US President Barack Obama speaks at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to mark its 10th anniversary in McLean, Virginia, April 24, 2015A day after revealing that the United States killed two Western hostages in a botched operation against Al-Qaeda, a mournful President Barack Obama assembled intelligence staff to pay tribute to their work and patriotism. “There may be those outside who question or challenge what we do,” a resolute Obama told officials at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence as he addressed the deaths of 73-year-old American Warren Weinstein and 39-year-old Italian Giovanni Lo Porto. Obama has appeared publicly to take “full responsibility” for the two men’s deaths, which officials suggested was a result of a drone strike on an Al-Qaeda compound in Pakistan in January. “It’s hard,” Obama admitted.
