Woman of Chutzpah Update


As I mention below, Michelle Obama and John Kerry’s presentation to Samira Ibrahim of the U.S. government’s “Woman of Courage” Award (scheduled for tomorrow) has been put on hold pending belated State Department investigation of various tweets damning Jews, favoring Hitler, and expressing the desire to see America burn.

Miss Ibrahim says her Twitter account was hacked. This seems technically improbable.

Is the government that investigated Miss Ibrahim and decided she was a fit person to meet the first lady and get a gong from the secretary of state the same government that investigates you and decides whether you need to be vaporized by a drone? Or is that an entirely different level of checks and balances?
