In repeated questions from reporters in the White House, Presidential spokesman Jay Carney was asked what is the U.S. policy is regarding the location of the capital of Israel. When a female reporter asked him to identify it, Carney said that the Obama administration has not changed its position regarding the issue. The reporter asked him to clarify whether the U.S. recognizes Tel Aviv or Jerusalem as the official capital. Carney refused to answer clearly.
When a male reporter chimed in, and also demanded to know the White House position, Carney again refused.
