Obama heads to Hawaii Golf course after being updated on failed attempt to evacuate endangered US citizens in South Sudan


The White House released a statement on Saturday reassuring the American people that President Obama had been briefed about the attack on four US service members who tried unsuccessfully to evacuate American citizens in Bor, South Sudan. The President received a briefing on Friday evening, shortly after he arrived in Hawaii for his holiday vacation. And, prior to his golf outing on Saturday morning, he received some additional updates.

"Last night, upon landing in Hawaii, President Obama was updated on Air Force One on the status of the four American service members who were wounded attempting to evacuate American citizens in Bor, South Sudan," the White House statement read. "He directed his national security team to ensure the safety of our military personnel, and to continue to work with the United Nations to evacuate our citizens from Bor.... The President was briefed on the status of our military personnel, and the safety of our citizens in Bor and U.S. personnel at the U.S. Embassy in Juba."

Apparently satisfied that he had addressed the dire situation facing U.S. personnel in Bor, South Sudan, and that he had ordered his administration to ensure their safety, the President headed out to the Golf course Saturday morning after receiving some additional updates.

"Obama, in white golf shirt, hat and sunglasses, was all smiles as he drove past reporters accompanying him to the coastal golf course," the AP reported.

"Last year, Obama had to temporarily abandon his vacation to fly home amid a congressional standoff over the so-called fiscal cliff," the AP noted. "The year before, a showdown over payroll tax cuts forced him to delay the start of his Hawaii hiatus. In 2010, it was congressional wrangling over repeal of the ban on gays in the military and other issues that delayed the trip. And in 2009, Senate deliberations over Obama's signature health care law meant that Honolulu had to wait another few days."

But apparently, Mr. Obama has no plans to return to Washington DC in the midst of his current Hawaii vacation just so he can properly deal with the dire security threat facing U.S personnel in South Sudan. Trivial matters can wait till after the vacation has ended.

"Throughout his vacation," the AP notes, "Obama will continue to get regular briefings from advisers traveling with him, White House officials said. Obama and his supporters were hoping those routine updates wouldn't interfere with regular rounds of golf and family outings for shave ice, the Hawaii version of a snow cone."

Judging from the President's actions, or his lack of action, on the evening of September 11, 2012, when terrorists in Benghazi killed four Americans, it is safe to assume that Obama's Hawaii golf excursions and his family outings for shave ice will resume without interference.

Obama's first day of vacation is proof of that.
