Unconscionable… President Obama Makes Horrible Mistake Dishonoring Medal of Honor Winners (Video)

GatewayPundit:

This was absolutely awful.

Barack Obama made another horrible mistake today.

The president visited the 10th Mountain Division today and congratulated them on their service. Then he told the soldiers that he had given the Medal of Honor to Jared Monti who came back from Iraq alive.

Jared Monti was actually killed in Iraq in 2006.

How sad.

“First time I saw 10th Mountain Division, you guys were in southern Iraq. When I went back to visit Afghanistan, you guys were the first ones there. I had the great honor of seeing some of you because a comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously.

Blackfive caught the president’s horrible gaffe.

As we all know, SSG Sal Giunta, of the 173rd Airborne, was the first living recipient (2011) of the MOH who fought in Iraq/Afganistan. SFC Jared Monti, 10th Mountain Division, was KIA in Afghanistan in 2006. He was posthumously awarded the MOH by Obama in 2009.

How does the Commander-in-Chief mix these heroes up? He put that medal around Giunta’s neck and he stood with Monti’s parents as they grieved.

Here’s the video.



This ranks up there as one of his worst gaffes ever.
How awful.
