Clueless Commander In Chief … Obama Misspeaks About Medal of Honor Winner Jared Monti Killed in Afghanistan
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PRESIDENT?
Once again Barack Obama, the commander in Chief shows that he has s little regard for the military that Obama cannot even get his facts correct regarding Medal of Honor winner Jared Monti. President Obama went on to to say, as he went off his prepared teleprompter script, that “Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously.” even VP Joe Biden is not capable of this kind of gaffe.
“Throughout my service, first as a senator and then as a presidential candidate and then as a President, I’ve always run into you guys. And for some reason it’s always in some rough spots.
First time I saw 10th Mountain Division, you guys were in southern Iraq. When I went back to visit Afghanistan, you guys were the first ones there. I had the great honor of seeing some of you because a comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously.”
However, there is just one problem. Actually, a rather large problem. … Jared Monti was killed in action in Afghanistan, on June 21, 2006 and he was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously, September 17, 2009. Imagine a Commander in Chief not remembering who and the circumstances of which you give the Medal of Honor to, as if Obama were passing out Obamacare health care exemptions. Which begs the question, imagine how the MSM would react if Sarah Palin made the same gaffe?
How incredibly pathetic that Obama would not remember the giving of a Medal of Honor to an American military hero. Hasn’t Obama said in the past that dealing with the military and being their Commander was of his proudest parts of being President?
UPDATE I: Insensitive clod of a President apologizes to family of fallen America military hero for botching the fact that their son was dead.
