Charlie Daniels Latest His Open Letter To Harry Reid

An open letter to Harry Reid and all the rest of the short sighted, self serving, politically activated politicos who want to pull our troops out of Iraq before they have a chance to complete the job they're doing.

Mr. Reid et al,

I see where you tried again this week to force a timetable for the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq and your proposal failed again.

You people in Washington claim to know the mind of the American people. I beg to differ with you and would offer up in evidence just how out of touch you are with the American people by reminding you of what happened when you tried to shove that ridiculous Amnesty Bill down our throats.

You also claim to support the troops but if you really did you would separate and pass the part of the bill that raises pay for the military. If you really support the troops that's the least you could do.

You say that little or no progress has been made in Iraq. I guess the execution of Saddam and his maniacal sons was not a good thing. And the destruction or detainment of scores of Al Qaida operatives don't count.

Mr. Reid I have been told by a high ranking officer serving in Iraq that they fight Al Qaida every day and that if we don't defeat them over there, they will come to America.

Just whose word do I take for that, a General who actually faces the enemy every day or an expensively coiffed Presidential candidate who says the war is just a bumper sticker?

It is truly a shame for a 70-year-old man who has lived through many wars and threats to this nation to make this statement and I take absolutely no pleasure in making it. But the truth of the matter is that I am more afraid of you and your ilk than I am of the terrorists.

Why? Because you would try to micromanage our military and a war you obviously don't understand, you would do away with Guantanamo Bay and cut the heart out of the Homeland Security Act leaving America basically
impotent in the war on terror.

Another Al Qaida bigwig was captured recently and he is singing like a French canary and one of the things he has divulged is that there is a connection between Osama bin Ladin and al Qaida in Iraq.

America has military forces that are able and willing to pursue the war on terror on whatever part of the globe it raises its ugly head. We have intelligence agencies who do an incredible job of uncovering terrorist plots.

And no, Mr. Reid, the CIA, the FBI and the other Federal Intelligence Agencies are not the bungling bunch of keystone cops they are portrayed as by some of your media friends.

If you've noticed we've not been attacked in this country since 9-11 and that has not been because the enemy has not been trying. And I thank God for protecting this nation.

Could it be that you want to pull the troops out because they are making real headway and you're afraid it will hurt you politically?

If so I just don't have the vocabulary to express my contempt for you.

Mr. Reid et al, if you really want to do something worthwhile why don't you pass a bill putting all terrorists on the extinct species list?

I've said it before and I'll say it again. The only good terrorist is a dead terrorist.

Pray for our troops.

What do you think?

God Bless America

Charlie, you have all the vocabulary you need. Thank you for your patriotism and your loyalty. Thank you for your support of the troops by entertaining them and vocally backing them.

Way to go Charlie!
Many of us out here have wanted to string up that pencil necked geek, Heartless Harry for a long, long time.
You just did.
Thank you.
God Bless you too!

Charlie Daniels ~ Thank you!
The thought of Baghdad Harry and the rest of his cohorts sitting around discussing their strategy for winning and keeping "seats" while getting more of our troops killed due to their total self absorption and greed, just makes my blood boil.
CD is so right - IMO the politicians are worse than the terrorists. At least we can get the terrorists and make them go away. Politicians like Reid never seem to go away and continue chipping a part all this country stands for.

I wish I could have said it that well.
