While CBS News president David Rhodes (right) attended the memorial service for Mike Wallace Tuesday, seated next to presidential candidate Mitt Romney, his brother, Ben Rhodes was on his way to Afghanistan, seated next to — or at least near — Pres. Obama. Ben Rhodes is a deputy national security adviser in the administration and was on the trip to Bagram Air Field yesterday.
A year ago Tuesday, David Rhodes was at CBS News headquarters heading up the coverage of the death of Osama Bin Laden, while his younger brother was at the White House supporting the administration’s part in the raid that took out Bin Laden.
