Facing Up To Their Responsibilities
From today's news -
The director of the White House Military Office has resigned, an administration official said Friday, two weeks after he authorized an Air Force One backup to fly over the Statue of Liberty that terrified thousands of people in New York City. The director, Louis Caldera, who served as the secretary of the Army in the Clinton administration, had apologized for approving the flyover. He submitted his resignation on Friday, after the president ordered an internal White House review.
For those of you who are keeping track -
Number of government officials taking responsibility for mistakes which allowed a flyover that reminded people of the 9/11 attacks: 1.
Number of government officials taking responsibility for mistakes which allowed the 9/11 attacks: 0.
Concluding that this is a different kind of Presidency doesn't even begin to explain this.
