    Lawmakers skip NSA briefing to attend Paris air show

    Two lawmakers skipped a recent high-level briefing on National Security Agency (NSA) snooping so they could go to the Paris Air Show. [WATCH VIDEO]
    Six lawmakers actually attended the show last weekend but one of them, Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), was able to attend the briefing, according to his office, and catch an evening flight to France, demonstrating it was possible to attend a briefing on a major political issue and still join the plush codel.


    Sens. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) and Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) missed the 2:30 p.m. session to catch an afternoon flight from Dulles International Airport.

    "What difference at this point, does it make?" Get it right.

    Maybe if Obama hadn't gone on so many vacations, he'd know what's going on in his administration.
