U.S. President Barack Obama is pictured with first lady Michelle Obama while making a phone call from the U.S. Capitol immediately following his State of the Union Address, to inform John Buchanan that his daughter Jessica was rescued by U.S. Special Operations Forces in Somalia, in this photograph taken on January 24, 2012 and released on January 25.

Obama authorized the raid on Monday and military commanders gave the final go-ahead on Tuesday, Pentagon officials said. REUTERS/Pete Souza/Handout
