  • Fri, 11:55: If we had done otherwise, it would've become one more political scrum and done the work of the attackers
  • Fri, 11:56: In Sept, when President Obama talked to Putin, he told him to "cut it out" - "there would be consequences". We handled it correctly

  • Fri, 12:05: Future actions to take will be known, some not known.
