    The following is an excerpt of an email that came from an officer assigned
    in the Pentagon. His office lost several people. I have only sent the part
    of his email as it is worth getting an opportunity for this type of insight
    into our Commander-in Chief.

    ---------------------

    All,

    We are finally back up on email this morning. Those of us here at the
    Pentagon greatly appreciate all of the thoughts and prayers from the many
    people that are, and have been, in our lives. Please continue to pray.
    Thank you very much.


    The mood here is very upbeat in regard to the future. Many people here
    believe the country's leadership will do what needs to be done, the right
    way. Please pray for them as well because they need every prayer they can
    get. Regardless of politics, many of us here, and many others that I have
    spoken to, are very grateful that we have the President and First Lady we
    have at this time. He and she seem to be very much the right people that we
    need now, and up to the tasks at hand and ahead.

    At the risk of moving away from my belief, as an officer serving in the
    United States Army, that it is an inherent duty of mine to ensure that my
    opinions in this general arena are not put out for public consumption, good
    or bad, regardless of who is in the White House, let me leave you with a
    small, but true story to give you an idea of the kind of man and the kind of
    woman we have in the White House right now.

    As you may know, the President and Mrs. Bush visited the Washington Burn
    Center on Friday 14 September. Among those they visited was LTC Brian
    Birdwell, the XO to Ms. Menig (Note added: she is the Army's Deputy Assistant
    Chief of Staff for Installation Management), who was badly burned. Mrs. Bush
    went into Brian's room, spoke to him for about a minute, all the time as if they
    had been life-long acquaintances. She then turned to Brian's wife Mel, who at
    this time had been at the hospital for probably 2 ½ days, and apparently
    according to Mel herself, was dirty, grimy and had blood on her shirt. Mrs.
    Bush hugged Mel for what Mel said seemed like an eternity, just as if Mel
    were one of her closest family members. Mrs. Bush then told Brian and Mel
    that there was "someone" there to see him. The President then walked in,
    stood by Brian's bedside, asked Brian how he was doing, told him that he was
    very proud of them both and that they were his heroes. The President then
    saluted Brian.

    Now, at this point in time, Brian is bandaged up pretty well. His hands are
    burned very badly as well as the back of him from the head down. His
    movements were very restricted. Upon seeing the President saluting him,
    Brian began to slowly return the salute, taking, from the accounts so far,
    about 15-20 seconds to get his hand up to his head. During all of this,
    15-20 seconds, President Bush never moved, never dropped his salute. The
    President dropped his salute only when Brian was finished with his, and then
    gave Mel a huge hug for what also probably seemed like an eternity.

    No further comments. Pray for our leadership. Thank God for what
    we are, have, and will be.

    I was talking to my father this morning over breakfast about Bush's personality.

    He appears to be a bulldog, the type of man who takes a strong head on approach. But look at that whole scandal with the elections. There is a chance he played sort of underhandedly there, and it can only be to our benefit if he uses his same sly tricks in this situation.

    This kind of sailed over my head.

    Just exactly what are "his same sly tricks"?

    Don't know what mango is talking about.

    But that story danged near teared me up. I doubt Clinton even knows how to give a proper salute.

    Do you not remember all the controversy around Florida? The recounts, Gore taking the whole thing to court?

    All I am saying is that it is possible that foul play occurred.
    I do not know how else to explain it.

    Yeah, and with Richard "Little Dick" Daly as his point man, I think we can all rest assured that all the shenanigans were on the Democrat side...

    The name "Daly" along with the words "Punch card Ballots" when used together, are synonymous with the words "Vote Fraud."

    Just ask anybody from Cooke County, Illinois...

    Steve, America got the best end of the deal out of Fl. The Democrats tried to steal it and right won. Some people just won't let it lie. It is behind us now and we have the right man for the job of running our country.

    Let me be the first to admit I am being very unscientific. I am just stating rumor I have heard. I have absolutely no facts to back me up. But I'm hoping Bush is a wily bastard.

    Wily as in Wile E. Coyote.

    I am not sure who we could have in office that would do a better job. Reagan comes to mind. He would probably be throwning nukes at them.

    Sorry guys. I had to look "Wily" up in the dictionary meaning SLY. I imagine, he's got a few tricks up his sleeve!

    I asked my father who he thought could do better. Maybe Reagan?

    He said Reagan would be nuking them by now!
