White House takes web questions about intel failure

By Ed O'Keefe

Want an example of the Obama administration's Gov 2.0 and transparency efforts? Check out the 24-minute video debrief above, co-hosted Thursday afternoon by National Security Council Chief of Staff Denis McDonough and White House New Media Director Macon Phillips.

Shortly after President Obama addressed the nation about recent intelligence failures, and top officials briefed the press, McDonough fielded questions from online viewers.

Queries focused on details of the president's report, what steps the administration is taking to protect American airline passengers, U.S. anti-terror efforts abroad and the potential monetary costs of intelligence reform.

The Q&A is part of the White House Live series, where Phillips collects viewer-submitted questions for top officials to answer. It's not the most visually stimulating piece of video, but a strong example of how the Obama White House works to deliver the daily message across several platforms, through several officials.
