Obama and Uribe Just Like Old Pals in Monday's Meeting

Pres. Obama Meets with Pres. Uribe of Colombia

President Obama met with President Alvaro Uribe of Colombia in the Oval Office to discuss U.S.-Colombia relations on Monday. It was their first meeting since Obama became President, and was a major about face from Obama's strong concerns voiced on the campaign trail about Colombia's human rights record. They covered a lot of issues in their meeting, including the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement.

We'll have more on this in the coming days, but here is a link to the C-Span video of the joint press briefing that took place on Monday.
The president also responded to questions on the situation in Honduras surrounding the ousting of President Manuel Zelaya.
