Gee, wouldn’t you like to know what President Obama talked about when he met earlier with all of those national security journalists? Of course, there weren’t really any conservatives invited. What was he doing, just making sure he gets his talking points out there while schmoozing with his base of supporters?
President Obama held a private meeting with top national security journalists on Thursday afternoon following his national security policy address at the National Defense University in Washington, POLITICO has learned.
Present at the meeting were Thomas Friedman, the New York Times columnist; Gerald Seib, the Wall Street Journal’s Washington bureau chief; Fred Hiatt [the only non-lib -ed.], the editorial page editor of the Washington Post; David Igantius, the Washington Post columnist; Jeffrey Goldberg, the Atlantic correspondent and Bloomberg View columnist; and Joe Klein, the Time Magazine columnist.
The meeting, which was scheduled to last for one hour but lasted for two, was held in the Roosevelt Room of the White House.
That little part in brackets came from Weasel Zippers, where it was noted that Obama is just coordinating his propaganda effort.
Obviously, Michelle Malkin wasn’t in attendance.
Gird your loins, America. President Obama intends to empty out Guantanamo Bay and send scores of suspected Muslim terror operatives back to their jihadist-coddling native countries. Goaded by anti-war activists and soft-on-terror attorneys (including those from Attorney General Eric Holder’s former private law firm), Obama announced Thursday that he’ll lift a ban on sending up to 90 Yemeni detainees home and will initiate other stalled transfers out of the compound.
This radical appeasement of Obama’s left flank is a surefire recipe for more Benghazis, more U.S.S. Coles and more innocent lives at risk.
Read the whole thing. The world is going to become an even more dangerous place, but you probably won’t hear about that from any of the so-called journalists who met privately with the president for two hours.
