Plenty of people have expressed outrage at the growing VA scandal, which ultimately cost Eric Shinseki his job. But not many had the guts to openly call out Barack Obama, as Navy veteran Montel Williams did in a brilliant Fox News appearance.
“I’m angry because, you know, we made a promise. When I stood with my hand up proudly, I said, ‘I do solemnly swear and affirm to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic and I will bear true faith –.’ I went through my oath,” Williams told host Neil Cavuto.
Williams ripped the president’s recent appearance at the graduation of cadets at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Instead of using the appearance to promote a new $5 billion anti-terrorism initiative, Williams thinks the president should have remembered the vets that had come before the cadets.
“The president just promised $5 billion for terrorists around the world?!…At West Point? Where he could have used today to say, ‘I’m sorry! For the pain that I’ve caused you, the families! And I’m going to fix it today!’” Williams said.
… According to Williams, less than 20 percent of Congress have served in the military.
“They are easy and quick to send someone else’s child off to die. They should be just as quick to protect them when they come home.”
Obama has used this scandal as another talking point to use on his campaign trails, another way to pass blame without ever taking responsibility himself for what happened, which is just business as usual again. His West Point address was just the lowest point in a series of recent lows.
