KABUL, Afghanistan (Apr. 24, 2011) – U.S. Air Force servicemembers serving at Kabul, Afghanistan, had an opportunity to eat and talk with Mr. Daniel Ginsberg, assistant secretary for Manpower and Reserve Affairs, U.S. Air Force, for Easter dinner at the Supreme Dining Facility at ISAF. Ginsberg met with senior leaders and ground troops in a trip focused on ensuring senior leaders had the support they need and troops had proper training, and to answer questions from troops regarding force-shaping initiatives and the future structure of the Air Force. Additionally, Ginsberg intended to take a closer look at the aero-medical evacuation and treatment facilities for servicemembers wounded in combat in hopes of improving the number who can receive adequate care during the “golden hour.” The golden hour is the first hour after injury where, if treated during that time, the servicemembers have a 95 percent survival rate.

After stuff like this and the disruption of the minute of silence during Remembrance Day these guys still expect the rest of the world to sympathize with them...


When it was known that William not only went to Afghanistan but also didn't sit all day long in some FOB I felt a huge respect for him and his family.
I wish and truly believe that in not so long future you British at last will do something nasty to these bunch of morons.

The nastiest thing you can do to these morons is ignore them. Seriously that is why they say such over the top stuff, just like Westboro they want attention and press at any cost. Back in the days when I was actively tilting at windmills we were much more pissed when our stunts were ignored, and charges dropped then when the press and police made a big deal about it. A few busted heads is well worth it for the publicity and sympathy. Long drawn out court fights are good for coalition building. A short detention and charges dropped was a real letdown.

Congratulations Maj. Federigan!

BTW, any new recruit would be chewed out for standing around with his hands in his pockets like that... p-)

What bugs me most about these guys is they carry on about the oppression of the Moslem peoples and yet where are they? Safe and sound in the UK, not in Eygpt, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan etc etc etc where their "brothers" are being oppressed and dying. They cry crocodile tears for those killed by the west and are silent when Moslem kills Moslem as they are doing in Libya and Syria, as Saddam did in Iraq.

They are cowards who in all probability have never known a second of anything harder than not being able to get mobile phone reception. As for sending them back I would be surprised if any of them were actually born in a moslem country.
