the aarp interview

Interview with AARP – extracts:

……. Q: The attacks set off the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Did either of you have an inkling that the mission that killed him was in the works?

MO: I knew something was happening, but when it gets down to that level of secrecy, there’s just a small number of people who know anything.

Q: So when did you find out?

MO: I was actually out to dinner with girlfriends, and I didn’t know until I walked in the door. It was later in the evening, and Barack had his suit on, because he was going to the press conference. And I said, “What’s going on?”

Q: And your reaction?

MO: I was, like, “Wow.” Then I wanted to know the details: “How did it happen? Then what? And then what happened?” I was probably like every media person.

Q: Was he too hurried to explain?

MO: No, he sat down. And then I sat down and talked to Malia to make sure she was aware, because the crowds [outside the White House] were starting to form…….

    I enjoyed the interview as well. It was very good. They answered the question with answers that didn’t seem rehearsed but just heart felt and meaningful. Even though I was reading and not watching, they seemed like they (FLMO&DR.B) enjoyed each others company and are good friends. It was also very entertaining. FLOTUS said “N-O. Period. Dot” she will not be running for any political office and Dr. Biden agreed. There goes my wish for Obama/Biden2016. LOL! It’s a must read.
