Obama couldn’t just let the D-Day ceremonies in Normandy be all about the celebration of brave men and women.
Someone thought it was a great opportunity to collaborate with NBC, secure prime air time and make yet another strong statement about how he was right and Congress – along with the rest of America – can go suck wind.
“NBC Nightly News” and “Brian Williams Reporting: Journey to Normandy,” aired an exclusive, well-rehearsed version of President Obama’s defiant defense of his exchange of five senior Taliban prisoners for a possible U.S. deserter who the administration insists served honorably.
In the scripted softball interview Obama showed no shame or hesitation in answering why Congress was kept in the dark.
It was a “unanimous decision” by “my government,” Obama said, in his arrogant response.
“I make no apologies for it,” he began, following his familiar “leave no man behind” mantra. ” It was a unanimous decision by my principals in my government . . . ”
“This is something that I would do again, and I will continue to do wherever I have an opportunity, if I have a member of our military who’s in captivity.”
