Politico: “Brian Williams of NBC News held a rare interview with President Barack Obama about the killing of Osama bin Laden in the White House Situation Room yesterday. The interview, which will air on Rock Center with Brian Williams on May 2, comes at the one-year anniversary of bin Laden’s killing, an event the Obama campaign is touting in a new ad that goes after Mitt Romney.”
Later: “White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest resisted questions regarding rumors of the interview this morning, as well as the suggestion that Obama was politicizing Bin Laden’s killing by holding an interview in the Situation Room.”
The Situation Room has always been noted as the most secure part of the White House, cameras prohibited. Other than Bush permitting news media to view the remodeled room in 2006, when all cell phones… where left at the door, I do not recall another administration besides the current to allow visits let alone all of the equipment.
Unions, illegals, women, cars, energy, homes, employment, education, health care, retirement, military, business, food… have all been used for political gain. Add the Situation Room, the heart of America’s national security.
