In light of the possibility that the Obama Department of Defense, or the Obama Department of Justice may have decided to charge Lt. Commander Timothy White with a criminal offense for using his personal firearm to try to stop Muhammad Abdulazeez during his July 2015 murderous attack on a recruiting station, I would issue a full and complete pardon to White, and direct the Secretary of the Department of Defense, the Secretary of the Navy, and the Chief of Naval Operations to jointly sign and place in the Lt. Commander's official service record a Commendation for Bravery under Fire, and I would invite Lt. Commander White to serve as a special attache to the White House for the duration of my presidency, or of his interest therein.
