Monday, November 15, 2010George Bush's Top-SecretThanksgiving Dinner
Traveling underextraordinary secrecy to ensure his safety, President George W. Bush made asurprise Thanksgiving visit to American troops in Baghdad in November of 2003.According to a USA Today news report, Bush “shared a holiday dinner with U.S.troops in a military mess hall at Baghdad International Airport."
Wearing a grey army jacket and with his eyes reportedly wetwith tears, Bush strode out as about six hundred American soldiers leapt totheir feet and cheered. In his remarks, the president said:
Thank you for inviting me to dinner...I can't think of afiner group of folks to have Thanksgiving dinner with than you all. We're proudof you. Today, Americans are gathering with their loved ones to give thanks forthe many blessings in our lives. And this year we are especially thankful forthe courage and the sacrifice of those who defend us, the men and women of theUnited States military...
You're engaged in a difficult mission. Those who attack ourcoalition forces and kill innocent Iraqis are testing our will. They hope wewill run. We did not charge hundreds of miles into the heart of Iraq, pay abitter cost in casualties, defeat a brutal dictator and liberate 25 millionpeople only to retreat before a band of thugs and assassins...
A VERY RARE COLLECTIBLE.
