Obama's cry for help, as he 'Slips Up' again? > "We're Training ISIL"
The Obama White House seems happy to continue amending history instead of
providing an accurate record of what the president actually said.
During his speech, Obama uttered the line, “with the additional steps I ordered last month, we’re speeding up training of ISIL forces.”
TheWhite House.gov transcriptleft in the original quote, but placed the word ‘Iraqi’ in brackets after the word ISIL, correcting Obama’s mistake.
This is by no means the first time that the White House has edited transcripts of Obama’s speeches to put the president in a better light or cover up for his mistakes.
Last October, the White Housecompletely scrubbed a referenceObama made to unpaid pills being stacked up at his home in Chicago, replacing it with the quote, “there’s still junk on my desk, including some — newspapers and all kinds of stuff.”
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest later dubiously claimed that the line about Obama’s bills was left out because the recording equipment malfunctioned.
The White Houseagain edited Obama’s remarksin March when he mistakenly stated, “the bond between the United States and America is unbreakable.”
When the Bush administration caught flak for amending transcripts, they immediately switched to providing the president’s remarks verbatim, which was not an easy decision considering George W. Bush’s notorious“Bushisms”.
However, the Obama White House seems happy to continue amending history instead of providing an accurate record of what the president actually said.
