Obama: Shutdown damaged US economy

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says the government shutdown "inflicted unnecessary damage" to the U.S. economy and damaged America's credibility around the world.

Obama spoke from the White House hours after signing legislation to reopen the government following 16 days of a partial shutdown.
