator Obama gets Army Captain in trouble

I don't know how much or what kind and I won't be like the Captain and make up a story. The false e mail has already made Snopes as a fake internet rumor.

The Captain is real, his wife is real, the information he put into his e mail was fake, The story has also made the Army Times.

So as fast as the internet is in spreading BS, it can also be used to point out the falsehoods just as fast.

Army Times sent an e-mail to Porter, a Utah Army National Guard member assigned to the 142nd Military Intelligence Battalion, asking if he could verify that he wrote the controversial e-mail and requesting an interview.

Porter’s reply declined the interview request, but said:

"I am writing this to ask that you delete my e-mail and not forward it, after checking my sources some of the information that was put out in my e-mail was wrong. This e-mail was meant only for my family. Please respect my wishes and delete the e-mail and if there are any blogs you have my e-mail portrayed on I would ask if you would take it down too."

When contacted, Tiffany Porter who identified herself as his wife, said: "There were discrepancies in the e-mail, but I am not at liberty to say more."

The Army refuted the accuracy of the account of the Obama visit.


I encourage everyone to read the entire account and the Snopes account there are also other replies from other soldiers stationed at Bagram that dispute Captain Porter's asserstions

UPDATE hat tip to "webranding" on how to copy from snopes

some other soldiers comments:

CPT Porter wasn't even there. He claims Obama went to play basketball with troops, which isn't true. Obama went to the Headquarters buildings to have meetings with the Generals and then he flew to meet soldiers at Jalalabad. CPT Porter lied and said that he played basketball with troops at Bagram, when fact of the matter is - is that he got this info from reading the newsheadlines that say he played bball in Kuwait. I met Sen Obama and I've also submitted photos of him in Afghanistan for you to view. He thanked me for my service and was forever grateful for the sacrifices me and my family are making while I am out here. I am disgusted to be serving alongside a liar like Captain Porter, I hope he gets court martialed for lying

snip

I don't know who this captain saw, but it wasn't the Barack Obama I just saw in Afghanistan. Unlike most of the pols who breeze on through for nothing more than brief photo ops before leaving he was warm, friendly & engaging (as much as security would allow) with the troops he met
and he was genuinely interested in us and our mission and how we could best serve our country. When Obama went to Jordan a few days ago they said "The guy gets it. Sharp, aware and a very good listener. He doesn't seem stuck in preconceived positions." Those are the qualities I'd like to see in my Commander in Chief. While Obama was out visiting the troops, what was John McCain doing ...?, playing golf with his rich cronies (Bush Sr.) in Kennbunkport and whining about how much press coverage Obama was getting. Definitely not the qualities I want to see in my Commander in Chief. Personally I think any officer who would publically gripe about not getting "thanked" for his service by a civilian is a disgrace to the military.


Then there is this from the NY Daily News

Today’s Daily News reports on an Obama-trashing e-mail ricocheting around the Internet, which is signed by a soldier who allegedly saw the Democratic candidate in Afghanistan. It sparked a fierce partisan debate across the blogosphere yesterday over its authenticity. The e-mail certainly appeared at first to be a budding Snopes classic. Websites posting the soldier’s screed attributed it to an officer from the Army, Marines or Air Force - a sure sign of a fake, right?

The News reported it wasn’t actually a hoax letter - though the military officially disputes the e-mail’s factual accuracy. The original poster attributed the message to an anonymous Air Force officer in the hope it would give the author, a Utah Army National Guard intelligence officer, some cover. But the Army captain’s wife had already forwarded it to others who posted the e-mail in full with the couple’s names.

In his e-mail (read the full text after the jump), the Task Force Wasatch "battle captain" beefed about the Illinois senator supposedly breezing into Bagram Airfield this week and blowing off G.I.s on his way to a staged photo-op to play basketball.


The military can ignore these lies which I doubt they do, I feel that someone is going to demand some accountability, this is not a simple "little white lie" without consequences.

I will not even attempt to say I feel sorry for CPT Porter, I don't, he deserves whatever happens to him.
