Report: Obama Didn’t Want to Take Photos With the US Troops in Iraq …Update: Obama Tells Troops “You Guys Make a Pretty Good Photo Op”

Classless.

(Voice NZ)

Another revolting disclosure…
A new book by Michael Hastings, The Operators, reveals that Barack Obama did not want to take photos with the US troops in Iraq.
Buzz Feed reported:

After the talk, out of earshot from the soldiers and diplomats, he starts to complain. He starts to act very un-Obamalike, according to a U.S. embassy official
who helped organize the trip in Baghdad.

He’s asked to go out to take a few more pictures with soldiers and embassy staffers. He’s asked to sign copies of his book. “He didn’t want to take pictures with any more soldiers; he was complaining about it,” a State Department official tells me.

“Look, I was excited to meet him. I wanted to like him. Let’s just say the scales fell from my eyes after I did. These are people over here who’ve been fighting the war, or working every day for the war effort, and he didn’t want to take fu*king pictures with them?”
