It is our policy that we have not [provided] and are not providing weapons to the Syrian opposition. But we are continuing to review our options.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev did appear in our systems when he travelled, but we also know that the FBI did a thorough investigation in 2011 and did not find any terrorism activity foreign or domestic…What we learned from, in a warning from Russia, for example, and the action that sparked the FBI to look into Tamerlan Tsarnaev. All of these issues are obviously under investigation.
"We haven't seen actions to back up the rhetoric,"
As the president has said, we will never be able to eradicate every act of evil in this country, but if we can save even one child's life we have an obligation to try when it comes to the scourge of gun violence.

Iran is isolated and is seeking to divert attention from it's domestic problems.
"We're urging all sides to work to resolve differences peacefully and through dialogue in a manner consistent with the rule of law and the democratic political process,"
The Palestinians will not and cannot achieve statehood through a declaration at the United Nations. It is a distraction and in fact it's counterproductive. That remains our position.
