Obama nevertheless said while he was “sympathetic” to Sony’s concerns about the threats to attack theaters screening the film, he believed the studio had erred in canceling its release.

“We will respond. We will respond proportionately and we’ll respond in a place and time and manner that we choose,” Obama told a press conference

“We cannot have a society in which some dictator some place can start imposing censorship here in the United States.”
