Awful… President Obama Makes Horrible Mistake Dishonoring Medal of Honor Recipients (Video)

This was absolutely awful.

Barack Obama made another horrible mistake today.
The president visited the 10th Mountain Division today and congratulated them on their service. Then he told the soldiers that he had given the Medal of Honor to Jared Monti who came back from Iraq alive.
Jared Monti was actually killed in Iraq in 2006.
How sad.

“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.

Blackfive caught the president’s horrible gaffe.

As we all know, SSG Sal Giunta, of the 173rd Airborne, was the first living recipient (2011) of the MOH who fought in Iraq/Afganistan. SFC Jared Monti, 10th Mountain Division, was KIA in Afghanistan in 2006. He was posthumously awarded the MOH by Obama in 2009.

How does the Commander-in-Chief mix these heroes up? He put that medal around Giunta’s neck and he stood with Monti’s parents as they grieved.

Here’s the video.

This ranks up there as one of his worst gaffes ever.
How awful.

    Barry will be forgiven yet again by the MFM because they want (and get) political Kabuki Theatre. Being a smarmym lying creep is something good in their world view.

    This fool has no idea what a CMH means, other than as a political device.

    Like everything else in his life, just a tool to serve his agenda.

    And here I thought our Foot-In-Mouth President would be hard pressed to top his “corpseman” gaffe, but I get proven wrong.

  • Sickofobama

    I actually think all these gaffes are designed to piss us off so we react with violence.

    Obama has about as much empathy for other people as a rock does.

    He is empty inside.

    This is the genius who leads our country. He’s not worthy to be in the same room as those he commands.

    “You guys”. Really respectful. What a moron and a disgrace to the office of POTUS.

  • RS

    I am sure these brave men and women respect the office of the President, even if the current president is not worthy of shining their shoes.

    SFC Monti was killed in Afghanistan, not Iraq.

    Effing Idiot! Barry is clueless about anything to do with the Military. Worst CinC ever!!

    Every school in America should teach about the MOH recipients. They all are fine men worthy of adulation and praise. May God bless them all.
