President Barack Obama speaks at Ft Bliss, Texas
By Gary P Jackson
A powerful interview. Texas Congressman Louis Gohmert tells Megyn Kelly that 70% of the American troops killed in Afghanistan have died since Obama took office. He blames this on the insane rules of engagement that put our brave men and women at a severe disadvantage in battle.
Congressman Gohmert also calls out Obama for outing Seal Team Six, a despicable act that led to the death of one of it’s members. It goes without saying that having Obama playing Commander-in-Chief is hazardous to the military’s health.

Is it any wonder why Obama got such a chilly response from the troops at Ft Bliss, Texas when he showed up on August 31?
President Barack Obama was greeted with fleeting applause and extended periods of silence as he offered profuse praise to soldiers and their families during an Aug. 31 speech in Fort Bliss, Texas.
His praise for the soldiers — and for his own national-security policies — won cheers from only a small proportion of the soldiers and families in the cavernous aircraft-hangar.
The audience remains quiet even when the commander-in-chief thanked the soldiers’ families, and cited the 198 deaths of their comrades in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The audience’s reaction was so flat that the president tried twice to elicit a reaction from the crowd.
“Hey, I hear you,” he said amid silence.
The selected soldiers who were arrayed behind the president sat quietly throughout the speech.
CNN and MSNBC ended their coverage of the speech before it was half-over.
