Obama: "I have no sympathy for Hamas"

In a lengthy news conference with reporters Wednesday, President Obama defended Israel's right to defend itself against rocket attacks from Hamas, saying he had no sympathy for the group classified as a terrorist organization by the U.S.

He does, however, have "great sympathy" for the ordinary people struggling in Gaza, he said, as he laid out the U.S. goals to end the violence.
