What was Obama doing during the funeral of Major General Harold Greene? His favorite activity of course. Check it out…
Back on August 5th, Major General Harold Greene was killed in Afghanistan, the victim of an insider attack. He was the first general killed in a combat zone since the Vietnam War.
Such a rare occurrence as a high-ranking officer’s death should have warranted a great deal of attention from our Commander-in-Chief, but Obama has yet to make any public comments regarding his death.
Not only has Obama been unable to make any comment about the General’s sacrifice, he also was unable to find the time to make it to General Greene’s funeral, held on Thursday in Arlington National Cemetery. Obama himself was conspicuously absent, but so were the Vice President and the Secretary of Defense. The highest ranking and most senior member of Obama’s administration that found the time to pay respects to the General that was murdered by the enemy was Army Chief of Staff Ray Odierno, according to BizPacReview.
The activity that Obama thought more pressing than this hero’s funeral? Golfing.

To those who asked: Yes, Obama was, in fact, on course at Vineyard Golf Club during Gen. Greene's funeral.
