President Obama -- the first president to host a question and answer session on the social news website, Reddit -- told questioners Wednesday night that the administration will soon make public the recipe for White House beer. A Reddit user had filed a Freedom of Information request for the details.
"It will be out soon!" Obama told the participants. "I can tell from first hand experience, it is tasty."
He did answer more serious questions, including telling participants that his "most difficult" decision was the one to send more troops into Afghanistan.
"Any time you send our brave men and women into battle, you know that not everyone will come home safely, and that necessarily weighs heavily on you," he wrote. "The decision did help us blunt the taliban's momentum, and is allowing us to transition to afghan lead - so we will have recovered that surge at the end of this month, and will end the war at the end of 2014. But knowing of the heroes that have fallen is something you never forget."
He didn't answer a host of questions (including whether he likes cats,) but signaled he enjoyed the banter: "By the way, if you want to know what I think about this whole Reddit experience — NOT BAD!" he wrote.
