As far at I can tell, the date of the funeral for Polish President Lech Kaczynski and the others killed in the plane crash has not yet been set.
Undoubtedly, this will be a monumental event with dignitaries from around the world, and millions of people in the streets.
The statement issued by Obama today was appropriate.
Obama needs to attend the funeral for the leader of a nation which has fought beside us in Iraq and Afghanistan, and whose people have a special affinity for the United States because of our shared history of opposing communism.
I am not going to politicize this funeral.
I expect Obama to do the right thing as the President of this country. If he can fly to Copenhagen on short notice to try to win the Olympics for Chicago, he can fly to Warsaw to help bury a true friend of the United States.
Until proven wrong, I am going to assume the best.
