Check out this news story from AFP:
The White House on Wednesday shrugged off Polish demands to express more than mere 'regret' after President Barack Obama mistakenly referred to a Nazi Holocaust site as a "Polish death camp."
"We regret the misstatement, but that is what it was," said Obama spokesman Jay Carney, reiterating that the president "misspoke" during a ceremony awarding the highest US civilian honor to late Holocaust hero Jan Karski.
"He was referring to Nazi death camps in German-occupied Poland."
Hey, Jay, how can you "misspeak" when you're reading prepared remarks off a Teleprompter? The plain fact is that no one with an IQ above room temperature vetted the speech before Obama read it. Tell me again why I'm supposed to respect the office of the president—especially when it's quite clear that this man has zero respect for anyone except the man in the mirror. So yes, this statement of regret is also an embarrassment.
The double irony here, of course, is that Jan Karski never got any respect, nor was he listened to when it could have mattered. FDR, Churchill, and Felix Frankfurter, to name only the most prominent, did not believe (or care) what he had to say about the death camps.
