Obama Snubs Georgian President Saakashvili

The snub is from Saakashvili’s exclusion from the bilateral schedule with Obama. Cavuto calls out the snub, but Saakashvili tactfully tries to down play it. The reason behind the snub is almost certainly is in an attempt to placate Russia, though I doubt the move will have any appreciable effect in getting Russia to help us with Iran. It is a bit surprising that he decided to attend anyways instead of sending a representative in his place as Netanyahu did.
