Let's see now; what's the message here? Did anyone mistake the tenor of the meeting and what should have been a friendly encounter turned contentious as the media crowded into an uncomfortable place without recognizing that Russian leader Putin requires a control over his environment so that he does not get caught in a US Capitol style 'photo op' menagerie. After all, what did the media expect?
It could be further that someone might have wanted to cause the ruckus in order to send a further message that the US/Russian relationship is not as amicable as many would have the American citizenry believe.
In Hawaii, those citizens were on lockdown as a diversion to the issues abroad required an F22 Raptor response; a classic shift of attentions and intentions, making sure that there was no making a mistake that the Russians can ruffle feathers at any time of their choosing now that they no longer need to defend 'hacking' allegations from the previous administration before this one.
