Obama Tells Pakistani Leader About Ditching Press

Sunday, 11 Apr 2010 10:16 PM

President Barack Obama was overheard Sunday telling Pakistan's Prime Minister about the kerfuffle he caused a day earlier when he breached protocol and left the White House without members of the press in tow.

"Apparently I caused quite a problem," Obama told Yusuf Raza Gilani, noting that the media was unhappy about missing the trip to one of his daughter's soccer games.

Saturday morning, Obama left the White House about two hours before reporters were told to be in position to cover presidential activity. The White House press corps traditionally travels with the president anywhere he goes.

Obama and Gilani met Sunday in advance of a nuclear security summit this week in Washington.
