President of Yemen visits White House

Washington (CNN) - President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi of Yemen visited the White House Thursday, but is "not meeting with" President Obama, a senior administration official said.

    Mr. Obama received criticism because he did not meet with world leaders. Had he met with leaders they would call that showboating. Foils you cannot have it both ways. This week at the UN should not be a forum for leaders but a listening and learning time. Let's see what these leaders have to say and then move forward. Give them all a chance to speak.

    Here's how that conversation went...either get control of the terrorists in your country or get used to predators making things disapear. Your choice. (and, no. This president (unlike a willard) will not run to a microphone to tell the world what they talked about)

    Perhaps after Obamas short meet he asked him to meet with Biden or The NSA chief or the Army chief of staff.
    For sure it will be a " secret content meeting" and maybe the whitehoue was chosen to avoin non swithced off microphones.
