Friends -

I am forwarding this email from an old and trusted ex-POW friend of mine, LCOL Orson Swindle, USMC(Ret).  Even if you choose to not read it all, I urge you to take a quick look at the attached pdf file, a copy of today's full-page ad in the Washington Times, placed by retired Admirals and Generals who support Mitt Romney for President.

From other sources you may find a list of senior officers, who support Obama - at last count, I saw only FIVE names listed!  If the numbers comparison doesn't "speak" to you - and forcefully - then I must assume that your respect for our country's military is very similar to President Obama's, and I will have wasted my time including you on this list!

I won't apologize for that, but I will be saddened to find that you have such little regard for the men and women of our country, who voluntarily put their lives on the line, each and every day, so that the rest of us can enjoy the "good life" Americans have come to take for granted.  It is, after all, a "free country", but please do not forget those who won that freedom for us, and who continue to serve and protect our republic!  To properly provide that protection, our troops must have good, sound, experienced leadership, the kind of leadership endorsed by this enormous list of career General and Flag Officers - please, very seriously consider their highly informed recommendation for the person to become America's next Commander-In-Chief!

Al Carpenter

Attached is a full page ad that will run in the Washington Times on
Monday, 5 Nov.

This ad is not being placed by the campaign. This is being placed by
the admirals and generals on the list. We devoted our lives to the
defense and security of our nation and feel the Obama administration is
not serving us well in this regard.

Please feel free to share the attachment with everyone on your e-mail
list. It would be nice if this were all over the country by Monday

McCain calls for special committee on Libya, says public outcry will lead charge

Published November 03, 2012

Sen. John McCain stepped up his request Saturday for the Obama administration to give a complete account of the fatal attacks last month on U.S. outposts in Libya, urging the chamber's top Republican and Democrat to create a special committee to investigate the matter.

McCain, Arizona senator and ranking Republican on the Senate Committee on Armed Services, told he wants a committee investigation because "that's the only way for the American people to find out what happened."

He made the request with fellow Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina, and Kelly Ayotte, New Hampshire, who have helped lead the charge on Capitol Hill for more answers.

U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and U.S. diplomat Sean Smith were killed in a Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Several hours later, two former Navy SEALs, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, were killed by a mortar shell in a second attack on a nearby CIA annex.

The letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, asks for a temporary Select Committee to investigate events that led to the murders and the administration's response to the attacks.

Five days after the attack, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said on several Sunday talk shows that the attacks were "spontaneous" and sparked by a wave of violence in the region over an anti-Islamic video.

The administration has since said the strikes were terrorist attacks and that it is awaiting the findings of an investigation.

President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have said they as much as anybody want to get to the bottom of the situation.

McCain acknowledge to Fox on Saturday that getting the Democrat-controlled Senate to form a committee will be a challenge but thinks there's enough outcry from military veterans and other Americans to force the issue.

He also said the request – three days before the presidential election– throws water on the Obama campaign's argument that Republicans and others have stayed on the issue to influence the outcome of the race.

"They began politicizing it by saying it was spontaneous and the president staying with that line," McCain said.

Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Saturday, "when the final report is completed, it will be released."

"This is a tragedy but this is not the time to politicize a tragedy," she continued.

The letter also states such a committee could include members of the House and Senate and cut across multiple executive agencies and legislative committees.
