As his top national security advisors gathered for an urgent Saturday meeting to discuss the terrorist threat that has forced the United States to close embassies overseas, President Obama was at Camp David celebrating his birthday with friends.
Sixteen senior officials participated in the unusual gathering, according to the White House. Among them were National Security Advisor Susan Rice, who chaired the session, Secretary of State John Kerry, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, and Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Lisa Monaco, and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano.
Obama was briefed after the session by Rice and Monaco, according to the White House. The White House said Obama has received frequent briefings over the last week on the threat.
Obama, whose birthday is today, was already celebrating at least a day early, playing golf in the morning with 11 longtime buddies and then traveling with them to Camp David, where the party continued. The president is scheduled to return to the White House today.
The White House didnt say where the meeting took place, though such a session would presumably be held at the White House in the Situation Room. The White House labeled the gathering a principals meeting, which may be an attempt to excuse the presidents absence by suggesting that only the top officials of various agencies were meant to be present. But its unclear why Obama wouldnt have wanted to directly participate in such a vital discussion.
And, this is a surprise to whom . . . . . . ??
The man obviously knows his own strengths, and coping with grownup problems isn’t one of them.
I betcha AQ had planned to have a big birthday bash for their friend, obama, but the “chatter” was misinterpreted.
With Hanoi Boi Kerry; the YouTube video expert, Susie Rice; Sergeant Chuckie Hagel and Butchie Napolitano on the case, what could go wrong?
Besides avoiding his JOB, why is he avoiding his “family” once gain? What kind of a message does it send to his two kids that dad would rather party and play golf then spend time with them and Michelle? He just might be a worse father than his own.
What in hell does Susan Rice know about anything? These are the clowns tasked with “protecting” the US. What a load of BS.
I guess Barry wants a part time job also.
A man was driving behind a drunk driver, who was swerving all over the road. The car straightened up while the drunk driver was lighting his cigarette.
Obama playing golf may be a good thing for the security of the nation.
Sources confirm that the topic of the high-level security meeting was deciding which YouTube video to blame for this increased terrorist activity...
how do they get the coke and weed past the dogs?
Hubby took our 3 girls on a day hike at the state park near Camp David today — we completely forgot that Obuttwipe and his merry band o’ men were “in town.” The trail they wanted to do was closed for security, so they amended their original plan and still had a great day. As my 9 yr old informed me “there were all these big black vans around with guys in tuxedos giving us mean looks.” I told her that I hope she gave them mean looks right back! (yeah, I know, I’m a bad mom).
That’s because the whole thing is a fake threat, a diversion from phony scandals.
Reggie is his daddy.
I will be funny when the truth about Obama being on the down low comes out. The brothas are not too fond of our gay friends. You think they are hard on crackers....the man would not get a black male vote to save his life.
Bingo! However, he is great at partying, playing golf and jetting all over the world.
