Soldier Fulfilling Promise To Deliver Afghani Rug To President Bush

MARION - Grayson Gile may have completed his broader mission in Afghanistan as a member of the Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force, but he returned stateside with a mission of a more personal nature. Gile's mission - one he chose to embrace - involves a very special rug handcrafted by an Afghan man anxious to show his gratitude to President George W. Bush for this country's efforts to bring democracy to Afghanistan.

Oh, this can't be true! We all KNOW from our media that they hate us over there!? (Smile)

Funny, an American friend of mine sent me an email tonight with a link to a guy who's a friend of hers and is over in Iraq after two years of being Stateside...he writes for ABC.......saying HOW AWFUL things are in Baghdad..SO much worse than they were 2 years ago. This genius friend writes with the attachment "you will love Terry's reports..he's SO 'spot on'" Isn't that just typical? SHE has never been to Iraq, but she knows whatever HE says is 'spot on'......especially if it's bemoaning Baghdad instead of remembering most Iraqis are begging us to stay.
