Obama hosts GCC at Camp David in MarylandBy Jeff Mason and Roberta Rampton CAMP DAVID, Md. (Reuters) – President Barack Obama vowed on Thursday to back Gulf allies against any “external attack,” seeking to reassure them of Washington’s iron-clad commitment to their security amid Arab anxiety over U.S.-led efforts to reach a nuclear deal with Iran. Hosting the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council for a rare summit at Camp David, Obama pledged that the United States would consider using military force to defend them and would also help counter Iran’s “destabilizing activities in the region.” “I am reaffirming our iron-clad commitment to the security of our Gulf partners,” Obama told a closing news conference at the presidential retreat outside Washington.
