That's why I put brackets around those words. I was trying to show that

was my inference of what was reported. That is not what they wrote verbatim, but I though the implication was pretty clear, at least to me.
Here is the article from Fox News, via The Daily Caller, which is Tucker Carlson's website. It was concerning enough to Fox that they used it as a headline on their website. Breitbart is quoted on a website called Syracuse.com
-- B4E
"The salute was also bashed in the media. Breitbart said Obama's salute was "sloppy and careless," while Fox News' Sean Hannity asked Karl Rove, "Would President Bush ever do that?"
President Barack Obama returned a formal military salute with a one-handed coffee-cup salute Tuesday, only a few hours after he dispatched the nation’s military on their attack mission into northern Syria.

White House aides posted the sloppy salute video on Instagram.

The commander in chief offered the coffee-cup salute when he disembarked from his U.S. Marine Corps helicopter in New York, as he made his way to the United Nations General Assembly.

“President Obama just landed in New York for #UNGA2014,” says the caption.

The salute is “the most important of all military courtesies,” says a manual for Marine Corps officer candidates.

“In some situations, the salute is not appropriate,” says the manual. “In general, do not salute when… carrying articles with both hands or being otherwise so occupied as to make saluting impractical,” says the manual, titled “Customs and Courtesies.”

Some of the comments on the Instagram account were very critical of Obama’s unconventional salutation.

“Put the damn coffee down and salute correctly,” said part of a message from “gatorman1361.
