James S. Brady Press Briefing Freedom11.55 Clock EDT
MR. CARNEY: good day – or good morning. (Laughter) I think not. Thanks for being here, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome, as always, to the lighthouse and the Brady Briefing Room. Before I answer your questions I just wanted to associate article that caught my look not so long agone.
note first of all I would say that it is based on anonymous sources, so I’m not sure it’s true, and hopefully it’s not because it is that the Speaker of the House John Boehner, in a closed meeting with House Republicans has reported that the discussion about whether or not to allow the student loan interest rates to a false debate about verdoppeln.Er said essentially that it is inconsistent, and he said that it is not active to happen in time to prevent these prices from doubling.
our position to recognize this, the position of the President, that is, one, it is unconscionable, these rates allow up to three times for 7 one million students across the country, dependent for low interest rates, so that they again go to college. Support for the measures taken to prevent this is usually non-partisan, and we hope that this story – based once more, in addition to reporting from the closed session meeting – turns out not to be true
is the other point. , it makes it makes the suggestion that we ever heard from the speaker in the office, that education is somehow not an economic problem.He says that they want to focus on jobs, and suggests that they believe that education is not a person, what you can do with jobs. The American people do not believe, know that the President does not believe, know that education is everything for the implementation of employment, with economic growth and the future of this country – which is why the President has indicated education, so unspeakable in his presidency and therefore he has a problem of preventing the need to take action that the debt rate of doubling.
And I want your questions.
Q The first circuits that morning there was on the Defense of Marriage Act. Can you remember the case that DOMA is unconstitutional to comment? Would you like to see the Supreme Committee to take this case? And if so, this government would be active argument, all signed for the overthrow of a law with a former Democratic president?
MR. CARNEY: Skillfully, Anne, as you cognise, the President has determined that § 3 of DOMA is unconstitutional. Thus, his attorney general. And all this to defend this reason, the administration nary more equal protection challenges against them before the courts.This is the position of president is held for some time, has now, and it was enforced by the Department of Justice.
In view of this decision, which was the DOJ is an active participant in, I would you to the refer to the Ministry of Justice. But there is no sound out that this is in concert with the President’s views.
Q But the question is whether your responsibility a little passive point that you do not protect them and take to say that active and argue for them – to overturn the decree
. MR. CARNEY: The Justice Department took part in this very litigation within the 1stCircuit, in line with the point that the President and the Attorney General have articulated, which means that they judge not, that § 3 of the Constitution is DOMA ist.Ich can not predict what the neighboring stages in dealing with cases of this views and articles thereof. I want you to represent the branch of the judiciary. But I would not necessarily call it passive.
Q back to Syria.Halogen-appointed UN Ambassador Rice solar-day, which they said was a worst-case scenario, and said that is indeed the most likely scenario in the crisis, in Syria there was a regional sectarian situation – conflict arms flows to both sides in a kind of proxy action, and then the international community is simple – the world powers start taking action revealed by the UN Security Council. They would be proposing that the curing of the point of USnimmt to where this – is where this goes, whether the development Annan to break down completely or not. Can you comment whether what we see?
MR.CARNEY: Well, I would say though is that we were on the demand side focus, to bring about a political transition in Syria rather than later, just because the going longer this continues, the longer is that Assad and his henchmen must the brutal murder of Syrian people, which is much more likely to develop a sectarian war, the more likely that it spills over Syrian border, the more likely that there will be a war in the vicinity of agents of different actors, including Iran, of course,the engaging already in cancerous behavior turns next to a view on the situation of the Syrian and entered stirring this type of activity and not to be alone, to do so.
So, what we see in Syria happen only underscores the urgent need to take measures to prevent further decentralization of the situation there, run action to support the process of political transition, isolate and force them to Assad’s true in the retrieval of performance that the transition can proceed.
And that’s why we have worked our differences with the Russians and others to overcome this issue.It’s why we have an even greater unity in the international community in the League Nations Security Council, at the United Nations have by and large, because this situation is as Ambassador Rice described it.
Q spoke of certain types of actions that are taken over the area of the Security Council, would indicate clearly that the U.S. could take such measures. Can something specific on what comes next?
MR.CARNEY: Well, I think that – I’m not going to trailer the next steps, but we are working steadily working in several international organizations, in the context of the “friends of Syria,” jointly and independently, like other nations own, more sanctions impose in order to isolate and further actions under pressure to Assad to stand by the opposition, as it presents itself to create humanitarian comfort to the Syrian people, not to provide lethal aid to the opposition to nehmen.Das are the types of things that we were both collective and individual actions exploit already doing, and other nations, the very mortal.
You seat different iterations of how this has turned out just this week, where a group of nations acting in concert to expel Syrian diplomats in which only the other day, in a joint US-Qatar Designation sanctions, the anti-Syria International Islamic Bank were. Then the kinds of things we can do in addition to partners or independently.
, Q has the administration have any idea of an arms embargo, quarantine surrounding Syria in order to prevent them from actually given arms from other countries?
MR. CARNEY: I do not have a preview for you of potential next steps.We regularly consult with our allies and partners around the world, with members of the Security Council and the wider “Friends of Syria” group on possible next path. But I have no specific cause for you and nothing on that particular option.
Q is off the end of time – I realize that it hit a deputy about a week or so on top of the issue of Syria. Once the last time I was there from this meeting?
MR. CARNEY: I would enjoy working with you on that check. There are regular meetings to Syria.This is evident in the international arena, a matter of great and extreme focus right now because of the terrible brutality of the Syrian people and the condition of the international village to take movements.
Q And finally, a diplomat, I understand the position of the administration and the concern that military excitement would only cause more harm than good as, leastwise Astatine this stage. At the human level, what is there to see the President, these reports like to hear about the brutalization of children to the children in Syria?And how hard it is for him to go through this, knowing that – believe as he does – that it can not do anything helium it? And it will change its determination at all Changed? It his desire to take action or find space or other to do something?
MR. CARNEY: Well, it strengthens his resolve, if it is the need to do all that says is fused – do anything that may try to Unified States, both independently and in cooperation with our partners to bring about a change bring to this dynamic in Syria.It scared him, as does anyone who watches the witnesses or reports about what is happening in Syria. The brutality is exhibited with Assad -. It is safe fate in history as a tyrant and an outlaw human rights and the lowest of the benign market leader for all kinds of people
The President is very bewusst.Und when he makes judgments he considered obvious that suffer more. He has to make judgments in the vicinity of all considerations in mind, beginning with national security interests of the United States of America.And he, practical judgments take on what steps we can craft has to both temporary anti-social and in collaboration with partners to bring about the development that we are poor and therefore best for the United States, moreover, as for the Syrian people. And that’s what he does.
There is no question that is as powerful as the United States that we are not the end of all atrocities around the Welt.Es is a fact that we work with our partners and orientation to the types of actions that this type of appalling behavior may not like to slow down in parts of the world have resulted.One must be on the decision-making and action focused on what you do when the United States of America to bring about the desired result, and that you are not the actions, unintended consequences, which desperately to the United States are creating and bad, in some cases for the people much you try to help.
This is the way that the President halogen sees all these types of problems. It’s the way he situations, saw in Egypt, Yemen, Libya, and the way he looks in Syria.
Dan and then Kristen.
Q Thank you.Thing more can you tell us about what was discussed during this sunny video conference with Merkel and Monti and Hollande? And also, what is the consensus of this body on the management of the crisis, the euro zone?
Mr. CARNEY: When I think that we put out ultimate night, the president had to participate in a video conference with the leaders of Germany, Italy and France. The discussions were a follow-up to discussions about the crisis in the euro area, which were held at the G8 summit at Camp David.They also were able to discuss – and to what we have been talked about so far in the information back – she had also been to Syria diskutieren.Aber the situation of the euro area, the capital focus of these talks, and they had discussions about the work what is being discussed at the G8, and they were also discussions in anticipation of the G20 meeting held later – well, next month, within a few weeks in Mexico.
I think one of the most important contribution to remember about the outcome of the G8, that all nations agreed that to be close to be a focal point through which growth and job creation, and that is certainly true germinate, today, and comes from the Videokonferenz.Dass Europe an approach to help the short-term needs, the economy within Europe and help to build it jobs with the medium-and longer-term need for reform is like should take – the president has made clear his views, we need to get out, the European nations to help get their finances in order.This is the kind of partisan approach that the President has pursued here in the States conjunction. And I think as has been said, there are statements about the need for jobs and economic growth in the area of residence affect.
Q New York – at a different point, New York’s exclusion – set to this great sweet drinks verbieten.Und given the fact that the First Lady has the war childhood size, which is the reaction of White House to something?
MR. CARNEY: I saw these reports. I do not have a specific reaction. Apparently the pressure of obesity is very important.The effect of obesity on the nation’s spa, is enormous on the health of our families and health care costs. But I do not have a specific response to the notice within parvenu York Municipal.
Q Jay, I will try again to Syria. They have brought deep skepticism expressed that the Annan plan can Industrie.Da everything we have seen within the last few days, why not simply declare that the Annan plan dead and seek to arrive at the other drugs this point? Why do you –
MR.CARNEY: Well, we will continue to trade with and alongside our partners for additional steps. The point of why we skeptical about Assad’s willingness to comply with its obligations under the world is the Annan plan, because he has failed to comply with any of the six points contained in it, and he has continued to attack brutally, his own people – with the last -. healthy, not least, but unfortunately not very long with the dreadful execution in Houla
However, there are some positive results from the Annan plan, despite the failure of the Assad to adhere to it, and the is where there are observers of the United Nations in situ, there was a decline in violence.This is an appropriate thing. Where there are UN observers on the spot allows for more information almost what is going on in Syria, to become of this country and widely known. It allows all of the international community attempts to counteract the propaganda and lies made by the fore Assad community.
I think, Secretary President this point, as well as other gemacht.So we support the Annan plan, because if it complied with Assad would immensely glucinium in the interest of the Syrian people, and it would be a decline to bring – a ceasefire and a withdrawal of troops.We are skeptical that it is complied with the closure and articles thereof, and therefore we are with our partners about other options and other steps mentioned. Use of
Q I think most people would consider most outside observers to conclude that things are worse, seem to think not. That makes the president a deadline, a breaking point in his own opinion on this spine?
MR.CARNEY: We made it clear to someone – the President and others made it clear that the present window of opportunity is allowed for a political transition in Syria Halcyon – not all run for a long stay. Location is an important need for the international community to come together and continued resistance to unify Assad, the communities in an effort to persuade Assad community and pressure and isolate the Assad regime to the point where this transition is allowed in fully take place.
If this does not happen, the consequences are very serious.And that’s what Ambassador Rice was, roughly speaking, and Secretary Clinton and I, because the consequences of a waiver of the steadfast action, more violence – rigor, which Syria spills the boundaries, violence leads to more through greater participation in this Iran for trial, and others, to the point where it is a proxy war of sorts. And this is bad for the region and for the Syrian citizens and bad bad for the world.
So that’s why we have with the Russians and to try to work others to tell them our views on this, why try to persuade her, that permission is still such terrible consequences.
[V89 ] Q But I guess what I wonder at what point –
MR. CARNEY: I’m not a solar day for you, Kristen. I consider that as the President –
Q no date, but it is something that is a red line for the President –
MAN. CARNEY: I’m not actively pursuing the next steps or options.I can tell you that it is very urgent that all measures be taken to be present for the international community to unify and more take home with them it is clear that a transition has to take place in Syria.
Question: Can I follow up on the question of Russia? I mean, you – when Chief President proposed a UN Security Council arms embargo in the last month, it was quickly shot down over Russia. Could be a – it’s a way to impose – As discussed earlier have Jake – except some human or a separate one-sided arms embargo by the Security Council?Would that have any – you are always a sense of the Russians that they would be willing to entertain this thought, especially considering that they now provide the Assad regime in the vicinity of weapons
MR? . CARNEY: I have no detailed information on display to give would-be on our conversations with the Russians or others on this subject and on the next steps. I can tell you that we are working our differences besides the Russians on Syria to überwinden.Unsere points are terribly clear, and we have made it clear in public and in our conversations with them.We just did not believe it is in Russia’s interest, let alone taste in Syria, Assad for the community continues to be supported by, and therefore, it is still brutal to his own people. In addition, I have not anything I can give to you today.
Q a lawyer, you have a question sunny day on sex-selective abortion. The house is an election on that ban. I understand the administration against the Verbot.Meine question is, since the President has been open for some hostile discrimination based on sex, but can give you sex-selective abortion?
MR.CARNEY: Well, Ed refused to manage gender-based discrimination in all forms. But to subject the result of this legislation beryllium doctors would be prosecuted if they fail to determine the motivations back of a distinctly personal and private decisions.
I think we re against discrimination based on sex in all cases. I think our balance sheet, which is very clear. The President’s record on that is very clear.But the purpose of this law – or the result of this regulation would subject doctors criminally prosecuted all his, for failing to divine the motivations of their patients if it is a very personal and medical outcome
. Q – a decree then contract with this issue? For the real central issue with which a child –
MISTER. CARNEY:?To provide physicians, their patients read minds
Q In order to figure out a way – to find out how to get to the bottom – outraged, because if the one-child policy in Communist China turns up people of all stripes embassy in that country, that girls are killed in Wesentlichen.Wie can that happen within this bucolic?
MISTER. CARNEY: Again Ed, we are against sex discrimination in all its forms – in all its forms. And we do not organize to pursue selective legislation to achieve the opposite ideological goals. We argue that it in all its forms.
This law the hopefully unintended consequence of criminalizing a failure by a physician and a physician prosecution for criminal conduct if they were to fail or element somehow, the motivation of a patient in making a very private medical decision would intuitively .
Q The President is now obviously presents a portrait of former President Bush.Ich wonder if they have these private lunch, do you think the president tries, in a little insight on how kind from Massachusetts to ? soak (Laugh.) As I noted David Axelrod is in this state today.
MR.CARNEY: I think, as I was yesterday found that the discussion which will take place – or is nearly at forte at that moment – between President Obama and the two former Presidents Bush, like other members of their families, about what it’s like survive – the privilege, the rare privilege of living in the White Manor for not properly president only their families need their present state of human beings to serve
I think that, as I said yesterday -. and Three presidents to eat lunch at this – there is a commonality across the experience of political differences.And I gather is that this is what the president willing to discuss.
There is also a commonality of experiences that I chew on everything for original ladies that – and for families. In the case of President George W. Bush, he raised along with two relatively young daughters present in the White House. And I know that President Obama and the early women’s very grateful for the advice and information that the President and his wife, Bush made available to them during the transition, not only approved of the aspects of their duties only to the very personal nature and the familiar ones.And I know that President Obama and was the first woman to sound forward and enjoy this encounter.
Q last thing on the. The European debt crisis – I think you asked Dan Astir – is jammed like that white Abode – Former President George HW plant also present – angry that an economy can fit end to this President for a term arsenic? As part has happened to him.
MR. CARNEY: You want to turn this into a political prism lunch.I think that –
Q Well, it’s a pretty similar situation where you have a president who has a few successes on the national security had before, but after facing a very difficult off-present element home and George HW Bush faced that too.
MR. CARNEY: Well, I would just say that President Obama is probably not a lot of time talking about election year politics with the President either inferior. And I think, you know, he has taken in the vicinity of former President George HW inferior on several occasions.Argonon track has a very high regard for foreign policy, President Bush’s record in particular and in general estimated the service of all members of the Bush family gestellt.Und available again, that transcends political differences, and of course there are political differences.
As for the race, I think both races are different.What the president says, again and again and I try to be reflective, it’s perfect because it headwind, as the tragedy in the euro area, on the world economy and contribute to the American economy that we have in Washington is behind terminals and bash the things that we can control, to isolate the American mining of these headwinds, to help grow the economy, the activity they create jobs.
You are the president exercise again tomorrow to talk about the need for Congress to act on those elements which raise it because, that mortal was in the past and the future within enjoy bipartisan support – very specific elements – a “To Do” list that can be fulfilled, contributing as a contribution to economic growth and job creation. These are things that support the Americans, whether they are Democrats or Republicans. And they are things that Congress should act on the top.
Q on Syria as a negative is Russia going to support the procurement Assad?
MR.CARNEY: I think I’ve made it clear that here we are working to try next to consult and to overcome our differences with Russia against Syria. And I think reflects what was clearly at the United Nations Security Council, where decisions have been lodged with Russia a veto on the matter.So we have, in spite of these obstacles was by and large with a number of international partners to isolate and pressure Assad, who are supported by the opposition, they constitute itself, to ensure humanitarian comfort to the Syrian population. We have advocated in cooperation with Russia and other nations, Kofi Annan’s plan
So there is someone already things we are capable and have done -. Can do and do to the political transition process that the Syrian people to be so expensive, and hope to have to mediate.Only location is no question that greater international unity would be the plan here to help to bring about this transition sooner rather than later.
Question: How do you work to overcome those differences? And what gives you hope that Russia will move at all?
MR. CARNEY: Well, as I very quickly said many times, we are in consultations with a number of international partners, with the Russians, like others is precisely against this Problem.Es an expression that, for obvious reasons, a lot of attention gets here , the Utter Branch, and elsewhere. And we will continue to have these discussions.
And we consider that the Assad regime makes the whole thing for us through his brutal behavior. This is unfortunate, but it is obvious. It is -. Nobody in the world needs the United States to Assad’s behavior you observe, because it obviously is for the whole world
We are close to our allies, dedicated work in the vicinity of our partners, working with members of the Security Council and others in the lighting obvious responsibility that bears Assad for the thousands of deaths of its own people to take an additional behavior.
Q President Obama is often accused President George W.Bush for the current regime of regulation, two wars in Iraq’s debt. Is there a lanky event all day for the two of them?
MR. CARNEY: Norah, will I speak what I said yesterday, and lately even that is certainly that Plant political differences, there were elements of President George W. President and former President, as President Clinton and to his family Revelation came to be – and the First Lady Clinton, Hillary Clinton portraits. There were differences, I’m sure in the past, have a sitting president has presided over these ceremonies.Only there’s so much much for the under common men olibanum, who occupied this office and for the families who have lived in the White House that I think a lot of respect and esteem of all who will participate in this lunch held for each other.
There is much to discuss. As I noted yesterday, there is a small collection of family, as it is, sitting at a desk in the Oval Office and must know the kind of decisions that a president makes race. And again, is the commonality it transcends politics.
Q Thank you, Jay.Especially after au fait Eds question, in addition to the two actions that are open to the President of schedule with President Bush are, in that any other investment – say, is President Obama going to be a Bittie private incident have one of the bushes or other types of events that we know outside of the two?
MR. CARNEY:. I have no further details on the schedule of the President, you also what has been made exoteric give
Q a lawyer, you have in the past about the United States’ role in the unification and security check of the Syrian opposition said.And I wonder what the purpose of this effort – to give to someone or a group of Syrians someone behind all of the post-Assad rally? Is it to make confident that the resource is in the right hands, be it humanitarian or military? I know part of the States can not provide that – what is the purpose of this
MR. CARNEY: Well, I think you’ve described two of the purposes of losing it. In order to bring about an effective political transition in Syria, which serves the interest of the Syrian people, it makes eminent sense to relieve the opposition to form and to determine the various components of the opposition.
On the question of whether one of the reasons for humanitarian and non-lethal assistance that the United States to exclude from falling into the wrong hands provision, I think that is certainly the case, too. We recognize and have said that there are elements of the Syrian opposition, not to the democratic ideals of the wide Syrian people, not necessarily friends of the United States. These elements appear to us to be fringe elements. They do not represent the opposition as undivided. But we participate to be mindful, dass And that’s why we make these evaluations and assessments.
Q find something to get up in the susceptibility of the official opposition –
MR. CARNEY: We dont – it is doing most of the Syrian people and the representatives of the opposition to organize themselves. We have the ability to support and to warn. And I say “we” to speak at the facility in general terms of the “Friends of Syria” who have worked within this task. So it’s not for us to create or to stand stirring opposition. There is help for us to help, as it itself stands up.
Q: But if you are vetting them, there is at least implicit approval from the United States, precisely?
MR.CARNEY: Skillfully, again, I think you went to the point about aid, the well can the United States and the importance of ensuring we arsenic, that assistance must be provided reaches the intended recipients can. When it comes to humanitarian aid, obviously, that the system of the Syrian people who are strong for their burden -. Because of the Assad regime’s brutality
Q Jay, did you do today on Assad spoke in terms of brutality, human rights violations, war crimes potential.As Prime Minister Cameron was here at the White House, spoke noble gas around, trying a record that may participate for the upcoming international law, each said to bauen.Und you also interested in seeing the President Assad within a peaceful transition. I’m just trying to clarify what the president says would imagine that the future for all parties if Assad were inert to participate in any category of peaceful transition? Is it inevitable that argonon would be held accountable for all the crimes that you have described?Or it is possible, and the President would consent to his playing to a certain port for uninjured flight that?
MR. CARNEY: Well, again, I think we are focused on bringing about this transition. We are not focusing on decisions that the Syrian people would have to make decisions and that the international community would haben.Es fashion to the other benefits of the Annan plan, despite the failure of Assad to stay with her that we observers the United Nations, which may have to invoice -.Objectively account for the actions of the Assad regime and the bat forces that support it
But I will not prejudge now what that leads in terms of its future. The point about a peaceful transition, it is as opposed to a full-out sectarian civil war has on it. This is obviously not a desirable outcome. And that is what the result would be here if it made no further standardization in the international community and more efforts to isolate and threat to the Assad regime.
Q only in terms of timing, that Kristen had to ask, is that an incentive – the world community offering associate incentive to Assad in any way that it would slip gin
[V193 ] MR. CARNEY: Again, I do not everyone has the confidence to give you almost the discussions that are underway on the next steps. What has happened is a political transition that serves the interest of the Syrian people. But this is almost obvious is not quite what the merged states. We are with our partners to ensure everything we can to help to do to make it happen.
Q Thanks.There is a high academy student from Indiana named Elizabeth Olivas is sitting at this hour in the consulate in Juarez, I know. She lost the deadline for the return to complete the legal work for a day, and she is in danger of missing her big Academy final on Saturday. Does everyone have been in – the president is alert this yarn? And was close to any discussion here at the White House, whether it would be appropriate to ask the President for Immigration to give to their particular case –
MR. CARNEY: Ann, I am of this history to learn from you, so I’ll have to take the question. I have not heard it discussed.But questions like these I think are best directed towards DHS and frost, Immigration and Customs.
Q The President has for a period for the completion of compulsory breaks for all those $ 250,000 or more concepts. Nancy Pelosi has occurred by excitation with different, and that number to $ 1,000,000. Her office says there is a way to move the process along. I wonder what the White House thinks of her proposal.
MR. CARNEY: Fein, the position of the President been clear for years.As you rightly point out, we need to end the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans and permanently for each family brings in little know than $ 250,000 per Jahr.Wir that democratic body in Congress to make that business taxes are not up to millions of families, the halogen end of the year because the president is committed.And the question now is whether to increase the Republicans in elections for control of the middle class and keep the stroke-class hostage at the insistence that the richest Americans to hold on to tax breaks that are already powerful, have to contribute our deficits to get to the economic environment, they do not need.
Q So noble gas does not – he is not keen on the $ 1 million -. Increase to $ 1,000,000
MR.CARNEY: You see, we continue to work with leaders in Congress, as progress is best to make sure that we protect not only middle-class families from a tax hike, but also how we achieve a fair plan for the to reduce the deficiency and avoid sequestration – Washington jargon used. I apologize to anyone out there can see, only you know what I’m talking about. And that’s -. Obviously, these ongoing discussions
Our position is clear, and it has been blue for a very long time.
Q So he does not reject down of appendages?
MR.CARNEY: We are leaders in Congress have to do with the discussions on the arbeiten.Wir. I think the question will be asked, is the Republicans that are part of each curve have refused to impose meaningful action to protect the middle course, to ensure that they will continue to receive tax relief, unless the wealthiest Americans who have enjoyed significant benefits over the last ten years regular audits will receive additional tax cuts or have extensive tax cuts. That is priceless and is not to say that the kind of balanced approach that we are the state, want to get our fiscal challenges.
Q on the call yesterday evening the leaders in question have a rescue package set for Spain?
MR.CARNEY. I have no special features for the conversation beyond what I have said and what we were reading the paper last night
Q said, can tell you when the call was planned for America?
MR. CARNEY: It was a follow-up on discussions that were held at the G8 obvious. I do not have a specific date for solar, as it is the people in the calendar pencil.
Q And in Syria, told you more quickly in the briefing that Iran has been playing I think, a pernicious role in Syria.Can you wanting more, what role the U.S. sees Iran has been playing?
MR. CARNEY: Well, I think Iran was transparent.Sie have admitted involvement in the Syrian situation with causing troops to Syria. This fact raises further strengthen Iran’s continued efforts, his nefarious influence in the region, underlining Iran’s fear of Syria without the Assad regime. Assad’s partnership alongside Iran is a direct insult to the Syrian culture, revolution, and the Arabs throughout the Middle East and North Continent.
We are also supporting the prevention of Iran continue to provide financial, material and logistical support, focusing on the Syrian regime.Even here they have not done anything anderes.Und I suspect that it then Persia comes to Assad’s help is available, only further tribute, as isolated and grown over the WAN-Assad and his activity.
Q will be the President of day to night in Chicago. A duo of questions about it. In general, once the President has his last episode of the street he would fly again, even if it is completed late in the night. He has to stay overnight I guess.Can you confirm whether he has to stay at his own home, but also to characterize, if he be there this Sat morning for some purpose, or whether he has any idea that the meaning of halogen home gives him a bit Washington needs a break from it and refresh you?
MR.CARNEY: I can tell you that the president still enjoys returning to Chicago, Illinois on recourse. I can not grab me details about where he is, but I can assure you that he is happy in Chicago.
Q act on you know whether he wants to visit the campaign headquarters or something like that this example?
MR. CARNEY:. I’m not planning on any updates for you on that
Q Jay, I would like to ask you about two issues. First of all I would like to follow-up of the DOMA ruling today. The President of the repeal of DOMA fight. Noble gas has passed legislation to achieve this goal has gebilligt.Er stem cells defend the law in court. He has sent Justice Department lawyers to litigate against this decision before the Court.But the administration has –
MR. CARNEY: Well said. (Laughter) Yes?
Q Is the administration look into the effectiveness of holding elections in the Democratic-controlled Senate to repeal the law a symbolic element of resistance against this law?
MR. CARNEY: Well, I have not heard that discussed. The president’s position is clear. The trip took place as this to develop are clear. The participation of the Department of Justice in the specific processes is to clean aus.Aber I’m not sure thing for the proposal, which I have not heard.
Q On the contrary, I would like to ask you is, there was a choice between yesterday Exxon Mobil shareholders to protection against discrimination for LGBT its more than 80,000 workers believe that work on the corporation. The shareholders approved the proposal down, but it is still possible to accept for the board, it lacks the shareholders to act.Back in April, when you done with the Executive Order did not speak to that point, you stated that the administration was committed, next engaging and educational all sectors of the community concern of major corporations to contractors for small businesses, and public awareness the human and financial costs of discrimination in men. Following up with these words, the administration choose to turn Exxon Mobil, that the non-discrimination line?
MR. CARNEY: Well, that’s certainly our position, and what I said in April, still applies today.And this kind of conversation, generally speaking, to plonk on revenue – have been and will continue stattfinden.Ich have nothing specifically to do this event and this vote that just took place. But by and large, yes, that’s our position.
Q has informed the administration – any communication whatever with Exxon Mobil
MR?. CARNEY: Again, I can tell you by and large, that [was] this kind of human had conversations. Our position and views of these are remarkably fine. This is why the President ENDA, a legislative solution to this type of discrimination.And these discussions are continuing. I just do not know what to tell someone about you to certain conversations with certain companies or entrepreneurs
Q In the past year -. The past decade, ExxonMobil has taken more than a $ 1 billion in federal contracts. In the wake of this vote, the administration go back to the idea of the exhibition, that the Executive Order, except for contractors to get the federal money if they do not have policies against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity?
MR. CARNEY: Well, we do not expect an EO will be issued this temperament in this case.We are in the works, as I have said in the deceased, close to Congress. We support the legislation that has been introduced, and we will continue to work for him to believe all the support bauen.Wir that the legislative process of the present avenue right approach is to pursue at this time.
Question: How can the legislative process Avenue at this incident once Republicans control Congress are appropriate? However, this scheme by the Republicans controlled Congress will get?
MR. CARNEY: Competent, because it is apt to apply for entry
Q just after the top of your comments on Iran.Ist one of the reasons why the administration is concerned the armed factions that it operates in Syria concerning the possibility of launching a direct proxy war with Iran, given the fact that you say, it helps to keep the arm of the Syrian government?
MR. CARNEY: I think – I would not tease out that far. I feel that we do not feel that further militarization of the situation in Syria is to take the right course. This is our contribution.We believe we must act while the window is still open to bring a political transition before we have a situation in Syria, which dissolves into a gang war or proxy war.
How do I think I mentioned before, there is obviously a problem in evaluating the need for close and evaluate and learn more about all elements of the opposition. We believe that those who are al-Qaida or al-Qaida in Iraq and to support other elements of fringe elements of the opposition that the widespread opposition seeks the installation of the democratic wishes of the Syrian people.Only all these things are considerations that we evaluate all the time, as we rethink our position on Syria.
Q is fixed, that the United States and Iran is clearly on the opposite side of this series, there is no concern that what happened in Syria could affect the chances of agreement connected the other big issue, the nuclear question?
MISTER. CARNEY: Well, they’re both super-questions, and in any case – especially with regard to the nuclear ambitions of Iran’s regime, they are specifically the problem.Their need to comply with its international obligations is to call on the international community and especially the P5-plus-1. Their behavior and participation in the Syrian crisis is another standard for the kind of – it is another indication of why the international community does not trust the Iranian regime to keep its word. It’s why we insist in our negotiations with them about their nuclear program, that we judge them by their deeds, not by their promises.
Q: John Jay, where the White House is going to hang the painting? And the President – he has seen it?And he believes in what it reveals no special quality about President Bush? (Laughter)
MAN. CARNEY: I’ll let the president deal with it. I think it is a happening, an open press event for the unveiling of his. And you’ll see, I think, where it’s going to hang. We provide some background documentation on the history of these portraits and the tradition of the baggy and hang them where ever they are and how they move around the house.
I do not know the answer to the question of whether the portraits sehen.Ich guess by now he has, and my guess is noble gas saying it out of us before the frost.Only I can not guarantee because I did not ask him about it.
Q UN organization take, from you? (Delight.)
MR. CARNEY:. Again, there is a process – we follow tradition, I think, is how – is the answer to the
Q Thank you, Jay.
MISTER. CARNEY:. Thank you all

Think I do not think you should say you’re at war with Islam. There are fundamentalists who choose to raise the Koran literally, but not everyone who believes in Islam is a fundamentalist. The Muslims are not terrorists in fact, have you thought about? Have you forgotten about the freedom of theology?
Moreover, America has enemies who are not Muslims.
Tag all your strict good / evil perspective.
Yes, many U.S. soldiers died, as well as some innocent people from other countries.If you ask me, this really is a war for oil everything, and it should ne `er began, and the last piece that should be done in America is the change in religious freedom, to end this line.
