Obama doesn’t want to be ‘foil’ for Iranian government
CBS’ Harry Smith interviewed President Barack Obama in the White House Map Room Friday. The interviewed was aired Monday on The Early Show.
Obama told Smith that he wasn’t more supportive of Iranian protesters because he didn’t want to be a “foil” for actions against them. Obama also said the U.S. is prepared in the event that North Korea may fire a missile toward Hawaii.
