Obama Declines Invitation to Attend Memorial Dedication for Disabled Veterans

September 22, 2014

For some unexplained reason, the president has declined an invitation to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars.  According to the Washington Free Beacon, the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM) is the first memorial of its kind, and is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C. The memorial’s organizers say “the memorial will serve as a constant reminder of the cost of human conflict.”  The Free Beacon reports “according to a source close to the situation” Obama declined the invitation, making him the first president in recent history not to formally accept a new national memorial. Organizers of the event were caught off guard when informed by the White House of the president’s decision this week and are hoping to receive an explanation from the White House as to why Obama will not be attending the ceremony, according to the source, who is involved with the memorial and was informed of the decision this week.

    Another misleading and completely bogus story. The White House did not DECLINE the invitation. For security reasons, it simply didn’t confirm TWO WEEKS IN ADVANCE that the president would attend. For major trips, or speeches such as to the upcoming UN General Assembly, the WH and the Secret Service post the president’s schedule. But for a local event like this (within the DC area), his plans are not publicized in advance. This is SOP for any president and for any WH and Secret Service detail. The Washington Free Beacon is a bogus “news” organization not worthy even to report the weather.

    No problem – this is a place that celebrates the honor and sacrifice of Americans. His presence would only bring shame and disgust.
