“When I went through the process of becoming press secretary, one of the things, one of the first things they told me was, ‘You’re not even to acknowledge the drone program. You’re not even to discuss that it exists.’ […]
Here’s what’s inherently crazy about that proposition: You’re being asked a question based on reporting of a program that exists. So you’re the official government spokesperson acting as if the entire program — pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.”
Former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, explaining that he was told to ignore the existence of Obama’s drone program.
Is it just me, or is it kinda crazy that he actually said this? It’s hard to imagine this was cleared by the White House.
