Friday during the White House press briefing, National Security Advisor Susan Rice abruptly left in the middle of a question after confusing reporters with her announcement President Barack Obama was going ahead with air strikes in Syria.
When reporters began to grill Rice about whether the president had already given the authorization to the militarily to bomb in Syria, Rice kept repeating they would not be releasing information on the timing of those air strikes. Reporters continued to push with several trying to explain their question is if the president has already given authorization.
Laughing uncomfortably Rice exited the room by interrupting a reporter mid-question saying, “Good to see you all.”
Press Secretary Josh Earnest went on for several more minutes refusing to answer whether the political process of authorizing air strikes in Syria is complete.
