President Obama briefed on North Korea

(CNN) –This is a photo released by the White House of President Obama receiving a briefing on North Korea by James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, and his National Security Adviser Tom Donilon. The photo was taken during the Presidential Daily Briefing in the Oval Office this morning.

Speaking with reporters aboard Air Force One as the president traveled to Kokomo, Indiana, White House spokesman Bill Burton said the president was "outraged" by the North's actions, and would call President Lee of South Korea at some point today to discuss the matter.

    "Obama briefed on North Korea"
    Teahadists still unclear on the term "briefs".
    Still stuck in the Clinton era.

    As a reminder to all, Sarah Palin did not know the difference between North korea and South Korea. She mistakenly called North Korea our allies on a radio show. Sarah the quitter, did not know until she was told that we are allied with South Korea. The reason that I bring this up is because, SP has spent the last two years smearing the President. Paybacks will be brutal and what goes around, comes around.
