CNN: Obama Declining 'Special Attention' to Slain General Because of Other Dead Soldiers

Immediately before President Barack Obama’s news conference at the U.S. State Department on Wednesday during “The Situation Room,” CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta previewed the conference and what he would be covering.

Among the things Acosta said Obama would be discussing was the assassination of Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene, the first U.S. Army general to be assassinated in 141 years in a combat zone.

“The president has not yet talked about Major Gen. Harold Greene, who was killed in Afghanistan yesterday,” Acosta said. “We haven’t heard the president talk about that. Officials have been saying inside the administration that part of the reason for that is because the president doesn’t want to give special attention to a general when so many soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan.”
