Admiral Hutson: "This isn't easy... But it also makes us safer."
Rear Admiral John D. Hutson, pictured just behind President Obama's chair above, was quoted in the New York Times on today's executive orders:
“He really gets it,” Mr. Hutson said of Mr. Obama in an interview a few minutes after the ceremony. “He acknowledged that this isn’t easy. But he is absolutely dedicated to getting us back on track as a nation. This is the right thing to do morally, diplomatically, militarily and Constitutionally. But it also makes us safer.”
