The White House had to correct the location on its release of President Barack Obama’s remarks Friday in Jerusalem.
The White House forgot its own policy on Jerusalem Friday — at least temporarily.
The administration initially sent out a copy of President Barack Obama’s remarks at former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres’ funeral in Jerusalem, indicating that the remarks had been given in Jerusalem, Israel. But later Friday afternoon, the press office sent out a correction to the previous email, striking out “Israel” from the header of the transcript.
Obama delivered the eulogy at Israeli national cemetery Mount Herzl.
