Once again Dumbya puts his troops lives at great risk just so he can stroke his selfish ego and grandstand in a military jacket, pretending to be a great leader while in fact he has to go into hiding on Air Force One (like he did on 9/11) while he sneeks into Baghdad like a criminal returning to the scene of his crime.

He endangered dozens of troops by forcing them to remain in hostile terroritory, risking their lives just so he can have a safe getaway leaving them locked out and on their own to fend off possible IEDs, RPGs and terrorist snipers for over an hour - all just so he can get his picture taken in a Baghdad hangar wearing a spiffy Army jacket and hugging the troops for his upcoming campaign ads.



Bush appearance stuns troops gathered at airport for Thanksgiving
.
.
.
But other soldiers grew angry that their departure from the airport was delayed for an hour, while they waited for Air Force One to depart. Finding the door barred, about 50 troops got into a shouting match with the soldier blocking their exit. The streets of Baghdad were too dangerous to delay their departure any longer, they shouted.

"Do you have any idea how many IEDs are on this road?" one soldier shouted, referring to improvised explosive devices or roadside bombs. "I have to get back to my base. I don't want to lose a soldier because the president wants us to sit here."




That's EXACTLY how the Left is gonna spin this.

They described his surprise arrival at night as "criminal-like". The NY Times' bitching that they weren't informed and are hurt that Bush feels like he can't trust them [rolleyes] GEE, WHY WOULDN'T BUSH TRUST THE NY TIMES?

Some of the DU'ers are saying GWB was in Kuwait or a "safe" part of Iraq, one guy even said we faked the landing on the moon so it was easy to make it look like Bush was in Iraq. [whacko]

Now that's unfair. Anyone with a recent degree in a relevant field knows that despite the Times' occasional transgression of conventional "standards of journalistic behavior," it has always been faithful to the underlying metanarrative best calculated to promote the interests of underrepresented outgroups. The goal of "news" is to inform, and that is an end in itself. The substance of the information is technically irrelevant, as that content is always in deliberate or accidental service to some class interest. The important thing is faithfulness to the [i]process[/i] of informing and to the consensus-based metatruth of the class interest to which a speaker owes "allegiance," and the Times has always fulfilled that obligation. Sheesh. Some people. Next thing you know somebody will start yammering about whether news stories are "accurate," as if there were any such thing as accuracy.
