Answer Man: Nobody should salute this bogus email

Q. I recently received an email claiming that before he was elected president, President Obama appeared on “Meet the Press” on Sept. 7, 2008, and was asked by retired Air Force Gen. Bill Gann why Obama did not put his hand over his heart for the national anthem. Among other things, Obama reportedly replied, “As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides.” Is this true?
