Posted on 09/11/2012 12:57:57 PM PDT by ColdOne
The White House is denying that they refused to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of a U.N. conference later this month.
"The President arrives in New York for the U.N. on Monday, September 24th and departs on Tuesday, September 25th," National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said.
"The Prime Minister doesn't arrive in New York until later in the week. They're simply not in the city at the same time. But the President and PM are in frequent contact and the PM will meet with other senior officials, including Secretary Clinton, during his visit," Vietor said.

Good Lord. They are not even in the city at the same time. Why all the drama?
Too late! The Israelis have already spilled the beans on Obama’s snub.
What else could they say?
“Yeah, sure, we snubbed him. What’s the big deal?”
Does the Israeli report on the WHLFCOLB.pdf forgery have anything to do with this snubbing?
I don’t think there are two people in America who are naive enough to actually believe the White House spin on this disgraceful backstabbing of Israel by the regime of Barack Hussein Obama.
Meanwhile the US has cut its military coordination with Israel and is supplying U-boats to Egypt, and is refusing to take any action against Iran which poses an existential threat to the continued existence of Israel.
There was a report last week (from a source I could not verify) that asserted that the combined intelligence services of the US analyzed geopolitics and concluded that the US’s interests would be served if Israel were destroyed. Certainly, President Obama is acting as though he believes this.
So according to Israel obama subbed the prime minster, they lied.
Makes no sense since he had the democrat plank changed unless after the fact polls showed voters could care less about Israel and Jerusalem etc
"I didn't snub him....you snubbed him."
You have not met my sister and brother-in-law.
Don’t meet with him regardless, Bibi.
The Marxist is not be to trusted.
Zer0 would not meet with the jobs council either, too busy selling U Boats to Egypt, where they are desecrating our flag.
President Obama acts like a petulant child.
I am sure that he did not order the platform changed, despite Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s claims. Rather, some political guide — Axelrod? Plouffe? — urged that the change be made.
Shortly before, and even the day after, the change in the platform, the President’s press secretary was unwilling to go on record with the identity of the city that President Obama believes is Israel’s capital. A few days later they did say that he believes that it is Jerusalem but it has to be negotiated between the parties. What does that mean?
Obama is doing his best to render Israel defenseless while helping to radicalize the Middle East under the Muslim Brotherhood and in particular taking no action to hinder Iran’s crusade to develop a nuclear bomb with the expressly stated intention of using it against Israel.
In other words, the plank is “words, just words” to our child President, and he is going to go about his business of destroying Israel’s geopolitical security as aggressively as he can.
Raising money, campaigning, and playing golf are the only things Obama has time for.
well THAT was quick,,wow. Somebody is feeling some heat up there in D.C.
"The Secret Service doesn't allow Obama to drive, for security reasons, so he really doesn't have any way to get all the way up to NYC to meet people on such a short notice".
“The President arrives in New York for the U.N. on Monday, September 24th and departs on Tuesday, September 25th,” National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said.
Typical Demonic Party response and ploy: Bibi reported stated that he would travel to the capital to meet with the jug-eared moron, so the skid mark’s spokescum attempts to deflect the accusation by stating the empty chair won’t be in NYC.
Because Bibi flew 5880 miles into NYC. And Obama is 213 miles away in DC.
1) Obama has flown that before in AF1 for a “date night” and just to buzz Manhattan.
2) If Obama asked, Bibi would certainly make a stop in DC.
3) Bibi REQUESTED to meet with him.
And these are national leaders, in the flashpoint of the Iranian bomb and collapse of Egypt topics, yet, Obama has not the slightest desire to even speak to him.
Last time Bibi was here, IN the White house, Obama left him sitting there to go have dinner with his family. Is there the sightest chance that Obama thinks, “hmm, that was kind of a huge snub,,,i’d better reach out to that ally?”.
There’s no reason to carry Obama’s water here. He is in the wrong. No excuses.
Im not a national leader. I have friends 6000 miles away. If they came here to within 200 miles of me, and ASKED to see me, and i refused without explanation,,,. It’s like that.
