Obama failed to send anyone of consequence to Paris for the Charlie Hebdo rally.
Now he is doing the same for the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
From the New York Times:
For Auschwitz Museum, a Time of Great Change
For what is likely to be the last time, a large number of the survivors of the Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz will gather next week under an expansive tent, surrounded by royalty and heads of state, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the liberation of those held there at the end of World War II.
“This will be the last decade anniversary with a very visible presence of survivors,” said Andrzej Kacorzyk, deputy director of the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, which encompasses the sites of the original concentration camp, near the center of Oswiecim, and the larger Auschwitz II-Birkenau on the city’s outskirts.
And who will be attending:
A preliminary list of those attending includes President François Hollande of France, President Joachim Gauck of Germany and President Heinz Fischer of Austria, as well as King Philippe of Belgium, King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands and Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark. The United States delegation will be led by Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew.
Treasury Secretary? Not the President or Vice President. Not even Kerry?
Christ - Send Hillery - at this point, what difference does it make.
