Steyn on American Captive in Pakistan 'Abandoned and Forgotten': 'There’s a Heartlessness about Obama' Filling in for conservative talker Rush Limbaugh on Thursday, columnist Mark Steyn reacted to a video released by As-Sahab of government contractor Warren Weinstein pleading for the Obama administration to negotiate for his release. "This guy says he feels, quote, 'Totally abandoned and forgotten,'" Steyn said. "That's because he is totally abandoned and forgotten. There's a heartlessness about Obama that was reflected on the night of Benghazi when he took off and went to his big campaign event in Vegas and by all accounts this is why they're being so vague about letting us have the actual record of what happened that night. He wasn't even sufficiently interested in what 'his good friend Chris,' Ambassador Stevens, as he is more formally know, but his good friend Chris, Chris this, Chris that, as he said over the guy's body, when they returned him, what was left of him back at Andrews Air Force Base, he wasn't that interested in the fate of Chris, nor was Secretary [of State Hillary] Clinton to inquire about him."
