We can put a person on the moon, but we cannot figure out a way to revoke a medal.
In a July press conference, President Obama said he could not revoke the medal, which President George W. Bush awarded to Cosby in 2002. “There is no precedent for revoking the medal,” Obama said. “We don’t have the mechanism.”
But… Yes We Can. I just know we can.
For instance, here’s one possible mechanism which UD arrived at after hours of deep thought.
Send a letter from the President to Bill Cosby asking him to return the medal.
