Major Garrett Responds to Obama Scolding: I Intended to Be ‘Provocative’by Evan McMurry | 3:01 pm, July 15th, 2015 1278
“That’s nonsense. You should know better,” Obama said of Garrett’s characterization of his “contentment.” “Nobody’s ‘content,’ and our diplomats and our teams are working diligently to try to get them out.”
“Sometimes you have to take a scolding from a president to get to an answer,” Garrett said. “That’s part of my job.”
“Politics, especially those elected as president, are very adept at creating straw men…that’s exactly what the president did,” Garrett said. “Clearly it struck an serve. That was my intention…Was it provocative? Yes. Was it intended to be as such? Absolutely.”
Garrett said he didn’t mean to imply that Obama was “content” leaving Americans hostage, but argued the administration has used the phrasing multiple times with families of the hostages, suggesting they would never be “content” with the situation — making it odd that the hostages were not part of the negotiations.
