Here is a 7 minute video that clearly shows Obama speaking at the Pentagon while the 9-11 moment of silence was being observed in New York City.
Look at the way he reads his script — emotionless.
During today’s commemoration of the innocent Americans killed at the Pentagon twelve years ago today at the hands of Islamist terrorists, Barack Obama broke tradition and the media reported schedule of events by failing to observe a moment of silence for the dead, choosing instead to go straight into his fairly short speech, as reported by Fox News via YouTube.com and the Reuters news agency on Sept. 11, 2013.
Prior to Obama’s arrival at the Pentagon, Reuters verified that the typical mainstream media reporting that the traditional moment of silence would be observed. Further moments of silence will be observed at 9:37 a.m., when American Airlines Flight 77 hit the Pentagon.
However, the video clip of the Fox News live report clearly cites on the rotating time stamp on the bottom, left of the screen (see video) that the Chief Executive began his rather short seven minute address to the handful in attendance at the same time the traditional and respectful moment of silence was scheduled to have been reserved.
