There would be no point in denying it, even if he didn't say those things. It would most likely make him look bad even if he tried to deny. Besides,
those hard-core military old guys aren't the type to make excuses, rather just roll with the punches.
Also, I'm not saying that the general didn't make those comments, only that it seems suspicious that his aids would have said that to the reporters.
What if his phones were tapped or someone overheard what he was saying, either through ear-shot or internal memos and emails. Look, I'm not even
saying that his aids didn't do it, only that it would seem unlikely. Three possibilities here, one being that he did say it and his aids ratted him
out to reporters; he did say it and someone overheard it, thus allowing Obama's political enemies to make Obama look bad or the last possibility
being that he didn't say it and neither did his aids, rather it was all an attempt to hurt Obama.
Whatever the case, Obama sure got mud on his face because of it.
