Andrea Mitchell on Obama: You Don't Use The Word 'Crusades' in Any Context Right Now

On the Meet the Press panel, Andrea Mitchell surprisingly disagrees with Obama's remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast


ANDREA MITCHELL: You don't use the word crusades number one in any context right now. It just it's too fraught. And the week after a pilot is burned alive, in a video shown, you don't lean over backwards to be philosophical about the sins of the fathers. You have to deal with the issue that's in front of you or don't deal with it at all.
