Default Obama Orders Military NOT To Fly U.S. Flag in Haiti

http://www.navytimes.com/news/2010/0...i_flag_031510/

Quote:
The Obama administration says flying the flag could give Haiti the wrong idea.
"We are not here as an occupation force, but as an international partner committed to supporting the government of Haiti on the road to recovery," the U.S. government's Haiti Joint Information Center said in response to a query about the flag.
What the fukc is the matter with this guy/administration.

I think that's just plain silly. He needs to be a little less PC.

It matters to me, as its just one more kick in the pants from Obama, the US President who wont put his hand over his heart, or salute the flag.

The missing American colors at Port-au-Prince airport were no problem to Don Hollenbaugh, a former Army Delta Force operator who received the Distinguished Service Cross for actions in Fallujah, Iraq, in 2004.

"Everybody in the world knows the U.S. is there," Hollenbaugh said. "So by not flying the flag, we're not changing anyone's mind about anything."
If this guy doesn't care, I don't either.

P.S. I want to hear you guys bitching about this when do it, too:

Considering most actions that Delta Force is apart of also doesn't fly colors I can see where it's not big deal to him

I suppose this was Obama's doing as well:

Quote:
During the Gulf War in 1991, U.S. forces took control of the main airport in Kuwait and briefly flew the American flag over their installation, Davis said, but higher-ups ordered it taken down to avoid an impression that U.S. forces were conquerors.

Flying the flag should be the choice of the commander on the ground. I don't know that many soldiers really care. We should not be there to begin with. At least in Iraq we were eliminating a threat. In Haiti we are standing-up dominos to be knocked down by voodoo and the next hurricane or earthquake. Until the Haitians make the choice to build a solid infrastructure they are a doomed society.
