British Prime Minister Cameron Welcomed to the White House

Hosted by

President Obama welcomed British Prime Minister Cameron to the White House today, after they watched an NCAA basketball last night in Ohio. At today's news conference, Cameron claimed "tangible progress in Afghanistan," but a British reporter said people in both countries aren't buying that. Admitting that his administration had focused early attention on Iraq, Obama asserted that he would have preferred to "getting Afghan strategy right...but that's not the cards we were dealt."
