Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

Nobody hear is complaining and neither is the French government, but as an American I'm deeply disappointed that President Obama did not fly to Paris to attend the rally in person rather than give a sound bite from the White House. If Biden's too busy, then send Kerry---at least he can speak French!

Actions are more important than words.

On the other hand, I am perfectly glad Obama and the US did not show much presence yesterday. It underlines the fact that this is not purely a US issue.
I'm afraid that this is giving the impression that the United States is more worried about not offending Muslims or Muslim allies than supporting France. There may have been only a fraction of the number of people killed than at the WTC, Pentagon, and Pennsylvania, but make no mistake---1/7 (or 7/1) is France's 9/11.
