In The Interest of Fairness – The Other Side of Obama’s Visit to the Troops

In the past week and a half, my in-box has been inundated with e-mails from well-meaning friends who are outraged at the reports coming from Iraq that Senator Obama had snubbed our troops while touring the war zone.

A friend of mine, a decorated military veteran who supports the Obama candidacy, sent me the following clarification. In the interest of fair play, I share it with the readers of The White Rhino Report for your consideration.

This report is false and has already been debunked. His time spent meeting troops has been extensively documented by numerous sources, including Fox News:

Having had the opportunity to see Barack in action on several occasions, I have seen him go out of his way to make personal connections and truly listen to both his supporters and people who don't agree with him. This is not an effete liberal - but a self made man with incredibly strong character & values.

I don't know if CPT Porter is a real person with partisan political motives, or someone fabricated for the purposes of the smear, but appreciate any help you can provide in spreading the facts & elevating the tone of the campaign.

Thanks for everything!
