We're still so shocked that Sony has responded to threats of terrorism by hackers by pulling The Interview from theaters.

President Obama spoke today about the incident, and confirmed that North Korea was behind the attack against the studio.

Here were some of his words he offered on the hacking, and his thoughts he outlined on how the United States would respond:

"I wish they [Sony] would have spoken to me first.

Sony is a corporation, it suffered significant damage. There were threats against its employees. I am sympathetic to the concerns that they faced. Having said all that, yes, I think they made a mistake.

We cannot have a society in which a dictatorship someplace can start imposing censorship here in the United States.

The FBI announced today and we can confirm that North Korea engaged in this attack.

I think it says something interesting about North Korea that they decided to have the state mount an all-out assault on a movie studio because of a satirical movie starring Seth Rogen and James Franco.

I love Seth and I love James, but the notion that it was a threat to them gives you a sense of the regime we're talking about here. They caused a lot of damage and we will respond. We will respond proportionally, and we will respond in a place and time and manner that we choose. It's not something I will announce today here at a press conference."

Hmmm, does "respond proportionally" mean threatening some sort of state-sponsored propaganda film in North Korea?

Basically, we're not sure what a proportional response to this would be!

We'll keep you posted on how the United States deals with this.
