Barack Obama Skips National Security Meetings on 15,000 Russian Troops in Ukraine

Reports indicate that a National Security meeting was held on Saturday by members of the Obama Administration to discuss policy options when it comes to Russian troops entering Ukraine to control instability.

According to Time magazine’s Zeke Miller, President Obama skipped the meeting.

“Obama did not attend the meeting, but WH official says he has been briefed by Susan Rice and his national security team,” says Miller in a tweet that went out around 3:00 pm EST, Saturday.

Miller went on to tweet that Vice President Joe Biden did attend the meeting via video conference. As we reported Saturday, Russian President Vladimir Putin has been given the green light by the Russian Parliament to use military force in response to government overthrow in Ukraine. A spokesman for Ukraine’s mission at the United Nations tells CNN that currently Russia has 15,000 troops in Crimea.

President Obama has warned Russian President Putin to not interfere in Ukraine, but the White House has already admitted that they have few if any options here.
