Obama 'pardons' Thanksgiving turkey

US president decides to pardon a Thanksgiving turkey but faces a whole host of problems.


    US residents are to mark the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday and Barack Obama, the president, has honoured the occasion by pardoning a turkey.

    A rather important decision.

    But Obama faces more difficult challenges. There are a host of issues, including funding for government, tax cuts, and an arms reduction treaty with Russia.
