Why does this have to be attributed to an "anonymous source?" It's so bland that I would expect to see it issued in a press release.
"The president wants to see that they are brought to swift and certain
justice,'' an administration official said Friday, speaking anonymously
about the five defendants, adding that Obama's advisers have yet to
begin calling local community leaders to seek their support.
Would the president's office say anything other than he was them "brought to swift and certain justice?" Me thinks that this anonymous sourcing has gotten out of hand.
