Obama arrives in Afghanistan report says; White House denies it
New York Post ^ | may day | Staff

Posted on 05/01/2012 8:10:53 AM PDT by PilotDave

"That report is not accurate and the president is not in Kabul," National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told NewsCore.

ISAF would only confirm that a "high-level delegation" had arrived in the Afghan capital while the US Embassy said reports that Obama was there were "false."

The president's official schedule for Tuesday listed no public events, just meetings with senior advisors and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta in the Oval Office.

He can’t send that mere woman who is Secretary of State so he may have to go.

How could he find time away from fund-raising, political class warfare speeches, strategizing with leftists, and golf to be able to travel there? The only answer is if it is tied to another vacation somewhere.

Couldn't he just have AF1 fly over the ocean, throw it in the toilet and flush?

Is prostitution legal in Afghanistan? Or is there a lucrative sex slave trade?

How many SS agents can we afford to lose?

Maybe the truth boils down to this: How’s the golf in Kabul?

If true, I'm sure Bari is complying with Sharia Law and leaving his wife at home.

He never takes her with him to muslim countries I've read.

“Obama wants to be very far away from the May Day occupy protests”

Bingo.

Needs ‘plausable deniability’ while he and Van Jones orchestrate the Occupy protests.

"That report is not accurate and the president is not in Kabul," National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told NewsCore.

I wonder if that is a pathetic word-twisting "depends on what the meaning of 'is' is" response, where Tommy is trying to avoid lying because "Obama is not really the president" (we know!) or because "Obama is in a suburb of Kabul, not actually in Kabul". If the socialist usurper is in Afghanistan, it is quite unfortunate that security is so weak. While America would be far better off without Obama, I want him voted out in disgrace, not turned into a martyr like JFK. Whoever leaked this story, if it has an element of truth, needs to be far more cautious over the next two months. I know it's only Obama, but the Community-Organizer-in-Chief should be protected as seriously as if he was a real president.

My expectation is that the regime leader is in Afghanistan to gather fresh photo-ops for the campaign.

Nauseating POC...

The man-child probably went to Afghanistan to record a new campaign commercial. The taxpayers will pick up the tab of course..
