  • A small clip of what was said for those who don't like to click. Listening to her tell it is much better though.

    Burlingame said she confronted Obama about Attorney General Eric Holder prosecuting the men, who likely produced intelligence leading us to bin Laden.

    Burlingame describes the encounter with Obama: "As a former attorney I know you can't tell the Attorney General what to do, he said, 'No, I can't.' But I said 'we -- that shouldn't stop you from giving your opinion. We wouldn't be here today if they hadn't done their jobs. Can't you at least give them your opinion.' And he said 'no I won't,' and he turned around and walked away

  • He isn't going to discuss that stuff. He just isn't. It is too controversial. Oddly enough!

  • She is the sister of Chic Burlingame who was the pilot of the plane that went into the pentagon on 9-11

  • I know exactly who she is and she do NOT speak for ALL of the 9/11 "survivors" although she seems to think she does since she's a lawyer.

    I don't like Obama, but bravo on him doing exactly as he should - saying he can't intervene as he cannot.

  • So...she thinks she can tell him what to do? I think not. WHo does she think she is? If she admits that he can't tell the Attorney General what to do, why did she push the issue? I don't think it was "low" for him to refuse. Gawwwwwwwd. It doesn't take much for you to attack the President,does it? TAke a Midol. HAve a drink. DO something positive like taking a walk in the fresh night air----anything to get out of your bad mood .
