The unreality of the event was captured in the citation accompanying the Pentagon medal he was awarded. It affirmed virtually every White House-promoted falsehood about Mr. Obama's performance as Commander-in-Chief.
For example, it claims: He "kept our nation safe." He "decimated al Qaeda's terrorist network." He "put [ISIS] on a path to a lasting defeat." He "achieved verifiable nuclear disarmament of Iran." And on and on.
