The purpose of his visit was a meeting with the National Security Council to discuss the Russian military's increased attacks on Ukraine. Unfortunately, the president initially voiced support for the Russian aggression, saying Ukraine "had it coming" for having hosted the "crude anti-Islamic video which incited the entirely spontaneous Benghazi attack."
But once the difference between Ukraine and YouTube was explained to him, the president forcefully declared the importance of putting Russia back in its place by means of a four-part plan consisting of "standing firmly with our allies," "seeking justice," "launching an investigation," and "blaming Bush."
No specific timetable was given for the plan's implementation - although it was suggested by a White House spokesperson that the president would make development of such a timetable an urgent priority following his next vacation.
The president also used his meeting with the National Security Council to discuss every detail of the huge and growing terrorist threat from ISIS (the "JV team") with the best and brightest minds available (Valerie Jarrett's "VJ team").
After which he held a brief news conference in which he announced to the world - and especially to ISIS - the conclusions reached by this remarkable braintrust: "we don't have a strategy yet."
Nor, it would appear, a freaking clue about how to deal with critical foreign affairs or our national security.
