Now the White House admits that they should have sent a higher profile official.
Ya think? 50 world leaders attended- I got that number wrong too. British Prime Minister David Cameron was there. So was Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel. Israel's P.M. Benjamin Netanyahu was there. Ireland, Austria, Spain, Russia, the Ukraine, Denmark, Poland, Portugal, Czech Republic, Sweden, Finland. The list here.
“I think it’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters on Monday.
And it was closer to 4 million strong that showed up to demonstrate to the terrorists of the world that we will not be cowed into submission.
They cited security reasons, but if Angela Merkel could show up, so could Kerry, or even Holder.
Earnest went on to say:
“I’m not suggesting that anybody bears responsibility for this outside the White House,” he said. “We here at the White House should have made a different decision.”
