Issues - Islamic Extremism - Obama Snubs Paris Rally

[1/12/15] America snubs historic Paris rally: Holder skipped out early, Kerry in India, Obama and Biden just stayed home

(Daily Mail) -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and British PM David Cameron were among dozens of world leaders there.

Neither President Obama or Vice President Joe Biden attended the historic event, though both of their public schedules were open.

Obama told the French on Friday that 'the United States stands with you today, stands with you tomorrow' – but he didn't stand with them in Paris.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder was in Paris for a terrorism summit, but was not seen at the march which followed.

No cabinet secretaries or other senior officials attended, leaving only US Ambassador to France Jane Hartley as the top US official there.
