President Barack Obama took some tough questions from a betrayed Mika Brzezinski in an interview broadcast Monday morning.
The president began by defending his decision to withdraw entirely from Iraq – a move he said was not his decision but Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s as recently as Friday. “Unless we are prepared to stay indefinitely in all these various countries, something that we can’t afford and would involve over time accusations that we were occupying these countries, at some stage they’re going to have to take responsibility for working together,” the president said.
The interesting thing about all this is the sight of the normally lap-sucking Obama media actually tossing tough questions at Obama about the Middle East. I suspect the answer has more to do with journalists looking at fat retirement job offers from Saudi-funded foundations than it does with any actual dislike of Obama himself.
I wonder if all these hacks have registered as foreign agents?
