White House: Obama Will Not Address Iran Taking U.S. Navy Ships In State Of The Union


White House communications director Jen Psaki tells CNN's Wolf Blitzer that President Obama does not plan to address two U.S. navy boats that have been taken into Iranian custody in his final State of the Union speech.

"There are no plans to address this issue," Psaki said on CNN. "This is an issue, like many others, that as President of the United States and commander in chief of the country, we address things that come up every single day, and he's certainly working today, even though the state of the union is tonight. So, he's tracking this closely, following this closely, but the State of the Union will not be about this issue."
