Commander in Chief? Obama Makes Surprise Visit to Afghanistan and Forgets Coast Guard is a Branch of the Military
Commander in Chief?
President Barack Hussein Obama makes a surprise visit to Afghanistan to see the troops, ut to their surprise the Commander in Chief does not realize that the Coast Guard is a branch of the military, as he forgets to thank them. I guess they were not listed on his teleprompter.
“I think we’ve got every service here tonight,” Obama said at Bagram Air Base. He then called on the branches as their members cheered: “We’ve got Army. We’ve got Navy. We’ve got Air Force. I think we may have a few Marines around, too.”
Obama continued, “And a whole lot of folks from the 101st Airborne Division, the Screaming Eagles.”
Moving to his remarks, Obama said, “Now, here in Afghanistan …” Then, someone in the crowd shouted out, “Coast Guard!”
“Coast Guard?” Obama repeated. “Is that what I heard?”
Are you serious?
