The Story Behind Biden’s Emergency Helicopter Landing in Afghanistan

–>”Ladies and gentlemen, where are we now? Where are we now?” Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., said to the National Guard Association today, talking about the war in Afghanistan.

“If you want to know where Al Qaeda lives, you want to know where Bin Laden is, come back to Afghanistan with me,” Biden said. “Come back to the area where my helicopter was forced down, with a three-star general and three senators at 10,500 feet in the middle of those mountains. I can tell you where they are.”

Biden said that Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., “says he’ll follow them to the gates of hell. You don’t have to go to hell. Just go to Pakistan. Just go to that area. That superhighway of terror that exists between Afghanistan and Pakistan.”

We hadn’t heard before about Biden’s helicopter being forced down, so we did some Googling.

 “The superhighway of terror between Pakistan and Afghanistan where my helicopter was forced down…John McCain wants to know where Bin Laden and the gates of Hell are? I can tell him where. That’s where Al Qaeda is. That’s where Bin Laden is. It’s not in the country of Iraq.”

In February 2008, Biden — along with Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Chuck Hagel, R-Neb. — was on a chopper that made an emergency landing in the mountains of Afghanistan.

A snowstorm had forced them down.

No one was injured, and the Associated Press reported at the time that “the senators and their delegation returned to Bagram Air Base in a motor convoy, and left for Turkey.

“The weather closed in on us,” Kerry told the AP at the time in a phone interview from Turkey. “It went pretty blind, pretty fast and we were around some pretty dangerous ridges. So the pilot exercised his judgment that we were better off putting down there, and we all agreed…We sat up there and traded stories.”

Kerry joked, “We were going to send Biden out to fight the Taliban with snowballs, but we didn’t have to do it…Other than getting a little cold, it was fine.”

Video: Biden’s Off The Wall FDR – Depression Comment Not A First – Watch Biden Claim His Plan On Iraq Is Working

Senator Biden’s comments yesterday claiming that FDR addressed the Country on TV during the Great Depression – https://mcauleysworld.wordpress.com/2008/09/23/oops-biden-slips-suggests-fdr-was-president-when-market-crashed/ are not the first unusual comments made by the Senator during this Campaign.

THE SET UP

Senator Biden once called for a Plan to Partition or divide Iraq into three separate Countries. The Plan was, naturally enough, trashed. The Iraqis, and I do mean ALL THE IRAQI’S, all parties, all sides, even al-Queda, called the plan a bad idea.

Biden was even called an Imperialist (as insults go – it doesn’t get any worse in the middle east).

Biden’s response to the universal rejection of his plan, “Who the Hell do they think they are?”. Well the answer is – they are the Iraqi’s – it is their Country. They want to keep it in one piece. Biden just couldn’t let it go …….

FAST FORWARD 

Months later Biden tried to claim that “my plan for Iraq is working”. See the video here: http://embeds.blogs.foxnews.com/2008/09/07/biden-says-his-tripartite-plan-for-iraq-is-working/

Can someone remind the Senator that his plan was rejected – it really was a stinker. Wait till tomorrow to let him know that FDR wasn’t the President during the Great Depression and TV’s hadn’t been invented at the time. You know ….. bring him up to speed a little bit at a time.

OOPS – Biden Slips, Suggests FDR Was President When Market Crashed

WASHINGTON — Vice presidential candidate Joe Biden says today’s leaders should take a lesson from the history books and follow fellow Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt’s response to a financial crisis.

“When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened,”‘ Barack Obama’s running mate recently told the “CBS Evening News.”

Except, Republican Herbert Hoover was in office when the stock market crashed in October 1929. There also was no television at the time; TV wasn’t introduced to the public until a decade later, at the 1939 World’s Fair.

FDR was elected three years later when voters denied Hoover a second term. The Democratic challenger appealed to the “forgotten man” by promising a “new deal” to solve the Depression era.

Biden was commenting on the stock market crash when he said leaders should explain the current economic crisis and how to solve it to the public. 

“Part of what being a leader does is to instill confidence, is to demonstrate what he or she knows what they are talking about and to communicating to people … this is how we can fix this,” Biden said.

NOTHING NEW HERE – OBAMA & BIDEN – DON’T LET THE FACTS GET IN THE WAY OF YOUR STORY. I HAVE TO ADMIT – HIS GAFFES MAKE ME SMILE.

Sarah Palin’s actual Words on The Iraq War, God, Prayer and our Troops

PRESIDENTS LINCOLN & KENNEDY – GOD AND GOVERNMENT SERVICE 

Liberal pundits and bloggers are attacking Governor Palin for comments she made to a Church Congregation.

What Palin said was this,

“Pray for our Military men and woman who are striving to do what is also right for this Country. Pray that our leaders, our National Leaders, are sending them on a task that is from God. That is what we must pray for. That there is a plan and that plan is God’s plan. So bless them with your prayers – prayers and protection over our soldiers.” You can watch Governor’s Palin’s comments here.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9H-btXPfhGs

Governor Palin does not refer to the War in Iraq as “God’s War” or a “Holy War”. She asked that a prayer be said that the “task” the soldiers were being asked to perform was a “task” that God approved of.  That the congregation pray that our National Leaders had a plan, and that God approved of that Plan.

Somehow the liberal pundits and the hateful bloggers interpret these comments as referencing a “Holy War” or “God’s War”. How strange. Her meaning is clear enough. Of course, there is a very high probability, that these detractors really know there is no substance to their rants. 

Governor Palin has explained that she was attempting to reference Abraham Lincoln with her comments. Lincoln’s famous quote in this regard was, “Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.”

President Lincoln also said, “In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both may be, and one must be wrong.”   http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/a/abraham_lincoln.html

Lincoln’s concern – am I on God’s side. He acknowledged that both sides may claim to be on God’s side – and one would be wrong.

President John F Kennedy once stated, “Our goal is not victory of might but the vindication of right — not peace at the expense of freedom, but both peace and freedom, here in this hemisphere and, we hope, around the world. God willing, that goal will be achieved.”

President Kennedy also stated, “The supreme reality of our time is our indivisibility as children of God and the common vulnerability of this planet. Let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.”   http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/John_F._Kennedy

Kennedy’s themes – right not might, peace not at the expense of freedom but peace with freedom, that we are all children of God, we should ask his blessing and His help and that God’s work must truly be our own. 

 It maybe just that the Obama surrogates, Liberal Pundits and hateful bloggers detest references to God. They are clearly misrepresenting the context of Governor Palin’s message. 

Her message was a simple one, not complex or convoluted. Her message is one that would have been shared by both Lincoln and Kennedy: We are children of God, We should ask his blessings in our endeavors, that it time of war – the question is not “is God on my side” – rather we should pray that our actions meet with his approval. 

As Governor Palin continues to weather the unwarranted personal attacks, lies and inuendo of this campaign, I’d like to offer her a quote from Mother Teresa, 

“Anyway People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people will accuse you of ulterior motives. Do good anyway. If you are successful you win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway. People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for some underdogs anyway. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. People really need help but may attack you if you help them. Help people anyway. Give the world the best you have and you”ll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you”ve got anyway”.  http://www.wise-quotes.com/quotes-topic/god

Yes, Mother Teresa made this statement.

Targeting Trig Palin – Obama supporters go negative on a baby: WSJ BEST OF THE WEB by By James Taranto

“South Carolina Democratic chairwoman Carol Fowler sharply attacked Sarah Palin [yesterday], saying John McCain had chosen a running mate ‘whose primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion,’ ” Politico reports. Fowler later apologized “to anyone who finds my comment offensive.”

We’ll leave the offense to others. We find Fowler’s comment revealing and disturbing. And she is not alone in striking this theme. Here is Andrew “Beagle With a Smear” Sullivan of The Atlantic:

And then, because [John McCain] could see he was going to lose, ten days ago, he threw caution to the wind and with no vetting whatsoever, picked a woman who, by her decision to endure her own eight-month pregnancy of a Down Syndrome child in public, that he was going to reignite the culture war as a last stand against Obama.

Sullivan loses control of his syntax, but Salon’s Cintra Wilson manages to make a similar point with flawless grammar:

Sarah Palin is a bit comical, like one of those cutthroat Texas cheerleader stage moms. What her Down syndrome baby and pregnant teenage daughter unequivocally prove, however, is that her most beloved child is the antiabortion platform that ensures her own political ambitions with the conservative right.

This is worse than tasteless or even unhinged. It is depraved. It represents an inversion of any reasonable conception of right and wrong, including liberal conceptions.

Fowler uses Palin’s motherhood to disparage her accomplishments, an obvious betrayal of the principle of women’s equality. And although proponents of permissive abortion laws nearly always claim to support not abortion but “a woman’s right to choose,” here we have three of them rebuking Palin for choosing not to abort her baby.

Sullivan and Wilson go further, ascribing evil intent to an act of maternal love. To Sullivan, Palin’s decision to carry her child to term is a salvo in a “culture war”–that is, an act of aggression against those with different political views. (That, at least, is how he sees it for the purpose of this post. In an earlier one, he praised her for going through “eight months of pregnancy and a painful, difficult, endless labor for a cause she believes in”–which, although considerably less obnoxious, still depicts the decision as a political rather than a personal one.)

To Wilson, Palin’s adherence to her own principles about the sanctity of life is an act of neglect toward her children–proof “that her most beloved child is the antiabortion platform.” Never mind that the alternative would have ensured that one of her actual children did not live.

Both Sullivan and Wilson make a point of highlighting Trig Palin’s handicap. Indeed, both his more recent post and her article refer to Trig only by his handicap. If this were all you had heard about him, you’d think his name was Down Syndrome Child Palin.

In their defense, one might note that Sarah Palin, too, is using Trig as a symbol. But there is a world of difference between humanizing a political candidate and dehumanizing a 4-month-old baby.

None of this can be explained in terms of political calculation. Scorning a woman for declining to abort a disabled child is likely to be about as persuasive to voters as burning an American flag. These ugly sentiments have to be sincere. In a way, that makes them even more disquieting.
