The Obamas and Barbara Walters

Below is a statement by President-elect Barack Obama concerning the three day seige by terrorists in Mumbai, India:

“Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to the loved ones of the American citizens who lost their lives in the outrageous terrorist attacks in Mumbai. Our thoughts and prayers are with them, and with all who have been touched by this terrible tragedy.

“These terrorists who targeted innocent civilians will not defeat India’s great democracy, nor shake the will of a global coalition to defeat them. The United States must stand with India and all nations and people who are committed to destroying terrorist networks, and defeating their hate-filled ideology.

“There is one president at a time.  I will continue to closely monitor the situation on the ground in Mumbai, and am grateful for the cooperation of the Bush Administration in keeping me and my staff updated. We fully support the Bush Administration’s efforts to protect American citizens and assist the government of India during this tragic time,” said President-elect Obama.

At this time, 160 people have been killed since Wednesday night. Five were Americans. Three terrorists have been killed in a police security operation according to authorities, as the seige comes to a tragic conclusion.
