As Embassies Burned, Obama More Interested in Interviews and Photo Ops
Even as President Obama’s flacks are telling the media that
he is too smart to attend daily intelligence briefings, we are finally finding out what he did on that volatile Friday morning last week when our embassies were burning and 21 countries were erupting in anti-American protests. Instead of worrying about all that, Obama was giving puffball interviews to entertainment magazines and having photo ops.
Instead of spending precious time dealing with the developing crisis in the Mid East and with his foreign policy scheme in a total freefall, on Friday morning, September 14, Obama was giving an interview to the entertainment magazine
People en Español and participating in a photo session with photographer Omar Cruz.
Worse, this puffball interview wasn’t on his
public schedule and was hidden from the public. Wasn’t Obama the one that claimed he’d have the most transparent administration in history?
You might recall that Friday the 14th was the same day that
four flag-draped coffins of those killed at our Libyan embassy were arriving at Andrews Air Force base.
Sadly, the only way the rest of us found out that Obama had conducted this interview hidden from the prying eyes of the public was because the folks that work for the magazine
Tweeted about their visit after the event was over.
I guess we can see why he has no time for daily intelligence briefings.
