Obama LATE for moment of silence as rest of the G20 leaders hold observance to mourn Paris attacks

G20 leaders in Turkey rose from their seats to honor Paris terror victims on Sunday

President Barack Obama arrived at the G20 summit’s first working session after the silent observance was already underway

He said economic conditions in the Middle East contribute to the global terror crisis

Later in the day Obama insisted he wouldn’t send troops to the Middle East and called the Paris attacks a ‘setback’

President Barack Obama arrived late to a ‘moment of silence’ in Belek, Turkey on Sunday as the rest of the world’s most powerful leaders stood for a somber observance to honor Friday’s terror-attack victims in France.

The G20 leaders ‘gathered around a large round table for their first working session,’ a White House pool reporter wrote from the scene.

‘President Erdogan began the session with a one-minute moment of silence. The leaders stood to observe the moment. President Obama had not yet arrived and walked in at 4:34pm, after the moment of silence had begun.’

Despite his late showing, Obama offered his thoughts on the coordinated attacks in Paris, tying the rise of the ISIS terror army to economic conditions in the Middle East.

‘There is a strong link between economy and security,’ he told his peers.

And referring to the refugee crisis spreading from Syria to Europe and beyond, he said that ‘society has not passed this exam with good grades.’

Obama has continued to insist on accepting 10,000 Syrian refugees into the United States by year’s end, despite warnings that ISIS could embed terrorists in the flood of humanit seeking asylum.

Yep, Obama is yet again shown to be a disgrace. I’m sure he thought he was “too busy” to show up on time.

Obama is on CPT.


 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
