Leader of veteran advocacy group: Don't blame Obama for Track Palin's behavior

“It’s not President Obama’s fault that Sarah Palin’s son has PTSD,” said Paul Rieckhoff, who heads Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). “PTSD is a very serious problem, a complicated mental health injury and I would be extremely reluctant to blame any one person in particular.”…

“This is a great opportunity for Sarah Palin to sound the alarm about PTSD,” he said. “Now that she has endorsed Mr. Trump, I would encourage her to talk with him about it. Mr. Trump’s campaign is pretty light on specifics about what he would do for veterans.”

Rieckhoff urged Palin to “resist the urge to politicize” PTSD.

“I hope this doesn’t become a portable chew toy in a political campaign,” he said.
