"Obama Did Not Attend The Meeting", Or In A Moment Of Crisis The President Stands Resolute In The Sand Trap -

March 1, 2014, the day Russia announced it would send armed forces in Crimea: President Barack Obama's national security team met on Saturday for an update on the situation in Ukraine and to discuss potential policy options, a senior Obama administration official said. The meeting came as Ukraine asked the United States and other key members of the U.N. Security Council to help safeguard its territorial integrity after Russia announced plans to send armed forces into the country's autonomous Crimea region. Obama did not attend the meeting, but he has been briefed about it by his national security adviser, Susan Rice, and his national security team, an official said.

March 15, 2014, the day Russia is said to have "invaded" East Ukraine, and the day before Crimea's critial referendum which may cement the second coming of the Cold War. President Barack Obama's national security team discussed the Ukraine crisis in a session at the White House on Saturday after Secretary of State John Kerry's return from talks with his Russian counterpart in London. Obama did not attend the meeting but was being briefed about it and other developments involving Ukraine, said Laura Lucas Magnuson, a spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council.

The boat's steaming away, engines going like the clappers, but there's no one in the wheelhouse and if you keep going like that then eventually, you'll run aground ... or hit another vessel.
