Defending his commitment to S. Korea, Obama cites bin Laden, Qaddafi

Speaking at a press conference alongside South Korean President Park Guen-hye, President Obama objected to a reporter who questioned U.S. commitment to South Korea: "Whether it's bin Laden or Qaddafi, if we say we're taking a position, I would think at this point the international community has a pretty good sense that we typically follow through on our commitments," he said.
