White House Reponds to Korean DMZ Crisis by Gathering 20 Top Security Officials to Draft a Paragraph [Rajiv Vindaloo]

EhBC News reports that it was all hands on deck in the Situation Room this afternoon as officials worked on a response to the DMZ boom booms:

[Those attending] include:†
  • National Security Adviser Tom Donilon;†
  • Vice President Bidenís National Security Adviser Tony Blinken;†
  • Secretary of State Hillary Clinton;†
  • [Seventeen other truly important people, most of whom you've never heard of.]

According to an unidentified source, officials decided on Domino's over Papa John's and to remove Kim-Jong Il from the position of yearbook editor.

I may have mangled that last line slightly.

Among those apparently not present were the President and the Vice President. We're probably safer with Hillary running the meeting anyway, but this is what's important, making sure the WH Press Corps gives certain people gold stars on their attendance sheets?

In one way, it's nice to see every last liberal cliche we warned people about during the 2008 campaign come true - it's fun to be proven correct, after all - but shouldn't something come out of this meeting? A strongly-worded memo, perhaps?

Update: And just as I finish writing this, the White House responds. Before I even hit the post button. Say what you will about AoS (and you will) but we get results:

Upon his return to the White House, President Obama attended a meeting of his senior national security team on the situation on the Korean peninsula. The President was briefed by National Security Advisor Tom Donilon, Secretaries Clinton and Gates, Ambassador Rice, Admiral Mullen, and General Sharp, Commander of U.S. Forces Korea. The President reiterated the unshakeable support of the United States for our ally, the Republic of Korea, and discussed ways to advance peace and security on the Korean peninsula going forward.

That's it; that's the whole thing. Nice of Obama to stop by afterwards.

When you watch this Administration, it's just like being in Churchill's bunker during the Blitz. Without the annoying Churchill part.

(H/T Allahpundit, like with 90% of everything else around here. We're pretty much the special ed trailers behind Hot Air High School.)
