    At first Jay Carney issued an official statement on the General’s passing.
    Then, somewhat later, either someone made it clear, or someone realized that it should be THE PRESIDENT who makes the official statement from the White House regarding this great man’s passing.
    So they changed who made that statement.
    They put Obama’s name on it.
