French President Francois Hollande with meet with President Obama at the White House next Tuesday, November 24, the White House announced this morning.
From the White House:
This visit will underscore the friendship and solidarity between the United States and France, our oldest ally. President Obama and President Hollande will consult and coordinate our efforts to assist France’s investigation into these attacks, discuss further cooperation as part of the 65-member counter-ISIL coalition, and reiterate our shared determination to confront the scourge of terrorism.
Maybe Obama will be able to generate some emotion this time about what happened in Paris and provide more leadership than some comments about sharing intelligence, or whatever.
Think about how the Europeans were there for us after 9/11. All Obama could do during his press conference Monday was get peevish about how everyone is questioning his grand strategy to combat ISIS, which is clearly not working.
