The Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces, Barry Obama's treasonous behavior continues on unabated. After the media and military publicly excoriated the President for saluting U.S. Marines with a Starbuck cup in his right hand, Obama ordered the Pentagon-sponsored newspaper, Stars & Stripes, to defend his un-American actions.
Stars & Stripes reports that, "The idea that President Barack Obama is anti-American or anti-military achieved a little more leverage recently from his inadvertent “latte salute.” As Obama exited Marine One, his salute with a coffee cup in his hand, returned to two attending Marines at the bottom of the steps, was admittedly casual, considerably removed from the best military practice."
Additionally, Obama added fuel to the fire by assigning a Texan, who teaches English to illegal immigrants at Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, to write a Op-Ed defense of the 'Latte Salute.'
"But," according to Stars & Stripes, "if the political right strains to put the darkest spin on Obama’s careless salute, let’s stretch this issue in the other direction for a moment and celebrate the remarkable fact of civilian leadership of our armed forces. Obama is not a soldier or sailor, never has been, and that’s not a bad thing. In our society the military does not drive policy or ideology but is, rather, a powerful arm controlled by civilians on behalf of the rest of us civilians."
The editorial was authored by John M. Crisp, who teaches Chicano Studies in English at Del Mar College.
