Obama awards Medal of Honor to Afghan war veteran

SGT Carter

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama bestowed the Medal of Honor on Army Staff Sgt. Ty Carter on Monday, saluting the veteran of the war in Afghanistan as “the essence of true heroism.”

Carter risked his life to save an injured soldier and to resupply ammunition to his comrades during intense fighting in a remote mountain outpost four years ago.

“As these soldiers and families will tell you, they’re a family forged in battle, and loss, and love,” Obama said as Carter stood at his side and members of his unit watched in the White House East Room.

The Oct. 3, 2009, battle occurred while Carter was stationed at Command Outpost Keating. U.S. troops were vastly outnumbered by 400 Taliban fighters. SOURCE

The first, and foremost thing I have to say here is to Staff Sgt. Ty Carter; YOU young man are the very fiber and embodiment of all things an American soldier is and should be! I salute you and your efforts, your bravery, your dedication and I feel that you are as deserving of this Medal of Honor as anyone that has ever received it.

YOU are living proof that American courage is NOT dead.

Now I feel that I must say this; having the Medal of Honor presented by Barack Hussein Obama, the most dishonorable president in American history, is a disgrace to the Medal itself and lessens it importance in MY personal opinion.

In February, Obama bestowed the Medal of Honor on another survivor of that firefight, former Staff Sgt. Clinton Romesha.

It was the first time since the Vietnam War that two survivors of the same battle were presented with the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military honor.

As stated above, YOU Staff Sgt. Carter are totally deserving of this great honor, as is Staff Sgt. Clinton Romesha and you will be honored for the rest of your lives, as is only right.

There is one thing I wish you or Romesha had done though; I wish at least one of you had taken the very difficult road of making a decision to NOT accept the Medal of Honor from Barack Hussein Obama. I wish that at least one of you had stood and said, ‘Mr. President, I am going to decline this honor and do so because you Sir are the most dishonorable president in American history and I feel that the very fact that you even touched this Medal only denigrates it and cheapens its virtue.’

“Let me say it as clearly as I can to any of our troops or veterans who are watching and struggling,” Obama said. “Look at this man. Look at this soldier. Look at this warrior. He’s as tough as they come, and if he can find the courage and the strength to not only seek help but also to speak out about it, to take care of himself and to stay strong, then so can you.”

And let me say it as clearly as I can, Barack Hussein Obama, you are NOT a warrior. You are NOT tough. You have NO courage, no honor and no disenable leadership skills.

You, Barack Hussein Obama, are a disgrace to this nation and everything it has ever stood for!

    Ummm… Fred, that would in all probability lead to a Court Marshall or at minimum some level of serious disciplinary action.

    We have in the past talked about these things. About how one can say; “I’m just a MARINE Sir. That’s my job.” “RANGER Sir! That is what we do for a living.” “AIRBORNE Sir, enough said Sir!”

    As you know I train, and my organization led the way to priority veteran hiring. I had a team, if you recall, from The Working Men. Two finer young men I have never met. They were also among the first to come to the aid of this outpost. As Spencer described his approach I was reminded of the 73 invasion. The fight was far from over and that young man will be marked by it forever.

    The Army Medal of Honor. EARNED, not won, by an INFANTRYMAN, in an INFANTRY way! Hoo RAH! Soldier!

    The BHO isn’t fit to drink your piss from a shithouse side scrump! Hell, even a Jarhead Brat such as myself can see that!

      Oh, I realize the *ramifications* but I still think the discharge might be worth it…

      Brother Stalkingbears white water huh?? Damn you Patrick, DAMN YOU! I’d love to make the trip to his house to let him *tune* my XD’s and to sip some of that magnificent nectar.. :P

    Frankly, I cannot fault the soldiers for this.

    At their age, they have little into which they may base their historical references.

    You and I, as old as we are, have a much greater perspective that younger men totally lack.

    It is a perspective that Obama and Leftists cannot wait to erase. In order to enable their own personal version of Historical Alzheimers.

    In order to enable Cloward-Piven.

    Take this country down. Take it way down.

    This soldier will live to ponder the medal received by him from BHO.

    I don’t think that will be an enviable position for this hero to find himself in.

    Good to see you back in the groove Fred.

    And a sad reminder of Obama’s miserable foreign policy, or lack thereof. After all of this sacrifice of blood and treasure. Now we will see if he can manage to screw up Syria and find a way for the terrorists to get ahold of the wmd’s. 100,000 dead Syrians not so bad. A couple of hundred dead by who knows who via who knows what and off to war we go. Sorry for going off topic.

    The POS should not be allow to present a “Dog Catchers Award”!

    I would support an act of congress that would ONLY allow the presentation of the MOH by the Commander of the recipients unit or one officer in the chain of command.

    It should in ALL cases be presented with great pageantry in the PRESENCE of the Commander-in-Chief or his designated appointee.

    With the exception of Honorably Discharged Veterans these GD show-boat politicians should not even be allowed to stand on the same stage as these hero’s.

    It’s all about making political hay for them as BHO has shown us here.

    So much for free speech. Unlike our right to pornography in our homes and on our cellphones 24/7 a soldier or ex-soldier cannot profess his disdain for a dishonorable, disgraceful traitorous bucket of shit like Obama.

  7. BobF says:

    One think that bothers me is that Bush never presented a Medal of Honor to a living GI. Everyone he presented was posthumously. I’m glad to finally see some well deserving troops who are still with us finally get recognized with our nations greatest decoration.

    That said, it disgusts me that it’s Obama presenting the Medal. He has an immense disdain for our Armed Forces and to him they’re only value is a photo op. His Pentagon, yes, his civilian controlled Pentagon, has not only labeled Conservatives as extremists but also this nations Founding Fathers.

    I know a retired Colonel who told me that back when Clinton took office, they kept a stack of retirement certificates with HW Bush’s signature to certain Senior NCO’s and Officers upon retirement so they wouldn’t be disgraced by Clinton’s signature on their certificate. I’m wondering if any did that when Obama took office?
