“You let the world down.”
That headline appeared in Sunday’s New York Daily News along with pictures of President Obama, Vice President Biden, Secretary of State Kerry, and Attorney General Holder. While 40 heads of state including Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu, and even Palestinian Authority President Abbas showed up at the march to denounce the Islamic terrorism, our leaders were nowhere to be found.
Both President Obama and Vice President Biden had empty public schedules on Sunday, and declined to comment on why they didn’t go.
Eric Holder, who was in Paris, chose instead to tape an interview for “Meet the Press.”
It’s time for our leaders to join the rest of the world in denouncing Islamic terrorism publicly.
