Obama: Made For TV or the Real Deal?

Subject: First Hand Report on BarackObama's visit to Afghanistan

This is a first hand account from the cousin of one of our friends.

I don't know each of your personal political convictions,
but I thought it was important enough to share.
This is Jeff's first hand view of Senator Obama.

This confirms my own thoughts. Wish it could be put on the mainstream news, but they conveniently turn their backs to the truth, and don't report it. Thanks.
