MILLINOCKET, Maine, January 12, 2015 — On Sunday, at least 40 world leaders from Europe, Africa, the Middle East and even Russia attended a Paris rally to show solidarity with the victims of the deadly attack on Charlie Hebdo last week.
Estimates indicate that over a million people joined together in Republique Square.
But it was widely noticed by many that certain people from the U.S. were not there.
President Obama and Vice President Biden had nothing on their schedules on Sunday. The President reportedly watched football on television later in the day, while Biden talked to himself in the mirror.
Secretary of State John Kerry was on a previously scheduled trip to India, but he plans to travel to France later in the week to offer his support.
Attorney General Eric Holder was actually in Paris for a terrorism summit. He made appearances on Sunday morning talk shows, but he had undisclosed better things to do than join French President Hollande, German Chancellor Merkel, Israeli Prime Minister Netenyahu, Palestinian Authority President Abbas, British Prime Minister Cameron and dozens of other heads of state at a rally.
Only Jane Hartley, the American ambassador to France, represented the United States at the rally.
Administration officials pointed out that the President had recently made several phone calls to French President Francois Hollande.
Also, he made a trip to DC’s French embassy to sign the condolence book.
