After weeks of internal debate, White House officials adopted the communications documents to shape public events and official statements, and they sought to strike a delicate balance between messages designed for these two very important but very different audiences on a day when the world’s attention will be focused on President Obama, his leadership team and his nation.Wait, what? The world will be focused on Obama? Really? His leadership team? Huh? What leadership? His nation? What, does he own the United States or something?
Copies of the internal documents were provided to The New York Times by officials in several agencies involved in planning the anniversary commemorations. “The important theme is to show the world how much we realize that 9/11 — the attacks themselves and violent extremism writ large — is not ‘just about us,’ ” said one official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe internal White House planning.It's not about us, it's just about Obama, his leadership team and his nation.
Remember, it's now his nation. Not our nation.
Expects some revisions to this drivel once the excrement hits the fan today.
