I don't know each of your personal political convictions, and apologize if anyone finds this report offensive. I thought it was important enough to
share. This is Jeff's email of his first hand view of Senator Obama on his brief trip to Bagram , Afghanistan .
As you know I am not a very political person. I just wanted to pass along that Senator Obama came to Bagram Afghanistan for about an hour on his
