BONUS - The White House was so determined that the moment be quick and uncomfortable that there were apparently no napkins offered. Watch the President of the United States wipe his left hand on his pants after having a few nuts, perhaps - the only food that seems to have been offered. In a subsequent press conference, Sgt. Crowley showed himself to be confident and gracious - putting to rest any attempts that might have been planned to further portray him in a negative light.
Most poignant of all is a letter written by Sgt. Leon Lashley, on the scene with Sgt. Crowley at the Gates residence two weeks ago, which he gave to Crowley to give to the President.
Lashley complains of having been labeled an Uncle Tom for expressing his support for Crowley, and asks Professor Gates to do some soul searching over his behavior and the negative impact it has had on the people involved.
