(Studio: Katie Couric) What President Obama said in his speech today about the Middle East especially about Syria reviewed. [In interview, Secretary of State Hillary CLINTON - says Obama was clear that we want to support the voices of democracy, but every situation--as Syria--is different; states we know there are forces at work in Syria; suggests there is slow progress in Libya: we are on the right path; notes there is no increasing pressure on Syria; defends the handling of the Middle East peace process; reiterates it is not proven that the government in Pakistan knew where Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden†† was, but someone somewhere knew.]
