President Obama takes the stage at a summit of U.S. and Brazilian business leaders at the Tryp Convention Brasil 21 Center in Brasilia on Saturday.

According to Obama's public schedule, he was at the summit when the first U.S. missile was fired at a Libyan target, at 2 p.m. EDT, 4 p.m. in Brasilia. The missile landed an hour later, seven minutes before Obama appeared again to announce the start of military action.
