Obama returned to the White House at 11:34 am ET from the Fort McNair Physical Fitness Center, where he played basketball, apparently indoors.
IRONICALLY, just yesterday, McNair was the setting for the retirement ceremony of former Afghan war Commander Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who lives there too. McChrystal, of course, “retired” after dissing the administration just a little too much.
Here are some comments from the “pool” reporter who accompanied Obama in the motorcade today to Fort McNair.
The facility is near Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s home, which your pooler saw on a drive around the base to find some shade. The parade field at McNair did not show any trace of last night’s retirement ceremony for McChrystal.
