Tapper: Really No Explanation For Why Obama Is Not Meeting With Foreign Leaders

"Their basic answer when asked about this -- and we've been asked about it for quite some time -- is the one that you just heard Jay Carney explain. The idea that the schedules do no align -- President Obama's in New York, Monday, Tuesday, and then going back. Prime Minister Netanyahu will be in New York later in the week," ABC News' chief White House correspondent Jake Tapper said to FOX News' Greta van Susteren about President Obama's decision not to meet with world leaders.

"But it is true that last year, when President Obama was here for the U.N. General Assembly he had at least a dozen meeting with world leaders. And having covered President Obama since he took office, this is an anomaly, this idea that you come here and not have meetings with world leaders. There really isn't a full explanation that's been forthcoming, other than the president has a busy schedule," Tapper said.
