President Barack Obama To Camp Lejeune?

A source tells WITN News preparations are evident President Barack Obama will visit Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base in Jacksonville Friday.

There has been no word from the White House. A Camp Lejeune spokesman said he could neither confirm nor deny the president was planning to visit the base on Friday.

Other media outlets are publishing similar reports.

The Associated Press, the Atlantic Magazine and International Herald Tribune are reporting President Obama could be in North Carolina Friday and may announce news of troop withdrawal from Iraq. The magazine reports Obama will visit Lejeune, while the Tribune reports Obama will possibly visit Lejeune or Fort Bragg in Fayetteville.

It was announced Tuesday the president wants to remove all combat troops from Iraq by August 2010.

As WITN first reported, it was recently announced thousands of Marines from Camp Lejeune will be deploying for Afghanistan.

    I saw on your first page " Remember the Fallen". Are they truly remembered? The president is only 20 minutes from my home. We the "widows" have a surviving spouses support group which not only helps war widows but is willing to provide support to the marines who's spouses pass away which in turns helps the marine corp. Not only have we been "overlooked" but slapped in the face when we read that the blue star families and wounded warriors will be attendance. But truly where will the individuals turn to when their spouses have passed or are killed in action. We are the reality and truth to the untimely death of a marine. But yet one simple request to meet the president by 5 women have been denied. Yet again we are made to see the fact that truly they just want us to disappear so they do not have to see the heartache, pain and our children's pain of not having a father a marine. My husband truly believed that we would be taken care of, but now I know the truth. Think about this.......

    Moderators... please tell what was wrong with that link. It was no different than the one posted early this week about Al Sharpton except this one was actually interesting. So why did it get rejected?

    There are many facets of the globalists - secret societies. If you do some research, you can find out about some of them.

    Obama is a pawn of the globalists. Does anyone out there know who the globalists are? I know Lavon doesn't know!
