President Obama’s statement on the killing of 16 Afghan civilians by a U.S. soldier in Afghanistan:

“I am deeply saddened by the reported killing and wounding of Afghan civilians. I offer my condolences to the families and loved ones of those who lost their lives, and to the people of Afghanistan, who have endured too much violence and suffering. This incident is tragic and shocking, and does not represent the exceptional character of our military and the respect that the United States has for the people of Afghanistan. I fully support Secretary Panetta’s and General Allen’s commitment to get the facts as quickly as possible and to hold accountable anyone responsible.”

face to face

President Obama began his meeting with Hamid Karzai at the NATO summit in Lisbon on Saturday by asking the Afghan president about his family.

“How’s your family?” Obama asked him. Karzai, whose brother is being investigated by the United States for corruption, replied, “Good.”

Karzai praised Obama for setting the right “tone” at NATO, and Obama thanked him.

“That was my goal,” Obama said. “Every once in a while, I do things right.”
