    I wonder how this can be checked out to see if it's true?


    Military to Pledge Oath To Obama,NotConstitution???


    Secretary of Defense Robert Gates is extremely frustrated with orders that the White House is contemplating. According to
    sources at the Pentagon, including all branches of the armed forces, the Obama Administration may break with a centuries-old tradition.

    A spokesman for General James Cartwright, the Vice
    Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, states that the Obama Administration wants to have soldiers and officers pledge a loyalty oath directly to the office of the President, and no longer to the Constitution.

    "The oath to the Constitution is as old as the document itself." the spokesman said, "At no time in American history, not even in the Civil War, did the oath change or the subject of the oath differ. It has always been to the Constitution."

    The back-and-forth between the White House and the
    efense Department was expected as President George W. Bush left office.

    President Obama has already signed orders to close Guantanamoand to pull combat troops from Iraq But, this, say many at the Defense Department, goes too far.

    "Technically, we can't talk about it before it becomes official policy." the spokesman continued. "However, the Defense Department, including the Secretary, will not take this laying down. Expect a fight from the bureaucracy and the brass."

    Sources at the White House had a different point
    of view. In a circular distributed by White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, the rationale for the change was made more clear.

    "The President feels that the military has been
    too indoctrinated by the old harbingers of hate: nationalism, racism, and classism. By removing an oath to the American society, the soldiers are less likely to commit atrocities like those at Abu Ghraib."

    "We expect a lot of flak over this," the
    classified memo continues. "But those that would be mostagainst it are those looking either for attention or control."

    The time frame for the changes are unknown. However, it is more likely that the changes will be made around the July 4th
    holiday, in order to dampen any potential backlash. The difference in the oath will actually only be slight. The main differences will be the new phrasing. It is expected that the oath to the Constitution will be entirely phased out within
    two years.

    CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS CRAP!!! WHAT'S NEXT....IS HE GOING TO ASK THE ALLEGIANCE OF ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS & SET HIMSELF UP AS GOD TO BE WORSHIPPED???
    THIS FRAUD & TRAITOR (Obama) TO THE UNITED STATES
    NEEDS TO BE IMPEACHED UNDER THE LAWS OF OUR CONSTITUTION.

    IF YOU'RE AS OUTRAGED BY THIS AS I AM...PASS IT ON
    SO OTHERS KNOW WHAT THIS SNEAKY FRAUD IS UP TO BEHIND CLOSED DOORS!

    The source was an email from a friend, forwarded to me. I certainly hope it is not true as it would destroy the complete fabric of our Armed Forces
    which I suspect the majority would not comply.

    I swore as did and do the Armed Forces to protect the US Constitution and any other oath is an invitation to disaster and the final ruin of our old Republic which has served us so long. Watch those people in Washington with the eye of an Eagle, an inch at a time down the socialism/dictator type government adds up more quickly that you think.
