In case you were wondering why President Obama didn’t stop Troy Davis’ execution, he DID at least attempt to step in.

Two sources told Redding News Review, Obama’s White House spent “three days” looking at ways they could legally get involved in the case on a federal level.

“‘We looked at every possible avenue legally,’” the source reported Obama said. “‘There was not one there.’”

“‘It was a state case and I could not intervene because it wasn’t federal,’” another source reported Obama said.
