President Barack Obama said Thursday he has ordered a full review of the January operation that killed two hostages held by al-Qaida at the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. In an eight-minute address to reporters, Obama said it is “a cruel and bitter truth” that in the “fog of war … mistakes, sometimes deadly mistakes, can occur.” “I profoundly regret what happened,” he said.
