From the Associated Press, last Friday:
At the White House, spokesman Jay Carney refused to even acknowledge the governmentâ€™s direct role in killing al-Awlaki. He repeatedly ducked questions about the extent of Obamaâ€™s authority and said only that al-Awlaki had been an operational leader for al-Qaida.
â€œIs there going to be any evidence presented?â€ Carney was asked.
â€œYou know, I don’t have anything for you on that,â€ he responded.
CouldÂ there beÂ a more perfect illustration of the age in which we live?
