President Obama Responds To Israeli Troops on the Ground, MH17

President Obama’s attention has been thrown into many different directions as of late and the last 24 hours have been particularly troublesome.

Yesterday, a Malaysian airliner was shot down in Ukraine, killing all passengers and crew members, while Israeli troops have begun an invasion of the Gaza Strip after days of rocket attacks from Hamas.

Meanwhile, President Obama was pushing for transportation funding for the Delaware bridge before attending two Democratic Party fundraisers in New York.

ABC News White House correspondent Ann Compton joined us to talk about the U.S.’s involvement in each of these two situations.
