President Obama Offers a Message to the Dutch People at the Embassy of the Netherlands

On July 22, President Barack Obama visited the Embassy of the Netherlands to offer his deepest sympathy for the lives lost in the tragic crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17.  While there, President Obama signed a condolence book for those killed.  In his message, the President said, "On behalf of the American people, I extend our deepest condolences to the people of the Netherlands as they mourn the loss of so many family and friends.  No words can adequately express the sorrow the world feels over this loss.  It is made more acute by the deep ties of friendship between our two countries.  Bound by that friendship, we will not rest until we are certain that justice is done."

President Obama added in his remarks at the Embassy, "This is an opportunity for express our solidarity with the people of the Netherlands, with whom we've been friends and had the deepest ties for centuries; and to assure the Dutch people that we will work with them to make sure that loved ones are recovered, that a proper investigation is conducted, and that ultimately justice is done."

The message by Obama is a class act. The question now is what is Obama going to do about Putin who gave them the missals. THe rebels made a mistake, but they never should have had those weapons.
