Bob Woodward on Obama response to protests

As anti-US protests across the Muslim world continue, the BBC's Laura Trevelyan speaks to journalist and author Bob Woodward about what the Obama admistration can - and can not - do in this situation.

"I think because they know they can't control it, they're crossing their fingers," says Mr Woodward, the Washington Post veteran and author of The Price of Politics.

"It's the sort of irrational, angry behaviour that Obama detests more than anything."
